Title: Cheese
Post by: Luci on Tuesday, August 16, 2011, 11:15:52
Do we have a sticky thread anywhere to record all the people who have confirmed their favourite cheese?

As this is a bit of a favourite question, I think we need a 'cheese' board  :D

(I also just found out that Tony Cottee's favourite cheese is Dutch Edam courtesy of the Moose)  ;D

Can't beat a good strong cheddar that takes the roof of your mouth off. I was very surprised a little while ago to have 2 year old aged gouda that did the same. Stilton is also good.
A good gorgonzola also hits the spot.

gouda is normally crap but the one I had was as strong as any cheddar. I got it in a cheese shop in Lincolnshire. i asked the owner what the strongest cheese she had and laughed when she told me gouda. It was truly excellent with a truly excellent price tag to match but it was quality.

Will have to have a look around for an aged gouda then, I have an open mind but the normal stuff and the smoked gouda I have tried was a bit meh.

Age makes all cheese better....except cottage cheese, feta and mozarella mostly!

Some pro-British cheese tips:

Substitute Cheddar for Parmesan in your risotto

Use Farmhouse Cheddar, Red Leicester or Double Gloucester in kebabs

Yorkshire Blue can be used in place of Gorgonzola

Bake Tunworth Cheese instead of Camembert

Use Berkswell instead of Manchego and Pecorino

Post by: Bideford_Robin on Saturday, September 24, 2011, 21:43:30
IMHO the best tasting blue veined cheese is Dorset Blue Vinny and the beauty of it is that it is only produced in a very small area. Great for eating on its own with crusty cob bread and rich salted butter (I also love a gooseberry coarse made jam with it, but walnuts go well) or for salads.

Lived in Paris for a while several years ago, it's true - very heavy on the national cheeses (although the French do seem to transfer this "protective nationalism" to all areas - the music played by radio stations, their language, everything).
Don't know whether it was because I was in such a large city but the foreign cheeses that were very easy to get hold of  were Gouda and Edam.

In addition to the aforesaid outlets, you can also buy the Black Bomber Snowdon Cheese from Cardiff Market (a proper market, not the sort that peddles Chinese made tat, or garments dripping with the blood of Bengali childrens' ardour)  in the City Centre. On the basis of the glowing reccomendations on this thread, I purchased one of these wax clad beauties and will be partaking of said product during the Wolves' game. Let it breathe at room temperature for a few hours and foist liberally on a Jacobs cream cracker selection, but dispense with the odious digestive biscuit type offering.

It better meet with delight.

   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casu_marzu

Quote
Derived from Pecorino, casu marzu goes beyond typical fermentation to a stage most would consider decomposition, brought about by the digestive action of the larvae of the cheese fly Piophila casei. These larvae are deliberately introduced to the cheese, promoting an advanced level of fermentation and breaking down of the cheese's fats. The texture of the cheese becomes very soft, with some liquid (called lagrima, from Sardinian language for "tear") seeping out. The larvae themselves appear as translucent white worms, about 8 millimetres (0.3 in) long. When disturbed, the larvae can launch themselves for distances up to 15 centimetres (6 in). Some people clear the larvae from the cheese before consuming while others do not. The cheese, along with one of its Sardinian makers, Giovanni Gabbas, received attention on Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern. Zimmern described the taste of the cheese as "so ammoniated" that "...it scorches your tongue a bit." The cheese is known to leave an aftertaste for a duration of up to several hours.

WTF?!?!? "The larvae can launch themselves up to six inches?" Fuck me, being attacked by your cheese must rank alongside eating dog vomit or admiring boy bands.

It's difficult to have one favourite cheese, I love so many and for different reasons.

Cheddar. A strong, mature cheddar is a staple in my fridge.
Brie. Decadent, can only be eaten at room temperature, don't have it often enough.
Parmesan. Great in homemade Italian dishes.
Stilton. Love a strong, blue, tasty cheese, but more of a winter cheese.
Tomme de Chevre. A lovely goats cheese, perfect just with some fresh, crusty bread.

I just can't choose my favourite, it would probably change each time someone asked me.

Extra mature cheddar is the nuts. The only reason I'd have shit cheese in my house is for topping burgers with. For some reason that plastic stuff is just right for them.

