Favorite Cheese? - Page 2

post #31 of 48

Dry jack sounds like something I would like so I am going to have to try and find some. Regular jack with peppers in it is good for a sandwich topper or melted on a burger.

Went to the local supermarket’s deli counter today and

they had a new Boar’s Head brand, Chipotle Gouda, very yummy.

Phatch, it is a pretty hard cheese, but the flavor is awesome.  The best part is all the crunchy little "crystals" throughout the cheese.  If you've never had it, it is definitely worth looking for.

I picked up some P'tit Basque. Interesting cheese.  Mild for a sheeps cheese with an earthy brie like overtone. I'm not a fan of brie, but balanced against the rest of the flavors, this is a nice cheese. Still haven't figured out what I'd do with it in a sandwich or other uses. My friends liked it pretty well on crackers and such.

Apericubes?

The American Munster is much milder and harder than its French counterpart, which is a gooey and strong tasting cheese, infamous for its very very strong smell.

There are several cities named Munster both in France and in Germany.

Yes!! Samos 99. Hahaha... and KIRI. Those were only available to us when we ate at our grand-parents: they were considered a special treat! :))

 

What about Carré frais? 

 

post #41 of 48

Yes,  same here . My parents kept a good stock of these cheeses in the fridge so that when we got in from school we were allowed to have some with crackers then she would tell us to sit down and do our homework.....my fav was samos as a kid.

 

I know they have mentioned gouda here , but I also like smoked gouda.

I can't remember the name either, drat!  But the ash was from the tradition of putting the morning milk in the crock, sprinkling the ash over the top as a protective layer, then later that day putting the evening milk in.  The lower and upper layers are the same, but different.  It has been years since I've had any.
