Mouldy Cheese Day

Mould is not usually a good thing, but in the case of cheese sometimes it’s a great thing. You can thank Penicillum roqueforti and Penicillum glaucum for the deep blue veins in some cheeses. According to boldsky, this pungent delicacy has some health benefits. There is wide range of mouldy dairy comestibles, such as Camembert, Gorgonzola, Maytag blue, Roquefort, Brie, and Stilton. The South African cheese industry has a long and prestigious history (thanks to French Huguenots who passed on their cheesy secrets). Try some local options such as Cremalat Gorgonzola, Fairview Blue Rock, Fairview Roydon Camembert and Swissland Brie. Grahamstown shop Fusion has a massive selection of stinky cheeses.
