  1. (a) Affinage
  2. (c) 1954 (Although rationing formally ended in 1954, cheese production remained depressed for decades afterwards. During rationing, most milk in Britain was used to make one kind of cheese, nicknamed Government Cheddar)
  3. (b) 17th Century (English cheesemakers realized that they could make more money if they skimmed off the cream — to sell it separately or make butter from it. But in doing so, most of the colour was lost, since the natural orange pigment is carried in the fatty cream. They began adding colouring from saffron, marigold and carrot juice to pass their products off as the full-fat, naturally yellowish-orange cheese that Londoners had come to expect.)
  4. (c) A Pear, in this case one that was used to wash the rind. That pear was known as stinking bishop
