Get on the CHEESE WAGON! What's your favorite?

Answered on September 12, 2014

Cheese is yummy. There are many, many kinds of cheese.

What's your favorite?

Top 3?

Bonus points if you include where you buy it!

My current favorite is these little baby Bries they just started selling at Trader Joes. They come in little individually wrapped packages of buttery tasting, cheese filled goodness.

Top 3:

Baby Brie @ Trader Joes

Goat Cheese individual medallions @ Trader Joes

Kerrygold Aged Cheddar @ Costco

I can't even keep camembert in my house for more than an hour! My BF and I smear it with pate or creton (live in Quebec, obv) and eat the whole thing in one sitting. It's off the hook.

I am so loving St. Andre! 70% butterfat, yum! And a good parm, that you can shave and nibble, and Carr Valley Bread Cheese. and my runner ups are goat cheese/aged smoked gouda/smoked mozzerella.

Ask yourself. Do you eat meat? Do you hunt and gather 3 hours a day? If not you're not paleo. Dairy exclusion is a pretty low in priority especially if you're lactose tolerant. No point in recreating scenarios we've adapted out of over 500 generations.

Boursin is really easy to make, it was super popular for housewives to home-make in the 80's according to my mother! Look up "boursin garlic and herb" on google, it's super simple.

Parmigiano Reggiano can only be called that if it lives up to certain standards (there are D.O.C. laws), among those are that it is always made from raw grass fed milk and aged a minimum of 14 months. "DOC" and "AOC", translating in both cases roughly to "controlled origin", mean there are a set of laws the makers MUST follow in order to call something that. You can find this on wine, olive oil, cheese, etc and it's a way of protecting the quality of the product legally.

I like to stuff soft and savory cheeses in celery (organic really does taste better in celery), or smeared in to pitted olives cut in half (too lazy to cram in to holes!) Savory hard- I will eat cubes straight up, but if I want something to "hold" it a diagonal slice of a big carrot serves as a good cracker stand in, use a juicing carrot they are more fibrous, also jicima root slices Creamy and sweet- I love fruit and will eat it with berries dipped in or spread on pears (best way to eat goat ever for me) but I know some people don't do fruit.

Steph, I agree with Alex, from experience. In my particular case, probiotic yogurt (Wegman's Super Yogurt, specifically) cured my intolerance. If I eat half or one of the little cups of plain (to minimize sugar) every 2 or 3 days, I can eat as much cheese, milk, or ice cream as I want without trouble. It takes a week to kick in, and lasts about a week or two after you stop eating it.

Parlick Fell sheep's milk cheese @ Sainsbury's

get-on-the-cheese-wagon!--what's-your-favorite?

As you can see from the healthy eating nutrition wheel that Sainsbury's now puts on food products this cheese contains unhealthy (red segments) amounts of calories, fat, saturated fat and salt. It does however get a green segement for being low in sugar.

I like to make goat cheese and spinach omelettes with herb goat cheese. It is very delicious. Maybe you can trick your family into eating it that way, haha.

  1. Manchego (Spanish hard cheese, kinda like asiago with a hint of dry cherries... very good)
  2. Chevre (I get raw milk chevre from a local farmer)
  3. kerrygold irish cheddar

I only eat cheese maybe once a month or so (it doesn't play nice with me) so when I get it, I make sure to enjoy it.

Parmigiano Reggiano can only be called that if it lives up to certain standards (there are D.O.C. laws), among those are that it is always made from raw grass fed milk and aged a minimum of 14 months. "DOC" and "AOC", translating in both cases roughly to "controlled origin", mean there are a set of laws the makers MUST follow in order to call something that. You can find this on wine, olive oil, cheese, etc and it's a way of protecting the quality of the product legally.

I like to stuff soft and savory cheeses in celery (organic really does taste better in celery), or smeared in to pitted olives cut in half (too lazy to cram in to holes!) Savory hard- I will eat cubes straight up, but if I want something to "hold" it a diagonal slice of a big carrot serves as a good cracker stand in, use a juicing carrot they are more fibrous, also jicima root slices Creamy and sweet- I love fruit and will eat it with berries dipped in or spread on pears (best way to eat goat ever for me) but I know some people don't do fruit.

