Numerous are the cheesemakers

Now here's a thing. Apparently the Brits make more cheese than the French. Hard to believe, I know, but there are now 833 different varieties being churned out in the UK compared to the French's 450. And I'm not talking just Cheese Strings and Dairylea, but proper stuff made from cow's, goat's, ewe's and even buffalo milk.

My question is how much of it do we eat? Let's hope this mean the arrival of a regularly replenished cheeseboard in restaurants and family homes but I have my doubts.
