Last week I made not just one, but two great food discoveries. A belter of a Blue Stilton and the perfect neutral carrier to gobble it up on.
The cheese, Colston Bassett Blue Stilton, was offered to me and a friend for tasting while buying some others at George Mewes, the new cheese shop on Byres Road, Glasgow. George, a chef for over 25 years, is hooked on perfectly matured, world-class Artisan cheese and stocks a great range from the British Isles, France, Italy, Spain and Switzerland. And the best bit of all: negligible overlap with Iain Mellis's selection, meaning 1) cheese choice in Glasgow's west end just got a lot wider, and 2) there's no need to pick and choose between one or other shop. The clever decision to stock a different range means you can maintain allegiance to Mellis's and support the newcomer.
