Re: Cheese

Blue cheeses are ace, Danish, Roquefort, Gorgonzola, but the daddy is the Blue Stilton. Not as salty as Danish, not as obvious as Roquefort not as strong as Gorgonzola. It's strong, delicate, assertive yet not as obvious as its continental cousins. perfect with a plain wafer, jacobs cracker or indeed equally at home on a salt and vinegar crisp/stilton sandwich (butter not marg)

American cheese is utter SHIT.

Re: Cheese

Yeah, it's not a cheap vice over here, not if you want the good stuff. Jad some ace stuff up in Quebec, straight off the farm. That said, there's a lad on Union Square at the Farmer's Market who makes some good stuff Upstate.

It's always butter (Kerry Gold), that other stuff is poison.

Blue stilton melted onto a rare T bone steak.

Ha ha, alas I meant moules.    I've had snails in France and Belgium, in Belgium they have then neat i.e. boiled and no garlic butter, rank they are.  They should stick to chocolate and beer.

Re: Cheese

It always put me off snails when I watched one of those trendy cook blokes who would gather snails from his garden and put them in a box with a load of lettuce leaves for a week so as to flush out any impurities such as dog shit that the snail may have snacked on.

Re: Cheese

They are truly disgusting, and that one is an extremely disgusting version of the form. Tried them once. Left it. Snails. Once. Tasted like hot raw sewage or rather how I'd imagine hot raw sewage would taste.

Snails don't really taste of anything, more a textured protein.  It's why the French are smart and lather them in garlic butter and the Belgians are shit twats and boil them into school erasers.

Re: Cheese

This may be a British thing, but when I choose cheese i try to steer clear of the cheeses I can hear humming and the ones I can see moving.
