Simon Johnson: Fromagerie, Pyrmont (27 June 2009)

181 Harris Street, Pyrmont NSW 2009

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.

What's your all time favourite cheese?

yumm!!! I love cheese. After the simon Johnson sale a couple of weeks back, we went to the actual store and purchaed 3-4 different types of cheese and had it with the Jamon we got on sale, it was sooo good. I feel like cheese now.
