Smoked gouda, Havarti, muenster, sharp cheddar, pepper jack.

I also always have either Parmigiano Reggiano or Romano in the fridge.


I love others such as bleu, fresh mozzarella, swiss, and mild goat cheese, but the above are what I have on hand most often. Now I'm craving a good cheese. :-)

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Brie...one of my very favorites. Speaking of stinky cheese, I love Limburger in a jar (keeps the stinky in). My favorites for sliced sandwich cheeses are Havarti and Swiss. Trader Joe's has a yogurt cheese that is excellent. I won't eat goat cheese at all.

I love all kinds of cheeses. I bought a triple brie-like cheese, made in Quebec recently. It had maple syrup in the middle. It was delish. I also like local smoked blue cheese and local smoked gouda. I get to try lots of artisan cheeses from Quebec and Ontario cheese makers, including sheep's milk cheeses.


I also picked up a Quebec goat cheese that was firmer than the soft stuff at the grocery store, but not as firm as feta and not as salty, It crumbled nicely. I just ate it like that, no crackers. It was $23/kg. It was really nice--not too salty, not too soft. I only got to have that because we had extra left over in the kitchen (a 1-kg log) and weren't going to use it, so we all got a chunk of it. Pricey, but delish.


We have access to a lot of very good cheeses in this area from Quebec. Oka is one of my favorites--both the firm and soft varieties. And, the artisan cheeses are lovely.

It is super easy to make yogurt cheese. Just buy a whole milk yogurt, strain it overnight, and you have yogurt cheese.

Our local Colosse cheddar is probably my favorite cheese. At Thanksgiving and Christmas I treat myself to some of the old crumbly rat cheese. I buy mine at the farmers market, it is also available by mail.

I'm also a big fan of Stilton at Christmas.

Stilton Cheese - Welcome to the home of Stilton Cheese - Britain's historic blue cheese and Britain's favourite blue cheese.

Thanks CWS, but that wouldn't produce the Trader Joe's product of thinly sliced yogurt cheese for sandwiches. What you describe would be a Greek style yogurt.

I love so many different kinds of cheese. My favourites are probably Camembert and double or triple cream Brie. Cambozola is pretty darn good too. Oh, and stinky Danish cheeses that I have only seen in Denmark.
