With all the cooks around here and obviously lots of us enjoy eating (meaning we don't eat just because we need to fuel our bodies) I figured a cheese thread was needed.

Some of my favorites, but I love all cheese.

Morbier- very strong flavor

I think i know what that is. I love feta, gouda, panel, and sharp cheddar the best. But feta is number one. Gorgonzola is good too.

Feta, gorgonzola, Havarti, Brie & Camembert both.  Humboldt Fog from California is really good.  

And I love epoisse, which is just about as bleu as bleu cheese can get, to the point of being runny.  People either love it or hate it.  

I love just about all cheese save for Swiss, which I can easily do without.  

I will also pass on casu marzu.  The line must be drawn somewhere, and I choose to draw it at the eating of live maggots.

You and I seem to like and dislike the very same cheeses. I think Havarti is alltime fave and then cheddar and gouda.

There's an unpasteurised Brie, Brie De Meaux, God it's sensational, really strong.

Some great Irish farmhouse cheeses out there.

Bluebell & Saint Tola goats cheese are fantastic.

Gubbeen and it's smoked counterpart is also gorgeous.

Cashel Blue is fab, quite strong.

Any of the classic English ones, Stilton, Red Leicester, Swaledale, Wensleydale and on and on. Double Gloucester is heaven.



Boo hiss to all of the processed crap.

MMMMMMMMMMMMMM..cheese....and a good relish, or a nice quince jam.

I definitely like the Danish cheeses. Havarti and Edam are tops for me.

Even people I know who don't much care for cheese say they like Havarti.  It took a lot to get my husband to try it, as he's very suspicious of any cheese that isn't cheddar or mozzarella, but he LOVED it.

I love so many but the first thing that came to mind is, extra sharp provolone. It brings back great memories of Italian family get together's of my youth.
