Cheese: Week Five
Who takes photos of crackers? This girl right here. I couldn't help it, they were pretty.
So, about the cheese. We had a ton of it on Friday:
Stinking Bishop Humbolt Fog Brin D'Amour Tartufello Sprout Creek Farm Ouray
Humbolt Fog won by a landslide, and was the first to go. But I wonder if it had anything to do with the Brin D'Amour?
Did anyone ever have Brin D'Amour? It was strong and unpleasant. My friend Jeri did some research and discovered that an ammonia taste was indicative of spoilage. Perhaps that explains it, because it tasted like what I imagine cat urine tastes like.
We suffered through it in the spirit of cheese night, but we quickly chased it with some Humbolt Fog and wine. Shudder.
Perhaps Brin D'Amour and Stinking Bishop (not so stinky, actually) switch their names.
Update! Chez Lou Lou pointed out that we likely had some bad Brin D'Amour. Check out her post here.
