Wet and slimy.

General Comments
Cathedral City Cheddar cheese is eminently forgettable. It has a spurious identity: precisely which Cathedral City does it pretend to represent? I wonder if it is really made in Britain or just repacked. There is no clue, except that the plastic packaging doesn't carry the Farm Tractor logo. This logo is the subtle way to show that the food reaches certain standards, rather than some diktat agreed between factory and supermarket and EU bureaucrat.

Five minutes of investigation revealed that Cathedral City originated in St Albans (although it's now made in Davidstow in Cornwall). So there is nothing spurious about the name, nor is there any pretence. It was no surprise to find that mature Cathedral City, whilst certainly a little waxy, has an otherwise excellent taste. Probably the best tasting of the mass-produced cheeses.

Cathedral City cheese is made at the Davidstow Creamery in Cornwall, using a traditional West Country recipe. It is then matured for many months to develop its distinctive flavour. It is a very British product!
