A doctor recently told me that the bacteria present in Camembert are identical to those that exist on "ripe" feet.

So nice to know that one's GPs are at the cutting edge of scientific knowledge.

Eh, Cheesy?

Indeed, I've been harvesting said curd for some time now and it goes down a treat at the Rotherham MBC gourmet eveninings. All it takes is a little presentation for the lower-middle classes to suspect nothing:

"Eeyar, Keith, have a go at some o' this cheese"

"Alright, let's have a sniff first. Whooh, it's a bite ripe, Brian. Smells like your Linda's toes did after comin' off o' t'moors t'other weekend"

"Aye I know, he he. Says it's med on cows' milk though, and it's French so it must be decent grub and that"

"Stinks like feet though dunnit"

"Aye, but it's French, Keith, so it must be posh nosh"

"Aye go on then, giz a taste..."

Eh, Cheesy?

Apparently, Samuel Pepys buried two cheeses in his garden to prevent their being consumed by the Great Fire of London.

Anyone else out there have any interesting cheese-related facts?
