    Parmigiano-Reggiano is reserved a special, untouchable, place of honor. After that, tough to choose, but probably Saint Marcellin, a cow's milk cheese from Dauphiné in France's Rhône-Alpes region.

    A close second would be Tomme de Savoie.

    A good Fresh Mozzarella.

    With Fresh summer tomatoes, fresh basil chiffonade, good olive oil and a real aged balsamic vinagar. Served with a nice crusty rustic Italian loaf.

    Summer on a plate.

    Agree with Warfish on this one.

    I'm lactose intolerant, but I still eat this... despite the after effects. :D

    I just want to say all of your suggestions so far have been awesome.

    I really believe all cheeses have their moment. A night like tonight, for example, calls for a smoked cheese or a baked triple-creme brie with sliced apples.

    Great thread.

    I have to go gorgonzola or blue cheese, then a nicely ripened goat cheese.

    Warm crusted goat cheese on a bed of greens and walnuts, light vinagrette :yes:

    Damn warfish, you nailed my favorite summer dish to an absolute tee. We grow our tomatoes and I have this three times a week.

    For favorite cheese, I used to get a swiss cheese from sweden that was soaked in Absolut vodka, but I can't find it here.

    Oh man, can't pick just one....A good Bleu, Stilton, Gorgonzola, Brie, Edam, Gruyere. Pretty much any good, non-processed crap.


    When my wife and I went to Quebec, it was great getting good, fresh, non-pasteutized/processed cheese and a loaf of bread and that was lunch.

    [QUOTE=Green Jets & Ham;3286619]Okay, on a serious note

    Appitizer: Mozzarella

    On a Sandwich: Swiss

    On my Pasta: [B]Parmisan [/B]or Romano, but I like Shredded and not Graded (powdery)[/QUOTE]

    Do this again, and we'll have words. :D It's where I'm from, Parma region. Here is the [I]King of Cheeses[/I], Parmigiano Reggiano.

    Pretty mild cheese eaters here. I actually like the cheaper cheeses compared to the more expensive "farmy" smelling cheeses aka "fromages du Raoul Duke".

    I wish I preferred cheap wine like I do cheap cheese.
