"Yancy" brand cheese are available here in VA, & I do enjoy the hot-pepper types - but they're definitely not a good representation of cheese in general, as they're a processed product.

If you like the "Yancy" cheeses (which I do), you should definitely start trying other cheeses of the same frame - mature cheddars, Spanish sheep milk cheeses, etc.

If you like Munster, you must try the real thing, French Munster. There is no comparison. This may be my favorite cheese.

Roquefort isn't similar to blue cheese -- it is blue cheese. There are many varieties from many different places. I'd suggest trying some Maytag blue from Iowa (which I think is some of the best) or some from Denmark, as the latter is creamier and less pungent.



I was in London 2 weeks ago and went to Neil's Yard Dairy to get some cheddar but they were closed for a bank holiday! And I couldn't go back the next day!


I love so many cheeses ... I am sort of a cheese freak .... but generally like the well aged ones better, like aged gouda and Vella jack.

I generally buy small amounts of artisanal cheeses, but always have some greyere, manchego and jarlsberg in the fridge. And kraft singles.

I don't go at all for flavored/herbed/smoked cheese. I like the flavor of the cheese, not the additives. Exception being Boursin or something like that.

I love cheese. I think Longhorn Colby or Muenster are my favorites.

I'm scared to try Bleu Cheese though.

Once I tried Port Salaut cheese and fell in LOVE..but I haven't been able to find it since.

jenneyema - you mentioned aged gouda - have you tried a four or five-year aged gouda? It's just so wonderful - I love the "crystals" in it and a little goes a loooong way!

Yes, I have had a 4 year old gouda. And I also love that texture with the crunchy crystals.

I love doing taste tests at the cheese store comparing young cheeses to 1/2/3 + year old ones. I could eat my whole lunch that way. Of course I always buy a lot so they are patient with me.

I also love cheese. I try to experiment with them as much as possible.
I especially love smoked cheeses, like smoked gouda and smoked mozzerrella. I like brie, I like provolone, I like swiss, I like chedder (not too sharp, though). Heck, I even tried limberger, once!

Anything sold by the DiBruno brothers is just fine, by me.
