Just when you thought I am done with all the cheeses, I discover another one for you that peeked my curiosity.
Today, I bought a cheese from Normandy and it's name is Le Petit Livarot. And it is the most pungent cheese yet. I may have said that before, but this one has them all beat. Seriously, by a mile.
Named after the village where it's originated, Cheese.com has nothing but nice things to say about it. Apparently there are wordly people over at that website. Not worldly, wordly. BIG difference.
Let me quote them: "The taste is nutty, melting in the mouth, to release flavours of a salty lemon and spiciness. The texture is creamy, smooth and quite runny at room temperature".
I love it. Here is my vocabulary.
"It's pungent with an aroma reminiscent of a locker room in Bulgaria after a soccer game. (having been to a locker room in Bulgaria,makes me worldly, but not wordly) When I left it sit out on the kitchen counter for a few minutes, it was runny and the smell got worse. While a group of flies were keen to attack my Iberico ham, they did steer clear of the cheese plate". And this is why I am not a writer. Hear that, Mrs. Red Deer?
Poking fun aside, it is actually really good cheese. I did enjoy it with some ham and drank a glass of Pineau alongside to cut the fat in my belly. If you like smelly stuff, buy it. The flavor is really good. Here is another write up about this great product
