Photo of the Day 17 - Say cheese!

OK, this is a bit of a cheat as the photo is actually from last night, but it's been a rainy, mildly hungover sort of Sunday, and yesterday's pix are far more interesting. We went to our favourite cheese shop, Formatgeria Le Seu, as part of a group outing by the Barcelona Food Events Meet-up Group. The store is run by an amazing Scottish woman, Katherine McLaughlin, who has scoured Spain for the yummiest farm cheeses for her shop, and also serves them with wines and sherry in a tiny dining area at the back.
Whenever we've been there before, we've always done a Top of the Cheeses vote. This time, the goat's cheese in the middle there was my Number One, and the softer cow's cheese on the far right the runner-up. But it's a testament to the quality of the cheese there that, even though I usually loathe blue cheese (why would you eat mould?), I ate every crumb of the extra-strong blue one...
Next time, I must try the cheese ice-cream!

I feel just like that about blue cheese! Cheese ice-cream sounds good, though.

Personally, I love mould in such situations!

I LOVE cheese and feel quite jealous. It hardly figures in the Thai diet and the quality of imported cheese is pretty poor.

That plate looks yummy. What's the thing covering the blue cheese? It looks like a strip of bacon. Cheese ice cream sounds weird but I can't knock what I haven't tried.

What a heavenly place it sounds. And cheese ice cream?! I wouldn't say no that!

I love cheese, especially goats cheese and have to agree with you about blue cheese. I really don't get the point of eating it.
