Stinking Bishop cheese, despite its alarming name and smell, is mild-flavoured and quite delicious. The smell arises from bacterial action on the perry, soaked into the rind.

Famed more for its pungent smell than its flavour is the notorious stinking bishop cheese. "It's an English spin on a French style such as an Epoisses," says cheese retailer Pong. Surprisingly mild in taste, the cheese's smell comes from its rind, which is washed in perry made from the "stinking bishop" variety of pear.
