Has anyone else in this august group of food lovers tried Balderson, Heritage Cheddars? They have one many awards, both in Canada and internationally for this line of cheeses. And no, I don't work for them. I just am a big fan. I've purchased and eaten the 2 year, 3 year, and 5 year aged varieties and fell in love. There is a guy in Wisconsin that makes cheese as good, but I don't know the company. I received some from a freind who, like me works in the telecom industry, out of Marquette, Michigan. His brother makes the cheese.
My only problem with both of these cheeses is availability of the product. I have to go to Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario for the Balderson, and have little to no access for the Wisconsin cheese. Nothing available, including Tillamook, even comes close.
It's a sad thing when you've tasted the perfect cheddar, and have none available
. But for any of you who can get it, well, that's a good thing indeed.
I can get a 5-year aged cheddar in my town, but it has a bitter finish. My eldest daughter loves it. She's a lucky girl. She can get what she loves locally.
If cheddar isn't your thing, who else has tasted something grand that just isn't available to them due to location, and what was that something?
