Tradition of The Last Night Of The Proms....

One of the most patriotic nights of all for us Brits...


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Proms
When Britain first, at Heaven's command
Arose from out the azure main;
This was the charter of the land,
And guardian angels sung this strain:
"Rule, Britannia! rule the waves:
"Britons never will be slaves."

Still more majestic shalt thou rise,
More dreadful, from each foreign stroke;
As the loud blast that tears the skies,
Serves but to root thy native oak.
"Rule, Britannia! rule the waves:
"Britons never will be slaves."

What is England’s favourite cheese? Most would argue it’s a draw
between Cheddar perhaps the most popular cheese in the world, and
Stilton, a fine blue that’s long been hailed as the “King of Cheeses.”


But whether you’re partial to a smooth, mellow cheese or one that
offers a pungent piquant “bite,” one thing’s for certain: England is
home to a wonderful selection of cheeses. From traditional regional
styles to modern creamery cheeses made by small producers, England’s
favourites have achieved renown and prominence everywhere.


Since there are actually too many delicious varieties to list, here is
a roundup of Britain’s favourites. Who knows – you just might find
a new rival for your most-loved cheese.


Somerset Brie

Stinking Bishop

Yorkshire Blue

Stilton

Cheshire

Double Gloucester

Lancashire

Leicester



And my favourite of all, a beautiful Extra Mature Cheddar....Not a taste like it in the world!
