Holy shit my life is about to get a whole lot better!

I’ve had casein and I’ve had morphine. I know which is more delicious.

In queso emergency pray to cheeses…
**casein ** (kā’sēn’, -sē-ĭn)
A white, tasteless, odorless protein precipitated from cow’s milk by rennin that is the basis of cheese and is used to make plastics, adhesives, paints, and foods.

Obviously all those different cheese tastes can’t come from the same source. Turns out to be pretty complicated how they get all the tastes - bacteria, sugars, mites, moulds, sweating. So that blessing for the cheesemakers…well earned.

If you try and take away my cheese ("…from my cold, dead hands") I will be forced to say, …

Who cut the cheese??


Cheese can’t be that great. Otherwise how would you explain this trenchant observation by G.K. Chesterton: “Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.”?

I’m trying to figure out how it works. A grilled cheese maker that grills the edges?

Looks to me like something that melts the rind on Parmesan.

Very tasty

Yes, pretty much, and as zoid points out, it’s a raclette machine.

The restaurant we go to in Switzerland has one of these running all night. If you order a raclette you are brought a bunch of accompaniments (little jacket spuds, charcuterie, cornichons etc). They then start scraping off the top layer of melty gooey delicious raclette and bringing it over to the table. For bigger parties they wheel a dedicated machine over to your table and you all have at it either until it’s gone, or until the first person explodes.

It is not a light meal.

A group of researchers actually spent time and (hopefully not too much) money on a study that concluded people (based on a survey) really like chocolate, cake and pizza.

I am stunned, and hope that legislation is passed soon to keep this from happening.

“Yet it has every quality which we require in exalted poetry.”

Here’s my favorite ode to cheese: Cheddar Cheese Jerusalem.

Way back in the day we got gubment cheese. Well to be honest I don’t recall if WE got it or people we knew got it.

But I do recall that the gubment cheese was some of the best damn cheese I ever had. I suspect it was good stuff to start with. Then it sat in a warehouse for Og knows how long. Then it got distributed to the po folks eventually.

Does the gubment still buy and hoard cheese and eventually give it to the masses?

I’ve fixed your link, QtM.


That is one of the funniest YouTube videos I’ve ever seen. I love a good parody.

I’m not sure I’d say it’s the best overall, but government cheese is certainly an excellent choice for grilled cheese sandwiches.

You’re making my mouth water.
