Cheese love

We've purchased Humboldt Fog twice in the last three days.

At $19.99 a pound, our addiction can't continue at this rate.

But oh, it is lovely. And so perfect for the waning days of summer.

  5. Oooh, love Humbolt Fog too. And it's ash-y vein down the center is just aesthetically cool looking, no? When we first tried it we described it as "musty boot" tasting...whatever that really means. But it quickly grew on us! I haven't had it in awhile...a nice reminder!

    Have you tried Il Boschetto al Tartufo? It's full of truffles and amazingly good!

  10. That is my idea of cocktail hour perfection. Where do you buy it? I've never tried it and would love to hunt it down.

  11. my favorite cheese, hands down.
    i want it now.
    i know what you mean, $19.99/lb! but maybe this is a good thing, if it was any cheaper, I'd eat a pound a day.

  17. I'm a huge fan of Murray's Cheese Shop in NY and I've gotten Humboldt Fog a few times now! It was actually featured in Wine Spectator last year as one of the 50 best cheeses!

    Have you ever tried Point Reyes Blue cheese? Its really fantastic, my favorite blue (so far), and they have an excellent antique cheddar too.
