Whiney Cheesy Cow

I'm contemplating attending Frangipani's cheese & wine evening. Their cheese are always so fab! The only way I would be able to truly enjoy this is if I go to the gym today. Think I need to burn 1000 calories to justify one night of cheese bliss. Oh sod it, who wants to go eat cheese with me?! Yaaaaay.....


Cont: So I did end up feasting on a smorgasbord of hard, creamy, crumbly and pongy cheese! The cheese were brought back from France on their trip recently. I was told that they are all unpasteurised and supposedly tastes completely different and superior to the pasteurised varieties that we get here. I think the French pride themselves on unpasteurised cheese where else the argument goes that its the technique and good quality milk that produces a fantastic cheese. I don't eat enough cheese to taste the difference, I just thought they tasted bloody excellent!

There were 6 boards laid out on the bar in their own groups. I started with the mild soft cheeses and worked my way towards the blue varieties. It took all my discipline to not go straight to the blue. Their knobbly, deformed blue-veined bodies were calling out for me everytime I walked past. I'm glad I refrained because by the time I hit the hard cheeses, I could no longer taste the mild soft ones. I made the mistake of picking up the goats cheese. Phwoarh!! Gag! The taste is rancid! I can't even begin to describe how vile it was. I guess it would be a cross between my nephew's regurgitated milk and licking a goat's ass. Blechhh. Never again!

There was beautiful blue-veined creature that I fell in love with. It was delicately sweet upon the first bite but it slowly unveiled a salty, almost spicy bite as it crumbled away in my mouth. I could've eaten the whole block of it. I was so upset when I returned for a second helping to discover that someone had eaten it all! I was bitching to Hunky about it, then he points to his plate and there it was! Clever Hunky!! I want to say that I am off cheese after that very heavy but utterly pleasurable evening. Alas, I am craving it even more!
