I have always been a wensleydale and mature cheddar girl in the past but was bought a naice cheese board for christmas and thought I'd give them a go. Oh my god - they are delicious especially the blue stilton and the brie! What other cheeses should I try to continue my cheesey education?!!

YABU. Why would you want to eat something that smells like vomit confused

Saint Agur
Camembert - baked & served with fruit (e.g. Cranberry sauce)

Stinkiness not stickiness

Blacksticks and Garstang Blue are both lovely stinky cheeses, local to the northwest. Delicious.

Wow MrsFlorrick I'm adding your list to my New Years resolutions. Sounds amazing.

Blacksticks Blue

A Camembert, left out of the fridge for a least 12 hrs is far far superior to a Brie. Heavenly.

I second blacksticks! But yes, sticky cheese is the shiz smile

agoodbook Mon 05-Jan-15 19:24:24

Definitely Gorgonzola!
Always unpasteurised Cheddar ( eg Isle of Mull )
Vintage Gouda - (Old Amsterdam)
And totally different -Gjetost - its like caramac or am I showing my age with that smile

Smells like vomit. Tastes like HEAVEN.

Stop it you beasts! Stop it! This is torture! I've just been told by my GP that my vestibular migraines (extreme vertigo) are probably triggered by...stinky cheeses!! And...chocolate!! And they're my two favourite things of all time.

sad sad sad

Stinking Bishop (yes really, it's divine!)
Another vote for Camembert - leaves Brie standing!

timeforacheckup Mon 05-Jan-15 19:28:42

Wow! I'm going to work my way through every cheese mentioned.
Sorry hatespiders I should have put triggering!!!

agoodbook Mon 05-Jan-15 19:29:10

Hatespiders you poor thing sad
not that I particularly like stinky cheeses as such, its just that good cheese is often stinky! -
I really didn't like Stinking Bishop - too much hype

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Mon 05-Jan-15 19:30:06

Snap, usual grin I have been known to eat an entire wedge of St Agur in a single sitting.

Also Tomme de Savoie - not particularly stinky but so, so flavourful.

agoodbook Mon 05-Jan-15 19:30:50

and time if you can, buy some quince jelly - goes amazingly well with cheese

If you're in or near London go to the Neals Yard Dairy in Borough Market and try amazing stinky cheeses. My favourite is St Judes
