Your Favourite Cheese ('Cheese Gromit')

Wed Jan 11, 2006 12:35 am

Like Wallace, I like cheese, but perhaps not to the same extent. Which is your favourite cheese and why?

Gruyere from CH.

It has gotten very expensive, but it is soooo tasty!

Too many, I love smoked gouda, smoked swiss (or even the non smoked variety). Aged cheddar is a favourite. Hmm, what else?

Gruyère and Vacherin Fribourgeois (both from Switzerland).

You either heat them separately or mix them 50/50 to prepare a "Fondue moitié moitié" (molten cheese) : Absolut divine.

That sounds very nice!

When I lived in Chester, I occasionally went to the local farmers' market. I am a huge fan of spice in my food, and I tried some chilli cheese. Mmm.  Big grin

Most cheeses agree with me (except for runny ones), but I like a good Camembert most of all.

All cheeses are wonderful. Wensleydale, Cheshire and Lancashire are the best, by far, which is a bit wrong considering I'm from Yorkshire.  Sad

Gruyere and Camembert.

I love the Gruyere just as the Emmentaler "hard" with some good (medium-strong) mustard, and the Feta with a lot of olive-sauce and a bit of soy-sauce.

I have two current favourites and they are made by the Fairview estate in Paarl near Cape Town...

Boland Blue is a mature Cheddar with a blue vein, awesome!

White Rock is a Stilton type cheese with apricots in, it has a very refreshing flavour.

My most favourite cheese is Old Dutch Master. Probably due to its unique flavour which cannot be compared to any other hard cheese. But it might break your wallet though, because the last time I got it costs almost 24.00 euro per kg.

I'm no connoisseur, but based on the limited variety we can get in most stores in the states, I enjoy a nice French Brie with baguette.

This is difficult as a native Wisconsin Cheesehead.

One one side I say Provalone.
But
One another side I say Roquefort.

In the end....it really doesn't matter. All I need is a platter, Special Point, and the green and gold at Lambeau in -20 winter weather kicking the Vikings or the Bears. Life can't get much better than that.

Yes, even if that sounds a little weird this combination is interesting. I used to eat gruyère and strong mustard too. But for some reason didn't do it since years.

I also love Raclette (molten cheese with potatoes)... mmhmh... tasty !

I adore "Tête de Moines", a hard Swiss cheese. But I like just about any continental European cheese. Manchego from Spain is very varied and nice, especially when left in olive oil for a while.
I also like a good camambert, brie, roquefort. In fact you name, I like it.

Those who mentioned Wensleydale... thanks for the reminder, had forgotten all about it, that was my favourite cheese as a child.

Not a huge cheddar fan anymore, yet do enjoy a bit from time to time. There is a relatively new cheddar (I think) in Ireland the past few years called "Dubliners", matured and very tastey.

After all this, I'm off to the kitchen!

Humboldt Fog by Cyprus Grove in California. It is a goat cheese treated with vegetable ash that is amazing either cold and crumbled or warmer and runny. The absolute best.
