"Coming of Age: The Maturation of Cheese"

That was a good one, but it's too bad they couldn't get Malkovich for the sequel.

Let me know what they count as the Great Cheeses of America. We have some ideas ourselves, of course.

J. has made contact with a local "cheese historian" who is working on some Best Cheeses of the World project, but is entirely ignorant of New World cheeses (and not interested, the bastard).

They've listed Cypress Grove's Humboldt Fog from California and "Vermont Cheddar" in the course description, and just guessing based on what they carry, we're likely to see Massachusetts' Great Hill Blue and something from Capri (Hubbardston Blue?) in the lineup. What I think we won't see is stuff from Capriole in Indiana, which really should be there. Not sure what we'll see for sheep cheese... can't remember what American sheeps they carry.

There's a story that's been going around the FK tastings about a buying trip where they brought a couple of cheeses from New England to a well-known French affineur for his thoughts. When he tried them, he insisted that the cheeses he tasted just HAD to be French. He was very upset when he learned the truth.

Someone could host their own tasting of "Ghetto Cheeses of America", highlighting the fine textures and subtle flavors of such greats as Cheez Whiz, Kraft Singles, Velveeta, spray cheese, and those little snack packs that come with crackers and red spreading sticks. Serve with crappy beer varieties in dixie cups, maybe meat sticks and jerky for other salty treats.

It's the red stick that makes it delicious

You've forgotten Grated American Cheese Food as well as Kraft Mac 'N Cheese... If I host it, will you come?

Incidentally, have you ever noticed that the Hickory Farms gift boxes (complete with Beef Stick) make for the best severe hangover food?

Re: It's the red stick that makes it delicious

I would definitely come and could provide one or few of the aforementioned cheeses, plus perhaps a dessert course of Hydrox cookies and Tang.

I've yet to sample the bounty of the Hickory Farms gift boxes while hung over, but it makes sense to me.

Those are some good blues, indeed.

He was very upset when he learned the truth.

Heh.

Today J. will be in Paris to observe a cheese-tasting concours at the national Salon d'Agriculture happening this week. She was invited to participate in one as a taster, but it conflicted with this one that was more relevant to her studies. Alas.
