I am very disappointed with the selection of cheeses in Waitrose, Lewes.
To all my cheesy friends in the area, can someone recommend anywhere to purchase the finest Stilton?
Thanks in advance.

The cheese shop in Ashbourne. Or maybe you should try Shropshire Blue from one of the delis in Ludlow.

Stilton can be good this time of year, but is at its best end of the year, hence its association with Yuletide, because of the grass the cattle feed on. , It hardly matters where you buy, the very finest Stilton is not around in the middle of summer.

Beckworths and Cheese Please both do lovely cheeses. Brighton Sausage co is also good but, obviously, not Lewes based.
I was pleasantly surprised with some cheese from Waitrose (they do Godminster which is my favourite cheddar and had a nice creamy cheese like Vignot) but the local cheese shops are head and shoulders above.

Next time you're up in town, I'd be tempted to search for some Stichelson. It's far superior to Stilton and can be bought at the deli in Neal's Yard, Covent Garden for rather a lot of money. You could also try asking at the Cheese shop to see if they stock it (after all, they really are rather good at that sort of thing ). A quick google should be able to find it locally.

You could try making your own. Plenty of tutorials on YouTube. Do a search for Gavin Webber.

This Saturday in the precinct. At least 3 local producers with a vast array wonderful cheeses. Also Maxine in May Farm Cart in the Riverside has a small selection of local cheese alongside locally raised meat in her butchers and now a small veg shop.

Stichelton is what Colston Bassett Stilton used to be before the legal restriction on what you can call stilton be was imposed: unpasteurised.
It's great if you can find it.

I have a very soft cheese fermenting and if Waitrose want to purchase a good full then I can oblige.
