Can I just tell you how excited I am today! I stopped by a Scandinavian store in SLC and picked up some genuine Swedish Farmer Cheese (or, Hushållsost for the initiated). Yum! I haven't had that for so long now.

It's expensive though :( In Sweden you can get a 2lb (1kg) block for about $5. It is almost $16 here! Luckily they had 20% off everything, so I felt justified getting a piece ;)

What is SLC? I see that "hushållsost" means "household":


I'm going to have to try it - when I stayed w/my schoolmate in Switzerland, we used to get Gruyere from an actual dairy/merchant - I've never gotten a Gruyere that tasted that good in the USA, and I think I've exhausted every brand sold here...

Oh, I know just what you mean (I am myself a big fan of Swedish cheese, especially the 'herrgärdsost' - is that how you spell it?)! These unique finds of something from home are excellent when you live abroad. When I lived in England, it was Danish ryebread I was craving. Now I find that I miss proper English cheddar.

Now that's something you don't see written down very often :-)

(Sounds like the makings of a cartel, or at the very least a small aggregate network of cheese devotes...who'd gladly ship to one another.)

I've smuggled cheese between my toes before, so I volunteer to be the mule.

What's the margin on cheese?

A lot of you're moving it.

Don't know about the US but I brought Norwegian Synnove cheese (mmmmm, the goodness) over to Australia only to have the two blocks (vacum packed and unopened) chucked in a bin labled "Illegal"... Apparently I was lucky not to get a hefty fine, only putting on a thick Norwegian accent saved me.

My sister is coming to visit from the UK and her boyfriend says they can't bring me any Stilton cheese, in fact no food at all.

Not sure if I believe it though, as some other English people brought me some Marmite a few weeks ago (to Maui).
