    Two of my favourite cheeses.

    A nice mature cheddar, widely sold in Thailand.



    And a soft, creamy blue.

    It's definitely worth a try. I did a UK cheeseboard for some French friends after they teased me about English cheese. They had only really heard of cheddar cheese and were very pleasantly surprised. The Shropshire blue was a real favourite for them.



    A good hard cheese that I enjoy when I up up in Lincoln is Lincolnshire Poacher. I prefer the mature unsmoked variety, and buy from the market up by the Cathedral on a Sunday morning.

    Can't forget a good Crumbly Wenslydale either...

    I enjoy an Italian cheese board for lunch and in particular the range of fruit mustards that are served. I am especially fond of red fig mustard with a soft cheese.

    I won't bother with the obvious parmigiana and mozzerella, although I really enjoyed the mozzerella when I was in Bari a few years ago.

    I am also not a great fan of Gorgonzola, just doesn't agree with me for some reason.

    First up is Rochetta, which is made from a 50/50 split of cow's milk and sheep's milk.

    Moving swiftly across from Turin to Venice and next one is another lovely sheep's milk blue cheese, Basajo. No need to add port and mix like you do with Stilton as this is already steeped in white wine.

    You just have to try it...

    I don't mix cheese and port together, i have a device that takes care of that process.

    This is the second year in a row that I haven't been to Holland to visit the gardens of Keunkenhof. We usually stay close to the gardens and travel to different areas by car and pop into Amsterdam on the train. Lots of different cheese, but none that I would consider exceptional that need to be tasted.

    If you get the time it is worth going to the cheese markets though. I like the one at Leiden, which is a nice town close to where we stay. Not far from there is the famous cheese market of Woerden and to the North of Amsterdam is the one at Arkmaar, all worth a visit if you are touring the area.

    Apologies in advance to those that love Dutch cheese...

    Since it is Eid, enjoying eating and relaxing. Time for some more cheese. (basically, whatever we had in the fridge, since the shops are closed today)

    Top was a Danish Mature Cheddar (Emborg), middle is a creamy blue, not sure from where as the label was missing, and the bottom one is a light, creamy brie. (Castello, also Danish)

    I suppose it must be the rapacious import duties, but decent cheese was well pricey in Thailand. I rarely shop here, but stuff crops up in the fridge at or about it's "sell by" date all the time, well cheap. Not saying aussie cheese is a world beater (it isn't) but they do an OK job of most varieties. The brie & camembert here is kinda gormless compared to the real thing, but that's about my only whinge.

    I'll create a thread on our trip to Croatia sometime next week. In the meantime, I enjoyed a couple of the hard cheeses while I was there. This is one of them.....

    Paški sir, similar to some of the hard italian cheeses and good with a fruit mustard or with ham for breakfast.

    It looks almost like a parmesan . . .

    Maybe not in the same league as France, but try some of these:

    Limburger Käse:



    Harzer Käse




    And so many more.










    Deutschland zählt neben Italien, der Schweiz, den Niederlanden und Frankreich zu einem der wichtigsten Käseländer der Welt. Rund 150 verschiedene Käsesorten werden in Deutschland hergestellt
    Deutscher Kase: Kasevielfalt von der Ostsee bis ins Allgau



    Admittedly, though, my favourite cheese is a nice Pont-l'Eveque
