Vacherin du Mont d'Or & other cheeses [split from College student visiting London]

Hi Hounds, we split this from the other thread because we thought that this would give the cheese stuff more prominence. Enjoy. - The Chowhound Team


Limster, I'm also a huge fan of Vacherin Mont D'Or, do you have a favourite producer/label or supplier? I normally get mine from Waitrose and more recently from French market stalls that have popped up in Swiss Cottage and Hampstead Village near where I live. I've also bought one from Selfridges Food Hall in the past. They also sell it at Wholefoods (and by the slice) but I haven't tried it. I haven't paid particularly close attention and like every version that I've sampled, where do you buy yours and have you detected nuances and differences in quality?

Btw, I discovered a cheese in Spain last year called Torta Canarejal, it's superb and reminded me a lot of Vacherin, but haven't been able to find it in London as yet. Apparently it's on the menu at El Bulli these days.
