I love cooking with cheese. I use all different kinds. The one that seems to make it into my dishes the most though seems to be Parmesano Regiano.

Gruyere, Mozz, Parmegiano Reggiano, cheddar, cream cheese are always in my fridge. Occasionally I splurge on Gorgonzola and Fontina.

When making scrambled eggs I sometimes thrown in bits of crumbled Feta cheese.

Other then that it's Sharp Cheddar or Mozzarella. I like to make grilled cheese sandwiches using both together with some bacon.

Gee, there are soooo manyyyy cheeses we love and regularly use...
For a start parmigiano or grana padano are almost everyday staple.
Then fresh mozzarella (buffalo one is the best!) for either munching just like that, on salad or in certain pasta dishes.
For appetizers, salads, something to be used unheated, provolone and pecorino are excellent.
For melting in risotto, pasta, casseroles, sauces, fondues etc. fontina, taleggio, gorgonzola, gouda, edam, provola, bel paese, emmenthar, jarlsberg, etc. though they are also delicious as they are (except gorgonzola!).
I also love grilling smoked scamorza, it is also good on pizza or frittata.
Also for just snacking or to be eaten with bread or crackers, I love robiola, stracchino, brie and camambert.
For desserts I very often use mascarpone and ricotta (ah, ricotta also for pasta filling and savoury tarts!!)...
These are just some examples of cheeses we enjoy... ah, in case you haven't realised yet, we are big cheeseheads!!

It's hard to pick a favorite, but for cooking, I'd have to say parmesan, mozzerella, cheddar, ricotta, cream cheese and Velveeta. I love blue cheese, feta, gouda, colby, etc.
Frankly, I've never met a cheese I didn't like. HB doesn't like Limburger...he can't get past the smell.

Quite timely....

...we just discovered fontina cheese as it was called for in an Italian mac and cheese recipe. However, I grated some on a tossed salad with black olives and slivered onions and it is super. Gouda, or a sharp chedar, with a macintosh or jonathan apple is great.
