I am not a cheese expert, I usually like the cheaper cheeses. Many of these farmstead cheeses smell (and taste?) lke an old farm. I've tried to acquire the taste but can't. The Cobb Hill ascutney cheese is perfect for me (not to stinky, great nutty taste) but much better than the Cabot and Helluva good cheeses.

I wish I prefered cheap wine like I prefer cheap cheese.

I'm definitely not a cheese expert either, but I've been learning more and more (read a whole book on cheese a few months ago!)...I try to be open and at least give everything a try - but no matter what, Blue Cheese ain't cuttin' it for me!!!

But I've definitely learned that a good honey (VT local!!) or a good jam (strawberry, raspberry or cider) paired with a good cheese is an amazing combo...

I do go Cabot every morning for breakfast - the habanero cheddar in my eggs. I have to open the window or my mom chokes on the pepper fumes.

I'm about 2/3 of the way through my wine book...perhaps you can steer me towards some of your, ahem, cough, not too cheap favorites???!!!

Grade B/dark amber maple syrup. (drool, drool)

Salsa from the Gut (made in Rutland) - fave flavor: Smoked Jalapeño, medium or hot

Profoun Salsa (made in Vergennes) - fave flavor: Sweet 'n Sassy

What's delicious salsa without Green Mountain Gringo Chips? I'm ready to snack!

Olivia's Croutons (from VT ingredients including locally-grown wheat -- soon to be growing their own! Made in New Haven) fave flavor: too delicious to choose. This wonderful family company is featured in a story I wrote for the Rutland Herald's HER Magazine due out next month.

Kimchee by Sunja's Oriental Foods (made in Waterbury)

Snacks by TrueBlue Green Food (broken link) (made in Bethel) fave flavor: Ally's Almonds w/tamari & garlic. Mmmmmm!

Liz Lovely Cookies (organic, vegan, Fair Trade, made in the Mad River Valley) fave flavor: Oh, man! All indescribably delicious.

Ditto on creemees. We were just discussing at lunch time, that we (the staff) should go to three creeme stand in the area and check which one had the best maple creme.

Also, cheese, cheese and cheese.
