Cheese In The News – Vol. 6

THINGS ARE VERY WRONG IN THE WORLD OF CHEESE

Hmm…what does one do with all that extra milk Mommy pumped? New York chef, Daniel Angerer, actually made cheese out his wife’s breast milk.  If that isn’t f*cked up enough, he’s serving it with figs and Hungarian pepper at his restaurant, Klee Brasserie.  I reread the article several times and kept having this one reccuring thought: what kind of wine does one serve with …Boobrie?…Mammabrie?  Ideas, anyone?

When good cheese goes bad!  Speaking of Camembert (ok, so I wasn’t, big deal), the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control has issued a warning regarding Moonstruck Organic Camembert cheese.  There’s been a province wide recall after one wheel was found to contain the listeria monocytogenes bacteria (Say that 5 times fast, I dare ya!).  So far nobody’s gotten sick.  Well, nobody’s filed a law suit, in any case.

When good cheese goes bad…the sequel.  Emmi-Roth Käse USA is recalling  Spreadables cheese spreads that may be contaminated with Salmonella.  And here I thought that being “spreadable” was enough of a reason for a recall.  They’re recalling the Crab Creole and Shrimp Scampi cheese spreads.  Wait a minute!  Crab Creole?  Shrimp Scampi?  This is not cheese!  This is not even pretending to be cheese.  Who buys this crap anyway?

Here are two words I never thought I’d use in the same sentence: Mapleton Taxidermy and Cheese Store.  Yup, you read that right.  This is really a store in Ontario, run by a married couple.  He’s a taxidermist, she makes cheese.  Because you always want a really good Havarti when you’re getting your beaver stuffed…um…oh, come on!  You didn’t really expect me NOT to write it, did you?

And now I know the world is ending.  In my last Cheese News, I wrote about the ridiculous amount of crime happening at Chuck E. Cheese’s around the country.  I was amazed.  I was outraged.  I was baffled.  Today I stumbled across a snippet of a similar blog post.  I immediately went to check it out.  Imagine my panic, my dismay, my outright horror when I discovered that I blogged about the same thing as… had the same idea as,…I can’t even write it…Peh…Per…Pere…nope, my fingers refuse to type his name.  Just go look.  Don’t hold it against me.  I promise, it’ll NEVER happen again.

BTW, thank you to Jayne for being a vigilant cheese-watcher!
