There are so many applications that I can't pick. I did tell DH that I was going on a cheese binge as soon as our son is born because right now I can't have some of my faves like any blue cheese or brie!

I like cheddar (extra sharp!), jack, swiss, provolone, parmesan, mozzarella (fresh), etc.
You really should give brie a chance. It's a lovely soft cheese with a very rich buttery taste. It goes great spread over crusty bread with roasted garlic.

The on thing we always keep on hand in a wedge of real Parmesan. We've also discovered chihuahua cheese and fontina for melting. Oh, how I love my cheese!

Ah yes, good cheese deserves good bread. I like one of our local organic bakeries - makes wonderful stuff. I made my BF a grilled cheese sandwich with a horseradish cheddar, tomatoes on a fab country sourdough! Man, oh man was that good! ( I had a bite!)

I have never met a cheese I didn't like! Cheese on the other hand, does not like me! But, I eat it anyway. My favorite is brie, I could eat it everyday. I love it with fruit, in salads, baked in a pastry or simply by itself, heated up or served chilled. I have a wonderful bake brie recipe with honey, dried cherries, toasted pecans, and rosemary. mmmm....

I agree!

When I first moved to Texas, I couldn't find anything that even began to compare to real cheese. The stuff I came across was like eating poorly flavored wax. And being from Wisconsin, I know what a good cheese is! I had a friend of mine send me a box of the good stuff, just so I could satisfy my cheese cravings!

I finally found some good cheese here, and am happy again. It didn't surprise me any when I looked on the back of the package, and noticed that the cheese came from Wisconsin.

I love eating shredded cheddar right out of the bag

I like provolone on my subs. And I like blue cheese dressing.

I love cheese! Marble Jack cheddar and provolone is my favorite.

For snacks my favorite is a sharp cheddar with apples, crusty bread, or crackers. For sandwiches I like a mild chedder or Swiss.
post #42 of 50
My favorite is provolone. I prefer that on any sandwich. To eat plain I prefer cheddar. I do not like the taste of swiss, but that is my husband and son's favorite.

My favorite cheese is Canadian. I've been here over six years and I still can't believe how good the cheese is here. The Canadian cheddar is unbelievable, even the feta is fantastic; I never liked feta until I tasted it here!

My favorite sandwich cheese is Muenster, but I love a lot of different cheeses. My favorite special snack cheese is Brie, and I love Parmesan sauces. I just love cheese!

That's another thing: try and find a good loaf of store-bought bread now-a-days. Most of it is disgusting!

I remember when my mom used to make her own homemade bread - from scratch. Take a slice of that fresh from the oven, and slather it with real butter! It's to die for!

All our supermarkets have a bakery on-site that bakes fresh bread all day. The choices are incredible - potato scallion, French, Belgian, Italian, multi-grain, calabrese, sesame seed, poppy seed, etc, etc. and often they are still warm from the oven. I wouldn't even bother making bread with all that available.

Occasionally I do make a batch of bread but I only know how to make 4/5 loaves and it's too much for us now.

Yeah, I never have gotten into making bread because I don't have the strength in my hands for kneading, and I used to regret that. Dad had some wonderful bread recipes that I would love to have taken over doing, but with all the gorgeous bread available these days, frankly I have better things to do with my time! As you say, even the supermarkets have wonderful stuff, and then there are umpteen dozen awesome bakeries...

Oh cheese, how I love cheese! So glad to find so many other cheese lovers here.
I can't pick a fave, although I do try to keep a Brie close at hand at all times.
I'm not a goat cheese or blue cheese fan, although I do keep trying from time to time in case my tastes change.

Carol, you crack me up!
Nothing beats a freshly baked loaf of bread! We are so lucky here with our supermarkets, but I still bake a lot at home.

I'd like to try making my own Paneer sometime too. I love Indian, and paneer dishes in particular.

My favourite cheese is New Zealand Tasty Cheddar!!! It's medium with a nice kick.

I also enjoy mould ripened cheeses such as brie and blue variaties.

I just realized I should share this: my brother is a musician, and the first place that gave him a chance when he started as a solo act was this really cool, upscale place called Central Market, where shopping is a social experience and you can find all sorts of fabulous imported foods. So my brother still plays on their balcony a day or two every month, and a couple of weeks ago, he took his ten-year-old, my beloved nephew, along with him.

Well, it's a six-hour gig, and my nephew got bored and started wandering around... and he got to talking with the people in the cheese department, where they make fresh mozzarella right there in the store... and they let him try their sample of the day, which was French goat cheese with cherry-blossom honey, and he just loved it... so they gave him a tray, and he went around handing out samples of it all over the store -- and they told him he sold more goat cheese in an hour than they'd sold all day long!
