I just bought some stilton at Wine de Vine. Good quality as ever, but $4 an ounce instead of the $3 it was previously. Apparently GST has gone up.....

Are you saying that they're gouging?

We love Pinochio's, but wish they had a little better selection on their cheese antipasto dish. We usually ask for a small dish of honey to accompany the cheeses.

Merely remarking that the price has gone up by 1/3.

You mentioned on here the other day that you liked Stilton so I told 'em the they might as well jack up the prices as you would probably be coming by. wink

Ah, there's the answer as most of the other cheeses are the same price as before THE EMBARGO...

Apparently not. They told me that the embargo still exists for certain cheeses, though they were reluctant to tell me which. They did suggest this was another reason for stilton to have gone up, but as it isn't embargoed and they have been able to import it I didn't quite see that logic..... I'm afraid Simon's earlier comment may apply.

On the cheese itself, the French will have you believe that Roquefort is the King of Cheeses. IMO a good Stilton shows Roquefort as unbalanced and very salty.
