As one who loves strong flavors, I don't know why I don't like ripend cheeses such as Brie and Camembert. But I really couldn't say which is my all-time favorite cheese. It really depends what I'm using it for. And I've been known to eat a half pound of cheese at one time, of course I was much younger then, and dearly loved a good colby. My cheese range has expanded so much from back then. I love Gruyere, sharp aged cheddars (white, not colored or tampered with), Colby, Ghouhda, Asiago, Parmesan, Feta, Cottage Cheese, Fontina, a strong and sweet Swiss, etc., etc.

How can I choose from such a wonderful variety? You ask the impossible.

Baby Swiss, mozzarella, and fresh cheese curds - the kind that squeak.

Hey miguzigoldfish, the most common french goat cheese is chevre, i quite like it, but the Welsh one is even nicer.

I love cheese, especially a good Cheddar, farmhouse Lancashire (I have a waxed bomb in the fridge), brie (I tend to by Cornish or Somerset rather than the French these days), I just love it all.

Pepper Jack
Monterey Jack
Buffalo Mozzerella (the really wet kind)
Bleu
Feta
Fontina
Havarti
Fresh Parmesan
Gruyere
Cheddar
Provolone
Munster
Swiss
Jarlsberg
Triple Cream Brie
Asiago
Romano

What I can't stand: the grocery store "cheese mixes".
My mother always buys "co-jack",
(colby & jack), but it's like polka-dot
cheese.
If you are going to mix cheeses, do a fromage fort, right, Otter?

Chevre is not really a type of goat cheese. "Chevre" means "goat" in French, so all goat cheeses are chevre. But it is often used as shorthand for a young, creamy and mild cheese.

Farmhouse cheddar is very yummy, I agree. I am particular to Neil's Yard.
