I love cheese too. I don't know about marriage, though. I certainly wouldn't turn down a bleu job.

Oh, what the hell.


What did the blind man say after being handed a cheese grater?

I've had some 15 year cheddar before and it was amazing. I can't even imagine how good 40 year cheddar would be.... nomnomnomnom

I'm sure it's just like wine tastings. Where poseurs circle-jerk about how much better something "exclusive" tastes despite having absolutely no ability to discern any difference.

Inadvertently aged cheddar? I would probably pass. The folks who age cheese, wine, scotch, rum, etc., longer purposefully tend to know what is needed for the cheese, wine, scotch, rum, etc., making process. "Meh" cheddar cheese aged over a long period of time will produce something at best slightly less "meh".

Probably so. I've got two requirements for cheese I like: Stinky & Bitter, but not rotten. Don't even care if it comes from an aerosol can.

That's about as snobbish as I'll get.

The thing is, there *is* a difference but it takes time and effort to find it. It usually isn't by trying to impress other people though. And sometimes it has nothing to do with a higher price either.

The sliver I had was awesome.
However, there are several 5 year old cheeses local to me that are very good and to be honest, a three year old from my favorite place (too many flatlanders there already, I am not going to advertise) that tastes wonderful.

It's been compared to a good Parmesan; which at the $60/oz they're asking for some of makes me wonder 'why not just get some good Parmesan'?

/And really, $60/oz. for something you forgot to pull out of the freezer back in the Carter or Reagan administration?

This is why we need to get rid of state sponsored / recognized marriage. Who am I (or anybody else for that matter) to say that human - dairy product marriage is wrong? For most people fromage marriage would be much better than human - human marriage. Freedom!!!!

Oh good, you saved me the trouble of paging you. I wondered if you'd made it to this thing.

Do you have an opinion on Bleu Mont's bandaged cheddar?? I haven't tried it yet, but I know it's won awards and drives foodies crazy.

It's amazing how delicious a simple cheese sandwich can be. Today I had some Cabot New York Extra Sharp tucked into half of an Arnold 8 Grain Pocket Thin, with Duke's mayo. Pure heaven in a pita pocket!

I don't even drink wine, and I can tell that you don't know what you're talking about. Lucky for you, there is Kraft American cheese and this nifty wine in a box.

Note that they drove from Minnesota to attend. So... no matter how boring Wisconsin is, Minnesota is worse.

I am having issues posting, however, I have not tried the Bleu Mont yet.
( or to put it another way, I do not remember it during cheese tastings)

cheese mart is not my favorite due to their prices. To wit: this week I am driving from 5:am until when I finish with a couple of foodies to get cheese from the producers that my father (departed) requested for his friends. One of his requests for his friends that grew up in this area that are running churches outside of Wisconsin.

Contact me at my ultrafark address so I can drop something you may enjoy.
Or, post on LTHforum which is the best option for food in our area.

A disturbingly high percentage of women's online dating profiles list "cheese" as a favorite item (usually as the very first or very last item). I don't know what to make of it.
 
2012-10-07 09:45:34 PM
I can see the cheese luv; I was in one of those fancy-schmancy cheese shops in the "sucker the tourists" district and tried something out of a sample tray, which was this "26-month aged Dutch something-or-other." It was very hard and very crumbly and $21 per pound and it was like being punched in the face with flavor. So I kind of get the cheese snobbery. (And yeah, I bought four ounces of that stuff.)

I plan to do a lot of Christmas shopping out of that cheese shop, so I suppose I've become one of Them. Please forgive me.

Sightings and smellings of lethal X-14 have been reported.
DO NOT approach this cheese.
DO NOT eat this cheese.
Do NOT attempt to move it.
If safe to do so, cover with a wet blanket and
Contact the CEA immediately.
TAKE NO RISKS. X-14 is a KILLER.
