That’s good to have that endorsement BM :D

KC2 - yes it was. It’s a great shop. A combined butcher, fishmonger and deli. Quite expensive but worth it for treat things.

It is praise indeed, though, because the (very) local cheeses made at Mrs Temple's Copys Green farm are particularly good. :D

Stoppit!!! We've just about finished our Christmas stock of local cheeses .... I'm having to put up with some (very good) Stilton and Lincolnshire Poacher :(

I'm sorry I have never tried minger but did have a small inward titter to myself over the name !!!!

Likewise there is a beer round these parts (Wiltshire, but can't find the exact name) and it's called Rucking something, and it always makes me smile.

Yesterday I bought some Munster slices (reduced) they melted very well in a toastie.

Going back to St Agur - after we discussed it, it was on offer so I got some

Not my absolute favourite blue cheese, though very acceptable, but I think it might be my favourite for cooking, I made a salad dressing and a pasta dish with it, it melts well, combines smoothly with everything else, and the flavour survives being heated

I found another lump of Montagnolo on the rtc counter of Tesco when I was last there - £2.15 down to £1.26 for the 160g portion ... I have to say it doesn't last long here as every time I open the fridge, I just scrape a lump onto a knife and it disappears in a blink of an eye :yum :yum :yum

We have a chunk of Cabrales that DS1 brought back with him from Spain.

It was vacuum packed but now we have opened it, it is strengthening by the hour!

We're about half way through it and it has almost got to the point that I can't eat it with crackers etc - what do you recommend would be a good way of using it?

There's about 150g left (it was a huge piece! DOP etc etc)

Thx!

ETA Reading up about it, looks like it's good with fruit jelly or honey, or with sweet wine or sherry. Figs are not in season any more but I guess I could probably get hold of some decent fig jam at the Turkish shop. Unfortunately I didn't make any quince preserve this year.

I think it's a blue cheese? Tame it with pasta & broccoli?

yes, it's very blue! Allegedly the strongest blue cheese in the world ...

Tracklements do a good fig relish KC2. I got a jar in the Neal’s Yard cheese box my cousins sent.

Here’s one for the cheesy foodies. Felicity has just tweeted: Is it possible to buy prescinsuea (the Liguarian fresh cheese) in London?

She thinks the spelling may be incorrect. Anyone heard of it? She’s had no replies so far.
