    Feta is great, especially if you make sure that it comes from south-easter Europe (here they sell some German-made feta which tastes like plastic bags).

    British people leave the butter at room temp. It's really best that way.
    Well, you need to use a lot of butter on a daily basis if you want to keep it at room temperature (or eventually you need an extremely cold room), otherwise it might become rancid in approx. 3 days - here they don't sell anything less than 100g a piece.

    hm, isnt Feta cheese originally from Italy?

    I hate it when they sell imitation of feta cheese based on bio oil.

    The one we have here (croatia ) is really good, though.

    Nope, it's from Greece : ) I guess the croatian version should be better than the italian one, since your culinary traditions are more balkan-ish

    Cheese is awesome! I like almost every kind except blue cheese - both the taste/smell and sight are offputting to me. Smoked cheeses are kinda iffy to me too, the smokiness detracts from the cheese flavour for me. Recently I've been eating a few blocks of fortina cheese which I really like and as a bonus, it's a lot cheaper than the other cheeses for some reason. I think it's maybe similar to gouda in taste? not sure, I haven't had gouda in a while. it's fairly hard and comes in wax.

    also particularly delicious are goat cheese and (less so) feta, brie, gouda, havarti, swiss, and this awesome sheep-cheese that I had once and could never remember the name. I've also discovered that while I find regular "old" chedder boring, extra old (2+ years aged) from balderson is awesome! Such a cool flavour. But almost every cheese is delicious

    I <3 cheese. I've tried a lot of different kinds, but not as many as I'd like. Honestly, the only types I really hate are velveeta, fake cheddar, and fake swiss. One of my biggest pet peeves is when I order a mushroom and swiss burger and they give me American Swiss.

    Couldn't possibly pick a favorite, but I love blue-ish, creamy cheeses (and cheeses that smell kinda bad but not terrible). Also, I am really craving...

    Tommorrow I'm going to buy some cheese, I've got a mind to buy about four or five different types, anyone want to suggest me some varieties I absolutely should try and I'll post about them here in this thread or a blog if I start one. Also anyone suggest any accompaniments or drinks to go with them? I know someone who slices apples with cheese and someone else who slices a pear with them.

    The stinkier the better! I love soft, fatty cheeses.
    I had dolphin yoghurt once in Italy. Maybe dolphin cheese could be an idea??

    I can seriously recommend this sort of cheese, I got some yesterday and opened it today, its much better on its own without crackers, toast or any sort of accompaniment, equally you'd not add any sort of fruit (some people eat apple, pear, cranberries or branston pickle with their cheese), just straight, there's even some cool info inside the box it comes in describing the maturation process of the cheese, so while you buy it straight in the middle between mild and strong you could let it become strong if you like!

    Awesome!

    Dutch (young) cheese, yummy.

    Smelly cheese, not so much. A lil bit on a toast sure, I'd bite. But I'm not too fond of most foreign cheeses.
