    So, it looks like there is some interest in that wonderful thing we call cheese. So, having said that, here is the MacRumors official cheese thread.

    I would have to say some of my favorite styles of cheese are; Brea, Blue, and of course extra sharp cheddar! Not to be outdone, but I also really like some goat cheeses that we have picked up over the years.

    Of course one cannot just have cheese alone, so if you have any pairings, whether it is with a good wine or beer! Please post those also........

    Humboldt Fog with an omelette in 1 hour. Delicious.

    I grew up in America and I have always loved cheese. My family ate many different kinds of cheese and I thought I had eaten some pretty good cheese until.....I ate French Cheese. French cheese (too many to name and many I can't remember the name) is absolutely wonderful. Cheese from other places that I do like are Gouda, Feta, and especially smoked Cheddar.

    One of my favorites!!!!! First tried it in Napa Valley during a wine tasting event me and the wife went on. Have loved it ever since.

    I have never had it in an omelette though!

    Feta cheese paired with sweet watermelon...that sweet and sour mix is wonderful.

    Strong Swiss cheese is great too and goat cheese with curry mix.

    Sounds like those combinations would give me issues. Just saying. But it sounds good.

    No.

    Cheese - especially good cheese - is one of the crowning glories of human civilisation and gastronomical culture.

    Agreed.

    I had a surprisingly decent Morbier the other day. I say surprising because the French cheese that is allowed into the US is almost uniformly bland and listless in comparison to what you get over there.

    Which the Feta+Watermelon or Goat cheese + Curry? Either one is really good, take a leap of faith ;)

    The Goat Cheese and Curry. I'll take a leap of faith straight to the bathroom. Lol. But I trust your judgement.

    Ripe tomatoes, watermelon, feta, and mint is definitely a favorite salad of mine!

    Smoked Gouda is my absolute favorite cheese. I could eat it with anything!

    I like provolone too (I'm a fan of just about any white cheese, actually), but it can't top the creamy, sharp taste of gouda.

    No argument there, but Gouda on a philly cheesesteak just sounds so bloody wrong. :p

    It does in theory, but I bet it'd be awesome in practice. :D

    What a great thread!
    I have lived for many years in Switzerland, so my favorite cheese: Comte Sainte Antoine, Gruyere, Appenzeller, Emmenthaler...

    Extra mature cheddar is a favourite. Goes well on anything. Especially on toast.
    Used to have a goergous smoked goats cheese as well.
    Sadly these days I don't see much cheese action as I'm downsizing!

    I agree with you.

    I was just milking the word for its humorous ambiguity.
