I love cheese
I like cheese
I hate cheese
Blai current sig made me thing a thread about cheese is missing.
So what is your relation with cheese ? Do you like it or can not approach it in a range of 5 meter ?
As you may know France is THE country for cheese
The number of types in France is simply incomputable. They are rond, square, heart shaped ; soft, hard, liquid ; with cow milk, goat milk, sheep milk...
What I think is difficult for people who are not use with cheese, is that French ones tend to be very smelly. And I mean really very smelly. Even a camembert (I guess the most famous French cheese) can achieve bacteriological level when left too much time in the fridge. However a cheese lover will not be afraid of the smell and may say the smeller, the better.
However not all French like cheese, my sister in law for example can only eat melted rasped emmental.
So how is it in your country ? Do you eat quite a lot ? What type of cheese ? And whatever you can said about that godly food

I personally love cheese, all of it. I have yet to try a cheese I did not like. Not sure if there is a particular type of cheese which would be popular in my country. I suspect one but I don't know the name in english lol.
I love cheese oh so much, although American cheese bores me. Gotta try more cheese though.
Cheese is awesome.
Dunno why but in USA food in general leans toward the bland side in terms of taste. It's like people there avoid flavor lol. I remember when I had decided to stop eating the terrible, terrible food and my school's cafeteria and just cook terrible food myself(its not terrible but obviously I am not a chef lol). Beer is particularly watery in USA...
Anyways, what do you mean by american cheese? Are you talking about that cheddar cheese thing or cheese in USA in general? Even though I have never gotten the impression the average joe particularly enjoys cheese in USA (other than american cheese or cheez whiz) it is still very easy easy to find reasonably large selections in just about any supermarket.
I do recall something fun from my childhood involving cheese. My dad used to get a baguette bread, cut in in slices and put slices of bree cheese on top. Then he would use a blowtorch (not sure if that is the right word but you get the idea) to toast the bread (so to speak lol) and meld the cheese. Then we woud add olive oil and eat it. It was fun, unnecessarily destructive in a few ways and delicious. I think my dad saw that in a cooking channel. He sometimes cooks as a hobby but he kinda experiments with stuff which ends end looking like he is playing with food and I kind picked the habit. Food is fun lol.
Correct spelling is brie :-). But what your father may have been inspired with is a Barbecue camembert which is really an awesome way to eat it.Quote:
I always felt kinda disgusted by the whole 'canned cheese' thing. Thank god they don't have it in Aus yet... but they do have 'cheese spread' which looks kinda suspicious. ;A;
On a side note- I hate camembert. My family freakin' LOVES it though.

They also have this too, apparently:
Welcome to America, land of the spray-cheese. Australia doesn't seem so bad anymore, does it?
The Philippines were also pretty bad. They have this:
The worst that Australia has is this:
Yes. That is vegemite and cheese mixed together. -____-

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU AUSSIES?!
Seriously, vegemite and cheese? WHAT? WHAT? WHAT?
Cheese is a heavenly thing. You do not mix it just because you feel like it!
And vegemite is already plenty awful like that. No need to add it to something else. But seriously I don't think we can call this things cheese. Is there milk in the ingredients ?
No idea. I'm guessing it's cheese spread with vegemite flavouring, or something. Not actual cheese.
I've never eaten it. I mean, when I was growing up I knew some of my classmates made cheese-and-vegemite sandwhiches but I always thought that was disgusting so I've never tried it. It's not that popular here. -_-
But it's not that different from Peanut butter and jam and other weird mixes other countries have.
Vegimite is something you need a very long time until you start to appreciate it. I was only in Australia 6 months :-))
DUDETTE, I SO DON'T DO THAT! OTHERS DO!
VEGEMITE WITH CHEESE IS WORSE! It's like, jam with cheese or potato with candy. MAKES NO FREAKIN' SENSE!
Actually jam with cheese can be very good. It just have to be something else than the products shown above.
The goat cheeses in particular, so it's more often eaten with honey.
But I have also eaten a hot camembert with a red fruit jam and it was delicious
I can imagin that some hard pastry like the gruyère or the comté which are already very fruity cheesy go also well with jam