Do you melt the cheese before application though? I do. I tried chucking it on straight away and it's just not right.

Perfect Cheese on Toast the Honkytonk way is: lightly toasted bread, carefully apply your layer of sliced extra mature cheddar, melt under grill until slightly bubbling, then whisk out and apply worcestershire sauce quickly, then place back under grill until the cheese is slightly golden brown. Or the toast starts burning. Either or.

Then devour like it's your last meal on planet earth.

It's weird, plastic cheese is the best cheese for burgers and hot dogs, they're not suitable for any other use, but they're better than top of the range cheeses for these purposes.

I always have plastic cheese in my fridge for burger/hot dog emergencies.

Oh, and squirty American style mustard, amazing with said foods, but probably nothing else.

Apparently one of the reasons why Felix Magath fell out with players at Fulham, was because he was a bit Paolo....

when Hangeland was injured he told the physio, that what was needed was a block of cheese....dispatched the kit man to Tesco, then got Hangeland to lie down for a goodly time with the block of cheese on him.

 Clearly there must be method in Magath's madness as he's won the Bundesliga with Bayern and Wolfsburg.

Just been nibbling on the latest batch, bought in Haarlem (a fine city btw) and they're superb, almost like Parmisan in taste and feel. One of them is Ouda Gouda. Don't know where you get this stuff in the UK, mores the pity.

Ok heres a question.

When having cheese and crackers do you have it with or without butter? I think butter is a must when eating cheese and crackers. Obviously this is with hard cheeses such as cheddar. Soft cheese such as brie are exempt from this rule but several of my work colleagues believe that butter has no place on crackers whatever the type of cheese.

No,  I won't.  I just won't be blind to the fact  that a nice light, crumbly cheese is improved by the addition of sweetness and a slight fruity flavour. I also really like the German smoked cheese you get in little sausage -shaped rolls. But I don't think that's really quite the same.

I like the seriously strong stuff. I mean, given you're expecting a cheese spread. On a cracker with some chutney etc it's fine, certainly better than primula or whatever.

You should, I love a strong mature cheddar and usually they crumble to bits which is fine but this one has a mature flavour but its texture is almost buttery.

Dear Diary

Had a cheese impulse tonight. Fridge bereft of said foodstuff. Apart from a wedge of Parmesan. Well actually it was Parmigiano Reggiano that I used to cook in a trout dish the other day. It had to be done. Man, it smells and tastes like a night on the IPA vomit but wow. What a texture. Like three year plus old extra mature cheddar. With granularity and crystalline texture. I'm hooked.

Forgive me please Diary.

Tesco's grated Italian Hard Cheese probably originates from the foreskin of some crusty old Sicilian and hence why I made the distinction x

The wife came back with an odd one yesterday.

She meant to pick up your box standard cheddar and came back instead with 'Valla cheddar'. Never heard of it, neither has google. It could be spelled wrong though; there is a Vella cheese company.

It looks like a cheddar and has the texture of a cheddar, but it smells and tastes like more of a Brie or a mild blue. It's fucking good whatever it is.

The larger supermarkets, yeah. Smaller ones tend to have just cheddar or processed stuff, if anything. There's some supermarkets out here that specialise in imported goodies for westerners, they can be pricey though. Nearly a tenner for a small jat of Bovril, for example.

Isn't global capitalism marvellous, you can get a jar of Bovril in Bangkok.

It would make very good business sense for the club to brew it's own beer.

They would make all the profit instead of some of it, and it would fall into the lower microbrewery duty rate.

By tour, I stood at a table for 2 hours drinking different beers from different taps in a converted large garage building.  All brewed onsite, lovely stuff and a great two hours, but in facilities worse than you could shoe horn into the available space in the DR stand.  I say a Cheese Tasting and Micro Brewery should be easy to achieve, someone needs to make that happen.

We also bought some stuff online from an Italian deli recently and got ourselves 2 amazing cheeses.

A spicy Caciotta, which was fucking ace. And an amazing "spicy" (it wasn't) mature provolone.

On a side note, if you like 'Nduja, they sell it in "orba", so it's full flavoured and amazing. Trouble is, it's as moreish as crack, which isn't good for my weight.
