    I've been overdoing the halloumi lately. Fried cheese, as if it hasn't got enough fat in already.

    It's Christmas soon. The 1st December is the date it becomes acceptable in my house to have a constant running cheeseboard, butter in the fridge and Baileys instead of milk :disco:

    I cannot control myself around cheese. I love ALL of it. Especially cheddar.

    Actually, it's because, unfortunately, selling raw milk and products with raw milk is illegal here. :evil:

    I KNOW RIGHT

    There's some US BASED forums I like to read (in the retarded style of the dear old RIVEDAIRY) where you can TRY AND DEFRAUD PEOPLE, sell DRUGS, FAKE DOCUMENTS, chat about your INCEST and BESTIALITY FANTASIES all DAY and try and ENTICE children for a GOOD NONCING to your HEART'S CONTENT and no one will BAT AN EYELID

    HOWEVER if you type the word TITS then you are SUMMARILY DISPATCHED

    I tried this one cheese in 2006 that I've been trying to find but can't remember what it is. I remember it was a triple cream that tasted a lot like whipped salted butter (except I know it wasn't butter. :D) I want to say it was Brillat Savarin. Could that be it?

    TOP TIP for cheese lovers: the Co-Op's Comté is as good as anything I've had outside of France. So good I'm going to use it tonight in an attempt to make myself like cauliflower cheese.

    I LOVE Port Salut. :disco: I always buy a BIG WEDGE at Christmas time. But then I LOVE ALL types of cheese (except I can't eat the ones with rennet in them, and it doesn't always say which ones have it in them!)

    ATTENTION CHEESE LOVERS

    Lidl's provolone piccante is AMAZING. Mouth stingingly good. Like a sharp, strong Cheddar with more of the mouth feel of a Manchego.

    Their provolone dolce is fine, but a little bland. But then I think they are supposed to be.

    I hadn’t even thought about the vegetarian cheese rennet thing mentioned in this thread but fuck off am I going to bother to investigate in case it makes me not able to have anything...

    A lot of cheese uses animal rennet, especially those with controlled appellation like parmesan, but yeah, cheese wins over baby animals sadly.

    I think I'm almost through the "cold turkey" phase. Vegan cheese is awful and appears to have successfully out my off cheese altogether. Well, until I read this thread that is... :(

    I will NEVER not like cheese. I've no interest in becoming vegan anyway, but it's absolutely the main reason, along with mayonnaise, why I never could. The very thought of not having a good Comté pass by lips again ACTUALLY ROTS MY BRAIN.

    I had a vegan burger at glastonbury that had some sort of vegan cheese on that was amazing. But then I was, as you would imagine, off my tits, so I could have probably eaten an old shoe and it would have tasted nice.

    ATTN CHEESE FANS

    I'm not usually a massive Red Leicester fan, but Aldi's Red Fox is fantastic. In their 'specially selected' range, but still less than two quid a slab.

    The not visiting a supermarket has led to various orders from specialist cheese shops, it has been amazing.

    I don't tend to keep it at home cos I will just EAT IT ALL

    But I have booked to go to the cheese conveyor belt restaurant in Covent Garden where thanks to Eat Out To Help Out next month you can get 75 minutes of BOTTOMLESS CHEESE for £10! So excited.

    Well that's the Stilton gone into a soup with some broccoli. Can't stand it myself, but I'm being a good little housewife and freezing it for Mr L's working from home lunches.
