Princess Fiona: a blue variety !

I have just read the website that you referred to ... interesting, cow variety, sort of a fusion of blues ... a sweet Gorgonzola ... Thanks.

I shall see if the Club Gourmet in El Corte Ingles Supermarket has this ... I like to play with cheeses on a dessert platter with fruit ...

What is the designation of origin, the animal, texture of the interior, the rind, aromas, colors ?

Have a nice Sunday.
It was created in the 1900's in Bavaria. It's cow's milk and cream with penicillin injection like is used for Gorgonzola. Kind of a Blue Brie, quite mild and slightly runny. The rind is very like Brie, off white and faintly smells of Bleu. Found it at the club store yesterday, $10 a pound. Tonight will be the first sampling of it warmed. The cold samples were exquisite.

Princess Fiona,

Thanks so much. I am going to check out. I love Brie, and I truly like Gorgonzola too. Bavarian blue, I have had here and it is lovely too --- I like a blue on an assorted cheese platter. Thanks so much.

Thanks for providing the post.

I am doing a homemade take on gyros. I seasoned ground turkey ( onion, garlic, parsely, lemon juice) and formed into patties and pan fried them. They go into pitas with tomato, cukes, red onion and homemade tzaziki sauce.

What's cooking at your place today?
Get well soon Zhizara.

I'll be making something with pork loin. Probably something with a Danish flair.

Corned beef, potatoes, cabbage, cabbage salad (raw shredded cabbage & grated carrot dressed with oil, vinegar and spices) and mustard (Trader Joe whole grain Dijon mustard, Tobasco Hot and Spicy mustard and Gulden’s spicy brown mustard)

No clue yet but everyone's dinners are making me hungry.
Just because something has a duck bill doesn't mean it's a platypus. It might just be a duck.

No, that wouldn't travel well at all.

Might I suggest pork chops stuffed with cornbread stuffing and cranberries.

Tonight I have thin-sliced roast beet and gravy on toasted Italian bread, then topped with mashed potatoes and more gravy, and a salad on the side.

Quoth the chicken, "Fry some more."
