Some days being a food blogger is pretty brilliant. Like when a parcel arrives and it contains ..CHEESE. Oh and a really cool cow coolbag which my toddler LOVES.
I love cheese. Does anyone not love cheese?
I was like the cat that got the cream and of course I just had to dig in straightaway..starting with the Reserve Vintage which is still far and away my favourite of the selection I was sent. I wish I had more words to describe how good it was but the two packets we were given quickly emptied between myself, my OH, my mum and of course Izzy the cheese fiend which should say it all. We had it on crackers, with chutney and just on its own.
I had great intentions of creating fabulous recipes with the other variations but apart from using it to top gnocchi bakes and pasta dishes we have more or less eaten it by itself as it’s such great cheese.
I mean most cheese is good but sometimes I feel that cheese ready packed in supermarkets can taste a little bland. This isn’t even slightly bland, there is no plasticky taste and there are options to suit all palates and dishes.
I have one pack of extra mature left which I’m going to use to make a pie and I will come back and add the recipe but I wanted to tell you all about it now and urge you to go buy it. Especially the reserve vintage… Ooh and tell me whenever you see it on offer please. I feel I’m going to become an addict.
