Favourite Cheese?

Summer is here and I'm munching my way through various Ploughman's. At present, my favourite cheese is Stilton!
Although I'm not a vegetarian, I do love dairy products.

Smoked Applewood! I have tried Stilton several times to see if it grows on my palate. It does - like a fungus - how can you eat that furry Yang? It's like really multi-worn man's socks in the bottom of the washing bin. Stenching stuff!

Talking of cheese, has anyone got any comments on that shop - Cheese Please, is it? Are the prices dearer than the supermarkets? And do they do free cheese tasting samples like Middle Farm Shop? I used to go out there for a free feast up when I was hungry.

Cheese please sells fantastic variety, ask and you can taste, they are nice people who will spend time helping you to find that special cheese bit pricey though.
Whats wrong with a good well aged stilton, creamy, mellow perfect for mushrooms in blue cheese sauce.

Oooh there's nothing like a mexican cheese with bits of chillis in it. Oh and mature cheddar and a hint of marmite, on toast and slung under the grill for a couple of mins. Drool.....

a cheese board, good mature port or a fantastic wine served on the patio in the evening sun, bliss

Definitely a nice bit of roquefort or some Port Salut. In fact any cheese will do.

"Rutland" Cheddare used to be a favourite of mine. It came from the county of Rutland (before the county was absorbed into Leicestershire) and it was absolutley divine - made with beer and garlic. Yummy yum yum!
Does anyone know of anything similar out there?

I like smelly cheeses like Pont l'Eveque, Reblochon and Mont d'Or but avoid German Musik Kase. It smells vile and the taste lives up to its odour. Even the dog turns its nose up at it.

Y Fenni, made with beer and wholegrain mustard. good tangy taste. Never cooked or toasted though.
For a winters supper take a brie or camembert, remove the waxed paper and put it back in its box. Pierce the top of the cheese and either rub garlic over the top or put garlic into the piercings and a dessert spoon of white wine over the top. Cover with the lid and whack it in a hot oven for 25mins or so. Remove the lid break up some good bread and push the bread through the cheese skin and in to the molten cheese inside then apply to your mouth. Fantastic. And you dont dirty any dishes to boot.

Now you're talking Taff....And if you spend a bit more on a 'better' camenbert it makes all the difference.I recently learned my cholesterol is high and I was advised to cut back on my cheese intake.So I gave my Mum my large lump of really tasty mature cheddar yesterday...Cos I'm finding it very hard not to eat a chunk with a pickled onion when I feel peckish...I miss my cheese.

Zola, my advice to you is do what I have done. Give up all dairy products except cheese.

I used to eat a lot of eggs.I love a boiled egg and soldiers for breakfast.That's my comfort food...And scrambled eggs and grated parmesan is another favourite.I have eaten free range eggs since watching Hugh and his chicken run,and switched to organic milk recently...But it's still all fat isn't it.And I like milk in my many cups of tea I drink in a day too.I'm finding it hard,but I have got to cut down my fat...

Cor, Lewes folk really like their cheese don't they? Maybe we should develop our own local cheese - Harvey's may be a popular flavour.

Worst cheese-one called Tete du Moine which translates as monks head. Should have been called "monks socks after vigorous exercise and suffering from atheletes foot", but it would be quite a long translation. Avoid.
