What type of brie GoOnThen?

Partial to Brie de Meux myself, can be strong and smelly!
Report Ovalman. May 14, 2017 11:56 AM BST
I have Tesco's Ripe and Ready Brie atm but can't say I'd recommend it. I usually get some sort of cheese most weeks to snack on so maybe we could use this thread for reviews. It's pretty bland with no flavour, I'd rate it 2/10.

I am partial to 5 counties out of Tesco. You get a mini cheeseboard in one with Cheddar, Cheshire, Red Leicestershire and 2 other cheese crammed into a small block.

Not generally fussed pauly, I like the crumble free texture when assembling my cracker. I'll give your recommendation a try if I spot it though.

Port and Stilton are wasted on each other.  Stilton is best with a Sauterne or another sweet white.

Proper unpasteurised Brie or Camembert is very fine, but in this group, Epoisses is smelly and brilliant - eat with a spoon.

"That's easy. You milk her into a triangular bucket."

At Scolton Manor Museum in Pembrokeshire they have a triangular churn. Lovely locally-made old piece of work, won a prize at a big agricultural show in Surrey a hundred years ago.

My favourite cheese is Emmental. Swiss is best but the French version by President is nice, too

Too many to mention but defo the soft & creamy variety.

A quick look in my fridge tells me I need to go shopping but in my cheese box I currently have Tesco Finest Stilton & St Endellion Cornish Brie.

I ALWAYS look in the "sell-by" fridge in Tesco and buy all the soft cheese on offer and put it in my freezer when I get home.  Same with organic milk.  Simply transfer to the fridge a couple of days before requirement and BINGO!

First cheese I've tried since my above post but I got some White Stilton from the reduced isle in Tesco's. Medium to soft, it crumbles easy and creamy in the mouth. It reminds me of a goat's cheese. Even at 50p for a decent sized block I wouldn't buy it again.

I'd give it 2/10 also.

Dunno about any legal requirements, but mature cheddar is more expensive than mild or medium.

Can anyone call their cheese mature or extra mature and have a higher price?

Loads of apparently 'mature' cheddar e.g. Cathedral or Pilgrims...isn't.

Enough is enough. The truth must out. Cheese is the smegma of Satan. The different varieties come from different areas under his satanic majesty's foreskin. The other main variable is which sinner he has been sodomizing recently.  Brie think Fred West, mature cheddar Uncle Joe, Clement Freud stilton, Mother Teresa Dairylea triangles and so forth.

If I can turn one sinner aside from his cheesy path to hell, my living will not have been in vain.

That's funny, I just made a coffee with a 2 litre milk bottle that's nearly finished and it's on the turn. The coffee looked lumpy and I gave it a sniff expecting the bottle to be disgusting. It must have got the "right" kind of bacteria in it as, surprisingly, it smells pretty nice, like a nice cheese!

I bought some stilton on election day thinking to just have a bit now and then, but ended up eating it with wholemeal seeded bread all evening and all through election night until 7am Shocked

I do have quite a variety because I shop in Waitrose a lot and when they REALLY reduce the cheese I buy it.  Stilton £6 kilo, Roquefort £12 kilo etc

French cheese well overrated.

Roquefort is too sweet and I wouldn't bother licking Brie or Camembert even if it was spread over Eugenie Bouchard's arse.

Shropshire Blue, Stilton, Cheddar, Cheshire and Lancashire are the chosen cheeses. You can bin the rest.

I have just tried 'robiola nonno nanni' and it is very nice.  It is a very fresh cream cheese, sort of.  On wholemeal seeded bread, mmm.  I love trying new things at Waitrose when they are reduced  but they are usually reduced for a reason Sad  However, I would buy this cheese at the normal price.  You are better of buying food from marks and spencer, Waitrose ready meals and everything else  are normally not worth the money and not great.
