I was recently looking for a BIG cheddar to go with a BIG wine, and I discovered this treat from England.  It is a raw cow’s milk cheddar from Montgomery’s Farm in south Somerset.  It is made in the traditional style and is aged for over a year wrapped in muslin cloth and stored on wooden shelves.  It sells for $27/pound.

Try it with a big, tannic wine such as the amazing 2004 Venge Oakville Merlot, available at Bacchus and Venus in Sausalito.
