Before moving to Europe, I thought I had seen it all, but now I can honestly say, we in the U.S. know NOTHING about cheese!

My favorite so far is Dutch Gouda. Oh boy, just thinking about it makes my mouth water!

Whenever I go home to NY, I can no longer stand to eat American cheese. The last time my mother bought cheese from the same Italian deli we've been shopping at for the past umpteen years, and when I tasted it, I found it absolutely revolting. It was just salt and oil. I wondered how I ever stomached that crap in the past.

OH man, we don't know anything about cheese in the US. There are so many cheeses in France alone that I didn't try...I love Conte, obviously, brie and chevre fall in there...there's so many more but can't remember the names!
Bonjour Chef!

America leads the world in so many areas, but let's face it: American chesses are pretty bad, especially compared to what the French can produce. Although I have to say that American cheese can be a great choice for sandwiches.

American cheese?!?!?!? Have you guys been to Europe lately? Once you try some choice European cheeses, you'll never go back to American cheddar. Salt and oil, that's all it is.

I forgot to mention cheeses from Denmark. I was there a few months ago and was very pleasantly surprised. They have quite a reputation. I remember, but never tried, a special cheese that stinks to high heaven. It smells so bad you usually have to keep it in a separate room. But I've been told the taste is heavenly. These Europeans!

Most Honorable mention goes to Norwegian Ekte Geitost. It's a brown, semi-soft, caramel cheese made of burnt goat milk. Man, I tell you, that stuff goes directly to the pleasure nerves. One of my most vivid memories was sitting in a park next to this really old church near the main square in Trondheim, Norway this summer, wolfing down this great Norwegian cheese on special bread with butter.

Gruyere, chèvre, camenbert, and my personal favorite, boursin. Boursin cheese is the best. Aside from these (and many others I can't name) French cheeses, I'm also fond of gouda.

I hate all types of Goat cheese. I don't know why. i tried it, and learned where it came from. That is the first time I have done that with ANY food that's out there. But Goat's are not what I like to get my cheese from.

Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Staten, Uptown, what now? Lets make it happen.

Gouda (the young! unaged variety) is up there, but my true favorite will always be 'Passendale' which hails from Belgium. Somewhat similar flavor to Gouda, but with other more subtle hints to it. Excellent stuff, too bad very little (if any) is exported out of Belgium

Hey. Two good things are in Tillimook Oregon.

The Tillimook Cheese plant and the Air Museum...

You can kill two birds with one stone there.

Wanted to bring a big piece of Wisconsin Cheddar to Europe once ´till I realised I couldn´t keep it cool during the transatlantic flight. Left it as tip for the roommaid at a motel close to ORD.  Smile

The Brits have quite good Cheddar aswell.

In order:

1. Havarti w/ Dill (yummy)
2. Swiss (must be on every sandwich)
3. Brie (especially the kind you can bake in the oven)

4. Any cheese served up in a Quesadilla (my favorite)!

Hi,
The best cheese has to be the Irish stuff. The worst cheese had to be the stuff you could find under my ex boyfriends foreskin!

Although Cheddar Cheese is supposed to be perfected here in the UK my favourite varieties are Canadian mature and a New Zealand variety I tried once. Other than than, Babybel or Danish Jarlsberg are nice. Mozzarella too.

Worst cheese - kraft slices or Stilton
