I'm on a bit of a CHEESE hype right now. Eating a lot, adding it to meals, trying different ones out. Are you a cheese fan? What cheese/cheese&food recommendations would you share? Favourite cheese?

Dandy* where you at?

Feta in a salad is a big lunch favourite. Recently trying goats cheese as an alternative.

Brie and crackers always a MOMENT.

Can't beat cheddar on anything..

What else do I need to try?

Discovering fried halloumi changed my life. Just so delicious, and squeaky.

Also love red Leicester cheese melted on toast, and a good hunk of Jarlsberg is also delicious. I'd also love to try Stinking Bishop cheese (fermented with pears, dubbed the "smelliest cheese"), but it's not too easy to come by.

Cheese is love cheese is life.

Toasted cheese sandwiches, macaroni cheese and cauliflower cheese are all life. I know I have a miracle maker on my hands when the latter concoction can actually make me enjoy a vegetable. Halloumi was my latest cheese discovery at Nando's and it was pretty tasty, would have again.

Educate us all on how to do cheese please.


Well firstly, here are some of my favourites:

SAINT AGUR



A creamy blue cheese from France that is readily available in supermarkets these days. I used to run cheese tastings at work and this one nearly always won, people were always amazed that you could get it so easily - now, an essential tip for buying it, never get the pre-packed ones! Instead, go for a wedge from the deli counter in the supermarket as it is significantly nicer...


FLEURICREME



This is a Hennart cheese that you often(ish) find in delis, I don't think I've ever seen it anywhere else so it may need to be sought out... It's an incredibly creamy cheese and you need to leave it out for a while to really soften up but when it has then it is delicious - something that even the vaguest of cheese fans seem to get on board with, you'll need some bread or crackers to scoop this one up with.


OASSAU IRATY



This is a hard cheese, one of the sheep varieties I believe. If you can do such things, you need to eat the rind with this one as it has a has a really nutty texture that compliments and permeates into the cheese itself. It's reasonably similar to an emmental or gouda (both of which are also yummy).


MONTGOMERY



This is a type of cheddar and is my current favourite, available in lot of specialist cheese shops but they do also stock think slices of it in Waitrose. It's an extra mature cheddar and is quite pure in the central bits, more musky around the edges as it will have been wrapped in muslin and again that will permeate into the edges of the cheese.


TRUFFLE BRIE



So this is pretty much exactly what it says it is. It's a ripe brie with a layer of truffle in the centre and it is frankly divine, I have to limit myself to just having it at christmas or I'd probably never stop eating it! Another that you need to leave out for a while before consuming but it's so worth it.


Cambozola



Last one for now and another that you can readily get in the supermarkets... possibly quite a 70s cheese but I still like it today, it's essentially a blue brie and I've always assumed it takes its name from being a cross between camembert and gorgonzola - whatever reason, it's yummy and tends to be another favourite with pretty much everyone.

Stinking Bishop is rubbish. It does smell but it barely tastes of anything.

Oh and for a really simple snack, bake some asparagus spears for about 17 minutes total, pop some slices of gruyère over the top of them for the final few minutes to melt over them. Yum!

This! Brie is delicious! The hard crust and soft interior texture contrast is fab too!
