    Very cool. I'm gonna have to see if I can order some of those online. Whenever I order cheese online, it reallly freaks out the delivery guys here in Hawaii...they keep threatening to throw the package away because it smells so "interesting."

    Jon's a character. He's a programmer, but that's the least of his identifiers.

    I tend to stick away from cheese, I think I ate to much of it when I was a kid... when I do it cheese on rare occassions it's swiss w/my pastrami or american cheddar slices w/soda crackers!

    I'll eat the stuff, but how does anyone know when cheese is ~done~? ooooOOoOO, lets curdle up some milk, leave it in the cupboard for several months, and under all that funky mold, let's cut out the heart of it and eat that.

    And there is a whole industry based on it.

    1. I'm Italian, so you're going to need to add "pasta" as another choice. I suppose, though, that pasta could be a "vegetable" (not vegtable).

    2. Blueyecicle, I agree with your needing "all of the above."

    Bottom line: after "pasta" & "all of the above" are added to the choices, I will check "all of the above."

    Re: Cheese

    I am a big fan of cheese, and have tried hundreds of varieties. If I had the wherewithal, I would quit my job, move to the Skagit Valley (easy access to many dairy farms), and learn how to make small quantities of several varieties.

    Cheddar...feta...edam...gouda...wensleydale...gorg onzola...double gloucester...havarti...I could go on forever, but my co-workers would wonder about the expression on my face.

    (Unfortunately, I won't touch brie or others of that ilk, as I became very ill on some bad brie decades ago.) Find yourself a store that carries a wide variety of fromage, and ask to sample some. Tell them what kinds of things you like at present (even if it's only Kraft American singles, which I still like, too!); let them lead your tongue to try new tastes. Go from mild to sharp to stinky - it's sorta like learning about wine.

    I love cheese, but as I get older I find that cheese doesn't love me.

    Damn lactose.

    Re: Cheese

    I love cheese, but don't know enough (or make enough!) to appreciate the fancy-shmancy stuff. Heck, I even like the stuff that cheese snobs say is a crime to call cheese -- the unnaturally neon orange stuff that is American cheese! Among the simplest snacks I enjoy is Diamond soda crackers and Kraft American singles.

    This I apologize for since when I do cook it's usually macaroni and cheese. *sigh*

    That's what I was gonna ask too!

    Cheese is my fave food of all time.

    A really good one that I always recommend to others is Explorateur:
    http://www.cheese.com/Description.asp?Name=Explorateur

    I see it at R Fields. Not sure what other places carry it. It's absolutely wonderful once it sits out and starts to really soften. Yum!!!
