The Cheese Place - Boston Spa Cheese

Boston Spa is a small village very near to where I live in Tadcaster.  There's a bustling high street, which is fantastic to see, but it could be busier (although part of me doesn't want it to be busier - I find it hard enough to park as it is!).  When I can I like to use my local shops over the supermarket - I'm lucky to have a great butcher, a farm shop, a bakery and a cheese shop to buy from.

I like cheese, but I don't know much about it - other than I enjoy eating it.  Having a good local cheese shop The Cheese Place is fantastic for me, and having a friendly face running the shop means I can go in and admit to being a bit clueless and it's not too much trouble to get some advice.  

In the last few weeks I've had some Yorkshire Blue, two different goats cheeses and a Buffalo Blue.  This week I think I'm going to be in the market for a hard cheese - I'll be tweeting @bostonspacheese in advance to see what is recommended for me to pick.

















There's also a selection of pickles and chutneys to purchase, and a very tempting selection of wine - I was gazing wistfully at a very expensive bottle when I was last in.

I was very exciting to see a tweet about a cheese club starting up soon too - I'd love to go along to that, I find it hard to get over to Leeds on an evening now so haven't been to the Leeds based club Homage2Fromage.
