We keep our cheese in the fridge, but in a special container.
I fear that larders are a thing of the past. With central heating, there aren't really cool places to have one.
My parents house had one complete with marble slabs and a meat-safe.
In the 70s, they converted it to a downstairs loo

Did they still keep their pork pies in it though?

CW - currently living in a house with an outside loo and an air-raid shelter in the garden.

I used to keep the beer in the celler but the rats got to it "not a pretty sight". Now I like to keep the home brew close to me so it's in the kitchen.

Miss Prism's clearly spent too long in America. If every single room in your house is at a teperature cheese can't be stored, you've gone soft. You'll be telling people you feel their pain next.

The mark of a true Brit? Chilblains. And frost inside the bedroom widow - even if you're such a wimp you close it.

I'll be on the alert for that.
I swear that I don't have a fridge big enough to live in.

Somehow, I doubt it. I'm a Spurs fan. Right now I don't have room for anyone else's pain.

Yet more proof; It's grim up north.

That depends on whether, to paraphrase Hancock, the gravy moves about a bit.

In all honesty I had a culinary epiphany when I went to the north once - chips and gravy. Bloody lovely. The only good thing about the north - well apart from black pudding obviously.

Well we never made it to Melton Mowbray Region on the last visit, but we will be there in late August. My wife's convict ancestor came from the small village of Harby. Any information about this region would be greatly appreciated.
