Default A sharp Wisconsin organic cheddar is my fave

It is flavorful and firm without being too intense.

My least fave is Bleu Cheese and Gorgonzola as, to me, they both have a very unappealing, musty taste.

Overall, I am not a huge cheese fan and don't eat much of it.

British Cotswold. It's got a lot going on it in. Sharp cheese taste with some kind of onion or chive component. I agree with the last poster on the Bleu Cheese thing. Don't like it at all.

Many years ago while in college, I took a trip across Europe, finishing in Holland. I actually took the train to Gouda and bought my favorite souvenier-a HUGE wheel of Aged Gouda, it was the BEST! We also took a bike tour in Amsterdam and visited a cheese maker, they had many different flavored goudas, my favorite was the old.

You should try the Belgian cheeses...together with some Belgian beers, they are absolute heaven and come in 100's of varieties! Was in Bruges recently, and there we were told Belgium has the second most cheese varieties in the World, after France. not bad for such a small country.

I love cheese, my favorite depends on where I am, what I'm doing and what I'm drinking... My least favorites: Kraft American and Velveeta... I don't think they really taste like cheese...

Default Cheeses

I've found very few cheeses I don't like even a little. My favorites are all of the soft, ripened cheeses like Camembert & Brie and, when I can, the stinkier the better. A co-worker came to my room in Oostende, Belgium while I was writing specifications to repair a U.S. Navy Minesweeper and snacking on some cheese & crackers from a nearby grocery store. He sniffed the air & asked, "Did you just change a baby's diaper in here?" That's what I'm talking about!

I like smoked Gouda too! I think it's not very high style in cheeses,
you are supposed to like something high and fancy. But, then, I like
all cheeses. The exception are those which smell with ammonia. I
don't like the smell.

There was a post a few years back about buying wheels of dutch cheese in aruba or curacao.

I mentioned that I wasn't sure I wanted an entire wheel and wondered if anyone knew if they would cut the cheese. Was either a group of WAY too serious folks or they didn't want to encourage my juvenile sense of humor, but no responses.

On a more serious note, hard to go wrong with any of the Cabot brand cheeses, esp the Cheddars. Great pricing on those at Walmart.

Ran into a female inmate in one of the jails I work at a few years ago, whose 1st name was Velveeta.... kinda wondered if maybe she murdered mom for that moniker *L*

Favorite: Good, fresh goat cheese. Heaven.
Close second: Parrano (try it, you'll be pleasantly surprised).
Third: Feta (on a freshly prepared gyro or salad -- yum).

Least favorite: that fake "American" cheese stuff they put on burgers at fast food places.

I never knew that you could buy and import a whole wheel of cheese.
How did they manage to bring it back home? Cheese is food, and there
are strict regulations on what food you can bring or not. And, it
would be classified as "perishable".

No idea how they got away w/ bringing it back (if indeed they did). I was too busy making infantile jokes about it. But if you do a search for curacao and cheese or aruba and cheese, you might come up with the original thread.

No, I don't think anyone would convict her if she did. Justifiable.
