Celebrate British Cheese Week

Celebrate British Cheese Week

You may find it hard to believe but there are over 700 British cheeses produced in the UK!

Even us Brits often opt for European cheeses such as Feta, Mozzarella and Parmesan, but there are many delicious British alternatives.

And cheese is a cheap source of protein too. The British Cheese Board analysed the cost per gram of protein in 14 popular protein-rich foods to find that the nation’s favourite cheese, Cheddar, ranked second best for protein value after the humble peanut.

At 1.97pence per gram of protein for mild Cheddar cheese, Cheddar was more than twice as cost effective as turkey, two and a half times more economical than prawns, and more than three times cheaper than lamb steaks.

In the 2013 Dairy Diary – out now! – there are plenty of purse-friendly recipes, featuring delicious British cheese.
