It’s a best kept local secret that the artisan cheese retailer that supplies to the likes of Tom Aikens makes the mother of all baguettes. £4.50 will buy you a traditional, crusty French style baguette, packed with a cheese of your choice (you name it), fresh or sundried tomato, posh leaves, artichoke and  parma ham, bresaola or some other expensive, wafer thin slice of meat. The baguette comes wrapped up simply in a sheet of paper and you can carry it away like a Parisian, or have it in store, if the pungent smell of “the cheese cave” is bearable.
