    Default The Dairy, The Myth, The Legend: Cheese

    I hereby declare this the official cheese thread of the Chef's Chateau.

    Cheese is something I've an obsession with. I remember I was watching Food Network and someone mentioned using this stuff called Parmigiano Reggiano. So on our next outing to Central Market (the greatest grocery store of all time) I insisted we grab a slab of it. So we did. I was in love.

    After that, we started buying more and more exotic cheeses, eventually asking one of the food guys which he liked and he introduced me to what is, in my opinion, the greatest damned cheese in the world. Manchego. It's a sheep's milk cheese from Spain from the region in which Don Quixote lived (La Mancha) and it is delicious.

    It's a harder cheese, like Parmigiano, but has is much mellower. It's just about the best cheese in the world. I find the curado variant the best (basically the cheese that's been aged six months). It is a great multipurpose cheese. You can grate it over just about anything, but at the same time you can eat it with some good pears (I love pears and cheese) or crackers, if you're into crackers. Of course, I find it best served by its lonesome with a good red Spanish wine.


    So basically, ITT we discuss cheese, the best food ever.

    I LOOOOVE Cheese, but I'm lactose intolerant so I can't have too much of it...

    My choir director from HS was Italian and one of the perks of being choir mistress is that he always brought in food for us to munch on and he always brought in cheese. There was this... goat cheese that was absolutely pungent and delicious and made crackers wonderful

    I have to say, I tried some Havarti and smoked Gouda the other day and I really enjoyed them. Havarti had an interesting twang to it and the Gouda was just awesome.

    CHEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSE!!!!! YESYESYESOMGOMG-
    K, I'm done.

    Anyways, I like cheese. Can't go wrong with it (unless it's white cheddar *pukes*). Especially the good kinds, like provolone, Gouda, sharp cheddar, Old-fashioned American, the whole cheesilada.

    Smoked cheese is just incredible, it doesn't matter where it's from.

    I like going to fancy banquets and eating cheese and caviar xD

    I like blue cheese. I can make a mean blue cheese Jack Daniels sauce.
    That's nice.

    I looooooove cheese.

    I think my favorite is mozzarella; it gets used in so many Italian dishes, which are, like, my life. I also like pepper jack. :3

    Mmm, cheese. I love blue cheese, smoked Gouda, goat cheese (goat cheese is especially amazing when it's fried <3) and pretty much any kind of cheese you'd find in a gourmet shop. Not a fan of regular cheeses, although I do love Mexican food with Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese.

    Oof.

    We sometimes find and, of course, buy small wheels of apple wood smoked Gouda. Take Gouda and give it a delicious smoky flavor and it just melts in your mouth. Mom has to hide it to keep me from getting to it in the fridge and devouring it.

    My fav cheese type is Provolone. Love love love. Have some upstairs along with colby-jack and mozerella. My prob is that I love cheese so much that I can eat it right out of the pack. >< Cheese isn't really friendly with me, though....and yet I love it and milk.

    Another cheese I absolutely love is ricotta.

    I don't particularly like it by itself, but putting in pasta dishes and cooking it makes it amazing.

    I love the 5 year old Gouda I bought at Wegmans. It smells kinda like my shoes but tastes absolutely delicious. I cut off little pieces, let them warm up to room temperature and then snack on them.

    I'm not a huge fan of cheese by itself... but whenever I make something with cheese it's always "ADD ALL THE CHEESE" and I go crazy because it's yummy. The only cheese I really don't like is parmesan. It annoys me to no end for some reason. I even like blue cheese in small doses (and if it doesn't look blue).
