Wife of Bath

Sometimes when I get a cheese I like it, and sometimes I don’t. I seem to blog more often about cheeses I don’t like though or cooking with cheese, must change that and start to blog about the cheeses I do like.

Well this is a cheese I think is okay, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy again.

I was at a farm shop and they had a nice looking cheese called Wife of Bath, it looked and sounded interesting and was sold on that. I should have asked to taste some first but I thought it looked really nice.


I got home and to be honest it was quite bland and lacked substance. It reminded me of Doux De Montagne and if you recall my views on that I said:

To be honest I didn’t think that much of it. The flavour was too mild for me, though I did like the texture. If you like Edam or Port Salut then you will probably enjoy this cheese, though expect the flavour to be quite mild in comparison.

With the Wife of Bath cheese, my views are almost the same.

This is a harder cheese but still lacks “oomph”.  It might make an interesting addition to a cheeseboard, but otherwise nothing to go out and try and find.
