British food products in Poland?

It is a question of taste.

Yes, for me gorgonzola is the all time king of cheeses... stanky and nasty and glorious.

I love those really stinky ones too!
Munster is a smelly one with a surprisingly mild flavour.

Agree re Munster. Another one of the same type (barking but non biting dog..) is "stinking bishop", a British cheese from Gloucestershire if I remember correctly. Used to buy it regularly when my family and I lived in London in the nineties..

"stinking bishop"

Yes, an excellent English cheese and not disimilar to Munster.

Indeed, so many great cheeses.
I did check out earlier how many varieties of cheese are made in a few countries, this is what I found.

1.Italy - 2,500 ( Well done Maf)
2.France - 1,600
3.UK - 700.

The best cheese you can find comes from Wisconsin:)

So did I and our sources disagree.
There are upwards of 1,000 types of cheese in the world, depending on the source you consult.
According to the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, there are 600 in Wisconsin alone.
And I agree Joker as I have bought all kinds of foreign cheeses and none of them compare to the Wisconsin cheeses.

Yes, and as Donald says, US wine (and food and cars and anything you can think of) is the best there is anywhere in the world!

Tuff to argue the facts isn't it ?

easier than getting spelling right it seems!!

and I nearly forgot, the fact of the day: Wisconsin produces almost 60% of all cheese varieties existing on the planet

And still made in Wensleydale itself.

Couldn't begin to imagine how in the world one could "outsource" cheese anyway! However, that's encouraging to know, thanks jon:-)
Does the same apply to Stilton and local varieties of port as well? Bass Ale still made in the UK?
jon357 63 | 14,120

Yes. Stilton is still made in a strictly controlled region. Bass Ale? I haven't seen that for years, however a quick look on Wikipedia says it's still made.

ROTFL!!!!!!

You need to get about more, American cheese is even worse than Polish cheese..... but you guys don't even understand good cheese!

People, panowie, venerable panke, let`s not generalize.

This is great injustice to speak about British food products in Poland. Why not in particular English, Zulu, Welsh, Pakistani, Scottish or let`s say Afgan or Irish food products? Those ethnicities are all part of Britain. And many more. Britain is great Mother of the World. Great pregnant abused Mother.

Wisconsin cheddar's not bad, Johnny, I gotta admit. Don't forget though, without the Swedes, US farming might have looked
very different, and I mean, cultivating those dairy products we both like so much:-)

More incomprehensible nonsense..... Crow, try posting in Polish, that might work better for you.

It quite obvious that you never had any Wisconsin cheese at all. Bc you wouldn't had make such a hilarious comment:)

British food is bland and tasteless, not very renowned for its cuisine are they?

How about some Yorkshire pudding? It look gross , but I actually liked it:)

Wisconsin cheese

You are right, I have never tried it and I'm sure it's very good.
But American cheese in general is pretty poor,even worse than Polish.
As for British food, yes, probably more bland than Polish, but much improved in recent years.

I cant imagine you get authentic America cheese in Europe? Im not talking about that rubbish that comes wrapped in plastic, it should be abolished!

I was offered a piece of pizza in Poland and I swear the cheese was made out of plastic. They were dumping ketchup on it as well, proplaby to help wash the faux cheese down.

Like I said, except for a few cheeses made down south in The Mountains, Poles can't make decent cheese.

I think we are talking about two different things here:

- industrial (processed) cheese which is the most ubiquitous type you find in most shops. Most of it is produced in the US (think cheese slices in burgers) , but Britain is also a strong contender, which is quite natural given both countries are (still) great proponents of industrialized/processed food (although things are changing)

- local artisan cheese. This is the norm in many continental European countries, but such cheese can also be found in Britain (farmers' markets) and in several US states, like Wisconsin or Vermont or others.

Good point.
I just checked out The Wisconsin Cheese website and yes, some of their cheeses look great.

It's at best 'pizza cheese' and at worst, it's "non-dairy pizza topping", sometimes called "cheese analogue".

I miss Lancashire cheese (the tangy kind), Coverdsle cheese (made near to where I'm from) and Shropshire Blue (a 70s invention but good).

Yes.The Zakopane cheeses are the only good ones in Poland.

Especially grilled. Ser KoryciƄski is quite good, and there's more of it in the bigger supermarkets now. It's a little softer than most U.K. cheeses.

Poland makes cheddar now, a passable one on a par with a supermarket own-brand. No Farmhouse Cheddar unfortunately, however we make that at home.

It was first time I couldn't eat piece of pizza and when they weren't looking, I tossed it out:(

yes, some of their cheeses look great.

Have you tried cheese curds? They are little balls of cheese that squeak in your mouth as you eat them and sooo delicious:)

I miss Lancashire cheese (the tangy kind), Coverdsle cheese

Im going to look for these in our European food market and see if I can find them here.....

I love cheese!!! and beer too:)
