    If you go to the Dells, stop at one of the Carr Valley Cheese factories.
    Cheese curds so fresh they squeak.

    Re: Cheese

    Basic types:
    1. Pepper Jack/Hot pepper
    2. Colby-Jack
    3. Sharp Cheddar
    4. Swiss (on burgers, not by itself)

    Cottage cheese: Small curd. Generic/store brands tend to be surprisingly tasty for the price.

    Another level: Anything that's remotely Amish-authentic. Recent personal favorite variety: Horseradish (not sure of the "base cheese" it uses, but — I don't actually care )

    Re: Cheese

    Sometimes I allow myself to give my restaurant and food consulting to local business free of charge. After a recent visit to The Cheese Shop of Des Moines, I gave the guy with a beard some advice on how to lose the image of the snobbiest place in town. First he can change the name to Tiendo Del Queso to try to widen the market and add some ethnic flair to the curb appeal. Adding a classic Ro-Tel and Velveeta appetizer instead of the fondue special would add some of the "simpler is better" philosophy to the overcomplicated tasting menu.

    Re: Cheese

    If anyone's ever near Ashland, Ohio they should stop by grandpa's cheese barn. I'm not a huge cheese person but they have a ton of options and it's really good.

    Re: Cheese

    Story time.

    Went a visited a place in Italy that made parmigiano reggiano.

    You always hear about how the Italians are lazy but not these guys. 3 guys run the whole thing. They make over 100k a year. They each only get one day off a week.

    Only cheese made in this region can be called parmigiano reggiano.









    They use to have to turn each one of these by hand. They now have a machine that goes up and down the aisle constantly flipping them.

    I thought you had already shared those photos of the cheese in Italy.

    When going with the good ol' American processed cheese, one has to go with the Velveeta slices over Kraft.
