Always have liked cheese and crusty bread :wry smile:
Fickle/indecisive... same thing pretty much.
I meant that last month when you started a thread exactly like this one your favorite was crusty bread. This month it's baguette slices. Same cheese, different bread

Lol! Oh ok, baguettes are crusty too :P
And I only had 5 favourites to choose from, couldn't list them all remember.
Nice to know you pay attention :)

Ooh, cheese is a favorite in this house. It occupies far too much of our little refrigerator space. As a matter of fact, before the economy tanked, dh and I were seriously discussing opening a cheese shop. Not being businessmen, we were just at the point of researching how to proceed. Just L.O.V.E. cheese and we may still do something like that after retiring.

My *favorites* are hard to come by in the US, where I live.


- Comté, which is nutty like Gruyère, simply on good crackers, with good bread or as part of canapé


- Fourme d'Ambert - a blue cheese, with ripe cantaloupe. Pure heaven.


- Reblochon - in the spirit of Brie, but softer... great with potatoes


- Feta - nothing like the Feta that we buy when we're back in Turkey visiting family. You go to the deli case in grocery stores and they have an entire wall of just fetas. Delicious in the mornings with my
boğaça (a Turkish breakfast roll).

Those that are easily accessible that we always have on-hand:

- Greek Feta (found at Costco)
- Gruyère
- Caerphilly
- Roquefort
- Dolce Gorgonzola
- Fresh, fresh, fresh mozzarella
(buffalo or cow, as long as it's made the same day)
- Extra Sharp Cheddar - my current favorite is from Cedar Grove.
- The rest of the cheeses in the world.

Subtle differences.

Yip, I don't need to Google it but it's those subtle differences that made me say I'm indecisive and not fickle :p
But anyway we'll still just love the smart ass..lol!

Yes, there are, but they are also synonyms. At least here in America.

Mmmmmmm cheese. One of the most important food bandaids around and so amazing all on its own.

I am not a fan of bleu on its own, but in stuff...WOW. Otherwise, I'm hard pressed to name a cheese I didn't love. I prefer the soft cheeses with a good sesame cracker but the really old cheddars are amazing all on their own or with a slice of Granny smith apple.

No one has mentioned Imperial cheese yet. I figured GW would have had that in his list! MMMMMMMM! Now I have to go raid MY fridge too!

Thanks, Snip. I try to add a little humor where it's needed, but that wasn't one of those times
