My significant other and I recieved a strangely beautiful and expensive cheeseboard for Christmas. So we're saying f@$k the lactose intolerance, once a month we're having a cheese night.

So I need suggestions for delicious cheeses to try. My favourite cheese is Coeur de Lion, which is like...the Cracker Barrel of France. Today I discovered they have a delightful mini version.




Super creamy and buttery. Mm.

Sooo? What's your cheese?

Did someone say cheese?

I like smoked Gouda, Muenster, Brie, feta ... I think about the only kind I don't like is Swiss.

Cheese! I like cheese. I even like cutting the cheese (pick any meaning of that you want). I like any kind of cheese. Cheese with bacon is good. Cheese with a bit of spice, with jalapeno peppers is excellent.

Try finding some good charcuterie and possibly mixing the two.

Blue-vein Brie at room temperature served on Pear or Peach slices and with a little Maple Syrup (not the fake stuff) trickled over it. Better than chocolate.

Oh, and some Galway Pipe port, reclining in front of an open fire with some smooth Jazz playing.

I like Pepper Jack, and Habanero Jack even more so.

My favourite is good old fashioned English Cheddar. Mature, extra mature, it's all the same to me. It melts like nothing else on the face of the world, and I love it. It goes brilliantly with all my favourite dishes, and honestly, if they tax oxygen at some point, I won't mind as long as they stop taxing people who like a bit of English Cheddar.

That being said, I did have a particularly pleasant experience with some Wensleydale and date cheese, which had gone just slightly off, to the point where the fruit was turning alcoholic inside the cheese. That was a special night. I had it with crackers, piled high with the stuff, and drizzled with a fine port I happened to have to hand. I was utterly hammered, and well fed that night!

The cheese we often use for grilled cheese is Red Leicester. Mmm.

We usually make gravlax, and a friend up the road has a gorgeous meat shop, so we're never far from " treat meat".

I prefer Cheddar, the sharper the better...
We do a cheese platter at every holiday gathering and I am surprised at the
number of people who don't like sharp cheddar!

Also, I have learned, it is important to let some cheeses come to room temp before consuming.,...

We're not really the Jazz types. We'll try out some blue Brie while listening to The Arkells, or Queen.

They're obviously crazy! It's one thing to not enjoy cheese in general, but to specifically not like sharp cheddar? Who raises these people!

Admittedly I a know very little about the different types of cheeses, and have tried even less.

I am very interested in trying different kinds, but I can't get past the incredibly high price of many of them for such a small portion (although I would prefer a small portion if i'm just trying it).

I've only tried a small handful of different cheeses, all of which are very common. Cheddar, Swiss, Mozzarella, Brie, Ricotta, and Parmesan are the ones i've tried individually.

I would say mozzarella would be my favorite so far

i have this big book of cheeses that I thumb through from time to time. I like a nice cheese block with fruit. I also like a cheese block with a charcuterie block.

My favorite cheese is a creamy goat cheese. But for a cheese block, I like something like a nice bleu to go with the fruit. Maybe a roquefort, or some other "blue". I usually will depend on the vendor to make a recommndation based on inventory (i use Veldhuizen Cheese, a small company here in Texas, for my fine cheeses). I really like a danish blue with marinated pears.

Im also a fan of some of the cheddars you can find. A smoked cheddar or chipotle cheddar is nice with nuts or mushrooms. Not as good with wine, though.

Secret....we know someone in the cheese department of our local grocery store, so they will usually set aside things that are about to go 50% off if they happen to be working when we grocery shop.

So we usually get to try things for cheaper.
