Yaks!



Kind of looks like these off green grease fruits are vomiting speckled lard. Some wiseacre figures these disgusting little buggers should appear in a beverage. I'd say that was wrong but hell, if you want moldy cheese in your liquor... help yourself. Just don't breathe what must be a special aroma on me, m'kay.

You have a great blog.

I have to agree with PSA, look I love cheese, I love old stinky Canadian Cheddar,... but Blue Cheese is just a little old and rotten for tastes.

Námo Mandos said...

Blue cheese goes well with strong olives, so you are objectively wrong. You have objectively bad taste.

Wouldn't know about the liquor, I'm a teetotaler.

psa said...

Námo baby, taste is always subjective. You might like blue cheeses and olives, congratulations. For you that might represent gustatory nirvana. But perhaps you detest smoked edam and prawns. Does that make you a crass, tasteless peon? Whatever. You can tell me that bits of blue cheese in a drink, boozed or otherwise, sounds like an idea and I'll nod and smile and send you on your way. Have at it. Enjoy what you enjoy. I'll do the same. I'm not wrong, you however, are a bit of a snot to presume that your particular taste should be universally acknowledged as the correct taste.

This certainly has something to do with my French roots, but I can't help but laugh when Zorpheous says blue cheese is a little to rotten for him. I suggest taking a wheel of Port Salut (or Oka if you can't find any) and let it sit on the counter for a week or two. Now the smell may be enough to kill small children, but the taste is incredible. The perfect way to end a good dinner.

Hell virtually any cheese tastes better the worse it smells.

And for the record those olives look good

Frank Frink said...

Sounds perfectly fine to me, but then: a) I also have French roots; b) I really don't drink martinis.

Give me single malt whisky. Instructions are simpler -- pour into glass. Done. ;-)

Alternate instructions -- remove bottle cap, throw bottle cap away, drink contents of bottle. ;-)

who was it asked "what can happen to cheese that hasn't already happened?" here's his answer.

wv = tackpla: the sound made when dislodging a cheese-stuffed olive from the back of one's throat.

Jennifer Smith said...

It has apparently escaped your notice that olives have other uses than to garnish your martini.

Bah. Peon.

Southern Quebec said...

If you put those olives (with the cheese *shudder*)in a martini I think Ian Fleming would be spinning.

I don't know who said it, but the quote(paraphrased) is "Good cheese should smell like the feet of the Gods" Blue cheese qualifies.

Balbulican said...

I love olives, and I love blue cheese, but not all olives (of which there are a multitude) work with all blue cheeses (ditto).

I missed the part where someone suggests putting it in a drink, however. What heathen proposed that?

LuLu said...

That would be the head heathen, Balby.

sooey said...

I have to disagree with martinis.

theo said...

Mmmm... Olives stuffed. I’ve never done the blue cheese one but I suspect I’d like it. Another stuffed olive I quite enjoy is anchovy stuffed large green olives. Food of the Gods for me, for a lot of my friends, further proof that I am insane. One of these taste treats you will either adore or despise, no in-between. :)
As for putting in a martini, probably not. Pickled asparagus however...

Námo Mandos said...

I'm sorry. Just as there are things that are objectively funny, there are things that are objectively tasty. As judged by me.

I think one must distinguish between things eaten WITH a drink and things eaten IN a drink.

I personally think popcorn and single malt scotch go together marvellously well. But you don't put the popcorn IN the scotch. Shudder.
