Super

Versatile, creamy, attractive cheese.

Not as mature as anticipated, can be pricey.

What is this Cathedral City of which you speak? Cathedral City is the name of a cheese which hit our supermarket shelves big time relatively recently. We have long been aware of many types of cheese in our supermarkets and delis (gloucester, cheddar brie etc) but branded hard cheese has largely...

Comparably cheap, versatile, easy to get

Quite mild for a mature cheddar, questionable ethi...

Summary A decidedly average cheese, this is reasonably low on taste and isn’t actually that cheap when it’s not on promotion. You can do plenty with it, but on its own it doesn’t have that tangy appeal that good mature cheddar should always hit you with. Roses Are Red, Violets Are Green, Who Left...

Noe that I am aware of.

I often have a look at the Ciao product of the week only to find that I have either never heard of the product or if I have heard of it I have never tried, tested or used the product so when I had a look this week I was pleasantly surprised to see it is one of my regular buys, Cathedral City...

What? Where? Who makes it? Cathedral City is a brand name that is manufactured under the Dairycrest umbrella of companies. This cheese is made to a “special traditional recipe” (according to Dairycrest’s website) in the West country, where it is matured for 12 months”. It is a pasteurised...

Nothing.

Cathedral City Mature Cheddar This is only my second review of a product of the week. I generally find that the product of the week is not something that I use. As I am very fond of strong cheese I am able to review this weeks "Product of the week". I have used my standar rating guide of 1 - 5. 1...

None whatsoever

When Ciaos product of the week came up as Cathedral City Mature Cheddar Cheese this week, I decided to have a go as this is the only cheese we keep in our house, purely because every member of my household holds this cheese as their firm favourite, and heres why ………. ~What is Cathedral City?~...

“The best cheese ever”

published 05/01/2012

Tastes great, versatile, good packaging

Expensive

Cathedral City is without a doubt at the top of my cheese list (a metaphorical cheese list you understand – I don’t actually have one!) Forget chocolate, biscuits, crisps and even alcohol, cheese is my greatest weakness.The knowledge of what it could do to my waste-line stops me, but I could...

Introduction I am a great lover of cheese, from the strong stiltons through to the mild and creamy goat’s cheese, I try it all. And when it comes to cheddar, the stronger and fuller flavoured the better. I usually buy the Cathedral City Extra Mature Cheddar as it is very often on a “buy one get...

“Blessed are the cheesemakers”

published 07/02/2010

Smooth, flavoursome, easy to find, often on offer

Still a mass-produced cheese

Well now, "Cathedral City" eh? You do have to wonder whether the good people at Dairy Crest have *entirely* thought this one through. After all, there are quite a few cathedral cities in Britain, and - without wanting to cause any offence to their inhabitants - I think it's fair to say that some...

No, it's nothing rude. But one time I probably did veer towards that direction when it came to Cheddar cheese. The trouble is you see that supermarket Cheddar was going through a bad phase until about the '90s when they started to sell cheddar that didn't taste more or less like bland wax. In the...

“Mature...yet mellow!”

Smooth, creamy taste, versatile, good packaging

Can be expensive

One item of food that you will always find in my fridge is cheese. I see cheese as a staple food item which has so many uses. One of my favourite cheeses is cathedral city mature cheddar cheese which is one that I buy regularly. Cathedral city mature cheese can be purchased in most supermarkets...

“Cheese But Not aS I like It”

published 20/02/2010

its cheese

its not nice cheese

Cathedral City Mature Cheddar.... I have to admit to being a bit of a cheeseaholic and will often refrain from buying nicer cheese so the fear of scoffing the whole slab down is taken away! I am mostly a lover of the real strong type of cheese so I will often opt for the Cathedral City Cheese so...

Will impress the whole family

Very high in calories and fat

I really really like cheese - all types - brie, roquefort, camembert, mozzerella, the lists goes on. However I see these as more of a treat and if there's an everyday cheese that I use for my sandwiches, pizzas, cooking or even a little nibble it's got to be cheddar. I've tried a few different...

Have to share with the cat

Cathedral City Cheese I've noticed has been advertised a lot on TV lately. I saw its been on special offer but one get another free in our Co-op so I got 2 400g blocks the other day for £3.89. I don't eat a lot of cheese but for some reason thought I'd treat myself as it was on offer (and I also...
