I really like a good white stilton. After the new year I'm going to start making some mold cheeses like brie and blue. I have a book that has an interesting looking recipe for Gouda that's inoculated with Roqueforte.

Anyone else like Cotswolt?

A couple of years ago I botched up both a blue, and a Cheddar cheese. It was fascinating though, but a bummer to have to wait so long to get results. I haven't tried making cheese since.

I'm lucky enough to be acquaintances with a local dairy farmer who will sell me milk right out of the cow. :)

This post was started in July 2005, for some reason that just strikes me as funny... and makes me crave some cheese.
I bet TF only had about 500 posts when he started this.
