I've long thought that stinky chesses - especially the ones that smell distinctly like human body odor - are happy accidents (assuming you actually enjoy eating the stuff) resulting from human/milk contact, possibly now separated by many thousands of culture-generational refinements. According to Wikipedia, at least for Limburger this is literally true:
Quote:
Limburger is a cheese that originated during the 19th century in the historical Duchy of Limburg, which is now divided among modern-day Belgium, Germany, and Netherlands. The cheese is especially known for its pungent odor commonly compared to body odor.
"What might the reason for the stink-foot odor be?" wonders the inquiring mind.
Quote:
Once it reaches three months, the cheese produces its notorious smell because the bacterium used to ferment Limburger cheese and many other smear-ripened cheeses[2] is Brevibacterium linens, the same one found on human skin that is partially responsible for body odor and particularly foot odor.
Back to Paul's complaint about the local shortage of inter-toe-fermented cheeses:
Quote:
Unfortunately, Limburger is especially difficult to get hold of in these part.
According to the same Wikipiece:

"Herve cheese is a type of Limburger cheese still produced in the Land of Herve, in the territory of the old Duchy of Limburg. Herve is located near Liège, and the borders separating Belgium from the Netherlands and Germany. The "Pays de Herve" is a hilly area between the Vesdre and Meuse rivers."

Do they carry that at your local cheese shoppe?

Ur a-nus
