As I mentioned earlier, I was given 5 kinds of cheese in a care package. Here is the report on the other two cheeses. We decided to be radical and tried them for breakfast with honey, barbecued bread and coffee.
They. Were. Delicious.
- Alex Premium Smooth (Ontario intensity seven cheddar): smooth is right!! This is a lovely aged cheddar – there’s nothing better than a good aged cheddar and honey!
- Val deon (Spanish cow and goat’s milk): still the most fabulous killer blue – strong, heady, creamy but not too strong and heady. Fantastic on its own or with honey. It is still my favourite – almost….
- Manchego (Spanish raw sheep’s milk cheese) Slightly caramelized crystals in this spectacular cheese. This is great with honey and stellar on its own. I can’t wait to try it as a dessert cheese with a little wine or eau de vie. The manchego was T’s favourite – and tied with the Val Deon as my other favourite.
Many many thanks once again to my sister and brother-in-law for these thoroughly delightful tastings. What a great introduction to Spanish cheese; it rocks!!!
Oooh, I just thought of something: apple pie….
