A lot of the souvenirs at the Elvis shop at Graceland (Memphis USA) are made in China!

Elizabeth's dad wrote:I think I'm right in saying that the term cheddar doesn't refer to a place of origin, but the process by which the cheese is made 'cheddaring' and it therefore cannot be protected to an area under EU rules.

And yes, I know that makes me sound like a smartarse. I can't help with the Scottish bit of it.


Moot point, because the process per se is named after the village where it originated. This in itself would not bar the name 'cheddar' being granted regional status.

30+ years in intellectual property, so not much investigation needed :)

If you think about the process rather than the place, the same logic applies to Champagne and to Scotch whisky and indeed to Harris Tweed - all are made by a process originally unique to the location. I am not familiar in any detail with the other products, but common sense would dictate that since the product has a unique property it must have either unique ingredients or be made by a unique process, or both, so the place and the process become for these purposes synonyonymous.

As for the taste of Lidl's cheeses, my own preference is for the extra mature, a strong, mature *manly V6* sort of cheese... :lol:
