I go for stench. This could be in the form of an extremely mature cheddar, stilton or maybe a brie...all left in a warm room for a couple of hours first.

We had one called "Stinking Bishop" which sounds like it might be right up your alley X-Q. It honked. Tasted good though.

Aah, the favoured cheese of Wallace & Gromit I believe.

I absolutely love stilton and a good brie is always nice as well. Studding a wheel of brie with garlic and then covering the surface with honey and melting it in the oven before using a nice, warm, crusty baguette to dip into it afterwards is the ultimate in gastronomic decadence.

A glass of mellow red is an essental for all cheese related activities.

Depends what you want to do with it.

Gorgonzola melted on a pizza. Lovely with pear!

Cheddar in a sandwich

Roquefort with port.

I don't know. Cheese a wonderful thing. There's too many to have a favourite.

Again, all the most tasty foods aren't particularly great for you. Cheese is a delicious guilty pleasure after a good meal.

I like all cheeses but Roquefort has to be my favourite, although I'm also rather partial to a really good Stilton, the sort that's really strong and quite soft rather than the harder stuff you tend to get.

The reason the cheese man gave for our love affair with strong cheese is that we have an inherent trait to eat things that are good for us, apparently blue cheese has lots of friendly bacteria in it similar to those in Yakult etc. I thought, hmmm that dosn't really add up with the current obesity epidemic, still, it's a nice idea.

Interestingly, the strength of the cheese is directly proportional to the level of terror experienced during a nightmare.

E.g a wedge of brie before bedtime will induce mild alarm during REM, For intense horror, eat yourself a big hunk of rouqefort.

Interesting...but cheese doesn't bring on nightmares per se, it brings on more dreams, makes them more vivid.

Well I did not sleep well at all last night, I reckon I ate around a pound of assorted cheese ranging from a very mild goat to a very strong Roquefort. Don't remember any nightmares though.

Strong cheddars

Sheeps cheeses from the pyrenees

Blue French cheeses

Runny French cheeses

But my favourite of all was a cheddar-like cheese from my local farmers market. I used to buy it by the truckle.

Old farmer near retirement had started to make cheese as a sideline, despite his wife thinking the additional workload was too much of an effort at his age. Regular buyers were told that if they turned up at the farm they'd find a fridge round the back. Help yourself and pay on an honesty system, for which purpose they left a box of loose change on the fridge.

Unfortunately I've not seen him for a couple of years. Hopefully his wife's counsel prevailed rather than the alternative

I believe the Frenchies go for a good stinker too - maybe there's a socialist vein to that line of thought...

and don't the same Frenchies have a blue cheese that stinks so much it is banned from being carried on public transport?

I live in the Welsh borders and we have a lot of good local cheeses here - Y Fenni and Tintern are particularly good. Also, second the vote for Isle of Mull Cheddar. However my all time favourite is from Stow, comes in a truckle, is really stinky and almost liquid inside - you need a spoon for it: problem is I can't remember the name and haven't been able to get re-supplied for ages so if anyone can tell me what it's called I'd be very grateful.
