Day 641 : Looking for some stink in your life?

Look no further than the Cato Corner Farm cheese stand at the Union Square Greenmarket today.

Why may you ask should I head over to Cato Corner Farm for a great stinky cheese?

Because they have on offer James Brown Blue -- only available at certain times of year, this is by far the most stinky blue cheese I have had that has been crafted on American soil, rivaling the pucker and fantastic stink of say the greatest of the great stinkers -- Cabrales. Unlike Cabrales that has some moments of ivory amongst the blue veining, James Brown Blue is all blue and somewhat dark beige on the interior. Scents of intense barnyard and farmsteady-ness waft through your nostrils before tasting this cheese. At first taste it is quite briny, spicy, and stinky with the promised barnyardy and farmsteady-ness you pick up on in scent. It hits you right at the back of your throat in the sort of way that will awaken all of your senses.

If you're looking for an intense but fabulous blue -- head over to Cato Corner and grab a bit of this cheese. A little bit goes a long way but boy is it a unique cheese that is worth trying out.
