Cheese - the best cheese experience you ever had

Roqfort, soft and squishy, pungently fabulous on crisp lavosh with a Temprinillo to divert the taste buds momentarily before returning to another heady mouthful.

How about you?

  1. Mounds of Bulgarian feta on a shopska salad - sitting in a little cafe near the Black Sea coast in Bulgaria!, downing shots of rakiya and chasing it with the salad.

    1. Homemade - Mom's mac n cheese. Nothing fancy. Just a great combination of macaroni, butter, milk, cheese and a sprinkling of different seasonings. My aunt and I still fight over the leftovers.

      Restaurant - Melted oozing gouda smothering a 1/3 lb burger in a small joint called Genki Burger just up the street from Waseda U in Tokyo.

      And just for the memories...taking bites out of a block of sharp cheddar with my college buddies on our first trip to Vegas as 21 year olds. Accompanied by wheat thins, great funk and hip hop and a little herbal enjoyment.

      1. I am still in love with Humboldt Fog. It's been a few months now!

            "...eating about a quarter pound of that would be one of my fonder memories."

            You have just ONE memory of that?

        2. Walking into a little cheese shop on the Boulevard St. Germain a block or two east of the Sorbonne and seeing over three hundred varieties of goat, sheep, and cow's milk cheeses, covered in all manner of mold, leaves, ash. I fell to the floor weeping with joy.

            Do you remember the name of the cheese shop? There was one I frequented when I lived near the Sorbonne called the Cremerie Des Carmes? Does that ring a bell?
            It was right next to the flower market.

          2. A round of Brillat Savarin (triple creme), drowned in cognac soaked golden raisins, served with crusty french bread.

              That sounds amazing. Do you soak the raisins yourself? If so, for how long?
