    Wensleydale and cranberries (especially the one sold in the Co-op).
    Doux de Montagne (discovered in M & S).
    Buffalo Mozarella.
    Cheddar (medium), Lancashire (creamy and crumbly)and Cheshire.

    Can't abide Goats' cheese. Even the smell is revolting. It smells like wet goat fur. I once ordered poutine in London and they brought me a bowl with about 10 chips dotted with 6 tiny slivers of what should have been cheese curds but turned out to be goats' cheese.

    Is that a poached egg with cream cheese inside or is the whole thing a cheese in itself? It sure looks mouthwatering and delicious.

    I absolutely love Boursin!! Anything garlic or herb based and I'm right in there.

    [​IMG] Torta del Casar
    Torta del Casar is a cheese made from sheep's milk in the Extremadura region of Spain. It is named after Casar de Cáceres, its city of origin. The milk is curdled using a coagulant found in the pistils of the cardoon, a wild thistle. Wikipedia

    That looks like Spanish Tortilla.

    Strong cheddars, black bomber is a favourite amongst many.
    Stilton is fab, son brought some Shropshire blue at Christmas that was great too.
    Gorgonzola, with a lovely tanginess to the flavour, similarly Rocquefort.
    Brie de Meaux as long as it's suitably runny as pointed out earlier, likewise Epoisses.
    Wensleydale, though there is much that is disappointing about.
    Reblochon for cheese sauce and tartiflette.
    Tellagio, an Italian one they do at Waitrose.
    Parmesan and Parmigiano-Reggiano.

    I like most strong cheeses and blue and runny ones. Mild cheese is pointless, like edible plastic. I don't see the point of cheese with other stuff in it either when you can add chutney or similar.

    Epoisse. I think Lurk told me about it. Stilton and Cheddar and Brie but since only I eat it and I have to control my eating and I like biscuits I rarely eat cheese.

    Who here is a chutney fan? And if so what is your favourite chutney?

    I have a penchant for anything that is from the Baxters brand. Their caramelised onion and victorian chutney is amazing. I should work for Baxters...I would do overtime for free sampling all their stock.

    I do not like branstons chutney/pickle though..its too crunchy.

    I also like to eat picallili. I know it looks acidic but I love it... I'm also a sucker for pickled onions and shallots!!

    Extra-mature cheddar with a hint of crystals. Canadian cheddar, with its burn. Remember Black Diamond, anyone? The only foreign cheddar worth eating.

    Where to start? Anywhere but with with the rubbery nonsense of edam or the waste of space that is "mild" cheddar.

    Cheddar should not be put in Room 101. Cheddar with crystals in it sounds mysterious

    It's the same as what happens with parmesan. Perhaps someone would be kind enough to explain the science for me.

    My taste in cheese is a bit boring I guess...Red Leicester or Cheddar. Other half has more European tastes...Gouda,Edam and Mozzarella.

    Parmesan always smells like sweaty socks to me...I can't bring myself to eat it.

    It might smell of sweaty socks but it tastes of cream and grass.

    I read this as fruit bats originally! That would be a weird cheese.

    I can't imagine having toasted cheese for breakfast. It's a lunch or supper did to me.

    I discovered smoked mozzarella on a pizza a while back. Delicious!

    It really shouldn't.

    Halloumi! I love its weird squeakiness, the saltiness and the way it goes crispy on the outside when fried or grilled.

    At the risk of introducing a snake into paradise (because cheese is my paradise) there are a lot of European cheeses here. Is Brexit going to adversely affect cheese supply and price because I think cheese might be more important than democracy itself.
