Now That's What I Call A Cheese Cake!

In September we attended the wedding of our nephew in London. He was the son of Vince's sister. Four of Vince's five brothers also attended. We stayed in a very nice hotel in Guildford for two nights and enjoyed our time together on what was a momentous occasion. There was a civil ceremony in a lovely ancient manor house. Some months previously, Clandon House, the original choice for the reception, had burnt down. After the ceremony, a Catholic priest and a Jewish rabbi combined to help blessings on the young couple. We were treated to a lavish meal but one of the highlights was the selection of cheeses. I've seen a few cheese cakes in my time but never one quite like this. Of course it isn't a cheesecake in the usual sense of the word.

cheese cake
Funny that you should call this a cheese cake. New York calls itself the capital of cheese cakes but, of course, the best cakes come from Austria and Germany. A cheese cake is sweet and not made with cheese but with Quark which is a kind of cottage cheese.

The cheesecake I'm used to are much more like the photo you've supplied. The way they had arranged these cheeses made it look like a several tiered cake.

They had a wedding cake as well. And the desserts were to die for! I must post about them one day. Three tall glasses each with a different filling. Lemon posset seems to be the 'in' pudding. I'd never heard of it then came across it several times in the course of a month or two.

@JudyEv 'Posset'? I've only read about that, never eaten it.

@jaboUK It seems to be just cream, sugar and lemon juice. No wonder it's so yummy. I've put my order in with Vince to make me some - after he's made me apple roses!

I've no idea what a round of cheese like that bottom one would cost. A small fortune I would think.

@JudyEv I am thinking in smaller terms like for Christmas entertainment. I imagine it would be several hundred dollars depending what type of cheese it is.

@BelleStarr Cheese seems quite pricey just for a part of a round but for Christmas and as something special, it is certainly eye-catching.

There is such a lot in the presentation of things isn't there? This looks too good to cut into I think.

It's not really a cake but it looks like a wedding cake and is made of cheese so that is why I've called it a cheese cake.

@JudyEv I was thinking it's a huge amount of cheese actually, was it all eaten during the party?

Now, that is something I have never heard of before. I guess, that family loves cheese cake.

There were a hundred or so guests at the wedding so I guess they ate quite a bit of the cheese.

I like brie and camambert. Not so keen on strong cheeses.

What a brilliant idea to display the cheeses like that. It looked mighty fine. I love cheese and I like cheese cake sometimes although it is quite cloying to the palate.

The camembert was lovely but I'm not a big fan of the stronger type cheeses.

What a shame that you can't eat too much dairy - but there are lots of other yummy foods I guess.
