They can relate to you because they are human too. WOW, that cheese sure is tasty. To put it simply, everyone loves cheese. The British, however, feel that cheese is often overlooked: it is usually served last at dinner gatherings, and in restaurants, they often have to choose between dessert and cheese. Therefore, Pong was developed to put a stop to this insanity and give cheese its due.
In the United Kingdom, nearly all households consume at least some cheese each year, with the typical citizen consuming 10 kilograms. Sounds like a lot, but the French, Italians, Greeks, and Germans eat more than twice as much cheese daily as the typical American because they eat more often (for example, breakfast).
Pong was created so that you would have access to the highest quality cheeses available, including those from the best artisanal and independent makers in the UK and Europe. It takes a great deal of skill and knowledge to properly prepare each cheese, as they each have their own unique flavor and structure. Whether it’s the strangely colored but incredibly delicious “Oxford Blue” or the now-famous “Stinking Bishop,” any of Pong’s cheeses would be worthy of a place in the limelight.
Pong was invented by two buddies from Bath, England (also known as the “Napa Valley of cheese”). Since its inception, The Cheese Club has been the most popular cheese subscription service in the UK, thanks to its expert founders’ ability to select only the finest cheeses from around the globe and deliver them to members on a monthly basis.
Is cows milk cheese good?
