I think that we may have overdone the cheese board again:

  • Fowlers Sage Derby
  • Colston Bassett Stilton
  • Pendle Forest Smoked Lancashire
  • Lincolnshire Poacher
  • Sparkenhoe Red Leicester
  • Ilha Graciosa
  • Pant-Ysgawn soft goats cheese
  • A soft goats cheese with red peppercorns
  • Smoked Pecorino
  • Port Salut
  • La Granja Manchego
  • Emmental
  • Davidstow Cheddar
  • Hawes Kit Calvert Wensleydale
  • A wedge of ripe brie
  • Another Wensleydale (bog standard)
  • Another Red Leicester (bog standard)
  • Saint Agur
  • Ilchester Mexicana

Also, membrillo and fig cheese from the Fine Cheese Co., oatcakes (smoked, peppered, and plain), four types of biscuit from the Fine Cheese Co. (chilli, rosemary, walnut, and mustard and black pepper), Bath Olivers, and a selection of lesser biscuits.

*whimper*

Apparently one can now get smoked Lincolnshire Poacher. Oh, baby.

I haz some. On the coffee table right next to me, with a large bunch of grapes.

I suspect that if you two had a choice, you would just have cheese for Christmas dinner.

No no no! You have cheese mid-morning and mid-afternoon to give you an excuse to drink fortified wines between meals!

(not that we've managed much of that this year)

oh god. I want to be where you are.:)

Well, you made the choice to leave Southampton... ;)

Yum. I always think of you two and your wonderful wedding day whenever I purchase Montgomeryshire(?) Cheddar:-)

Reminds me of our first cheese and wine party, back in 1999. We bought ludicrous amounts of cheese and then most of the guests brought between 1 and 3 cheeses each. We were eating cheese for the next fortnight and even then we didn't get through it all.

*grins*

We must recount the story of the Wedding Cheese at some point...

Any decent cheese in your part of the world, or should we start arranging food parcels?

Come to our Open House, and you can help us eat it.

I'll rephrase that.

Please come to our Open House - we need help eating it!

We're lucky to get Kerrygold Cheddar

Actually, Whole Foods down in Indianapolis has a darn fine selection of cheeses, including that green French one that they make out of sheep's milk in caves, and the nasty brown one from Norway. That said, we're usually just happy to get hold of some Dorset or Wiltshire cheddar, which for some reason is stocked by one of our local supermarkets at hugely inflated prices.

And anyway, you shouldn't mention 'Lincolnshire Poacher' too loudly, or Hugh's buddies in MI6 will be on to you. Spooky.

Roquefort - lovely stuff.

the nasty brown one from Norway

Gjetost - the only cheese I dislike.

Indeed. There are widespread reports that it stopped transmitting last summer, so they probably won't be *too* upset.
