Lately i've been observing all these "charcuterie boards" and im kind of confused as to why every single one of you puts crackers on the side instead of freshly baked goods. Is this just some trend in the US?
Nothing better than a crisp baguette with a soft core to accompany my cheese.
Crackers are too salty and don't offer the complexity in taste and structure I deem "delicious".
Whole grain crackers aside, they're unhealty.
Change my mind.
Btw.: It's so damn easy to bake your own baguette. You even get to choose your prefered state of "burned" and the melting butter on top is something that let's me moan every time. Fuck crackers. :)
I realize this is a lost cause as it's impossible to describe a taste properly, but: I bought some camembert two days ago because I always believe I'll love fancy cheeses and I'm always disappointed. But how is camembert supposed to taste? I've heard it tastes nutty and fruity. But all I tasted was this weird fermented taste, like something rotten, like fruit that has gone bad or orange juice that has gone off with a hint of "regular" cheese as an after-taste. I always imagined brie or camembert tasting like "regular" yellow cheese but more intense with strong overtones of spices... So, is that what camembert tastes like and what kind of cheese should I try if I wanna try a cheese that is more like cheese but stronger and more intense flavour?
This post might have been a mistake as taste is too subjective, but if you can figure out what I mean, please contribute :)
Me and my partner are looking to visit Camembert and Brie this summer. Camembert was easy enough to mentally organise but Brie appears to encompass many towns. Where is best to go in brie which will fulfil our cheese needs/where precisely did brie originate in Brie?
