    My bad. I must keep seeing Old Croc and reaching past it in the store. I've been trying Welsh, Irish, and Scottish cheddars lately and enjoying them greatly!

And I've seen friends fill their smokers with good Tillamook (the largest and oldest of local cheese operations) sharp cheddar. I like the flavor a lot.
    They'll smoke anything in Oz. Way back when I knew the love of cheeses King Island Smoked Cheddar was a favorite.
    We don't know how lucky we are....

    The definition of stupid has got to be the belief that more guns will negate the bloodshed done with guns.

    I'd forgotten about that one! Now there's a brand that's probably available overseas and certainly worth trying - King Island. Great cheeses!

    Well... I've got to hit the cheesemongers soon anyway, as I'm planning on inventing a pizza my sweetie can swallow. The crust will be cauliflower, as she doesn't really like wheat. The cheese will be goat or sheep, as she can't digest cow's milk well. So I'll also keep any eye open for something interesting from Oz or New Zealand.

    If you are doing pizza use real Australian Mozzarella cheese http://shawriverbuffalo.com/our-range/.
    The owner Roger is also a passionate fisherman , and owns and sponsors whale boats and old ships boats.
    For sheeps milk try Aussie Island Pure , Meredith Dairy , or Grandvewe Cheeses.
    But I'd go for Shaw River .

    Might be worth trying spelt flour for the base, and for bread and etc. my wife doesn't have a gluten intolerance/allergy, but does react badly to modern wheat. She's fine with spelt flour.

    I actually grew spelt for a few years.
    It is an ancient grain , quite different to wheat , and good for humans and stock.
    I would certainly do some research David , or just , as Phil suggests , give it a try.
    I don't know how it will go on Pizza , it has different properties to wheat , but yep , give it a try.

    Sadly, my closest cheesemonger did not have anything from Oz in stock. Nor from NZ. She said they often do, and almost always have some Kiwi bleu cheese in the cooler... just not y'day. <sigh> I'll try another. Did find a tasty Scottish arpea de brebis for the pizza. Now to ferret out some sheepsmilk mozzarella.

    Also found a variety of sharp cheddar I hadn't tried before. Aged 7 years, from Novak in Wisconsin. Looking forward to both.

    We had a cheese with lunch yesterday that had pieces of cranberry through it. Delicious! Had family visiting so the whole lot was devoured. Wife doesn't remember what brand it was, but reckons she can find it again when she goes grocery shopping in a couple of weeks. Something to look forward to. JayInOz
