What cheese are you eating?

In the past couple of days, some really good and unusual cheese:

Petit Livarot-from Normandy,pungent soft, reminded me of taleggio. The group we were with wolfed it down with port. I don't know if that was the best choice, but the cheese was popular.

5 year aged gouda-hard cheese with a nuttiness to it. Good with port.

Snow White Goat Cheddar- very white, and slightly milder than a white cheddar but with just a little zing to it. This would be good to try with sauvignon blanc.
Just returned from a cheese tasting in Victoria, BC. Some great cheeses, but the standouts (I wrote them down so I can try to buy these when we get back home) were...

- Blackburn, and Reserve la Parade, both firm, both from Quebec

- Torte Marscarponi, rich and creamy with veins of blue running through it (Italian)

- Cashel Bleu, French, similar to Roquefort but a bit milder, creamy

- Osulratim, firm, French, slightly salty, good with wine

- Etorki, mild, yellow, medium-firm, rich, the real winner for me; the best new cheese I've had in a long time.

I may have misspelled some of the names, but phonetically I think I'm pretty close. Smile

Do you recall where this is from, Seaquam?



Sorry, meant to include that. It's French, from the foothills of the Pyrenees. Outstanding cheese. This one and the Osulratim were the two that almost everyone picked as best.

Cavallaro at Marche de l'Ouest sells it all the time. I'm sure the Fromagerie Atwater sells it. I've even seen it at Metro sometimes.

Next time we get together with cheese, can you try to remember to bring this? I don't trust my memory and would really like to try this one. It sounds like something I'd really go for.
