Nah, it works out well actually. Sure, sometimes we cook 2 seperate meals, (I'm a serious carnivore), but on the up-side, when I buy a packet of bacon for example, it's all for me. Very Happy

Fair enough, but how long before she'll kiss you afterwards?

There's a cheese called REYPENAER. It's quite expensive and looks nice, but if you ever see it in a shop and fancy some, don't bother, it's bland and boring, sort of like cheese flavoured paper. Sad

Barnstormer Extra Mature Cheddar however - is exactly that! Very Happy

How long is the aging process to be called extra mature? I love an extra sharp white cheddar...

It needs to have been laid down before 1600AD. OR it needs to have dealt well with a parental divorce within five years of being laid down.

Apparently.

Personally, I'll believe it's extra mature if it gives me an involuntary twitch in the right side of my face as I bite in....kind of like Wink but mirror image.

I love cheese, but I fear it does not love me back. My nurse friend believes I have mild allergic reactions when I eat most cheeses--especially those that are aged. At the first bite I flush across my cheeks, nose and forehead, and the stronger the cheese, the stronger the flush. Sometimes my cheeks tingle. Once my lips began to tingle, but I was eating a pasta dish at an unfamiliar restaurant, and could not decide what in particular caused that. *shrugs*

I've told my family that I'll continue eating cheese until it sends me into anaphylactic shock. . . Razz

Cider and cheese?

What an interesting combination, Stone!

Are there common varieties of cheeses usually served with cider? I've done wine and cheese.

I am assuming it is hard cider.
I still rarely see it here, and never in pubs or bars...

Remind me never to go to Florida!!!!

I think the idea is more to do with types of business rather than any particular taste combination. Lots of micro breweries are now doing their own ciders and perries, and lots of dairy farms making their own cheeses. So it's more about showcasing local produce I think. But, two of my favourite things, so I was very excited - except we had planned with a few friends to go at lunchtime, only to find out it doesn't start til 6pm. So plan's fallen through for today. But it's on tomorrow and Monday, which is a holiday, too, so I'm sure we'll get there at some stage.

For certain, Stone.

God bless Marks and Spencers!

They do a crackin 'classic cheese selection' for 5.99 which we decided to have for dinner tonight with crackers, a nice loaf of olive bread, mango chutney, and grapes (and of course some nice Savignon blanc). Brie, Cornish Cruncher Cheddar, St Paulin, a mature Stilton, and Wemsleydale &cranberry.

Enough left over for tomorrow too Big Grin

Wow, this thread has languished.

Anyway, I have discovered an amazing cheese which I must immediately (ok, several months later) recommend to any cheese lover.

Colliers Powerful Welsh Cheddar. This is probably the best cheddar I've ever had in my life.

If you like cheese, keep an eye out for it.

Have you had the Dubliner private reserve aged sharp cheddar? It's off the hook, it has crystals of cheese tang in it. On a nice multigrain seeded cracker it is so delicious I have to close my eyes and have a private moment with my taste buds before I can function again in human society. I'm also a huge fan of cambozola which is a camembert infused with gorgonzola mold. Warm, cold, baked, with grilled asparagus on bruschetta it's multiple taste bud orgasms to the max.
