Cheese - The Ultimate Food

>> Thursday, May 21, 2009

Taking it back old school I decided to re-post this again. Annie's parents are coming in town and she asked me what kind of cheese she should get for her parents and without hesitation I said "Port Salut!" Read below my previous review which still reigns true:


For my first product review I am going to discuss something that could possibly be one of my greatest culinary passions: cheese. So yeah, I'm a member of the cheese of the month club, courtesy of a Christmas present from my wonderful dad.

Every two months (I know, I said cheese of the month club, but bi-cheese of the month club is a mouthful, calm down) I get 3 new cheeses. One that has apparently left a profound impact on me is the Port Salut and yes, its French, but no, it is NOT stinky, in fact it is awesome.

Imagine a muenster cheese, that is a lot softer and milder in taste. So the next time you put cheese out at a party spare your guests of the typical spread, with havarti and cheddar, and take a closer look and pick up Port Salut (may be called SAFR Port Salut) everyone will think you're a lot classier and if possible, more awesome. Pair that sucker with some fruit and a nice white wine and everyone will love you. At least I will.

Renee, my sweet niece----
I really hope you don't have anything against stinky cheeses (aka "food of the gods.") I know that we all have our preferences, but you must give these odorous dairy products a fair shake! IMHO, a perfectly ripened Stilton accompanied by a juicy Bosc pear and a glass of something red is a combo made in heaven (and it's called "dinner" at my house at least twice a week!) I'm looking forward to reading about your adventures. Wish I could join you!! I have you on my Bloglines list, so I'll check in whenever possible. Good luck!
Love, Aunt Cathy

for the recommendation on the Port Salut. Bought it for a birthday dinner party and it was a hit. Haven't had the time to figure out what to do to add a message on your blog so I thought I would at least say THANKS here! Me and my friends are cheese-aholics too so it was a treat that no one had tried before.
