    Stropshire Blue is the Prince of cheeses. Available in the finer cheese shops, it’s like a strong cheddar with blue cheese veins running through it.

    I would scrap the brie and feta, and put in Gruyère and Jarlsberg, at least. Although someone might put in a word for Wensleydale and Venezuelan beaver cheese.

    Tried to think of a cheese food pyramid joke but failed.

    But, realistically, a version of the food pyramid could be the food chain pyramid. Plants at the bottom, vegetarians above, peaked by the predators. It doesn’t work as a food pyramid because few preds get eaten and it’s (shrug) obvious and thereby irrelevant. Sorry. Tired morning brain.
