Oh right... the cheese. This is Pont L'Eveque, which is kind of like Limburger's gentler cousin with better manners. We wanted to get the smelliest cheese they had at Superquinn, and owing to Irish sensibilities this was the most powerful cheese we could come up with. It has er... shall we say, an odor. Un parfum. Ok, it's a bit smelly, but in nice way with a pleasant cheesy aesthetic. Not a sweaty Birkenstocks odor like Limburger. Anyway, the smell is the strongest thing about it, and it goes great with herby quince spread. The preserve is from Favols.
