Friends in Cheeses

As I said earlier, I took a little hiatus from the blog and cheese for a few weeks. To welcome me back, my American friend, Alicia, hosted an American Cheese Tasting afternoon.

alicia, it must be said, is a Cheese Heroine. She brought back more than 5kg of the stuff on her recent visit home. That’s 5kg of artisan cheese in her luggage. Thank god Qatar Airways has generous limits.

The result of that haul is displayed below. It must be said we were joined by friends Jamie, Rachel B and Raven for this cheese hoedown, and of course me, the ring in.

In the back there is the Chocolate Lab also from Looking Glass. This was my favorite on the day - a lovely cow milk washed rind cheese. Loveable like a chocolate Lab!

Barely Buzzed, Chocolate and Lavender Rubbed Made from the milk of Jersey cows; this is a full-bodied cheese with a smooth, creamy texture. And it;s from...Utah!
