‘Royal George’ cheese is named after the founder of the cheesemakers’ English dairy. It was in 1957 that George Kenyon started to make his traditional English cheeses in the ancient market town of Garstang, where the ruins of the royalist Greenhalgh Castle (c1490) stand. The sons of George, Neil and John, have since been producing Kosher cheese for the UK market. Royal George cheeses are the first ever English cheeses to be certified Kosher by the O.U.
It is made to the very highest of standards to be delicious and flavorsome and was available at Kosherfest 2004 for us to sample for the first time. The launch of Royal George label at Kosherfest is the event of the year for this English Cheesemaker.
Cheddar was invented in Somerset, England in the 15th century on a dairy farm near Cheddar Gorge. It was a favorite of Queen Elizabeth 1st and one of the gastronomic delights of court. Cheddar quickly became a part of the staple diet, great hunks of it eaten with bread and washed down with strong ale. The recipe was later taken to the USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and to anywhere else that the English emigrated and is revered the world over. Smooth, crumbly and tangy, this is a great example of possibly the worlds most famous cheese.
