    it is, but not the easiest to make with kids, this one is dolloping in a big bowl and stirring ;)

    ooh that is an easy recipe... I have found myself with a few hours spare this afternoon - quite tempted to give that a go. annoying to have to wait for the base to set though.... I ought not to make it though...

    I've just remembered the soft cheese I have in the fridge is half fat. That wouldn't do would it?

    ericjarvis give a feck for the feckless

    I shall be trying to find a source of Lancashire Blue and Cotherstone. The latter being a great winter cheese. The former being the best cheese there is.

    I will tell you tomorrow if you really want to know. I can now confirm that La Cave a Fromages is bloody pricey.

    So far on my Xmas cheeseboard:

    Secret cheese
    Mimolette
    Brie
    Beaufort
    Bleu de Causses
    Goat's cheese

    Probably "need" a good cheddar, and maybe one other. We also have emmental. :hmm:

    Bought some Stilton, Danish Blue, Emmenthal and and some Cheddar spiced with ginger that I thought sounded nice. Woman in front of me in the queue spent 120 quid on cheese alone. :eek:

    I resisted the purchase of some 'Stinking Bishop' although I will have to try it one day.

    :eek: And I thought I was being extravagant!

    Stinking Bishop is nice but my favourite whiffy cheese is Epoisses.

    My fridge is starting to fill up with cheeses.

    At the moment there's

    stilton
    white stilton with some fruit in it
    smoked
    brie
    some spreadable blue cheese

    Yeap, I still can't decide which cheeses to use in mine, but it's going to be cheesy.

    My toddler is addicted to Babybels. We have one of those fondue bowls, but I've not introduced her to it yet, bit worried about its napalm qualities.

    I also have edam, cheddar and pecorino in the fridge, but they're pretty much always there. I have a cheese problem I think :hmm:
