The concept, in a tiny waxed rind:
We cobbled up a list of 64 cheeses in 4 different shopping regions: Deli, Grocery Store, Whole Foods, and Ye Olde Stanke Cheese Shoppe (a.k.a. Extreme Cheesnobbery, a.k.a. my home) … We’re sure you all have opinions as well, so here’s your chance to get out there and rock the cheese vote. We’ve already done the rankings and the match-ups; all you have to do is vote in the polls and keep an eye on the brackets to watch your favorites soar through the tourney with the grate-est of ease.”
Me, I’m pulling for Limburger. And that’s not just ’cause I met the last Limburger maker in North America, and he happens to be a really nice guy. It’s a robustly flavored washed-rind cheese with complexity and character that change radically with age, and … anyway, go vote.
