What's the best cheese and why is it parmigiano reggiano?
>>
ive started using swiss in just about every meal that requires cheese. i fucking hated it as a kid, but i really dont buy any other cheese these days.

maybe dubliner on occasion, mostly because my father brings it up and it reminds me to get it
>>
>>7037810
swiss is pretty damn good.
>>
I'm big fan of pepper jack. Sure, it's not refined but it gives a sandwich some kick.
>>
>>7037815
someone recommended it to me once for an omelette, and i liked it better than regular cheddar or gouda or grated parm.

havent tried making a grilled cheese yet though, might be too strong.
>>
Gruyere is my current favourite.

Hard cheese > soft cheese

I am also quite fond of Gruyère. I find it goes best with mild meats such as ham.

This is my current favourite cheese.
>>

What is pecorino, Alex?
>>
>>7037765

depends what you use the cheese for

parmesan is great on pasta, but not my favorite as the main cheese on pizza, let alone a burger or a sandwich.

English mature cheddar.
Had that shit most my life, moved to another part of Europe and miss that shit so much.
It's my favorite because it is the only cheese i feel can be eaten in both ways, on a platter on it's own, or mixed in with other foods.

yeah but do you use the same cheese on pizza, pasta, burgers, tortillas and sandwiches?

No such thing. There are cheeses made by the Swiss, and Alpine cheeses such as Emmentel which "Swiss cheese" is loosely based on but no "Swiss Cheese".

Man, this thread is making me embarrassed to be an American right now.

"Swiss Cheese" as you are referring to is just a typically low quality imitation of an Alpine Cheese (Made in either Switzerland, France, or Italy) that has been produced outside of those places (Finlandia, Jarlsberg, or generic US Swiss cheese).

I like me some mozzarella.
Camambert is also really good but a bit too expensive.

Is the mature cheddar the orange one or the white light coloured one with a parmesan texture?

In different stores I see them named both ways.

Appenzeller is my favourite atm, just a shame it's so hard to get the proper stuff in the UK

on a different note, what is the "swiss" cheese that >>7037810
>>7037815 refer to?
>>
>>7038788
Both. The white ones are better. They aren't always dry either. Here in England, some really strong tasting cheddars are served relatively moist in the shops.
>>
>>7038791
American emmental cheese

>>7038543
I came to this thread to see this logical comment and the inevitable butthurt that ensues

Why so much asspain, /ck/? Next you'll start ranting that sargento garbage from Wisconsin has a direct line of apostolic succession to JEEBUS and anyone who doesn't have a taste for garbage "cheese" hates America* and has literally never even set foot here

Let me guess, you live in some third world shithole with the scraps labelled as "Cheddar".
>>
>>7038807
You need a shitload of milk to make a tiny bit of cheese and most 'good' cheese needs to age for months.

It's just expensive to produce.
>>
>>7038807
very specific recipes/manufacturing process

hard to replicate cheaply by other generic companies so the makers can charge what they want

Yes both are cheddars but I meant which one is the mature and which one is the fresh?
I too like the whiter one better.

>>7038803
There's some good cheese from the south. Virginia and Georgia both have some respectable cheeses.

I'm from the Northeast, which the Wisconsin Internet Defense Force can't decide if it's part of Europe and thus evil, or part of Wisconsin. Sometimes we're even considered the South, or California.

I'd just like to interject for moment. What you're refering to as "Swiss Cheese", is in fact, GNU/Cheese, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Cheese. Swiss Cheese is not a cheese unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning cheese system made useful by the Switzerland, France and Italian system components comprising a full cheese based OS as defined by American Cheese Society.

parmigiano reggiano is fucking brilliant because it compliments or makes so many Italian dishes great. I couldn't eat it on its own however.
>>
>>7038813
Cheddar is great imo because it has so much variety. It's actually really nice if you get a good strong crumbly cheddar but that is surprisingly hard to find outside the UK. A friend in Italy gave me some goats cheese and actually asked me to bring him some cheddar back the next time I flew out.

Gruyere is the best hard yellow, hands down.

for general use id say cheddar.

Conditional to application. I too love parmesan, but on popcorn or pasta, not in a sandwich. I love cheddar, but not on pasta. Well, unless its cheddar sauce to be stirred into specific, bite sized shapes of pasta. I'll top certain pizzas with blue cheese varieties (like if onion is involved), but I won't crumble blue cheese over popcorn.. mostly for practical reasons. Still, cheese application is conditional, much like hot sauces.

You can get a shit ton at costco for a lot less than other stores.

Manchego is god tier. I tried some recently that is made in the United States (yes, I'm aware it isn't technically Manchego. It is called Sole Gran Queso). Pretty good stuff. I still prefer real manchego but having the option to buy a domestically produced substitute for a lot cheaper is nice
>>
>>7042207
Delicious with balsamic reduction.
>>
>>7042264
Toast some crusty bread and brush it with balsamic reduction and eat with manchego and Serrano ham.

I could eat this shit everyday

I fuckin' love manchego. Queso Iberico is also pretty damn great. Few things compare to a manchego and mortadella sandwich on a good crusty roll that you leave in a car in the sun so it gets all melty.
