oat cracker...

with cheese and fruit compost...

I need some cheeses before I'm heading back to visit my family in Thailand this Wednesday. I'm not sure if I can find these cheeses there. They're my favorite cheeses, Brillat Savarin and Pierre Robert. They taste similar, but Brillat Savarin has a higher water content. Buttery, creamy and mild, theses cheeses are often served with bread and jam.
I do remember when I started to eat cheese, but I don't remember when I started to like it. As a Thai, cheese seems to be the worst food ever. It's the same way some people think about durian. Thanks to my boss, she introduced me all kind of cheeses while I was working with her. I like to eat these cheeses exactly the same way she taught me how to eat them.

- 1/3 cup all purpose flour

These cheeses are from France. They're made from cow's milk, very soft and rich as a triple cream style. We should check the groceries in BKK together.

I am a cheese addict too. Brillat Savarin and Pierre Robert are cheese I really love too.

Try this cheese, Langha La Tur. La Tur is an excellent Italian cheese made with cow's, sheep's and goat's milk. I guarantee you that you will love it if Brillat Savarin is your favorite. I had it with fig jam spread on wheat cracker.

Our family also loved it when we served spreaded on toasted wheat bread as part of breakfast...

BTW, you can get it at Whole Food for around $8

BTW, I never thought about baking own crackers for cheese at home until I saw your cracker recipe and other fixings.

Thip said...

Hi Pook,

I'll try the one you recommended. Here in BKK, I couldn't find any cheeses I like. :(
p.s. I have one more oat cracker recipe, but it's my boss. Let me know in case you want to try it.

I can't make it without my daily dose of European cheeses!! The crackers turned out perfect!

life without cheese is like a world with no sun!

you know, i've never made my own crackers before - i need to try that. any excuse to eat more cheese.

Thip said...

I need some cheeses now. :(

Vanillaorchid said...

Wanna taste this cheese and hope that we can find it in BKK ka. ^o^

pook & house said...

I totally agree with you Thip. Thailand isn't cheese country, hard to find good cheese, and no good cheese maker.

If you don't mind sending another cracker recipe, you can send it to

emailpookie@gmail.com Thank you ja.

Thip, a friend of mine in Bangkok mentioned that there is a cheese shop just opened in Ramkhamhaeng Soi 112, Mu Baan Samarkorn in Bangkok.

I think they are a cheese producer also... Murrah Dairy Farm in Chachongsao.

I don't know about it. I may have to ask Pook to check it out.

Thip said...

Thanks, House. I'll try to check it out.
