Found Some Great Cheese Recently...

Postby Triple Freak » Mon Jan 07, 2008 3:17 pm

I found some 4 year old Canadian cheddar at Whole Foods recently.
$10 a lb though. It's called Black Diamond. It doesn't say where in Canada it's made, but it's a white cheddar that tastes great. Crumbly, extremely sharp, and decently priced, for a 4 year old cheese, that is.
If you have a Whole Foods near you, maybe you can find some.
It's worth seeking out.
All for now. :wink:

The local market near my house sells black diamond. I agree it is great cheese. They also have an Irish Cheddar. I can't remember the name. I will look the next time I am there.

I love the Irish Sharp Chedder. Not just the flavor, but how it feels in my mouth. It's nice. Got some from Trader Joe's.
I like my beer how I like my women...Czech.

On Tap: nothing :'(

To Brew: Wild Hop Honey Ale from Homebrewer's Garden book, Urquell clone, Lavendar Ale (and since I'm a chick I am going to dye it purple), more and more OBCA

I really like the Dubliner brand sharp Irish cheddar. It's not super expensive or high end and is a good all around cheddar with a nice bite to it.

Check out Cabot cheese if available. They have cheddars in the normal cheese section, but a lot more in the "specialty" (i.e. pay more section). Great cheese!
