This Stinking Bishops has an altogether more pleasant fragrance, though: sharp, edible and oh so cheesy. Come for a wedge of Marcel Petit Comté from France and the washed rind Stinking Bishop from the UK and stay for the whole baked camembert served with bread-and-butter pickles, vegetables and sourdough or the French Onion Mac ‘n’ Cheese that’s so cheese-heavy we ch”
