Now I’ve done a post on arty cheese before (really talking about cheesy-art record covers) but this is the real deal. I came across this in the local Woollies. It comes as part of the “Dutch Masters” series along with the Rembrandt and several others that weren’t in the store but are listed in the cheesemaker’s website. In the shop there was also the Mondrian cheese in the Dutch Classics range but all I bought was the Vincent. It’s ok – has a bit of a urine taste to it strangely. I think it has been around for a little while (doing a quick web search) but they have changed the packaging to make it more vincent-ey with the backdrop of the sunflowers. It certainly was eye-catching on the shelf.
