I love cheese
I like cheese
I hate cheese
Parmesan is pretty mild compared to what I was thinking still.
Roquefort looks really gross lol
Well, obviously parmesan is not nearly as stinky or strong flavored as a regular blue cheese or roquefort lol (that is not necessarily the point either).... I can't remember if I have tried Limburger..... It sounds as something that I should have tried but I just can't place it. I don't mind the smell but I do wonder if my system could at large handle unpasteurized products. I have every reason to believe they should actually be better tasting than pasteurized products (as flavor is obviously sacrificed for the sake of health) but there really is a risk here.... Perhaps it is not as bad as I have been lead to believe though.
As much as I'd love to gorge on cheese, I have a certain level of lactose intolerance to deal with...
Most of cheese is actually great but I don't eat it that often. Gouda was my absolute favourite, I should buy one the next time.
My parents bought to much cheese for their birthday party. We had to eat a complete st nectaire and a complete brie (a complete brie is huge) with only 5 people. I just had to forget eating balanced meal.
Don't love cheese nor do I hate it. I use it whenever the food really needs it, but the one thing I don't particularly like when it comes to cheese is melting it to the point where it becomes liquid. My mom thinks things taste better when they've been microwaved to the point of becoming a liquid, but I would think otherwise. Either my taste buds are off or she's off her rockers XD
Well i'm not sure to understand you.
First the cheese doesn't need to be eaten melted. In fact it's more those who doesn't like cheese who eat it that way because the smell is not that strong.
Second, if you use cheese as a top and heat it, it's hard that it does not become liquid.
I wouldn't say that I really like cheese. I mostly prefer it to be eaten in pizza and pasta. I also like to eat it with soup.
The thing I don't really like about cheese is its smell.
And also I don't like melted cheese. Also I have allergy for several types of cheese as I have allergy for milk.
I enjoy cheese though I am only beginning to explore different varieties. My preference is for French or Spanish cheese, depending on the mood I am in. I just finished a wedge of Campo de Montalban, very similar to manchego but a bit more complex. I bought some Saint Andre yesterday and am really enjoying it, my first time trying it and I am quite impressed.
Cheese is good. The only type of cheese I've never really cared for is pepperjack, for whatever reason. I also don't care for melted liquid cheese. It gets to be waaaay too much for me.
I love cheese especially with wine.

Any favorite types of cheese?
Ok, yesterday I had a great cheese experience. As the fanatic I am I really enjoy good aged cheese. The other day at this god forsaken town I visited a cheese store. While the town was forsaken, the actual store belonged to a known association of cheese makers in the country (I don't think they export though). The association usually has their members sell their cheese with the brand of the association. Anyways, I noticed they had a huge cheese wheel which actually looked horrible however when I tried it it was the best Gruyere I ever had. It wasn't the one they normally sold at stores, it was a properly aged one and it was plain awesome. I did not actually intend on buying anything, specially since earlier I had bought their store Gruyere which was rather plain, but I ended up walking out of there with a pound of it because that was about as much cash as I had at the time (spent the rest of it, interestingly, on more cheese).
I enjoy cheese a lot. My two favorites are probably.
A hard type from Switzerland with a great sweet and nutty flavor wonderful grainy texture. I like to make Potatoes Au Gratin with it as well as eating it with bread.
Soft and mild with a slight buttery flavor. Very good with bread as part of a cheese course. Quite a strong aroma though, so you tend to know when you have it in you fridge.
I also enjoy the classic American version of cheese. It's a completely different experience from what people consider "real" cheese but I still love to cook with various Cheddars and even the much scoffed at Velveeta (which not so much a cheese as it is "cheese inspired").
I am not a goat cheese fan. One time I heard a fan of goat cheese describe the taste as "Like sweat scraped off the back of a goat with a dirty knife." I find this to be a perfect description.
I enjoy cheese with wine but I rarely get the chance to drink it. In my experience, good wine is too expensive for me and bad wine is too terrible. I find the same to be true of most alcohol actually; which is why I almost never drink.(Tea is more cost effective)

There are different type of goat cheese, maybe you should start with the fresh ones which taste is not that strong. But I know from my mother it is a taste difficult to start to like.
As for the wine, you should find some good bottles for a reasonable price. Are californian wines that expensive ? With a 75cl bottle, you can make 5-6 glasses. That makes between 1$ and 2$ the glass, I find it reasonable for a meal with friends.
