Cheese lovers fromagerie
This is the first time I've visited the Simon Johnson store in Pyrmont and for any cheese lovers I'm sure you'd love their cheese room along with all the other delicious quality products they stock. Today's visit was in search of some cheese for a friends dinner and with so many choices on offer I usually get overwhelmed but once I spotted the St Agur I remembered I wanted to try it again after sampling it at the March Into Merivale Launch Party. Another friend also brought along some St Agur but for some strange reason the one from Simon Johnson tasted better — perhaps it's the way it's stored that makes a difference. They had limited stocks of the very expensive spanish jamón for I think about $60 for 100 grams but today I opted for the poor man's jamon of pancetta at a more reasonable price.
