    Over lunch, I was just asking myself this question. I do truly love a good camembert. However, I managed to find myself some smoked cheddar yesterday (which I've never managed in a Dutch store before) and I have to say it was very tasty indeed!

    Lots of the runny french cheeses are great too! Just hard to get decent ones when you're not in France!

    Being of Swiss blood, I find myself salavating over cheeses of all types.. my current cannot-pass-up-purchasing-it-because-its-addicting-cheese is definitely Humbolt Fog. It's AMAZING.

    I had a very good fondue in Moléson, Switzerland a couple of years ago, and was very pleased when I found out my local grocery store actually sell Gruyères cheese. That's very good.

    As everyday cheese for sandwiches etc. I'm quite boring, and prefer Gouda, Jarlsberg, Edam and Emmental (and a Norwegian made variant simply called Sveitserost, i.e. Swiss cheese).

    There is also the good old Norwegian brunost, a sweet goat cheese which Norwegians eat in large quantities... ;)

    Camembert de Normandie (true Camembert :p ), Munster (not American munn-ster, it is "monn-stare", much different taste), Lou Pérac, Chaumes, and many MANY more.

    The one thing I love about my current location (France :D ) is all the fabulous cheese and wine I get to taste. To die for!

    Gouda! Imported from Holland.

    There is a little Dutch specialty store about 30 minutes from my house where you can get the 1/4 wheel of gouda cheese, it's super.

    Non-pasteurized milk makes real cheese ;)
    Yes, cheese = milk + bugs. Why the hell would you want to kill all the bugs before making the cheese :confused:

    Yes, I live in France and have access to a lot of different cheeses. Picking a "favourite" is close to impossible. Favourite what? Favourite runny? Favourite hard cheese? Favourite blue-cheese? Favourite goat-cheese?

    I do have a penchant for Beaufort, Fourme d'Ambert, St Marcellin & Ste Maure. :cool:

    The Australian and New Zealand governments have banned the sale of non-pastuerized cheeses at the behest of the big dairy groups so you can't great real cheese in australia. I think this is to ecourage the sale of plastic cheese, also I note that low fat cheese is becoming popular, but i think that just means you have no taste, as all low fat foods taste of nothing or something worse.

    Definitely not for the faint-hearted, no... Both my grandmother and mother appreciated gammelost and both the cheese' smell and texture are particularly nasty... ;)
