Beaufort, France
Lincolnshire Poacher, Lincolnshire, England
Berkswell, Warwickshire, England
Le Chevre Noir, Quebec

Camembert, Normandy, France
Lancanshire, England
Single Gloucester, England
Taleggio, Italy
Cantal, Auvergne, France
Cheddar, England
Parmigiano-Reggiano, Parma, Italy
Shropshire Blue, England
Buratta, Italy

Some I would like to travel to (for) and dream of:

Le Moulis, France

Perail, France
Manchego, Spain
Reblochon, France
Jersey Blue, Vermont
Munster, Alsace, France
Rogue River Blue, Oregon

    I once flew to Topeka for a rare Velveeta.

      Edam and Gouda.

      Honestly, I didn't go there just because of the cheese, but I wasn't about to pass up the oppportunity once I was in the vicinity...

            Great list and you've mentioned one of my favourite cheeses Lincolnshire Poacher.
            Just in case you do set off to Stilton.
            This is the village in Cambridgeshire where it was first sold, It originated in Melton Mowbray Leicestishire. Any "Stilton" made in Stilton can't be called Stilton because of it's PDO status.Confusing I know.

              We "discovered" epoisses a couple of years ago. Last year my husband said, he'd really like to go to the place where it is produced. So, we're going to Burgundy for the first time and to the epoisses factory near Dijon. We plan to eat it every day.
