Twenty first day of Advent...


I would like to make a recommendation for any British readers of this blog. Sprint down to Sainsbury's and buy a "Goats Cheese Log" ( Bûche du Poitou ). I bought some for the Christmas cheese board but I had some this morning and it was delicious. It is sold like the picture below...


... but I guess elsewhere it will look like this...


I generally don't buy cheeses because of slimming world and I had forgotten the variety of French cheeses out there. I also bought some Stilton, aged Lancashire cheese and some specialist Wensleydale. My son and Mrs C. aren't so adventurous when it comes to cheeses preferring straightforward English cheeses although I guess I will be eating the Stilton myself. Come January I will be rejoining SW and these cheeses will be distant culinary memories. C'est la vie ( C'est la fromages! ).
TTFN.

I think they must have an overstock of this as they are selling it in even the tiny branches (I noticed when in one yesterday). The Somerset goat log they do (year round) in Sainsbury's is also very good, and good Value. And quite small. Luckily as I have devoured one in a sitting on several occasions.

Ooh! Thanks for the tip as I don'y think the cheese will last 'til the day itself. I may buy some of that Somerset Log.

Quelle Fromages!
One of the perks of printing labels for a stilton cheese dairy is the chance to use their factory shop. Huge variety brought darn sarf with us, a couple of blues, garlic/herb whirl, shropshire with onion/chive, stilton with mango/ginger and a festive stilton with all manner of goodies within!
