  1. Taleggio..a beautiful cheese, but ohhh it makes your kitchen stink! No one seems to mind when they eat it, the flavour is yummy….but you need to close off the kitchen and open windows and doors….smelly wet socks come to mind!

    1. I love the cheese and we can now get it locally which is fantastic – but it does have a rather noticeable smell 🙂
