Tinglestone cheese is one of the 2,500 cheeses in this category

Etymology

This huge section was originally entitled 'Cheeses of the World', accurate but a little too wordy when menu layouts are considered. Young Emma solved this conundrum at a stroke. Here's how:

Emma, about six years old I would guess, and her dad were cycling along the seafront between Walmer Castle and Deal Castle at the close of an Easter day. He called to her "What would you like for your tea tonight, Emma?" She paused, then pedaled off, shouting in a sing-song manner; "Just Cheese", "Just Cheese", "Just Cheese".

And so it shall be. Thank you Emma, whoever you are.
