  1. I love this cheese. It’s rarely available but we always keep a lookout or it. We found some at the Cheeseboard in Berkeley yesterday. When we sampled it our response was: WOW! Good cheeses vary from batch to batch and this particular batch tastes spectacular. We bought a round which we will enjoy tonight.

    1. Thanks mrs bacon. First check at the Cheeseboard and it wasn't there yet, next morning at 10 grabbed the first round. The price is still $23.75 a pound, what I paid last year, or about $13 a round.

      1. They had several rounds at Haight Street Market yesterday also. I was tempted, but didn't get any.

        1. Rainbow has it too -- as of Tuesday midday. Wholes and halves. Not sure of the price...

            From what I understand, cheese will stop aging when cut, so make sure those halves are nice and ripe before buying.

          2. As of early afternoon today, only half rounds available at Cheeseboard.

            I'm still amazed by how good this cheese is each time I'm fortunate enough to come across it.
