But how was the cheese?

About as developed as a double creme brie, with a slight bitterness. No milky powdery texture whatsoever. No outright barnyard. Decent. I hadn't had Georgia cheese before. There are, of course, local creameries with more delicate product, but they're farmers market only.

< thread drift> ... I happened to be at a local farmers' market this evening. One thing that's kind of surprising about living here in this very white state is that a nearby city has a large Somali population. There is a "Somali Bantu" community association that, among other things, grows food. They have a table at the market. Some of these folks were obviously very serious farmers back in the old country because their veggies freaking rock.</thread drift>

I can't believe no one has brought up Velveeta and Boone's Farm.

Also, Humboldt Fog. mmmmmmm
Velveeta and Boone's Farm and Humboldt Fog. Isn't that sort of like Fred and Barney and Katharine Hepburn?

Those are the names of a rebellious youth on a budget.

Trader Joe's sells a Cheddar and Horseradish blend that goes well with a nice Cab.

Tony Bourdain introduced me to this dairy farm back when I lived in NJ.

Now I need to order some to ship over to CA for the ski club trips....


That mountain is where I learned to board. 10-pack of lessons with rentals...

And I have a special place of hatred of their gondola.
