View Full Version : Favorite Cheese

I'm sitting here eating some Saga Blue Cheese and was just wondering what's everyone's favorite cheese? Mine has got to be blue - but not this brand.

11-01-2006, 11:52 PM
Stinky Diaper Stilton.

Just kidding, Velveeta White.

11-01-2006, 11:52 PM
Didn't know Velveeta made a white.

11-01-2006, 11:59 PM
I stand corrected, it is an HEB brand. Thought is was velveeta. But seriously, I like milder cheeses.

I saw the title of this thread and instantly thought Saga Blue. Wild that this is what you were eating. I love Saga Blue with a bottle of Cab.

Blue cheese, or ....

Some nice ripe Limburger with a thick slice of onion and fresh ground pepper on rye, and a beer of course! But ... the wife may divorce me if I bring Linburger into the house again, so I have to wait 'til I go to Mom's in the spring.

Good old fashioned Stilton. Extra Mature!!!


I take it you're all fans of www.cheese.com (http://www.cheese.com)? :wink:

It's so dependent on what else is going on... Blue cheeses have a lot of variety, but a really good Stilton or Roquefort is tough to beat... Then again, some bries are great. I'm partial to high-cream British cheddars, too. St. Andre is a really nice white cheese, and I like some goat and sheep cheeses. There are a lot of good American artisanal cheeses, but, unfortunately, American cheese makers aren't allowed to use unpasteurized milks, and a lot of European cheeses are better because if this.

Love a good Blue Cheese. Cheddar that has been aged over year is also good.

11-02-2006, 06:52 AM
I am a fan of blue cheeses too. Gorgonzola is my go-to favorite, but I agree with Carbon Toe, a good aged Stilton is hard to beat.

11-02-2006, 08:33 AM
Parmasen and no not the stuff in the green can. A good Dutch gouda. Gorgonzola is always good. Scamortza if it has a nice smoke flavor. Cant beat a fresh buffola mozzeralla especially what the garden it ripw with tomatos and basil. I could probably think of a few more. I really have not tried too many cheeses that I dont like.

11-02-2006, 08:41 AM
I like Munster, Provolone or smoked Gouda. I like Feta on salads

Or Always Save American on Spam with mustard and mushrooms.

very sharp cheddar

got a special place in the yard set aside for "shelf" cheeses, and American (the hot dog of the cheese world)

Grafton smoked cheddar....


Also love smoked mozzarella from Liuzzi's Cheese in North Haven, CT or brie baked in puff pastry.

11-02-2006, 09:09 AM
I'm with Jay on the Muenster, Provolone and Gouda but I hate feta! I love lots of cheese but besides the three aforementioned, I enjoy Havarti, sharp cheddar and the BEST blue I've ever eaten is Maytag Blue Cheese! That stuff rocks!

11-02-2006, 09:12 AM
Romano!!!!!!!!!!! Hard, a hint of salt and tangy.
It's a Party Cheese.
I also like to smoke MANY types of cheeses. I love smoked cheese.

Smoke On!!!!!!!

11-02-2006, 09:21 AM
Cabot Habanero Cheddar

11-02-2006, 09:55 AM
Muenster, smoked gouda, havarti are faves.

Like pepper jack with some sliced fatty on a biscuit.

11-02-2006, 09:56 AM
So many cheeses, so little time! :)

In no paticular order...

Blue cheese
aged cheddar
aged stilton
aged gouda

11-02-2006, 10:18 AM
I love any and all cheeses, especially blues and triple cream cheeses like St Andre. Also love Vermont cheddars, real parmesan, and any Wisconsin cheese. And Wisconsin cheese curds battered and fried!

In fact, 10 times out of 10, I'd take a cheese plate over dessert if the restaurant offers one.

11-02-2006, 11:53 AM
Cabot Habanero Cheddar

One of my favorites.

Maytag Bleu, a spicey pepper jack, provolone, feta, swiss

11-02-2006, 12:06 PM
Cheddar (white or yellow) as sharp as you can get it. Feta is pretty good too.

Don't tell anyone.......but a good shot of aerosol cheese on a Garlic flavor triscuit os pretty good too.

Real French triple creams (unpasturized), smoked Rambol (French double cream), Roomano (think Romano with milk crystals), Berkshire blue, real Italian Buffalo mozzarella (using Italian water buffalo), extra extra sharp cheddar (you can only get the really good stuff in Wisconsin as it really never leaves the state), Parmigaino Reggiano. I could go on for hours and then you bring wine or other ingredients, etc, into the mix and it develops even more. You get the idea, I like cheese.

11-02-2006, 12:17 PM
Handkäse mit Musik! It’s one of those that if you can get past the smell you’re OK!

11-02-2006, 01:16 PM
We like to plank cook brie with a little dill on the top. Nice and creamy and melty... Creamelty!

11-02-2006, 02:07 PM
Aged cheddar or baby swiss!! Although that may change after I try Jay's American on spam!!

11-02-2006, 02:19 PM
I stand corrected, it is an HEB brand. Thought is was velveeta. But seriously, I like milder cheeses.

It is, what it is...but that's some good stuff with the double boiler and the right seasoning and additional cheese.

Coming home from business trips to Milwaukee my checked luggage always gets searched. Stuffed with Usinger sausage and cheese from the Wisconsin Cheese Mart it must drive the sniffer dogs nuts.

Good quick moreish recipe....

1 Box of mature Camembert http://www.cheese.com/Description.asp?Name=Camembert%20de%20Normandie. Ensure that its stapled together not glued otherwise you'll have a messy smoker!!
1-2 Cloves of garlic sliced thinly
Splash of White Wine (rest for cook)

Remove wax paper from Cheese. Stab loads of slits into bottom of cheese, pop slivers of garlic into holes, pop back into wooden box garlic side down, repeat for the top (If you're like me, lazy, you can get away with stabbing the hell out of the cheese, crush a clove or two over it and rub it in!). Add a good glug of wine over the top, pop on the lid. Pop in the smoker for 15-30 mins until cheese is gooey. Serve in box.

Dip wedged boiled potatoes, pickled gerkins, etc into it and scoop into mouth!!

.... Cabot Extra Sharp Cheddar, Reggiano Parmigiano, Fresh Mozzarella, Cabot Pepper Jack are our mainstays. Enjoy many of those posted from time to time. After Q .... cold slices of crisp apple and parings of Parmagiano R seem to be a great finish.
