Tim got a new coffee machine in the past couple of days. He loves it.

He got it from Big W for only $179….. against the recommended retail price! It came with two free stainless steel cups and saucers, a milk jug and coffee spoon with tamper, a DVD and a free offer to go to a coffee appreciation course.

Its been a while since I reviewed some cheeses here. I have had a few different cheeses including a very nice creamy blue while in New Zealand.
The first shown here, the Pecorino is actually a cheese I bought to cook with. It is a hard flaky cheese somewhat similar to Parmesan. It grated into nice flaky strips and melted beautifully into the white wine and garlic sauce I cooked the prawns in. I wouldn’t recommend eating it on crackers though it certainly is flavoursome.
There wasn’t much difference between the Cracker Barrel Extra Sharp and the Mainland Cheddar Masters series Extra Tasty cheese. Both were very classic tasty cheeses with a nice bite to them.
Oh the things I do for you my gentle readers!
Some more nice cheeses were reviewed recently – and at the request of a reader the King Island Dairy Roaring 40’s blue cheese was selected.
I was expecting the cheese to be a raging stinky blue cheese – from the name I guess. However I was pleasantly surprised. The smell wasn't bad at all and the taste was awesome – very nice – I had it in sandwiches with hot chips and chicken – very nice!
The Mersey Valley Sharp and Crumbly series have been favourites in this house and the sweet chilli did not disappoint with kids who don’t even like sweet chilli eating it and declaring it their favourite cheese ever.
A very pleasant cheese.
