>> Cheese on Tour
And there I was thinking I’d already exhausted all the web’s best cheese related sites! The homepage proudly proclaims
Congratulations! – You’ve made it to the Web’s number one site for pictures of cheese in famous places.
so it’s fair to say they’re not operating in a fiercely competitive field, but they certainly live up to their claim, with a fabulous selection of photos of cheese in exotic locations (From Thailand to the grid at Le Mans). They also supply an impressive Cheese factoids section:
In 1948 an Edam cheese washed up on the beach at Dover, was blown up with a controlled explosion by the Royal Fusiliers. Cheese rationing during the war caused everybody to forget what Edam looked like and they mistook it for an unexploded WWII mine.
The incomplete cut of the curved cheese knife, coupled with a deft twist of the wrist allows a diner to surreptitiously acquire up to 60g bonus cheese per sitting.
and a highly addictive Cheese Top Trumps game.
