Row Over Stilton Could Cause A Stink


Good morning. I'm David Greene. In the British village of Stilton they've made a cheese called Stilton since the 18th century, a tradition as old as our country. But in Britain, a couple of centuries - whatever. The government has told a pub in Stilton that it can't call its cheese Stilton.

The name is protected by EU law which says true Stilton cheese can come from three specific regions - not Cambridgeshire, where Stilton is located. The pub's landlord is weighing his legal options. He could cause a stink. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
