Humboldt Fog

Saute Wednesday has exposed one of our vices… ashed goat’s cheese is like nothing else on earth.

These days it’s Humboldt Fog (from the Mollie Stone’s around the corner; hell, there are the remnants of a $4.69 chunk in the refrigerator as I type this), but in Australia the Milawa Cheese Company does a pretty credible ashed goat’s cheese as well (and that’s just off the top of my head; country Victoria is fairly littered with high-quality cheesemakers).

They also make unworldly - fantastic - cheese in France (thereby almost excusing their behaviour, according to A), but I haven’t had an ashed goat’s cheese there yet.

If you find yourself nodding (or salivating) as you read this, go over to the Cheese Diaries, the only cheese-focused blog I’m aware of…

P.S. If you know someone in the food industry who can help me out with this, I’d be eternally grateful. Even just an afternoon.
