    Yuuuummmmmm Cheese!

    My personal favs are…

    Strong-Crumbly Chedder (and I mean proper strong)
    Saint Agur – Strong and spreadable Bluecheese. Love it.
    Smoked Bavarian – Semi-Melted on Crumpets, Nice!

    Cheddar so strong it makes you want to chew your tongue off.

    I’m also a big fan of strong cheddar. My other favourite cheeses include Aura, which is a Finnish blue cheese, and Black Label Gouda, which is a very mature hard cheese. I also like feta for salads and parmesan for pasta. Unfortunately vegetarian parmesan is pretty difficult to find, so I often end up grating cheddar instead.

    I love most cheeses though, really. I’ve often heard the question, “would you rather give up cheese or chocolate?”, and I’d definitely give up chocolate.

    Gouda on a sandwich, cheddar on a burger or a biscuit.

    @matt90 I agree, Cracked.com is always good if you’re looking for a laugh.

    As for the food, I usually just have normal chedder, I really don’t like strong cheese.

    I’ve just discovered the joys of Feta cheese! Great on a toastie with chorizo!

    Other than that I like most non-mouldy cheeses. Brie is bloody awful!

    I love cheese! Whether’s it’s holey and rubbery, soft and white, or smelly and veined, it’s all good to me!

    Some of my favourites include:

    Brie
    Camembert
    Coquetdale
    Reblochon
    Chèvre (goat’s cheese)
    Stilton
    Parmesan
    Pecorino
    Cheddar (mature)
    Gouda
    Emmental
    Jarlsberg
    Edam
    Mozzarella

    But I also love the horrible orange cheese in slices when used to make cheeseburgers!

    Fun Story: I was on holiday in the USA two years ago, and was ordering dessert in a restaurant when I noticed that one of the options was “Cheese Plate”. Now in the USA, it seems to be very hard to find a cheese outside the four main types of American, Swiss, Cheddar, and Jack, so I chose it, hoping that I would be able to eat some high-grade, quality cheese for the first time in a couple of weeks. But when the dish was brought to the table, I was very disappointed to find that the chef had simply cut a myriad of small cubes from his industrial-sized blocks of the aforementioned American, Swiss, Cheddar, and Jack varieties. I ate it all anyway.

    Gouda is my cheese of choice and Feta follows very close.

    I like lots of different types, but grated, sliced, melted are my real favourites. :P
