Limburger: The Ultimate Guilty Pleasure

January 24, 2012

Coming home from the store, you may wonder who or what smells so rank, until you remember that you’re carrying home a brick of my guilty pleasure – Limburger cheese! It’s commonly known to be aromatically intense, but in this case, the bark is worse than the bite; the flavours are quite mild in comparison. Excellent in a sandwich with its beefy, savoury and yeasty qualities, and even better with beer, this cheese is favoured among many an elderly gentleman. Channel your inner little old man as I have, and fall in love with Limburger!

The Best Baa Experience

First off, my thanks to Elisabeth Bzikot for taking the time to speak to me early on a Saturday market morning. She is an incredible cheesemaker, and a lovely person all around.

Secondly, apologies for my ridiculous case of bed head, it was rather early.
