I am the only person I know who is willing to sacrifice a long weekend for cheese. I'm building a website for a very small fee for Essex Street Cheese Co. out of NYC simply to get some of their Comte. There are only 60,000 wheels of Comte aging in the caves at Marcel Petite Fort St. Antoine - a cave fort built during the 1800's in the Jura Mountains near the French-Swiss border. Essex's wheels are hand selected and are aged between 13-18 weeks. The Comte is made from the milk of Montbeliard cows and it's been prepared in the same manner for over 1000 years. This is the holy grail of cheeses. It's described as having the texture of silk. I'm going to have a party when I get my piece. I'm obsessed.
