‘Favorite cheeses’

‘I am addicted to really smelly cheeses! My favourites are Pont l’Eveque, Munster and Roquefort. Anybody else got any cheeses that they can’t get enough of that they wanna share?’

I love the three Italian cheeses. Asiago, Parm, and Romano. After that is would be a good cheddar, even smoked cheddar. That's about it for me. I don't like the cheese to be so strong that it covers up the main flavor of the dish.

But my biggest cheese sin is when I first buy a piece of any of the Italian cheeses, I always have to have a small chunk. And feeling that the first chunk may have been exposed to air to long, I better take another taste. Funny, that tasted just like the first bite. I better try again. Maybe I will use a knife instead of just breaking off a piece. Well the knife didn't make any difference. I need to break a piece from the other end. That should have the taste I am looking for. Yea! The taste I was looking for. I need to take another one just to make sure it was not a fluke.

What happen to my piece of cheese I got at the deli? More then half is already gone. Now I am going to need an overdose of Colace.

Trader Joes used to have this cheese I really liked. It was a round of stilton sandwiched by two rounds of sharp English cheddar and cut into wedges for sale.
If you love something, set it free. If it doesn't come back, HUNT IT DOWN AND KILL IT!

Fontina. Iberico. Jarlsberg. Most any cheese offered by Meadow Stone Farm, a vendor who sells at a Farmers' Market we go to. Gouda, both regular and smoked. Muenster (which I do not find to be stinky). In fact, most any cheese that isn't stinky! You are welcome to ALL of my Roquefort, but you'll have to fight off Himself to get to it!

My favorite blue is Papillon Black Label roquefort, but I don't think I have tried a blue I haven't liked. Gruyere ranks up there. Double and triple cremes are great on a cheese plate. Parm, asagio, peccorino, mozzarella, burata, ricotta and ricotta salata from the boot! Too many others from various countries to list!
