National Moldy Cheese Day, Roadtrips R Us

Today October 9th is National Moldy Cheese Day. I happen to love both repulsive smelling cheese and the variety of items stuffed into a long roll. There are over 2,000 varieties of cheeses in the world. Here’s my pick of the top five stinkiest kinds of cheese in the world.

1) Epoisses: France – Across the pond, they make it raw and unpasteurized. It’s nutty, salty, creamy and yes very stinky. It was also a favorite of Napoleon’s.

2) Taleggio: Italy – This cheese has been around since the 10th Century. It’s really smelly when melted and goes great with fruit such as pears. Taleggio Cheese

3) Stinking Bishop: England – One of the oldest cheeses in the world dating back to the Cistercian Monks. It contains pasteurized Gloucestershire Cow’s Milk and is washed with Stinking Bishop Pear Juice.

4) Pont L’Eveque: France – This French delicacy dates back to the 13th Century. You want to get this cheese wrapped well unless you want everything in your refrigerator to taste like it. If you can’t handle this smell, get rid of the moist crust. Even though it is smelly, it is one of the tastiest.

5) Roquefort: France – One of the most sought-after cheeses in the world. Roquefort is made from unpasteurized milk and can be dangerous. Australia and New Zealand banned the import of this wonderful blue-veined cheese until recently.
