    [Tuesday] A 200g piece of camembert?

    Perfect late night snack ofc. And I got it at half price (it was an ~organic~ camembert of the usually noticeably more expensive variety) because I am pretty sure they fucked up the labeling in the customers' favour.

    So, let's talk about one of the many princes of Cheeseland. Who is, in your opinion, king in the delicious land of carefully ripened animal products? And: What exactly makes the difference between Brie and Camembert?

    really

    Of all cheeses. Haloumi. A concoction you have to burn to make it edible.

    REALLY

    Camembert is far more tangy than brie, it's a "richar" cheese all round.

    But then Cornish brie is generally more flavourful than Normandy camembert (to its detriment in my opinion)

    My favourite is Normandy brie, I find camemberts of most kinds especially Cornish to be too strong.

    Port Salut. There's a cheese for champions. I'm sure there's a huge variety of Entrammes cheeses but that's the only one I have access to. It's ace.


    Poland treats me like shit and I hate them as a result of it

    although in fairness i tend to cook with it and throw it away at the last minute, like any self respecting foodie

    leaves with a hint of cheese

    the really annoying thing about tuesday? i have to be up in about 4 hours for a 1 1/2 hr drive to work to prep for some focus groups i'm running in the late morning

    THE WORST THING

    it's a load of young mums, and half of them can't attend if they don't bring babies. so i'm going to have to be the young lovely idiot trying to manage a room of morons/macaroons cooing over small loud things while trying to get useful information out of them

    and it's tuesday, so i can't reasonably go to the pub afterwards.

    why is being a grown up so irritating?

    You can, however, perfectly well unreasonably go to the pub afterwards to reward yourself for having dealt with an assembly of babies and their moms. Which is p. reasonable.

    And it is specifically quite a bit more reasonable than suggesting Haloumi as the king of cheeses. ITS NOT EVEN RIPENED FFS.

    edit:

    unripened brined cheese [...]
    no acid or acid-producing bacterium is used in its preparation
    REEEEEEEEEEEE

    Halloumi is fine but it's not really a cheese is it? It's a squeaky morsel that you can't put on biscuits.

    Stick that shit on a cornish wafer and tell me you're having a nice time.

    Stilton is an absolute garbage (as is the rest of what English make insisting on calling it "cheese")

    The proper late night snack, with tea...



    As a regular snack, aged Beemster or Gruyère.

    Its not really for that though is it.. Its literally the one cheese you can heat to a bazillion degrees and it not turn in to a melty goo.. Sometimes you want that quality (but most of the time you dont)
