Sounds like fun, i like a good Jarlsburg or a Gruyere :D with a white pinot grigio/columbard, as for red wine i only like a pure ganache from la mancha with any food but fish.

Roquefort is my fav .

hometown is only a few km from the caves . as locals we always get the best cheeses .

I like red wine with it , but at catering school we were told sauternes and white Port were a good math too .

Philadelphia.

Smeared over one of those broads from the advert.

Mmmmmmhhhhhhhhhhh.

My grandfather was brought up in Switzerland, and he organised the cheese and wine for our hotels.

I remember my favourite being one of the hard goat's cheese.

Wish I could remember the exact one, have found similar but not the actual one over the years.

Wine is great, but a good cheddar and apple cider cannot be beaten.

Favourite cheeses:

Black Bomber - lovely, super strong cheddar with nutty finish.
Coverdale - sort-of like a "strong" Wensleydale. Quite difficult to find, but worth it.
Cotherstone. Mild, but yummy. Difficult to find if you are more than about 2 miles outside of the village.
Camberzola blue brie.
A good blue stilton.

Hungry now.
