Cheese

OK Utter nonsense, but If you were cheese what cheese would you be?

I would be something earthy, and a bit stinky.

Awesome question. Perhaps emmenthal. A little nutty with a tough rind. Well, that's what Buck would say!!

Really, though, I do love emmenthal. But I couldn't choose a cheese because there are so many I like.

I would be cream cheese. At first glance, boring and bland, but in reality a vital addition to many dishes, both savory and sweet, adding that special zing that only cream cheese can do!

I would be a delightful chevre I ate mear Mont St Michel two years ago, but annoyingly can't remember what it was called....not too firm, not too soft, pure and creamy, but with a tang, and although the outside was rolled in carcoal and obviously had seen some darkness, inside it was still a clean, snowy cheese!

Could it have been this?:

Humboldt Fog

Our signature offering, Humboldt Fog is an elegant, soft, surface ripened cheese. The texture is creamy and luscious with a subtle tangy flavor. Each handcrafted wheel features a ribbon of edible vegetable ash along its center and a coating of ash under its exterior to give it a distinctive, cake-like appearance. An American Original!

There are too many to chose from for me to choose a favorite, but probably a blue cheese. For some reason I'm really on a blue cheese streak. Definitely not Limburger or Schmier. I'm a tolerant eater, but whooooeee.

I'd be brie because I like it and I think it goes good with a glass of wine and some crusty bread, like me.
