    Had a lovely 'Dorset Blue Vinny' ploughmans in West Lulworth recently. I think cheese is like beer, why go foreign when we do it so well ourselves?
    That said I've enjoyed a deep fried Camembert and a delicious Roquefort and white wine sauce with scallops and sea bass lately.

    Just take care! You'll have that David Duffield bloke sniffing round the forum if you are not careful. You know what he's like when he gets a sniff of cheese! :blush:

    I'm with Rhythm Thief - in so much as cheese can kick ass, grilled haloumi does it for me.

    Also like a lovely feta in a nice crisp salad.

    Blue Stilton is superb when it is at its best, but there's a lot of grotty stuff about.

    A good Red Leicester makes a lovely sandwich, though to eat on it's own I'd probably go for a Camembert.

    I remember a post on C+ from someone who worked at a cheese factory for a bit. Most of the time they made cheddar but when they chose to make red leicester - out came the food dye and it was slapped into the cheddar - Hey presto it's Red Leicester!

    Brie on black pudding then grilled I like. Serve with onion marmalade.
    Double Gloucester for cheese on toast.
    Roquefort for steak.
    Mature cheddar for most cooking.
    Grilled Haloumi I had forgotten about. Ta.
