Time to start a cheese thread, although, I suspect that I may be one of the main contributors:

Today, I paid a flying visit to the city, and - among other things - thought to visit the cheesemonger's.

My purchases included: Roquefort, Bleu d'Auvergne, mature Gruyère, aged, mature Comte, Torta del Casar, Delice de Bourgogne, St. Nectaire, and Camembert Rustique.

I thought there was a cheese thread or am I going crazy? I eat mroe cheese then most people as it is my main source of fat and calories but anymore its just another food I have to eat and has lost some of its thrill. when you eat almost 1/2 pound a day.I have to be careful too strong and it hurts my esophagus. I eat a lot of different ones but I don't get really excited about it anymore.

There is a cheese thread on MR.

There are food threads here, (on which I have posted detailed descriptions of cheese purchases), but I thought that we might care to indulge ourselves with a thread dedicated to, - or devoted to - a discussion of everything to do with cheese.

ya I was like Huh? ok time for some blasphemy I use this to make my wife some quick cheezy veggies it adds a lot of flavor but you don't need as much cheese as you would normally. I like to jsut eat some with a spoon as with me I need a lot of flavor as my diet is pretty bland. but it hurts my esophagus so I cant eat it often. https://www.amazon.com/Anthonys-Pre...pd_rd_i=B076TPLFFD&psc=1&ref_=pd_bap_d_rp_1_i

What cheese do you use?

Ah, okay.

Personally, for such a dish, I'd think to use some grated (grated by myself) Parmesan (Parmigiano Reggiano), or grated Gruyère, or something of the sort.

my wife has issues with two much fat so enough cheese to flavor veggies can be too fatty. Plus you have the issues of melting. this works well logs of flavor not as much fat because you don't need a lot. I eat most of my cheese at work we dont eat a lot at home so I dont have too much on hand. with how I have to eat my cooking has become super simple and basic. Plus my wife never tells me what she wants to eat so her food has become simple too.

Fair enough.

In the days (pre-Covid) when I often worked abroad for months on end - in countries or continents (Africa, central Asia) that lacked a dairy industry - I used to crave cheese; first stop, when I was en route home on leave, even before I ever arrived home, was the cheesemonger's - a taxi waiting outside, metre running, suitcases in boot (trunk?), - while I stocked up....

ya If I did not have to eat more to stay alive it would be better. food as lost its luster. I crave flavor but thats the thing that can really hurt my esophagus. I have been eating meat and cheese for lunches for 25 years it has taken its tole.

The other day picked up some of the wonderful Cypress Grove Truffle Tremor. Last couple of times I'd been in that particular store they were out of it so was happy to be able to find it again! Alas, they didn't have my other favorite from Cypress Grove, Humboldt Fog, but it's pretty popular so I'm sure they'll have some in stock again soon.

That reminds me we didn't order Stilton this year. We always ordered it when the whole family is here for Christmas but forgot this year. :(

Stilton and Christmas are just one of those perfect pairings; "it just works", to cite a slogan about Something Else Entirely.

Likewise, Vacherin Mont d'Or is also a seasonal cheese, which reaches a peak of perfection as the solstice approaches.

Your lucky I’m in quarantine, I might have looted your haul!

A flying visit to the farmers' market last Saturday also took in the French bakery, and the cheesemonger's: Cheese purchases included Abondance cheese, (a rare enough find, and one which I love), Roquefort, Bleu des Causses, Munster au cumin, (Munster with caraway seeds), and seductively oozing Camembert Rustique.
