*Okay, so it’s not Tuesday.  Work is really frantic right now, leaving less personal time in the evenings, so I’m running behind.  Anyway, on with the Cheese Post:

mr. jolt & I took some time while in the city last weekend to nibble some new cheese (other reviews will appear in the coming weeks).  One of these was Bleu d’Auvergne, a French cow’s milk blue cheese that is simply delicious.

It’s creamy in texture and much milder than Valdeon or Cabrales, so if you don’t like super pungent blues such as those, d’Auvergne may be more your speed.  It spreads easily (like butter!) onto a slice of French baguette.  I definitely give a big thumbs up.  If only I’d had a cooler with me, I would have packed some to bring home.

It is made in the Auvergne region of south-central France -see the wiki on it if you want more background.  I can attest that it works well with a glass of Reisling, as the wiki suggests.