I am spoiled, Sweet Grass Dairy is nearby so I can get their cow and goat cheeses easily, I can even go to their adorable storefront. It has become my default cheese, after all who wouldn't want cheese from a place where you can go visit the cows and goats? You can also order here link text

I love chevre - the soft goats cheese They make and aged hard cows cheese that is salty and lovely called Lumberjack And my classic is the green hill, a nice soft creamy cheese with lovely flavor. It is actually served at a local bar and has become a regular indulgence.

I don't do cheeses myself any more, mostly because I currently have some unusual weight loss goals, but I do love the stuff.

Stilton - the moldier the better, but bad for my penicillin allergy. Gives me wild dreams though.

Brillat-Savarin - for the triple creme experience.

Goat -- Any. Sheep cheeses are bland, goat rocks.

I also make a baked brie to die for, with fresh thyme and wine-sauteed wild mushrooms.

Amablu Blue Cheese or Gorgonzola (from Minnesota). Yeah, I really like blue cheese!

Grass-fed Gouda at the outlet of my local dairy (think it's from Wisconsin, don't know the name of the brand, some regional co-op sort of thing).

I am just eating the occasional dessert: goat cheese in blueberries from Trader JOe's. DElicious!

I love bries, especially when I can find extra creamy. I buy in Trader Joe's often. I like gouda and emmental sometimes (they are sweeter).

I LOVE smoked cheese, like smoked gouda, or (what I just bought in TJ) Danish smoked.

I don't eat cheese that often, it's more of a dessert for me.

Has to be port salut or paysan breton.

One is a lovely mild commercial french cheese.

The other is a gorgeous cream cheese that is almost like cheese mousse. I can get it anymore though..:(

Check out the awesome quote from paysan breton's website:

"Fat and health, what about cholesterol? The reproaches made in terms of butter, unfortunately, often overshadow its nutritional qualities. It is often accused of "making you fat", "containing cholesterol" and "too rich in saturated fatty acids that increase cholesterol and favour cardiovascular diseases???. But we now know that reality is a little more complex than that: if excess fatty acid can increase cholesterol (cholesterol rate), each fatty acid does not have the same impact and opinions on some fatty acids are in the process of changing, especially for myristic acid which increase the amount of good cholesterol (HDL)."

Since going paleo/primal (and noticing which cheeses give me a "gluggy throat" and which ones seem to be fine) I have developed a fondness for:

pecorino as a ewes' milk alternative to parmesan

Roquefort from France for a ewes' milk alternative to blue cheeses - especially since when made traditionally it's also raw and limestone "cave-ripened" (even from conventional supermarkets)

and "washed-rind cheeses" for when I want to indulge in a bit of fancy pasturised cows' milk dairy purely for the stanky-ripe-deliciousness factor, for example Munster from France (or Kapiti's Ramara for a local NZ version, though it benefits greatly in pungency and flavour from further aging in your fridge).

Gotta say, it was hard to narrow the list to three... what with goat's chevre, feta, halloumi, smoked harvarti, buffalo mozarella, ash-coated or truffle-layered brie, etc, etc.. dang, there I go! ;)

Ask yourself. Do you eat meat? Do you hunt and gather 3 hours a day? If not you're not paleo. Dairy exclusion is a pretty low in priority especially if you're lactose tolerant. No point in recreating scenarios we've adapted out of over 500 generations.

1- Vintage Gouda... Rich, smokey, butterscotch flavor with little crystals (Netherlands) 2- l'Etivaz... Hard, strong, aged alpine cheese, kinda like frigate but stronger and better (France or maybe Switzerland) 3- Brie de meaux... Best Brie ever (France) 4- Grey owl ash rind goat cheese from Quebec (Canada) 5- Blossom's blue... Rich, creamy, mild but spicy blue from BC (Canada) 6- I'm not sure... There are WAY too many amazing choices

Always purchased at a little cheese boutique called Benton Brothers. Bonus: most of the cheeses are made with raw milk from pastured cows :-)

I don't do cheese anymore due to acid reflux that dairy causes. I used to be a Kerrygold Dubliner addict, but I loved all sorts of cheese from parm to blue.

I think what we crave from cheese is the L-Tyrosine, which if you have a little tiny bit of, you'll notice a cheese like taste. I tried this because of Home made Powerdrive. which is a recovery formula. Here's a review of it.

This might be worth looking at if you crave cheese.
