Inspired by @Wight Flight's suggestion in the chocolate thread, here's a thread to discuss your choice of cheese at the festive season. No cheese too outlandish - will @Option5 be having Norwegian brown fudge cheese, will @The Generation Game be forced to consume some post-communist cheese-flavoured plastic in the interests of international harmony, is @The XYY Man partial to a bit of coal cheddar and what Swiss cheeses would @swiss_democracy_for_all nominate?

Let the cheese course commence!

Soft cheese - Vacherin / Mont D'Or. 

I voted for a blue veined (Stilton et al.) type cheese. Extra matured and very strong. However I am very partial to this every so often... Xmas is often a good excuse... Black Bomber..

Sorry i misheard what I'd been told. Wensleydale's from Hawes.

This is the local delicacy around here.

Mostly I will have something like Edam or Gouda, as a national delicacy is cheese a l'ecosse.

Any Norweigan Jarlsburg, per chance?

Yes, that's nice in a way that brunost isn't.

I like the incredibly smelly FRENCH cheeses that you can only find in France. I bought a bag load back on the Eurostar once. If I had farted, nobody would know, but then I also like durian ice cream.

because we all have working cocks?

even the wimmin such as spy have honorary balls for being DOSBODS members and eat proper cheese.

I wouldn't denigrate vegans' testicular configuration for not eating animal cheese, but I once had a vegan pizza because it was yellow-stickered down to 30p, and it was not very nice, so I assume a packet of vegan cheese isn't either. The ingredients seem to feature coconut quite heavily so I really can't see it at all.

Cheese is made from milk, has been since the dawn of time.  If the essential ingredient is to be removed, what exactly do they replace it with?  My guess is rubber.

But what about the food miles and CO2 emissions, these vegans (and other ethnics) who insist of using produce from half-way round the world in preference to indigenous produce are hardly environmentally friendly and therefore not very green.

If you define cheese as "something made from animal milk" then yes nothing else is authentically cheese.

Tofu is essentially the same process though and has been done by the Chynese since the 1500s so surely must count as proper efnik.

I've also thought that "quorn" must use a lot or energy in processing.

I know I am supposed to give AF about green air miles but I don't. When I am shopping I actually prefer something from foreign countries as it feels more exotic. I really like blueberries and I know I am supposed to be ashamed that they come from Peru and Chile but I eat them anyway. Just occasionally there are UK ones but I don't buy them. Feels funny if say I'm in Lidl in Spain and buy some Peru blueberries and thinking this is just same as I do at home.
