Cheese 3


captainamerica | Aug 14, 2014 03:18 AM

I am new to cheese. Well, I didn't like it ten years ago, so didn't eat any.
Now, I have started tasting the stuff and like it quiet a bit. Then every now and then I go nibble at a cheese from wholefoods and give up on the idea of eating cheese.

Here is what I like so far, Parmesan (2004). I liked a Parmesan served at fugo de chao, but the one from wholefoods didn't taste like the one I had at fugo de caho.
I also like pepper jack cheese. I also like blue cheese, at least the one served with chicken wings.

I tried brie cheese once and felt like throwing up.

Now, how do I get started and understand the different cheeses? So, I can see a cheese and know, oh I might like that. I probably should stay away from this one ...

To recap, a cheese novice, with no idea of what is out there. Willing to experiment, but would like a place to start my experiments with a little bit more than random experiments which have failed. I might even like the cheese, but maybe I didn't expect the flavor when I picked it up at whole foods. Also, don't understand the hard vs soft vs whatever else is out there classification.
