Important Cheese Updates

Cheese news 1: A few weeks ago, ggreig sent me an email with instructions to watch out for a MYSTERY CHEESE PARCEL in the near future. It turned out to be this:


Terrible photo, but you get the idea. It is smoked cheddar with charcoal! A big hit with me; I love anything smoked (including smoked vodka, despite the unease engendered by anything smoked reminding me slightly of cheese), and this has a rich and intense smokiness.

Also an inedible and almost invisible rind of black wax, which I discovered quite late in the game.

Cheese news 2: I stayed with friends at the weekend, and was taught to make gougères. From now on, I plan to make them at every opportunity.


I saw that you stated the cheese had a black rind, but why is the customary color of the cheese itself? Black as well (presumably as a result of the addition of the charcoal)?
To make it look like coal, I think! It's a bit weird on first look, but it is tasty :)
