    I wondered why this thread was growing so quickly. LOL I love cheese but have a weird thing where I get nauseous when I see commercials where the cheese is melted and being pulled. I like it melted but can't stand seeing it. LOL

    My kid turns up his nose at anything but mozzarella, monterey jack, and melted mild cheddar. I swear sometimes that he can't be mine.

    I met my first cheese hater when I was 20. I'll never forget it because I was shocked that there was such a thing possible. WHO, WHO could hate cheese?

    but homemade hummus is so quick and easy! and you can make loads of it at once. just get cans of chick peas, garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper and lemon juice and that's it. Oh, and a dash of cinnamon - the secret ingredient, according to my lebanese friend. and a bit of chili powder and cumin, if you want to give it a bit of a kick.
    I'm giving you the jealous stank eye over your damn gift bag. Cheddar's nuttier, butterier, cousin sounds AWESOME.

    I need to expand my cheese repertoire but not sure how to start. I did buy a gouda but haven't tried it yet. There is a lot to learn about cheese and it's a little intimidating.
    Gouda is lovely on its own or with grits or with just about anything. I used to nanny for a family who would "breakfast like a king, lunch like a queen and sup like a pauper" as the old saying goes and they'd often have cheese, fruit and bread for the supper meal.

    Anyone who has read the A Song of Ice And Fire book series (Game of Thrones) knows GRR Martin writes a lot of food porn and his feasts are full of descriptions of rich food and gluttons wiping grease from their chins. So it's always a relief when we switch to Daenerys in Essos sitting down to a plate of cheese, figs and olives. Although the locals eat roasted puppy foetus on a stick.[Spoilered out for grossness]

    My mom doesn't like cheese except on pizza. I think she ate a cube of sharp cheddar 50 years ago and hasn't touched it since. I tried to explain, there are many other cheeses, they don't taste the same when melted, etc... She won't listen to reason.

    Goat cheese is my favorite. The softer kinds, either with or without stuff in it like herbs, pepper, tomato, etc.

    Medium cheddars. Pepper jack. Love melted provolone & swiss.

    Due to my hillbilly ancestry, naturally I love american. The real kind, not that blasphemous american flavored "cheese product." American is my standard for grilled cheese sandwiches.

    I like the taste of brie IF it's hot & melty but otherwise the texture makes me gag. Not a fan of cheese with a heavy smoke flavor.

    A local supermarket has tons of cheeses, all arranged beautifully and it makes me want to buy them all. That's the other thing about cheese, it's PRETTY. But I was in there yesterday and as I always do when there is a lot to choose from, I got overwhelmed. Being somewhat OCD, I can easily get stuck in situations like that, just wandering in circles, looking at the same things over and over, unable to make a decision. Which is why I ended up getting 2 things I knew I'd like and then the gouda. I'd like to go in there next time and have an idea of what I'm looking for.

    i get overwhelmed by too much selection too.
    And I'm also not a fan of most smoked cheeses I've tasted.

    If you like goat's cheese, you would probably like sheep's milk cheeses too. Ever had manchego? You can choose between mild, medium and sharper varieties, and it's amazing with quince paste.

    Speaking of goat cheese, have you had būcheron? Sometimes it's called just būche when it's a smaller size but it's essentially the same thing. It's possibly my favorite cheese ever, it's still soft but riper than most soft goat's cheese so it's got kick to it but consistency of a softer cheese.

    Do you like blue cheeses? Roquefort, Gorgonzola, Stilton, etc are all great. Stilton kind of tastes like cheddar and blue cheese had a delicious cheese baby.

    also, try goat Brie.

    i once got a goat's milk blue cheese from the local market and it was divine, can't remember the name.

    gorgonzola is yummy but only in small quantities, it can be overwhelming.

    Goat's milk blue cheese is amazing, you don't see it often though.

    Gorgonzola is quite strong. I like to have it with grapes or apples, I find the sweetness helps with the strong flavours of the cheese.
    This little gourmet supermarket near my place used to carry this Australian cheese that was pretty much the perfect blue cheese, fairly strong but still creamy and not as intense as some blue cheeses. It was called roaring forties. Buy it if you see it, so good.

    I like making grilled cheese sandwiches with quite strong cheeses, like say a mix of cheddar and stilton, with some chutney and a couple of thin slices of fresh pear. Yum. Now I'm hungry again.
