    Someone on another thread mentioned Flower Marie cheese which I had never heard of. What's your favourite cheese and how do you eat it?

    I only eat Cheddar - I have cheese on toast every morning for breakfast.

    I know that sounds like something from Monty Python but it happens to be true.

    Roquefort, Torta di Dolcelatte, goat's cheese, Wensleydale Blue - with any decent bread and oddles of wine.

    Do you vary the cheddar or is it always the same one?

    There are so many cheeses I like that it is difficult to identify a favourite.

    However, smoked cheese, Norwegian Brunost, Stilton would too the list.

    No- actually I like several kinds of cheddar but we're not allowed to advertise on here.

    My taste in Chedder is very discerning.

    Usually it's the one on offer at Tesco's

    There is one, however that is so awful that I would never consider buying it.

    ...Cathedral S****Y - it's just horrid - has no taste and an awful texture.

    I like most cheese. I am particulalty fond of Geitost. I first came across it when Youth Hostelling round Norway as a student.

    Gjeitost cheese, also spelled as ‘Geitost’ and pronounced as ‘Yay-Toast’, is a farmhouse and creamery, semi-hard cheese. It is so popular in Norays that it is also called as Norway’s national cheese!

    During old times, Gjeitost or Geitost used to be entirely of goat milk but now-a-days it is made with a blend of goat’s and cow’s milk. During its making process, liquid whey is used instead of the curd. It is available in various versions and the classification depends on different proportions of cow and goat milk.

    Dark brown or honey-brown or golden orange in colour, the cheese is non-perishable, dessert cheese sold in blocks. It has sweet and caramel-like taste and comes with an unusual, aromatic quality. Kids in Norway eat it as a breakfast as well. It is sliced paper-thin and placed on Norwegian flat bread. Its swee caramel flavour is simply irresistible!

    I had some once. I thought it was vile! But otherwise I like all nice quality cheeses, but not the ones with stuff mixed in. We have cheese every Friday. I'm always happy to try something new.

    I like Brie de Meaux but only if it's suitably runny


    This is the minimum acceptable in terms of runniness (?).

    And it has to smell awful too, bien sûr.

    Ewwww to many of those. I have strict cheese rules. Very mild and fresh (cream cheese, ricotta, mozzarella etc). Or hard cheese but nothing stinky. Brie is stinky and it just escalates from there.

    Blue cheese is the work of the devil.

    My Saturday job as a teenager was in a delicatessen. I scraped down and rewrapped the cheese counter's offerings most weeks. Scarred me for life.

    I've just looked at the ones mentioned. Comte is nice. So is mozzarella. I like red leicester, gruyere, and jarlsberg too. I miss devon oke. Haven't had that since my gran died as not one I can get here.
