Cheese Recommendations

I am dedicating this section to the cheeses I have tried and loved. Of course, we know you can't go wrong with the St. Agur, the Parm-Reg, the Goat Gouda, but have you tried….

Cotswold. I can't say this is a cheese for every taste or every moment. It is a yellow English cheese reminiscent of cheddar, but with chives interspersed throughout. It is superb on sandwiches that feature bacon or melted onto fat burgers, or served alongside a hearty stew, as I recommend with the Stout Beef Stew.

Fromage d'Affinois. This stuff is da' bomb. A french brie-like cheese made from cow's milk, it is perhaps the creamiest and butteriest I have ever come across. A must for parties! Your guests will devour it and look adoringly at you, like you're a hero or something. Find it at Whole Foods.

Mountain Gorgonzola. This is a sweeter gorg than those we might be used to, but it is creamy and wonderful. Spread it on some bread and consume with wine.

"Robusto"? I mentioned this in my reply to Stacy's request for salad options. This cheese is like a cross between Manchego and Parmesan, with a saltiness that is more reminiscent of Romano. I got it on special at Whole Foods and it was SO good we ate it in two days (usually I have hunks of cheese lurking in these cheese drawer for weeks…loved, but forgotten).

Shelburne Falls Cheddar, Aged 2 years: This can only be found locally, I believe, but it is a really complex and savory cheddar. I'm not usually a cheddar person, but I was craving a grilled cheese with tomato the other day and this what I reached for. When melted over bread, this cheese is a creamy and tangy dream.
