UK Cheese Tour: Lunch!

Well, to be honest, I am not sure this is an actual Scottish lunch, but it is the perfect one for me.  From the top, I have a small wedge of Flower Marie, an even smaller wedge of Criffel, Comte AOC, and Landana aged goat’s milk. Paired with some charcuterie and a variety of breads and I am all set.

More on the shops and the cheese later, but for now it’s time to eat.  Praise Cheeses!
