All About Cheese

Everything you need to know about eating and cooking with curds

Recently the gang at SEHQ shared a round-up of favorite cheeses. Turns out we're not too refined in our taste. We love our mozzarella, feta, and goat cheese, what can we say. Some of you were shocked at how pedestrian our choices could be. "My current cheese drawer is ten times more interesting than this list and it's pretty frickin boring," said one reader.

Ouch, but we'll admit, it wasn't the most impressive, show-offy list. It was just a genuine handful of cheeses that we love to eat, not really factoring in the splurge cheese shop purchase of Epoisse de Bourgogne or Jasper Hill Farms Winnimere.

This time around, we're living up to the "serious" of our name. We're stepping it up with these lesser-known, very rare, very hard to find, sometimes nearly impossible to find (unless you know a guy who knows a guy who knows a cat) varieties. Apologies in advance if it makes us sound like a bunch of cheese snobs.
