Roaring Forties

Posted 2010.08.11 17.46 in Hobbies, Pointless Blather

Why does the yummiest stuff come from so far away?

I mean, I’m in Brampton, Canada – roughly 79 degrees west and 44 degrees north. King Island Dairy is roughly 143 degrees east, and 40 degrees south. In other words – the opposite side of the world. Like what’s that, 20,000 km away?

Yet they make some super  yummy blue cheese – Roaring Forties Blue – named for the winds which whip around the southern seas at 40 degrees lattitude, at speeds up to 100km/h.

I guess I should just be glad that I can even get my hands on it, here on the far side of the world. And it’s not even crazy-priced, too.

Anyways, blah blah blah blue cheese. Get some, try some, it’s the bomb.
