Whats for Dinner Tonight?


(Jane Jones) #181

If there’s nothing wrong with it as far as you’re concerned then fine. Tim did refer to a “lump of rubbery French supermarket cheddar” which implied that he did not find it to his taste. Personally I find there are very few supermarket cheeses I think worth bothering with if alternative sources are available.

Auchan sell a very nice crumbly extra mature cheddar as well at the traitor counter. They also sell that very strange orange cheddar that I’ve seen sold in slices in various supermarkets which must be what the French think cheddar is sadly. A good cheddar is as good as any French cheese in my opinion.

What always makes me smile is the enormous quantity of emmental râpé sold in all supermarkets. Seems to be very popular here. Most bizarre.

Possibly an attempt at ‘flavour’ Mandy ! :grin:

I’ve often got a bag of emmental râpé in the fridge (and always some in the freezer). It’s a very useful last-minute addition to so many dishes… :relaxed:

OH likes cantal au lait cru… young or old…

and we both enjoy doing a cheese-tasting before buying something that looks interesting and/or is on special offer :relaxed:


(Mandy Davies) #185

I once used it in a cheese sauce and it didn’t taste of cheese at all. I guess it’s better for other things. I tend to use gruyere or cantal entre-deux now. If I can find a good cheddar though I will use it in preference to any cheese for a cheese sauce.

Cheese sauce varies … I add a little mustard powder or parmesan if the available cheese isn’t very strong… and even a spoonful of Saint Agur Creme… just a dollop of that transforms so many things… miam miam.

Chicken casserole (slowcooker since 9am)… phew, after a long, hard day… it’s wonderful to just take the lid off and tuck in… :relaxed:


(Mandy Davies) #192

Beef stew tonight and tomorrow.


(Bill Morgan) #193

Thats how we do those things, on the ‘flat top’ stove Mandy, enough for a few more meals in the freezer!
