An Autumn Cheese Review

Remember when we used to eat cheese and then write a cheese review? Me too. Or maybe the question should have been: remember when we used to blog consistently?

Well speaking of consistent, there’s a store nearby called La Vieille Europe that consistently has non-wallet pillaging prices (looking at you, local grocery store) on imported cheese. And not for a measly sliver either. We’re talking normal sized wedges of cheese.

So in light of this development,  I bought 3 wedges of cheese last week for about 10$, drove to Laval, and “dropped by” Nicky and Jepeto’s for supper where I was totally welcome and not imposing whatsoever in the very least. They barely even resisted when I disguised my voice and forced the front door open.

Anyhow, once everyone calmed down, it was time for dessert.

First up was a White Lemon Stilton. Yes, lemon. Neither of knew that this even existed, but exist it does, and as far as its presence in my fridge goes, it exists no more. Because I ate the rest of it. It’s pretty crumbly though but big on lemony taste.

Then it was the Appledore. This was like eating apple cheese cake. Also firm, with a slightly smaller crumble than the Stilton and easy to slice. What says fall better than apple cheese? I know. “leaf cheese”, but no one’s invented that yet. Or have they…?

Finally, it was the Cheddar au Bordeaux Rouge. I know it doesn’t look like it, but this cheese has a rich pink hue to it. My phone camera (yes, I’ll buy a real camera soon, I promise!) likes to mess with my head and show me vivid previews and then dull the colors afterwards. Especially in low light. Ok, it’s my fault.

Anyway. Red Wine Cheddar is as delicious as it sounds as long as:

a) you like cheese.
b) you like red wine.
c) you like them together as one food.

And that’s all there is to it. These cheeses went well with crackers and pita chips. I also brought some salami prosciutto which was ‘ok’, but not very spectacular.

    I really want to get my hands on some of that that Red Wine Cheddar!!

    And now I’m hungry. Thanks for the review, Mike, and thank you for posting again. Its good to know you and Nicky are alive, although she sounds a bit stand-offish, at least where you’re concerned. I guess that’s what happens when you become an important marketing person who travels a lot. You dont have time for the little people. Anyway, I think I’d like that wine cheese a lot. And the apple.

  • Hey, teacher, leaf that cheese alone!

    Looks scrumptious, Mike. Sorry to hear Nicky lost her job and can’t afford to feed her family. She’s awful lucky to have a friend like you.

  • It’s good. REALLY good 🙂

  • Nicky’s a marketing bigwig, so you now have to make appointments to see her, or take the guerrilla route, which is what I opted for. It’s dangerous, but it works.

  • Is that from the alternate Pink Floyd song Another Brick Cheese in the Wall? Oh that was bad…

  • I bet!

  • On the contrary, Mike, that was a rather gouda one.

  • You got all that cheese for ten bucks! Yet another reason to move to Canada. They all sound good, but lemon Stilton sounds especially amazing. Good to hear from you again, my friend.

  • The first two sound outstanding. Not so much on the third. 😉 I need to find me a store that sells awesome cheese like this.

  • Delightful. I picked up a wedge of Double Gloucester with chive and onion that I plan to break out very soon, once I’m done savoring the Dubliner.

  • Got to have those cheeses (cheezi?). Too bad the commute would cost more than the cheese.

  • OH MY GOODNESS! YUM YUM YUM! I just went to my first Whole Foods and the CHEESE aisle… WOW. I got Cotswold thanks to you guys… never heard of it before the challenge. AMAZING. And then I got a cave aged Gruyere that smells like old socks and tastes like HEAVEN on EARTH!

  • All of those look delish to me! How did I miss this? Why aren’t you guys posting? How can I keep up with you if you don’t?

  • Oooh, cheese porn. More, please!

  • Now I am on a mission to find white lemon stilton here in my neck of the woods.

    And leaf cheese.
