Yes, you read it correctly. Orgasmic cheese… not organic.

Went to the Alibi Room last night and had the cheese platter. There was this nondescript semi soft cheese paired with a pile of roasted organic hazelnuts. I spread, took a bite, popped a hazelnut and 3 seconds later it was a nutty orgasm in my mouth. I have NEVER had such a reaction to any cheese before, and it beats out my current fave Beecher’s Flagship by miles.

The Tomme Gros Ille (Quebec) can be found at Mount Pleasant Cheese (new place, May 08) that specializes in Canadian Cheese.
