    They're a summer item, should be back later in the year. They had bailey's irish cream ones for a while as well.

    It might work in a macaroni cheese as well. Don't forget to add the chopped onion.

    Could you freeze it and get it out when you need to make a sauce? Chances are you wouldn't have to defrost it as it would melt in the hot sauce.

    Haven't tried 'Le Pave' but since hearing about it I intend to, especially at that price. Brie is awesome stuff (especially if it comes from Tasmania or King Island), but way more expensive than this much vaunted 'Le Pave' regardless of what brand or where you buy it. I'm up for any cheese that isn't mouldy, certainly willing to give the Aldi stuff a go.

    You can stick the mouldy stuff like blue vein where the sun don't shine.

    Marinated goats cheese is my absolute fave, but at 40 bucks a kilo its strictly a treat, and I wouldn't want it any other way, the flavour is too powerful for a daily diet. Brie is subtle enough to eat every day, and sooo creamy.

    someone recommended trying it in the cheese thread. I got some at the royal show and it was nice. I think if you get good stuff, it's nice.

    There is good mould? Yeah I think I'll pass.
    More to the point, there is a cheese thread? :lol: I'll have to check it out, I am a big cheese kinda guy. I am a massive cheese fan.. and milk too, I will never suffer from Osteo, I have been drinking minimum 2l of milk daily for more than 50 years :D and I probably make a kilo of cheese last 3 days.

    Kinda difficult to be a big cheese guy who doesnt like mould, given pretty much every soft cheese has mould lol. Rules out brie, washed rind, obviously anything blue, parmesan and most other aged hard cheeses, ...

    I'm not a cheese expert but the blue cheese at Aldi is a bit too salty to be perfect.

    Yes, I'd had a lifelong aversion to the idea of mouldy cheese, but someone suggested giving it a go. I forget the brand, but it was nice. I've also been getting the blue cheese dressing at Subway, although whether that's got any cheese in it, I don't know. I like it, anyway. Give it a whirl, if you like other cheeses, you might also like it. I've also never been a big camembert/brie fan, but I got some really good ones at the royal show. I wouldn't pick it over strong cheddar or parmesan or swiss or others that I really like, but when it's nice, it's nice.
    EDIT: cheese thread
