Well, I have to say we are starting to reach some of the less-enjoyable cheeses now, it would seem -
Westcombe Farmhouse Cheddar - Borough Market - a drier cheddar, but not particularly flavorful or interesting.
Berliner - The best of this bunch, but still a mild cheese. Hard cheese.
Brillat Savarin Delin - a soft cheese, similar to Brie and St. Angel but not as flavorful/salty and the rind has that typical fungal "Brie" characteristic. All this one did was make me miss St. Angel.
P'tit Basque - similar to Manchego but seems a little drier, a little less fat, a little less salt, a lot more rind, so it's harder to get a good bite of it. Overall, not better than Manchego.
Mountain Gorgonzola - blue cheese, medium-soft - you can spread it if you try hard, the blue is not overpowering. I think it has a good place in combination with crackers or bread, but Kit disagrees and thinks it is just not that flavorful, at least not for a blue.
So does this mean we are at the end of our cheese tasting saga? I would disagree on that - but we are going to revisit some of our favorites. On that note, I stopped at Safeway for some lettuce for salads and thought I'd check their cheese section. As luck would have it, they have some of our favorites, so I got a few of them:
Aged Irish Cheddar
Cave Aged Grueyere
Goat Cheese Brie (I generally like Brie and they didn't have St. Angel so I got this to see how it compares)
Since we don't particularly like the cheeses we recently got, I thought we should have a few of the ones we do like to mix in on the cheese plates. We also recently stocked huge amounts on our wine list!
