Cheese for Me!
I'm rather fond of cheese. I mean, I did write a poem about cheese, didn't I? ;-) So, for my birthday, Amy & Rachel decided to get me a gift certificate to igourmet.com. When Amy was telling me this on my birthday, I pictured "IgorMay.com" That's Igor as pronounced in Young Frankenstein. So Igor may, but Igor may not...

Anyhoo, the gift certificate arrived today. I've been perusing the website for awhile and there's a LOT of good things on the site. But I decided to stick with English cheeses, this time. Here is what I chose:

  • The Dorset Drum English Farmhouse Cheddar (the best cheddar, according to the website)

  • The English Cheese Assortment (contains Coombe Farm Cheddar, Royal Blue Stilton, and Sage Derby)

  • The Saxonshires (a five layered cheese containing Double Gloucester, Caerphilly, Cheshire, Liecester, and Cheddar)

I figured this would give me a nice assortment to sample. My next task, when I'm out at Walmart or Meijer or something, is to get a decent cheese knife. I've got nice cutting boards which are great for showing off a nice sample of cheeses. (And you know, when talking about all the cool Christmas presents, I forgot to mention the cheeses that elsaf's brother's GF sent along to judiang & me. Very tasty cheeses, though the cheddar was the most popular with my family & friends. Elsa also gave us some of the chocolates that they made during their Chocolate Party.)

So, let's hear it for cheese! :-)

Current Mood: enthralled cheesy

I wish you were here! My sister is having a big party at her house tonight for her birthday, and she just got done reading me the list of marvelous cheese she bought to share! So it has been a cheesy day for me already...

Enjoy!

Oooh! Sounds good to me! Let me know if you discover any previously unknown delights. :-)

*drools* I LOVE cheese. Double Gloucester is wonderful on crackers. :)

I think I've tried double Gloucester before, but I don't remember the taste. I shall do a thorough cheese review once I've got my new cheeses, however! :-)

So, what's your preference with crackers? You prefer bland so that the cheese flavor takes precedence, or do you like a flavorful cracker to enhance/complement the flavor of the cheese? (I think I like flavored crackers, like wheat or sesame - will experiment more later.)

Depends on the cheese, I think :)
