Hebden Bridge Big Green Weekend

What a fantastic weekend, selling local Todmorden Cheese at the Hebden Bridge Big Green Weekend with local Cheese Royalty Jean Hartley from the Crumbly Cheese Stall.

There were some questions regarding just how 'local' and 'green' the market actually was, but you don't get more local than Pextenement Cheese made just 3.2 miles away (3.3 if you count the distance walked by the cows to be milked!).

The Big Green Weekend is an annual event but Pextenement Cheeses are also available in Hebden Bridge at the monthly Farmers Market, Pennine Provisions, Valley Organics and Relish Global Eatery.

This picture was taken at the start of the day. The pile of cheeses went by mid-afternoon.

SJ's Breakfast

Some people like cornflakes, others prefer toast and jam. Not my friend Sarah - she is quite partial to a piece of Pexommier for breakfast.

Kept at room temperature, this piece was ripened to perfection. A perfect specimen of a Pexommier whose life was cut short by SJ's hunger.
