Quick! I Need a Truckload of Onions!

Foodie nightmares commence:
About 27 tonnes of caramelised brown goat cheese - a delicacy known as Brunost - caught light as it was being driven through the Brattli Tunnel at Tysfjord, northern Norway, last week.

The fire raged for five days and smouldering toxic gases were slowing the recovery operation, officials said.

Had some of that the other day. Tasted like fudge.

Oddly enough, exactly the same thing happened with my fondue kit too.

Shirley you can find an appropriate 'Rarebit Fiend' image to accompany this story.

Just please reassure me there is no Gjetost shortage! Oh wait, Brunost is another word for Gjetost. This must truly be a sad day in Norway.

I'm a quarter Swiss- we can eat fondue non-ironically.
