Cheeses

Just went on a shopping spree at Bloomingfood's.
What's better than a soft cheese like Brie or Camember, or a blue cheese? One that combines them: Cambozola, a soft-ripened cheese with blue veins.

Actually whether it's better could be debated; the blueness is a lot milder than full blue cheeses. OTOH, it's spreadable, not crumbly.

Also picked up was a petit munster, which seems decent, and a very expensive Red Hawk brine-washed-rind cheese, which stinks quite a lot (at least up close) but seems mild in flavor. Though all the cheeses are still cool.

Weird. I'm not even sure what the difference between brie and Camembert is, except that years ago the C at Trader Joe's was more reliably runny vs. brick-like.

Brie has a much stronger flavor to me, and I will politely not say what that flavor is...


Mmm, I love Trader Joe's.
