I love a good blue. Thanks for the tip; still using President's Reserve oil, and that was the last food tip I think I got from you.

It's on the dryish side for a blue.

It's on the dryish side for a blue.That's OK, I am always looking for something different to thrill these old and dying taste buds.

When I was in college, I worked summers on a music festival tent maintained by a colorful, crusty old guy named Skip. He kept blue cheese and Saltines at the local bar, for after work drinks.

I'm not being biased , well, yes I probably am, but Danish Blue..??? The poor man's stilton, or not, but horrible...put it against a Stilton or Roquefort or Gorgonzola and the difference is such that I wonder why they can keep on selling the stuff......Like why do people keep buying powder Parmesan, Parmigiano whatever in little tubs when it smells like puke and the real thing is so extraordinarily wonderful and about the same price....beats me.

I realize I'll be called a barbarian (& the shoe may fit...), but I have this policy that when food goes rotten, it gets tossed in the compost. Why on earth would anyone spend perfectly good money on something that's already gone bad?

Disgusting stuff.

Just about all food has 'gone bad' if it is to have any flavour....hares partridges, even rabbits and beef taste of almost nothing if killed and eaten immediately. a good piece of beef should have been killed bled and hung for at least three weeks or it tastes of Mc blandburger and idiots need the mustard ketchup sauce salt to get anything like savour. there are exceptions of course, but eat a fresh button mushroom, or eat a button mushroom thats a bit dry and hung around in the bottom of the fridge a few days...totally different.. eat processed cheese or a piece of cheddar type that has been cured for six months...

Obviously there are instances where I won't eat 'old' chicken and some fish is always better off the hook and into the pan or not even cooked at all la sashimi, but generally if you want to avoid any chance of your taste buds being stimulated by anything other than mono sodium glutamate let your food rot a bit.

One has to note that alcohol is sugar that has "gone bad"

Almost all food has gone bad by the time it gets past your soft palate..... Almost all...

And don't stop at the palate! There is additional processing further downstream!

Jesus wept! This post has me longing for Stilton and an inoffensive glass of port...the official dessert of old wooden boats...

I'm currently enjoying some Shropshire Blue, nothing to do with Shropshire apparently but a good cheese for all that with a nice mild mould

and some craft dairy Wensleydale and a smoked Cheddar.:D
