Une femme recommends…

We picked up a small bit of this to put out for our New Years Eve party, and o la la!  I think this is the best cheese I’ve had outside of France.  The flavor is perfect balance between creamy and nutty, and the rind is sweetly briny. Don’t panic, it’s organic! Serve this at your next dinner party, and you’ll impress the serious cheese hounds and even Parisians.
(Edited to add:  Wouldn’t you know my 1000th post would be about cheese!)

    (Oops, typo). My word verification is “pignize”, which must mean pigging out on marvelous cheese. In fact when it is as beautifully full-flavoured as this, I eat less of it.

    Congrats on post 1000. And Cowgirl Creamery is a favorite here too.

    Oh, yum! Nothing beats cheese — except maybe chocolate?

    Congratulations on your 1000th post!
    Now where can I buy that delicious cheese? They don’t sell it at Trader Joe’s do they?

    Mmmm sounds wonderful. Wonder if we can get it here in Australia? Would love to try it. And a great post before about style – you are so right about listening to your inner voice and if you like it and it suits you, don’t take any notice of others who may not!! X

    Congrats on the 1000th post! And that cheese sounds delicious! Making a note of it.

    1,000th post!?! Huge.

    And the cheese and chocolate are killing me. I don’t need either, and would adore having just a taste of both. Maybe a nice époisse – hard to come by in my neck of the woods.

    Bonne année 2011 !

    Ah, cheese, no idea what your´s tastes like, but it looks good.

    Wow — 1000. As a very-late-to-the-game blogger on post 107, and a long-time reader, I am deeply impressed.

    Congratulations on the milestone!

    I have the UK magazine article that mentions your blog scanned in and ready to send to you. How would I do that?

    P.S I am only “anonymous” today because for some reason it won’t let me use my google account to post a comment. ARgh! Technology! (or maybe it’s just me! *sigh*)

    Bon anniversaire chère Pseu!Merçi pour ce merveilleux blogue.

    Bien manger, c’est le début du bonheur, allez-y avec votre délicieux fromage.

    Bonne et heureuse année!

    Oh, yes, it’s good!! If you like Cowgirl Creamery, also try Sally Jackson cheeses from WA state.

    Duchesse – yes, just a small bit is Very Satisfying. I can eat enough brie to stop a train, but this one begs to be savored in small bites.

    Kalee – thanks!

    LPC – thank you! We’d hoped to visit their store when we were up that way in September, but ran out of time.

    Rubiatonta – The four basic food groups: Cheese, Chocolate, Coffee and Wine. 😉

    Belle de Ville – I’m not sure about TJ’s, but they sell at Wally’s and I’d bet even money the BH Cheese Shop would have it.

    metscan – thank you! I’ve rarely met a cheese I didn’t like. This one is a semi-soft, full-flavored cheese, nutty with slight ammonia.

    Semi Expat – thanks! I keep having to remind myself though about trusting my own style voice.

    Big Little Wolf – thank you! I’m holding out hope that researchers will soon announce the overwhelming health benefits of both chocolate and cheese.

    Dorothea – thank you! I’m not as prolific as some; it’s taken me almost 4 years to get here.

    bonnie-ann – thanks. I think this one has pushed Humboldt Fog out of the #1 spot for me…

    Karen K – they have a shop in the Ferry Building? Cool!

    Sally – oh, thank you so much!! You can e-mail to me at pseub (at) sbcglobal (dot) net. Thanks again for this!

    Julianne – bonnie-ann lives in NY and has found it there, so I’d guess it’s probably available where you are. You might check any local wine shops, or your local equivalent of Whole Foods. It’s worth the hunt!

    Orane – Bonne et heureuse année to you too! Mille mercis!

    Miss Janey – yummy indeed!

    Aunt Snow – making a note of that one, thanks!

    I had to laugh when I saw your post. This is my favorite cheese and while I have not been fortunate to try all the cheeses in France, it definitely is the best cheese in the U.S. I discovered it when I used to cater here in Marin. If you are ever in the Bay Area, it is definitely worth a visit to the creamery.
