You should really go. Some of the best food I've had anywhere. Here is provala making:

I am a philistine. Parm is my favorite cheese. Gruyere is probably second.

Gruyere is severely underrated. Grâtiné gruyere is pretty awesome. Also, the combination of caramelized onions and melted gruyere is hard to beat.
post #79 of 445
the combination of gruyere and almost anything is amazing. it's the king of melting cheeses. still, it's just that ... a melting cheese.

I had a gruyere from a local shop recently that was among the best cheeses I have had.

First time in Naples 6 years ago, friend picked me up at station and we went to her quarter. On the way we stopped of at a cheese shop selling only fresh Buffalo Mozzarella. For lunch with wine and fresh bread.

Give the deetz. Always looking for a good gruyere...

on the gruyere-like tip, there are some really fantastic grades of french comte for those who like that stuff. i know formaggio kitchen in cambridge have like 4-5 different types. 1 i believe is exclusive to their store (in the US that is). I know there is a hard to find one they only get once or twice a year and the 70lb wheel sells relatively fast sometimes

Cypress Grovery Creamery's Humboldt Fog goat cheese just made me very, very happy.

Right!? what are they doing to those goats to make that cheese so damn good....

my daughter went to college up there and if y ou have to ask what is making those goats happy, you probably don't know much about humboldt county. they're really nice folks (cypress grove, that is) and make several terrific cheeses. they do often have funky names, but what the hell. lambchopper is about as buttery a goat cheese as i've had; purple haze is fresh goat rolled in lavender and fennel pollen and truffle tremor is a truffle-flavored ripened goat.

I have heard the raw milk Stilton is amazing. I haven't been able to nab any yet, but at one point Whole Foods in Manhattan was offering it. It's marketed as Stichelton.

CSU Humboldt = Hippie Breeding Ground I could definitely see some premafried dead-head blowing pot smoke into a joyful goat's ear. I dont care what they do, as long as they keep giving us the good stuff.

Lady who founded it was somewhat of a hippie or so i hear. Makes sense with the names. Weird that midnight moon and lambchopper are made over in holland though. foodguy- lambchopper is a sheepmilk ("lamb"chopper) and midnight the goat. Both are really nice goudas though. For those who have tried lambchopper, have you seen the actual whole wheel? Pretty funny looking http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_AlQP1_Y70p...ambchopper.jpg
