To me there is no upper limit, I love cheese.

I spend most of the year trying to be as frugal as possible but now is the time I like to start thinking about the festive cheese board budget.

I have scalled it down a little over the past few years but my record was about £160 (around 250 dollars).

As you can tell I really love the huge variation of cheese's available and treat christmas dinner as an unfortunate side effect of getting down to the serious part of the meal, cheese and port.

I love the fact that you can sit there with friends, tasting, talking, discussing the pro's and cons, weather you like bread or biscuit, fruit or no fruit, Getting those that usualy stick to standard cheese to push the boundries and try a well matured stinking blue or an odd combination.

Maybe it's just me but I really do like cheese.

I was going to say you can never have too much cheese but after seeing the pic watchitburn posted I'm not so sure.

I like a little cheese. How much is too much? I would say it depends on the cheese and your intolerances to the monoamines.

Now, cheese is aged so too much aged anything can cause a multiple of problems. Some is good for us but too much is not good. If you can properly use copper in your body, then you can eat more. Remember, cheese contains tyramines, a type of chemical found in alcohol, and overconsumption of this chemical can cause problems. It can cause people to fly off the handle if too much is consumed.

I can go on and on with this subject. Cheese is an antidepressant, if consumed moderately it can help to keep calm and happy. So don't overeat it, moderation needs to be observed. Cheese can give people a headache too, so can too much yogurt or any fermented or aged product.

You can *never* have too much cheese!! A world without cheese would be a very sad place indeed.

Imagine the foods we couldn't enjoy without cheese:


  1. Ceaser salad with grated parmesan
  2. Lasagna
  3. Philly cheese steak sandwiches (oh my gosh... the mouth waters)
  4. PIZZA!
  5. Macaroni and cheese
  6. and so so many more great foods that wouldn't be the same without cheese




So IMO bring the cheese on, the cheese hunger can never be satiated

Eurovision Song Contest, now that is just too much cheese.

As for the edible type, about as much as you like. Cheese is good, a nice Stilton and port completes Christmas lunch imo.

That looks about right to me


Seriously, if I could eat that much cheese, I would.

Oh, you have to have cheese!

It's an integral part of the family festivities. Everyone brings one or two of their favorite varieties and on the second day, we lay on a buffet board of sausage, cheese, crackers, fruit, various dips and spreads, and other seasonal treats. We also make three large crock-pots of soup. Everyone then proceeds to browse all day and we all play games together.

You couldn't do that without cheese. Aside from the obvious sliced cheese, there's all the cheese in the dips and spreads and seasonal treats ...

I had a grilled bell pepper, stuffed with scamorza and herbs, wrapped in bacon for lunch.
It was about as good as it gets.
There should be a monument built in honor of whoever discovered cheese.

You know it was likely the lazy guy who simply shoved milk into a badly cleaned out stomach? I'll bet that's where rennet first came into contact with milk .


All hail, Zug, the lazy nomad!

Good Thread, F&S.
Being an old guy, the more exotic cheeses are all
that tickle my blown out taste buds.. and always
have for standard stuff some sharp or Havarti laying
around. Gotta have it.
Alas, like spirits one must be conservative or suffer.

i usually splurge on cheese this time of year too.
i try to get an 'exotic' cheese once a month or so....its just so expensive though.

there is a farm market close to me that imports all kinds of killer cheese and you can get very small, couple ounce packs so its cool. i can spend 20 bucks and try a few different kinds.

i dont really havea favorite but i am a purist. i dont like the smoky flavored cheeses.
