Cheese- Yes, No, Maybe so?

I have been inspired by the Confessional Thread, so I made a topic about cheese.

Love it, hate it, or otter? If otter...do explain further. So that I may beat all cheese lovers with a hard stick made of...wood. Um...yes.

There is no duck option. Weep tears of blood! (?)

Because cheese killed the duck. What does that say about cheese, hmm? It's so not hot like a box.

(I hate cheese, as maybe you can tell. But there's certainly no...cheese-hating bias here...Nope, none of that...)

I'm lactose intolerant, so, if I've had my pill.

"What's wrong with Wensleydale?"

I like cheese quite a bit.

It's only the very food of the gods! (Or one of them.)

Mozzarella on pizza. Smoked gouda on rosemary crackers. Cheddar on a bacon burger or eggs or broccoli. Feta in salads (pasta or otherwise.) Ricotta in lasagna. Parmesan in homemade alfredo sauce. Provolone or swiss on a sandwich. Asadero, queso quesadilla, and many others in Mexican food. Paneer in Indian food. A good goat cheese on artisan bread. Freakin' fondue!

The list goes on.

No cheese with wine? You disgust me.

I forgot to mention the wine with the cheese and crackers, so sue me! ;) Besides, wine could be had with several of those (or with anything really if you're sin verguenza..."I'd like some wine with my wine and cheese, kthnxbai!") so I left that to the imagination.

*Shakes head* We cheese lovers got to stick together, not tear each other down and let the fromagaphobics win. :razz:

Not really a fan of cheese. Mild cheese is alright and generally good if melted on pizza, jacket potato, toast etc.

I love certain types of cheese to the point that I will sit there with a hunk of cheese and a knife and just eat it. I'm not a fan of melted cheese for some reason. I refuse to eat bleu cheese, I can't put anything that smells like that in my mouth.

EDIT: for example, I wanted a snack one day, and I wandered around the supermarket for ages caues nothing appealed to me. I ended up with a wheel of Danish Havarti, with the packaging peeled back, biting into it like it were a cangy bar or something. Yum.

This phrase has been found to be, after being checked by an independent adjudicator, 100% correct.

I have a bit of a hard time with certain cheeses in a non-melted format, but a quick bout in the microwave can fix that.

And I loathe american cheese with an undying passion.

But other than that....hooray cheese of all kinds.

Ive tried quite a few cheeses. Favourite has to be Rambol with walnut.
Mascarpone with a sprinkle of sugar/honey/something sweet, since its practically the creamiest cream you can get, but its cheese. Great for mixing for cake fillings.
Cheddar for average applications. Port and cheese goes nicely too.

Sliced immensely processed and artificial rubber cheese sucks though.

p.s. i only recently found out the stuff on the outside of brie is actually an edible mould. I thought it just coated in something, not grown on it.

i got given a container of 'spray cheese' for my birthday this year (early present).
apparently the 'original american recipe' has emulsifier 339, thickener 1404 acidity regualtor 270 and a whole lot of things that i'm sure 'mom' never laid eyes on.
so sometimes i love cheese. but not from a can.

Not too fond of parmesan (the tastewise associations I get are too unpleasant) or moldy cheeses. But otherwise, yes.

Oh, and brown cheese is win, even though it's clearly a different product.

I will go cut pieces of cheese and munch on them when the mood takes me.

Has to be strong(ish) cheese though - non of that mild rubbish :P

I like:
Mozzarella
the various Swiss types
Feta
Ricotta

And I'll eat pretty much any cheese. Except the Italian kind with the live larvae (see Wikipedia).

I love cheese. It needs to be actual cheese though. I'm not willing to eat anything that has to specifically identify itself as food, i.e. "cheese food". None of that. No.

I will, however consume large quantities of Brie or Camembert with crackers and fruit. Feta cheese and tomato salad. Parmesan and romano on pasta or bread with plenty of garlic. A nice slice of pepper jack melted onto a fried egg sandwich. A knife and a chunk of mozzarella or muenster. Slice of sharp cheddar on hot apple pie.

Cheese is good stuff!

Muenster, any kind of Cheddar (depending on the situation), Gorgonzola, Smoked Gouda... Cheese is a good thing. Cheese and grapes together is awesome. Or cheese and apples, or cheese and any fruit. Homemade microwave nachos are perhaps the only good reason I still have a microwave. Romano > Parmesan. Whatever they put in Annie's macaroni and cheese. The provolone on a meatball sub. Blue cheese only in the context of buffalo sauce.

My grandfather taught me this. This makes apple pie go from amazing to full-blown, no holds-barred oh-my-god out-of-this-world.

I like my cheese how I like my barbarians, strong, sharp, smelly, and potentially lethal. I was going to compare to women but I've learned that yeast infections are not funny.

I love most cheeses, but I put "sometimes" because there are some that I really don't want anything to do with.

(I'm not fixing it. Cringe all you want grammar nazis!)

Only time I like American Cheese is when I eat it with hot dogs(somehow the immense amount of processing in both of them makes it taste better). Other than that, all cheese is amazing.

Yum, cheese craving. I'm going to go downstairs and get me a block of cheese and just snack on that for the rest of the day. Lunch is for non-cheese-lovers.

Yes. And the prim can be rather fantastic as well, especially if you get it fresh from some suitable place in the mountains. :)

I expected these results, sadly enough.

But I shall stay strong. Must not relinquish my hatred of cheese, for fear of much nausea and vomiting. A box upon cheese!

Except pizza cheese. Because I kind of love pizza. So yeah.
