    Cheese Facts

    The Greeks eat 27kg of cheese per person per year.

    The US is the biggest producer of cheese but not a big exporter.

    Australia, New Zealand and Ireland are the only people who export more cheese than they eat.

    I like cheese.

    Some cheese things people have said

    A meal without cheese is like a beautiful woman who lacks an eye. — Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin.

    How can you govern a country where there are 246 different types of cheese? — (attributed to Charles de Gaulle)

    NASA has been suppressing some pictures of Neil Armstrong's moonwalk for commercial reasons until they have secured mineral rights:

    No, they are moon trees and the moon you can see is a moon moon. Strangely we can see neither from Earth.

    - Coloured cheeses like Red Leicester, Double Gloucester and coloured Cheddar and Cheshire get their red colouring from Annatto, a flavourless vegetable extract from the seed of a South American tree.

    - Eating a piece of cheese after sugary snacks and after meals can help remineralise tooth enamel and protect against tooth decay.

    One of the better things that the pommies have done is to come up with the King of all cheese STILTON.

    Out of the 43 cheeses mentioned in Monty Python's The Cheese Shop skit, only the Venezualan beaver cheese is not real.

    Not very surprised. Which one among the cheese producers countries would like to import US cheese when they can make far better ones themselves.
    At least in Europe I don't know.

    Pedantic warning , ding ding!

    Australia, New Zealand and Ireland are countries, not people.

    I love cheese, but Thais should import a boatload from somewhere ... anywhere. The Tesco selection out here in the jungle is Tasty, Edam, Gouda all processed, gummy shit. I did find some Double Gloucester at the Friendship Bridge import store for 167 baht per 100g and Monterray Jack for 195 baht. Not bad, if a bit pricey.

    It's crappy Aussie stuff that follows the US method of making cheese.

    Villa has one or two ok, but expensive English cheeses, but it's hard to warrant spending nearly 400B on 200 gr of cheese.

    Unless I'm very much mistaken I think you can get NZ cheeses at Tesco's as well.

    In fact I know the cheddar, but to be honnest the one we can find here taste like the packaging. So...

    Italian, french, swiss, greek ones is what I call cheese. With as many different tastes as you can find. Hundreds of them.

    Meh, not a big cheese fan anyways.

    Although I've been to that pub where those Mainland commercials were filmed. Even had me piccy taken with a cardboard cut-out of that old codger from the ads
