STILTON! This is a larger (24x24") oil painting of one of the KINGS OF CHEESE. It's perhaps the best blue in the world. I loved painting this large, with a ton of paint. SOLD - prints available at :http://mikegeno.com/cheese%20album/pages/208_Stilton.htm
This delicious cheese is full of character. It's a semi-firm cow's milk cheese that comes from both the French administrative department of Savoie and Haute-Savoie in the French Alps. It's earthy, nutty, and at Wedge + Fig, where I found it, they described it with words such as "hazelnut" and "meaty". Naturally that attracted me. This painting is 12x12" and for sale at www.mikegeno.com
5 YEAR AGED GOUDA - I bought this aged gouda at Reading Terminal Market for the color and interesting veins of crystalized strata of goodness. It was much more difficult than I expected. It was completely delicious though. I particularly love nutty cheeses and this one was almost like candy to me. I've been told it's considered the only American Cheddar that can hold up to European standards. I certainly fell in love with it.
MORBIER - a semi-soft cows' milk cheese of France named after the small village of Morbier in Franche-Comté. It is ivory colored, soft and slightly elastic, and is immediately recognizable by the black layer of vegetable ash separating it horizontally in the middle the two milks. Traditionally, the cheese consists of a layer of morning milk and a layer of evening milk." It's deliciously buttery. Prints available here: http://mikegeno.com/cheese%20album/pages/Morbier_PRINT.htm
