Fourme d’Ambert

Fourme d’Ambert

Right, first off, fourme d’ambert is a little bitter, and a little sweet…smooth creamy texture, and a tad fruity..a few nice things going on here. Nice stiltonesque finish No wonder Fourme d’Ambert has  been a firm favourite with the French since Roman times! I got mine from Blasus...

Vacherin

Vacherin

 Vacherin is smooth as silk, and subtly wonderful. The  bark  infuses the cheese with a smoky woodiness that lingers around the creamy ooziness…a lemony tang at the end-nice! Spreads out on the plate like Dulux Magnolia paint…lots tastier though! Got mine from Blasus Deli in...

Chinese buy wine by the vineyard…not by the bottle!

Chinese buy wine by the vineyard…not by the bottle!

With its fairytale turrets and a 15th-Century tower, Chateau Latour Laguens is surrounded by vineyards in a region steeped in European tradition. But this chateau, south-east of Bordeaux, is also at the cutting edge of Asia’s growing economic might. The staff who tend the vineyards and make the wine are still French, but this is now a Chinese-owned domain. It has been taken over by the Longhai group based in eastern China, which has...

Picos Blue

Picos Blue

Picos Blue  is a lovely Spanish blue from the Picos de Europa region. It’s  strong and spicy with a lingering creamy sweet tanginess-with a nutty rind, which is also bursting with earthiness-must have something to do with the sycamore leaves that shroud this Spanish Gem.

Wigmore Cheese

Wigmore Cheese

Wigmore is an English ewe’s milk cheese that comes from the Berkshire region and was created by Anne Wigmore. I bought a slice of  Wigmore at my local Deli, and was blown away by the amazing taste-quite unexpected from the look of it-you’d think it should taste like a typical white soft….not so-the taste is fresh & fruity, with a lemon zeal to it-like a lemon meringue. My pallet was clear after a taste-very...
