I admit it, my knowledge of cheese is basic, but we def do like it.

I prefer Camembert all nice and oozy, but buying one that is seems to be decidely hit and miss.

Even on holiday in France: Yummy, yes. Smelly, yes! Runny, sometimesconfused

What should I be looking for??

GrimmaTheNome Wed 21-Nov-12 19:28:06 don't buy a gooey one, you buy one a while before you want to eat it and if you haven't bought it in time and its underripe, cook it. Same deal as with pears really.

Baked Camembert with crusty bread, jalapeño peppers and a nice bottle of red.... Mmmm

You need to visit my cheese stall! grin
Camembert is never ripe before its best before date! Dont bother buying from the supermarket unless you want to wait a week or so until you can eat it!

I bought one yesterday but the use by date is Christmas Eve. I can't wait that long! Will be trying it baked this weekend I think.

Saggy - you have a cheese stall? I dream of being a cheesemonger. Where is it? <gets in car and starts engine>
