    I don't know if anyone here can assist, as many of you are on the Western side of the Atlantic, and I have a north-west European question. But as a Fedorista, here I am.

    As part of the Waterloo 200 commemorations next year, many re-enactors will be going to Belgium for an event.

    My partner and I are in charge of the catering for a group of Cornish people going over.

    We want to take as little food as possible with us.

    So, my question:

    Any ideas of as to a cheese, Belgian, or French that is similar to cheddar? A full fat, hard cows milk cheese?


    And if you have been, Thanks for listening.

    You might actually find Cheddar in supermarkets, but failing that Cantal is similar. Comté makes a good cheese sauce too.

    Not sure what you are driving at, but Dutch Gouda is a hard cheese and has been an article of international commerce for hundreds of years. They probably had Gouda or something similar at Waterloo the first time around.
