It is so hard to pick just some, or a few cheeses when we go to this shop, I am sure it is because they give us tastes and that teases us… it is an evil plan *nods lots*
We managed though, and had lots of tastes while we were doing it. That is the best part, the tastes and the looks exchanged to see if we both like it, and the grins that follow. One of our favorites looks like this, but don’t ask me the names, we seldom remember them. Usually it is the orange one, or the green one, when we try to remember.
When I found this picture I also found this: five counties cheese because of the different cheeses that make up its five layers. These cheeses are: Double Gloucester, Caerphilly, Cheshire, Leicester, and Cheddar… woo hoo, now I don’t have to remember. lol. It is really good. we love it.
We also bought a big wedge of Parmesan, because I am going to make a noodles Alfredo this weekend. And it is great with crackers and wine too.
We have had this one before too, it is very nice, called Wensleydale, it has cranberries in it. There is one like it with apricot too. We had it at Christmas, it is very nice with a Pinot Grigio or Pinot Gris (as they are the same thing), but then most things are nice with Pinot Grigio.
And an apple wood smoked cheddar, it is really yummy with Shiraz. We bought Havarti with dill too. The dill flavour is very pronounced, not like the ones in the supermarkets that are just sort of green specks, this one is very creamy with a great dill flavour. Think I am getting hungry again.
We picked up a green cheese that has sage in it, that is what made it green, a brie that has peppercorns, it is really good on crackers, I hope it lasts to the weekend.
We picked up three or four other ones too, some soft some smoked.. They are all great. Aimee keeps testing them, her excuse is that she wants to match them up with wine… don’t think she is fooling anyone though, but it was a good try.
