A Stinking Great Picnic!

Summer is upon us, which means weekends at the beach or in the country with a gingham rug and a wicker basket. So if you're off on a summertime picnic with friends and family, here's some inspiration for enjoying some Stinking Bishop alongside your usual picnic favourites.

In a Sandwich

Cut up a crusty, artisan loaf of bread, top with a layer of sliced tomatoes and then spread on a wedge of Stinking Bishop for a fresh, flavoursome summer sandwich. (This is Charles Martell's favourite way to eat the cheese!)

As a Cheeseboard

Create individual mini cheese boards for each picnic goer. Fill a small lunchbox with a slice of creamy Stinking Bishop, rich Cropwell Bishop Stilton and a light Spenwood, then finish with a few crackers and a pot of fruit chutney.

With Your Ploughman's

Upgrade your everyday Cheddar Ploughman's and opt for a slice of Stinking Bishop instead. Complete this traditional British dish with tomatoes, sliced spring onions, pickle and chewy bread - and add halved grapes to the mix to bring the flavours together.

In a Burger

Taking a disposable barbecue with you? Grill some succulent beef burgers, top with a wedge of Stinking Bishop and sandwich in an artisan roll or burger bun. For a real treat, spread the bread with a layer of pear chutney.

As an Afternoon Snack

If you're looking for an after-lunch light bite, pair a slice of Stinking Bishop with a small glass of Perry. The two flavours complement each other perfectly and are a great way to finish off a relaxing summer picnic as the sun sinks in the sky.

In a Quiche

The quintessential picnic item, a quiche or savoury tart offers a delicious means of enjoying Stinking Bishop. Whether your tart includes onions, mushrooms or tomatoes, replace the usual Cheddar or cheese you use with slices of Stinking Bishop for a tart with a difference.

Make sure you share your picnic snaps with us on social media or tell us how you enjoy Stinking Bishop!
