    Default CostCo Valdeon

    $10.95/lb. From the dates on it, it looks like they just got it.
    Ripe Cow + Goat milk cheese wrapped in sycamore leaves. Ask for it at
    a store near you.

    This version is made with both goat and cow's milk, but sometimes I've
    found it made with only cow's milk.

    Wedges were .77 to 1.1 lbs. So I grabbed the .77. On some of the
    wedges the leaves didn't cut so well so they got kind of crumpled
    inside the inner-wrap but my little 3/4lb'er was perfect.

    Yeah. 3/4 is a manageable size for a small family. Maybe I've been
    lucky or just don't know better but I've never had a bleu I didn't
    like. Even as a kid in the 60's I'd order it on my salad on Saturday
    nights when my dad took us out to a steakhouse. It was never in our
    fridge so it was a real treat for me.

    Oh, so now you're calling me a pig? :-)

    Blue cheese keeps well if wrapped properly. As long as it wasn't on
    it's last legs when I bought it, I can make it last a month or more
    depending on the variety (the harder the better, of course).

    I didn't like it until I was about 21 or 22. I had always shunned it
    since a kid remembering my mom eat that **** - and the smell <shiver>.

    Then one morning at brunch at Il Fornaio (San Francisco) I was served
    a slice of fried polenta with creamy gorgonzola on top. Eww - I
    started to eat around it and decided, "Oh, What the hell"... and dug
    into the cheesy part.

    Ever since then my Pre-Cheese days are just a foggy and fading memory.

    When it comes to cheese I'm a pig too.

    I've had good luck with it too.

    I don't remember the first time I had it but it was early.

    I wish you better luck than I had. Our Costco did not carry the
    Valdeon, nor did they have bok choy.
