To say I love cheese is an understatement........there is nothing quite as satisfying as spending a couple of hours working your way through a cheese board, dotting between a bitterly ripe Camembert and an extravagantly creamy Burrata, a salty well aged Manchego and a lip-puckeringly strong Roquefort....and all the other Goat, Sheep and Cow creations in between.
If there was a choice between Chocolate and Cheese, the latter wins hands down, I could quite happily never eat a piece of chocolate again, but, a life without cheese? It just would not be worth living. It's definitely up there on my list for a "last supper", along with some good bread and wine, of course. I love the simplicity of cheese, how a meal, and indeed a whole evening, can be made out of it.
I keep reading how I should cut dairy out of my diet, that cheese is not good for you, blah, blah, blah....but, to be honest, I would rather not eat it for a week and then indulge in a good piece of Cheddar than eat any of those low fat, rennett free (basically taste free) concoctions. I thank the lord that I don't have any allergies or dairy intolerance because my life would be very, very boring without Cheese.
I'm blessed to have this shop round the corner from my office, every time I walk by I stand and gaze at their offerings, trying to think of a reason not to go in....of course I never can
I could literally lay across this lot...
No, it's not an old piece of wood
The famous French Goat's cheese pyramids....without a top, thanks to Napoleon, allegedly
Who says Cheese isn't beautiful?
I thee covet
This was everything I hoped it would be: crumbly, firm, tangy and strong, the perfect ending to a delicious supper
