I do like cheese to be strong and preferably British but I bought some Cambazola from Iceland a few weeks ago.

It sat in the refrigerator, un-opened until tonight when I had some with biscuits and it nearly burned my mouth. Wow!

I love Gorgonzola and would have expected a French cheese to damp it down some,can't usually be bothered with French, but this is a lethal combination. I could only eat a little bit.

*puts on shopping list*
Where did you get it, Sharron?

Iceland, would you believe?

No, not the country!

I shall try to remember to buy some next time I'm in town :-D

I love it

Find Gorgonzola stronger tasting than cambazola .

I like strong cheeses but not keen on Camembert

I expect your Cambaloza would be delicious in a Cauliflower Cheese, Sharron :-D

Strange, I have always found Cambazola not to be particularly strong.....Maybe my taste buds are going :-(

I usually have Sainsburys' own, it's delish :-D

Maybe you need to leave it in the fridge for too long.

All cheeses are tasteless when refrigerated! Can't think what happened to your cambozola Sharron, I have always found it relatively mild. I have to hide anything in the nature of softer cheese in a cheese dish with a lid as otherwise OH tidies iit away into the fridge or even the freezer. Take out of the fridge some hours before you use it!
