    I'm a little concerned that Col hasn't had anything to say in this cheese thread. Col? You haven't fallen out of the Stannah on the way up the stairs again mate?!?

    one of the funniest restaurant experiences round there is Topo Gigio's on Brewer St. it's authentically stuck in the 70s, from the decor (copper pan sets anyone?) to the waiters' garb (bright red woollen tank top for you sir&#33 and the food (old school indeed, served with massive, thick Italian reds).

    very funny and highly recommended, just for the experience

    seconded. there's an amazing French sausage that you can get from really good french deli's that has pieces of roquefort in it. lovely!

    i'm also a bit partial to Pont L'Eveque (a lovely mellow older version of the young imposter Camembert) and another, harder cheese from Normandy that's washed with apple juice, the name of which i've forgotten - anyone?

    honestly, there's no need to brag about those celeb swinger parties. it's starting to sound like the inside Tracy Emin's tent in here.
    Nah, I think he means 'I've had Jools Holland and Mark Thomas in the back of my cab'. We all know Bill can't possibly afford his ghetto fabulous lifestyle from international DJing alone and I reckon he supplements his income by driving a minicab...

    Matt is the new Mil Millington, who once had the only column in The Guardian's Weekend magazine worth looking at. I hereby nominate Matt to handle the Brillo monthly mailout - since the theme is generally the same, all he has to do is write about his latest exposure to the real world view of collecting records through anecdotes of various conversations with his girlfriend. I think it would be perfect!

    But then again I thought calling Brillo Nerdfest would also be perfect... But now there's evidence that some of us nerds are beginning to freely admit to the fact!

    That sounds like the one. The older among you will also remember St. Moritz as an early venue in the new romantic days. I think the first Blitz was there (my memory's failing me as to exact details...)

    Matt Hero's conversation is very similar to those, I have frequently with my wife...  

    Hey, Rich Hero, can you tell me the name of the "fun fondue restaurant somewhere parallel to Berwick street" in London, please. My wife and I will be in Chelmsford and London over Christmas and that might be a good excuse to escape the in-laws.... But then, she always says "I don't like melted cheese on my food". Hmmm.  

    As for Neal's Yard. That is a good source for cheese in London. Being in America, I always feel like I have to save up for cheese and only allow myself a treat every now and then. It's so expensive here since all good cheeses are imports. Any American who disagrees, please educate me whether there is ANY edible cheese Made In USA.

    Oh, and without wanting to mix up this cheese thread with the Sausage thread a few weeks ago: There is a good article called "In search of the good" in this weeks's Economist.
    It's not available for free on the web, unfortunately, so you might want to pick up a copy at your news agent.

    You just said that cos you've got a posh girlfriend, Jon!

    Somerfield cheddar on toast with cracked pepper and chilli dipping sauce on top, with just a hint of HP blended in!

    Wonder what kind of cheese this kid called Miles likes...


    oh, and Jon, does that cheese preference come in boxes of seven variations? Maybe you should ask your soul brother...!

    I have to say Manchego, slightly melted with a little quince paste is my fave cheese experience...

    I'm off to the deli now

    How can you talk cheese when there is important news from the sausage world?!

    "Powters Celebrated Newmarket Sausage was recently voted 'Britain's Best Sausage' at the industry awards held at London's Park Lane Hotel.

    Managing Director Grant Powter collected the award from Commonwealth swimming gold medalist Sharon Davies at a glittering dinner attended by top industry and retail personalities. After the awards Grant commented:

    'Winning a major national award endorses what our customers already recognise as our hallmark: no compromise on quality. I am doubly proud because these sausages came from normal daily production batches made by our dedicated team every day of the week, every week of the year. It is also a worthy accolade to the skill of the previous three generations of my family.' "

    Just don't ask for the ingredients as they are
