Dare you take on Britain's smelliest cheese?

Stinking Bishop has to be whiffed to be believed. It’s been described as smelling like something between a ‘rugby club changing room’ and ‘old nappies’. I once bought some as gift and made the mistake of transporting it with me by train. There’s no containing the smell – even when the offender is swaddled in layers of plastic, a cardboard box and wrapping paper. So why has this cheese, washed in the perry (pear juice) from Stinking Bishop pears, become so popular? Well, surprisingly, it tastes delicious; more subtle than the odour implies, creamy and full. It also had a major helping hand when it featured in the 2005 animated film Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit where its pungent powers are used to bring Wallace back to life. You can try Stinking Bishop, along with hundreds of other British cheeses, in September at the biennial British Cheese Festival in Cardiff, Wales. Stinking Bishop Cheese
