    So what kind of cheese is your favorite? I personally LOVE swiss. I love the way it makes a nice burger taste. I can put it on anything as well. Munster isn't bad either.

    How about you?

    Feta (Greek style), very sharp chedders, especially white cheddar, and this Cuban cheese that I only know as "queso blanco" or "white cheese."

    Other good ones:

    Bleau
    Romano
    Parmessean
    Some kinds of fancy French stinky cheese.

    Hunter's Jack (super sharp white cheddar) is probably my favorite. Although I've had many cheeses at galleries that I loved and had no idea what they were.

    Cheese is one of those great foods that makes you glad you're human and are part of a species that can create new foods out of existing ones
    just dont think about how it's made (spoiled milk!)
    very sharp cheddar tops my list, along with all the other really strong cheeses
    however there is this place here in CT that makes ricotta that you could eat like yogurt.........mmmmmmmmm
    i wonder why i'm overweight............
     
  7. I like melted cheese.

    ;)

    Seriously tho, I love Habanero Cheddar, as used in combination with delicious pepperoni & ritz sammich assembly.

    Beyond that, Montery Jack, baby swiss cheez balls (thanx Cabot), provolone and brie.
     
  8. And don't EVEN get me started on fondue. Melt it all, I don't care. Pass the stale bread. v:O)

    Havarti (my all-time favourite)
    Bleu (sp?)
    Gouda (mmm... Baby Bell ;))
    Mozerella
    Provolone

    And cream cheese, if that counts ;) I really hate parmessan though.

    Peace,

    I love Munster and Swiss for most things. Cheddar is a classic, and american is ok too.

    Depends on how it's used. For instance -

    Real queso blanco, like from Mexico, makes orgasmic nachos.

    Maytag blue cheese whoops ass on a salad.

    The cheeses used in northern Europe for raclette are amazing!

    LOVE goat cheese on about anything, especially good pizza!!!

    Provel and Parmigiano Reggiano, which you should be able to get in any good-sized US city that has an Italian part of town, are killers on pastas.

    ....and sometimes some great corn tortilla chips dipped in good old Velveeta + Pace salsa are all it takes.

    I'm sure I'll get made fun of for this, but when I was in high school, my bandmates and I lived on EZ cheese. Totally fake-processed-canned goodness.
     
  16. I love them pink airbrushed wine-cheese balls that are rolled in nuts that you spread on "sociables" crackers.

    That stuff is MAD addictive.

    A good cheese should make you cough, when you sniff it.
