My restaurant has a cheese plate, the cheeses on which change at least every couple of weeks or so. This week's plate has:

Cashel Blue - an Irish cows milk blue distributed by Neals Yard Dairy. Nutty, on the gorgonzola end of blue.

Delice de'Bourgogne - a French triple cream. It looks a little like Brie. Brie is often a double cream. This would be richer than that.

Ibores - a Spanish goats milk cheese, aged to a bite-y sharpness and dusted with Spanish paprika (which lends the cheese a smokey flavor).

La Alberca - a Manchego (Spanish sheep's milk) that is crusted with rosemary at the outset of the aging process which adds a wonderful astringency to the butteriness of the cheese.

We also have French fennel/lemon-cured olives on the plate as well as bits of guava paste.

Sounds fantastic! I love triple cream (my cholesterol level doesn't, but I do and I have more votes).

I bought some fresh organic garlic and herb feta at the Farmer's Market today. It is yummy!

I was wondering that myself!

I occasionally shock friends by ordering a cheese plate instead of a gooey chocolate dessert.

If you're ever in Chicago, I highly recommend The Tasting Room (click on "eat" for their cheese flight menu in .pdf), very nice for an after-theatre bite.

Did not know about this group until I read McGlothlen's Sat post on Cookbookers group. I just made a cheese post over there.
