Old Cheese Lovers

If you are an old and stinky cheese fan like myself , here is something maybe you haven't considered.
When shopping for cheese, especially in the larger supermarkets, check the expiry dates on the Artizan cheeses such as Cambozola, French farmers etc. They actually are better long after the imposed best before date. If I find recently expired stuff, I get them to sell it to me at a reduced price. They are going to throw it out, anyway. Maybe you can convince them to just give it to you. Here in Canada, you can pay anywhere from 5 ot 10 bucks for a small round. Sometimes, depending on the cheese, I bring it home and leave it in the fridge for another two weeks....

Cool, Most times things are gone by the time they expire around here. Especially dairy.

Personally mate I think I have reached the cusp. I started life wearing diapers and I feel I am on the slippery slope..............

I was going to put an old and stinky joke in there, but I figured somebody would come along and do it for me soon enough. Yes Bolais, we have Brie de Meaux. One of my faves. Another one is Rouy. A small orange rind which comes in its own box. I like to leave it in the fridge for a few weeks after I bring it home. Then, out on the counter all day(covered of course) to soften up before eating it....
