Only in France would there be a cheese van that comes to a campground once a week so campers can have access to the choicest artisan cheeses from the local area. It was the start of a very long heatwave which saw the temperatures creeping up towards 40c so I smelled the cheese van before I saw it. I was like a moth to a flame. I’m hard pressed to think of a cheese I don’t like but I am a huge fan of bold flavoured washed rinds, palate gripping blues and soft cheeses that have aged so well they literally ooze when cut.
I am very, very excited to have been invited to the VIP Breakfast of the Brisbane Cheese Awards on 5 June, where I will have an opportunity to meet some of the producers when the awards are announced. So, stay tuned for a cheese update!
