I eat too much cheese. I’m at “I know what day of the week my local deli gets its cheese delivery” levels of cheese consumption. But when I really want to treat myself I’ll make a trip to an actual cheese shop and select a hunk of some specialty cheese. I’m not the most adventurous cheese fan, but I still like browsing around cheese shops, discovering the smell of new varieties and trying to imagine who some of the more pungent cheeses could possibly be for. Like curiosity shops, cheese shops are full of unforgettable and unexpected treasures just waiting to be discovered (and both can smell kind of musty)! Now we want to hear about your favorite cheese shops, and unique flavors you’ve discovered there!Alexander Maasch/Public Domain)
