Found more Brie aux Truffe (@ the Marche' 440). Marche' Atwater ran out and said they only get it at Xmas time.

THIS is worth getting worked up about.
Awesome stuff.

Don't get the hype over Etorki either. Pretty mediocre to me.



<gasp!>



Hey, thank God there's a lot of different cheeses made. Can you imagine if everyone had exactly the same tastes?

Someone should start making different kinds of wines, too, just in case people's tastes vary in that area as well. Smile

Rondoux Triple Cream 'Soft Surface Ripened' -- very similar to Camembert but as rich as sucking on a stick of sweet butter. Comes in a small 120g round packaged in a thin wood drum. Absolutely wonderful in the way that only 45% butterfat can be. Smile A little bit goes a long way.

A great cheese. I could make a meal out of Epoisses, a good baguette, and a nice white wine with some good acidity. But I could only do it about once every year or two. Smile

"What cheeses are you eating?"
All of them. Saw an episode of Alton Brown the other night where he suggested what to do with those bits of leftover cheeses. Made this last night, and it was very good.

*******************************
Fromage Fort

1 lb. of leftover cheeses at room temp
1/4 c. white wine
3 T. unsalted butter
2 T. fresh parsley leaves
1 small clove of garlic

Remove any rinds from hard cheeses. Grate hard cheeses and cut others into 1/2" cubes. Place ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth, approx. 2 minutes. Serve with crackers immediately or chill 1 hour for firmer consistancy.
******************************

I added the juice from 1 lemon wedge to the above for a bit brighter taste. The beauty of this recipe is that it will work with whatever cheeses you have on hand. Just toss them all in together, but make sure you don't have too many salty cheeses in the same batch.

I just took a Pienza from my Pecorino (as I have said numerous time to my special lady friend). Seriously just had some aged pecorino with some 2001 Barbi -Delicious! Reminds me of my time in Tuscany!

We made a meal out of Epoisses last night. My wife wasn't feeling well, so we cancelled our plans, but I had an Epoisses sitting out for four hours. I wasn't about to wrap it up and refrigerate it, so it was to be my dinner, but my wife started to feel better, so we shared it, but I had 2/3 of it. Had a 2002 Laughing Magpie with it.


Just one more sip.

<bump> Discovered a really delicious blue goat cheese yesterday. Bleu du Bocage, a raw milk cheese from France, which is surprisingly sweet. I was expecting something much stronger. Not cheap though at $79/kg.

We had an appetizer last night at our local favorite restaurant that was a Brie & Strawberry Crostini with Macadamia. Holy crap it was good. I've never been a huge Brie fan, but what a combination.

Do you make your own membrillo?

Also suggest Manchego with a Confit d'oignons.
If you can source the one from Chez Bernard even better.
Just put a very small dollap onto a small slice. Gorgeous!
