Selection of cheeses

Aussie travel blog
We had a feast of cannon bear cheese, a huge loaf of bread, [...] for dinner! [...] We awoke after a lovely sleep in, ate our museli and cannon bear and vegemite sandwich which we also made for lunch

Oaka cheese was a great addition but i’m sure Parmesian would work fine too.

I guess Parmesian might be an English translation

Recipes to save
It is very good for party’s or snakes. Ingredients – Take a 1 to 2 lbs. Block of Sharp Chatter Cheese

Nice combination of pears, Rockford cheese, walnuts and iceberg lettuce.

I buy Racket cheese by the half rounds on occasions, as we use a lot of that

Re: Selection of cheeses

Trop drôle. My taste runs to “goody” and “half hearty.”

Here’s a cheese you don’t usually see on a cheese plate:

Workout forum:college cheese i love this stuff and lowfat milk maybe”

Bulletin board post: “I thought that “cottage cheese” was ” collegecheese—and only college students were supposed to eat it…I also thought that all TV shows took place in the same universe, so that the Cleavers were neighbors of Rob and Laura Petrie, and that the Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Presents took place in the same area, so to speak…and I had the oddest delusion, that stayed with me until I was 14”

Re: Selection of cheeses

I love “cannon bear” cheese. I think it’s pushed the acorn right out of my lexicon.

Ken’s “fetid cheese” should probably be added to the platter:

Plenty of hits of “ricottage cheese.” And ditto “limpburger”—which sounds even less appetizing than the original. I was disappointed however to find that “manta ray jack cheese” was a nopecorn.

Bummer (about the manta ray Jack). This is a great collection.
