    The 'recommend me some cheese' thread over in music has got me thinking about the real thing.
    I've always wanted to try some of that 'stinking bishop' cheese. Does anyone know if they sell it at supermarkets or is it the kind of cheese you can only buy in particular places.
    Also, can anyone recommend some nice strong (preferrably non-soft) cheeses to go on my crackers?

    I like Davidstow cheddar... It's not amazingly strong, but it is a full lovely flavour.

    I like it on Krackerwheat crackers!

    :)

    almost as good as Fishfingers with Krackerwheat crackers.

    Stinking Bishop is very strong. I'd advise only eating it if you've lost a nose.

    i worked in a restaurant who served stinking bishop on the cheese board
    after three weeks and almost 100 complaints from other diners we took it off :)

    it smells stronger than it tastes
    i love cheese like that - pungent and oozing :D

    That's why i'm so interested in trying it. I like nice strong cheese and that seems to be the daddy of strong cheeses from what i've heard.
    I'll deffo check out some of the others people have mentioned though!

    Or this the bacteria that gives it it's unusual smell is the one that makes your sweat turn into BO.

    Yummy.

    St Agur or Rochefort are very nice, as is a good (unpasteurised if possible) stilton. Remember when I was in Wellington, Somerset going to a cheese shop with 24 month matured chedder. Blew me blooming head off :D

    I work as a chef, last year we got a chuckle(sp) of stinking bishop from a supplier (northern select), stuck it in the big walk in fridge, latrer on, opened the fridge door and the fridge stunk to high heaven, smelled like there were 1000 sweaty stinking socks in there haha, taste wise, it was suprisingly ok though.

    That Davidstow Cheddar is nice. Also partial to some Caerphilly too. Nice on a Digestive biscuit with a bit of butter.

    Im quite partial Colliers Welsh mature cheddar. Very creamy and it has an almost sweet taste to it.

    Something a bit milder is stilton with cranberries or apricot
