I have been very adventurous lately with trying different cheeses. A German friend has taught me to LOVE goats cheese, and the ones we have bought are infused with different flavours. I don't buy a lot of cheese because it causes you to put on weight. I like camembert, brie, tasty and a few new ones we have tried. I also like fetta and ricotta in cooking, as well as marscapone. I don't eat cheese on a regular basis, but I love it all the same
I like many different cheeses, and often try new ones.I do not however like any of the Blue Cheese varieties.They are just too strong for me.Havarti is to die for and I also enjoy Masdaam.which is similar to Jarlsberg. Different cheeses have totally different uses with their textures and flavours so I would never just buy one or two!!
I regularly bhy the samd cheeses for eating and cooking but iv i6see aanew one that takes my eye, I will try it. One of my grandsons is 4 years old and he's a grazer eating small amounts of food during the day but he lives on cheese. My daughter has so many varieties in her fridge and he prefers cheese to any other food.
Gosh. Don't know what happened with my keyboard there. Yes Finy. He would eat cheese all day if he could. He's allowed the odd snack during the day and has his fruit and cereal but that's about it. The doctor said not to be concerned as he's otherwise quite healthy. He prefers the tasty cheeses and sometimes has crackers with the cheese but otherwise just eats cheese on its own.
My parents should have called me CHEESE instead of Annalisa! I love cheese of all types even though I do react adversely with bloating. BUT as much as I try and limit the cheese I do eat (I admit I can't stay away from it) I will try and eat only good quality cheese and mix it up and try new varieties. The last cheese I bought (a couple of weeks ago) was Gorgonzola Dolce.
LOVE it! For something really simple spread a little of the cheese on a slice of pear and drizzle a little bit of honey on top!!! Also mix it into pasta or spread on crackers with some avocado - goodness I'm starting to drool!!
I love lots of different cheeses but, for convenience, I usually have my tasty slices for grilling or sandwiches. Jarlsberg, Maarsdam. St Claire, White Castello, Havarti, Edam . . . . mmmm. Just off to have a cheese and banana sandwich then . . .
I usually buy the the Mainland vintage,but I tend to buy other cheeses if I am going somewhere out, or when we go away at New Year's we go to a caravan park and have happy hour, so I do buy different ones to share.
