OMG, did I kill this community? I made the last post in December last year, hyping my book. Ha.

I'm hear to plug myself again actually. I'm going to be concentrating my cheese posts on my personal website:
Gordonzola dot net but I also created an LJ feed for it. LJ was my first online love after all.

And my book is still coming out. March 2010 on Chelsea Green. Yes, that's a year later than it was supposed to be, but the economy did a number on the publisher I was previously contracted to.

So, had any good cheeses lately?

My current favorite: anything from La Clarine, especially the Roussette. But it's super-small production so if you're outside Northern California, it'll be tough to find.

I was wondering if it was dead in here. I haven't had many new adventures of late other than the "extra mature" goudas that I'm addicted to.
I am currently eating shamefully-boring cheese - some block Monterey Jack from Safeway, and a whipped-with-herbs spread of some kind - but I suppose it's better than no cheese at all?

The best cheese experience I've had recently was putting Cowgirl Creamery's Fromage Blanc on halves of apricots bought that morning at the Farmer's Market. We also had some of their Mt. Tam with a white cherry/apricot jam from Blue Chair on fresh foccacia, which was outstanding. Particularly with a cold bottle of Veuve Cliquot.
I finally tried some Beehive Barely Buzzed, but I didn't really like the graininess of the coffee coating. I couldn't overcome that part. I think I like my cheeses undusted, or something.
yeah, I don't eat the coffee part.
Maybe everyone's lack of posting is due to the economy? Trying a cheese you don't know is a gamble (except at Whole Foods ^_^) and therefore expensive...
