Stinky cheeses

I have just read the article about the stinkiest cheeses, and no mention of reblochon.

I never knew where to keep it. And yes, I would put it in the fridge, but even then, the fragrant odour would weep out, our home would 'stink', but less than if I had just left it out.

I have bought other smelly cheeses, but never as frequently, as rebloch was a local cheese.

Re: Stinky cheeses

My tutor at college in France took some Munster to the Yemen in his suitcase once. Apparently after leaving his case open outdoors in the open air in hot temperatures for a week, the smell still lingered....

Reminds me of a story in 3 Men in a Boat - scroll down a bit:

I don't think it was a french cheese though.

Because of its pungent odour, Epoisses de Bourgogne, is banned on French public transport.

Re: Stinky cheeses

What a lovely french word that is, 'maroilles'!


Strange isn't it, I can work out how to say that immediately, and yet some english words I see for the first time, I have trouble speaking out loud, as the 'rules' are so varied.
