My friend and fellow blogger, Mo (Fresh Eyes on London) introduced me to Neal's Yard located in the Borough Market of London back in September when I was there.
She was stopping in to pick up some cheese for dinner later that day but, for me it was quite the experience. There is quite literally no cheese shop in the states that looks anything like this place. At least none that I've ever seen.
I was in total awe seeing all those wheels of cheese stacked high on one wall. I had never seen anything quite like it.
So while Mo was purchasing a few different cheeses, I was snapping photos like crazy. I'm sure the clerks behind the counter were amused at my cheese shopping innocence.
And I have to say, all of the cheeses she purchased were delicious.
As a side note, a week after I returned home from that fabulous trip, I was shopping for some cheese at my local Whole Foods Market and was surprised to find they had some Neal's Yard cheeses in their cheese case. I asked if they had imported them from England and the man behind the counter said yes. He said they get cheese from there quite often. Of course, the cheese display at Whole Foods, is nothing compared to this wonderful shopping experience.
