I've got the Scottish oatcakes, wine and Gorgonzola on the go. Are there any interesting cheeses that you'd recommend?

There is one cheese I absolutely cannot stand - parmasane :puke:

Nice strong Mature English Cheedar I tend to like - the type which is a little bit crumbly

Her indoors loves Stilton with Apricots.

Personally I've never been a fan of the trend of adding fruit to cheeses, or fruit in meat recipes for that matter.

I like most strongly flavoured cheeses, especially a traditional Stilton or Danish Blue, and I also like a nice bit of Feta in a salad.

On a cheese board I'd tend to put a Stilton or Danish, a really good mature Cheddar, a Brie or Camembert, and either a crumbly Lancashire or a Wensleydale.

Raclette's nice too if you've got friends round and just want to do something snack-like.

Hoovie,

I love fresh parmesan, so much nicer and slightly salty, totally different to the powdered sick that they have in Pizza Hut! :lol:

I think you are right, REAL Parmesan is probbaly a whole different kettle of fish (board of cheese? :lol: )

I could never eat the blue cheeses until fairly recently - the idea of eating mold put me off (it still does a little :help: )
a nice ripe Brie is very tasty as well :thumbright:

Stilton.

But you can get mediocre stiltons.

The best stilton is a Colston Bassett, which I've never seen in a supermarket, so it means going to a specilist cheese shop in town.

Or by mail order although it is well worth a visit and sample -

Unusually I agree wit Stods it is an excellent Stilton - the best cheese in the world by far provided it is served at the right temperature.

Is the cheese shop still in Wells? The hotel I used to work at got the cheese from there and we kept it in the cellar. Cornish Yarg with nettles on the outside is another good one.

I love brie, but my favorite "new" cheese is Havarti, because I honestly don't think I had tried it until a couple weeks ago. I like it because it's soft and different and not too strong a taste.

Some of the dutch cheeses (like Leredammer) are nice and creamy. Danish Blue is my favourite though. Serving cheese at room temperature is essential to get the best flavour from it.
