Cristobal Huet on Cheese
Because we couldn't let the regular season end without asking the Caps' new(ish) French goalie about cheese....I'm taking journalistic license here by moving the quotes around chronologically to make this into a sensible first-person cheese tale.
"Cheese is definitely big for us. Before dessert we have some cheese, on big nights, not every day. I like cheese, but I'm not gonna run around the city to find my cheese.
"Some are pretty tough to find here, so I don't know if you're going to know about it. We have a lot of goat cheese, different goat cheese. Reblochon, it's from where I am [near Grenoble, in RhÃ´ne-Alpes]. My wife is from Switzerland and she's big on Gruyere, but like the aged one. It's very salty, it's nice. We have Comte, Bleu. It's like the one with the blue inside, like Gorgonzola, we call it Bleu at home. [Possibly Bleu de Bresse?]
"What else do we have? There's some nasty ones, but I'm not that big on big, smelly cheese. There's some families, when the cheese are passed away, they mix it up all together and leave it there for a week and then they eat it. It smells, oh. Good luck with that."
