My favorite is one called 'St Florentin', but it only seems available in Burgundy - I tried bringing some home to UK once in a cool box, but it went very crusty and hard!  It's delicious for supper with baguette, green apple and a glass of fruity red.  Any tips for transporting cheese?

Got to admit my favourite cheese is Emmental, best one is from M&S.  Got into that last trip when I got some out of the self service on Barf, and was trying out the new rolls - making cheese butties.  Nearest and nicest Emmental I have found is the M&S one.  Goes nice with the Isigny beurre I get from Sainsbury’s...👍

We have a flat in Dives sur Mer which is in Calvados; the 3 AOC cheeses from this Department are Camembert, Livarot & Pont l'eveque.

These are really good soft cheeses, however I often take some Cheddar from the UK to balance them !

There is a factory in Livrarot that gives a really good (and free) tour.

I can feel some cheesy puns brewing - Ed, are you Stilton your main course?

Lucky old you David, a beautiful part of France and all 3 of those cheeses stink to high heaven if aged correctly ...

Here’s part of my lunch today, à camembert running in all directions ...🙀

Where the photo comes from, it really is worth a visit who doesn’t love a cheese bar?

I have to say I love a ripe creamy Brie also a nice Morbier and if I’m getting cheddar withdrawals sometimes a nice cheap Comte does the trick.

Theres a great Fromagier in Plérin if anybody is down that way you can miss it.

There was an explosion in a cheese factory nearby there was de-Brie everywhere.

This constant need to come up with puns is really starting to grate. Ed.

I happen to think that the Netherlands is a very fine country to visit.  Especially by yacht.  It’s clean (noticeably cleaner than Belgium), pleasant, and the people are very friendly.  I just don’t particularly care for either of the cheeses for which the country is gastronomically the most famed.  😀

Cheese porn...? I can't handle all that gooey stuff and as for that antisocial blue vein nonsense, I'd rather just lick green fur out of a bread bin.

Love a bit of Stilton, tried Roquefort once, supposed to be the king of cheeses.  No it ain’t.   Now Saint Augur...🤩
