    Your Fave and Worstest.... Cheeses!!!!

    In an effort to be a "human being" I took the ole lady out to din din at the C.I.A. one night. That's the "Culinary Institute of Amerca" for you conspiracy nuts put them Ludlum books down.

    Best Cheese:
    Between the main course and desert they came around with the "cheese cart". I had a French chesse called "Pierre Robert" that was simply the finest cheese I've ever et. Can't wait to score some more.

    Worst Cheese:
    "The Stinking Bishop" an English Cheese that was on the same cart. It IS the smelliest cheese I've EVER eaten. Smells and tastes like rancid gym socks or a hockey bag. It's so disgusting that the rancid filth liquifies at room temperature and "runs" across the plate. Good God words CAN'T describe it.

    I do like some fine cheese. The wife and I go through quite a bit.

    I like strong flavored cheese but when the cheese smells like sweaty-arse-crack, I have to draw the line. Stilton cheese comes to mind. Smells bad, taste even worse.

    I'll be the first to admit my palate's sophistication level for cheese would rival that of any 4 year old, but a few do stand out:
    Best) Gorwydd Caerphilly - this is a pleasant, delicious, creamy cheese. It doesn't dominate your taste buds and beat them into wretched submission, nor does it invite you to gorge it down like a bag of fresh, hot, buttery popcorn. To me this is a fine cheese that Popes and Presidents would eat with fancy crackers before a meal.

    Worst) While I too have had the loathsome "Stinking Bishop" - it was given to us at a fine dairy tour we did in the UK. Ol' stinky as I like to call it was served to give us an example of what a pungent, foul cheese should taste like so that we had a frame of reference when boldly proclaiming that "Ardrahan" is by far the most vile cheese ever had. It picks on the Stinking Bishop at recess and takes its lunch money.

    Upon first wiff, this vile curd will rank somewhere on your list of things to taste between an infant's peas-and-green-beans baby-food diarrhea and a freshly KY'ed cock.
    Think of the fattest, ugliest mistake you ever took home from the bar - that liquified funk she's secreting...is just one of the ingredients in Adrahan. I'm pretty sure Adrahan is Aramaic for Lucifer.
    Whoever makes this stuff is a strong example for the virtues of both capital punishment and abortion. the latter of which is more appetible...yuck.

    Well having been brought up in France, I figure I should contribute to this great thread. I'm a big fan of munster cheese (although it smells like heck, it really does), good goat's cheese & compté. These are part of my favourites although there are many others I like. Munster is local to the Alsace region in France which was at one point switching back and forth between German and French occupation.
    Compté is a 'hard' cheese which I guess would be vaguely similar to English cheddar.
    We have a local cheese shop or 'fromager' in French in our town so we get a pretty good selection of good cheeses.

    I am seriously humbled by the descriptive prowess of my erudute gastronomes!

    (Removes hat and bows head.)

    Ahem: I have never eaten a cheese I didn't like. Throw me a gorganzola, I'm fine; toss me a manchego, I'll say you're my best friend; hand me a bit of le morbier, shoot, I'll call you brother....

    You guys got me hungry, now! What goes with a good smegma-toejam pate?

    Best was taint cheese.
    Worst was a tie between tweena cheese and fomunda cheese.

    I don't know the names of the cheeses that I've had and loved. But the best cheese ever was on a huge cheese platter at a company Christmas party that I attended. It was at a fine restaurant downtown. It was a hard crumbly cheese with a red marble running through it and it was to die for! I stood next to the cheese plate with the cheese knife and stabbed the hand of anyone else who tried to take some (maybe that's why it was running with red ).

    I've never had a "worst" cheese.

    Every year Hubby and I treat ourselves to a nice nippy old cheddar...usually between 5 and 8 years...on Christmas morning. It's the only time that I'll spend $20 for a block of cheese. We'll nibble on it for the next few days and then wait, with great expections, for next Xmas when we can do it again.

    Didn't take overly long did it? For this thread to lurch past the gutter and head straight down the sewer. To prove I'm no pansy though I'll correct you the name is NOT Formunda but FROMUNDA Cheese. And it doesn't come fromunda there but fromunda (PM me if you're really curious) somewhere NORTH of there.

    I had some Jarlsberg last night along with a nice salad and what seems today to be too much wine. Sometimes a wedge of cheese, a nice salad makes for a nice simple dinner. Of late I find myself enjoying goat cheeses more and more.

    Hey JM! Long time no post. How have you been?

    I've been having trouble filling the humor quota around here without you.
