Bored With Cheese?

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Talking Points: Bored With Cheese? Anyone who has perused a deli market understands how confusing the cheese categories have become. The choices appear endless. Cheese can be aged for months, hand-rubbed with robust Italian spices, shelf-cured for optimal quality, or made with passion from a local dairy. Who knew? I recently picked up a β€œcheese flight” of three Wisconsin varieties. I loved the description detailing the best pairing options for fruits, nuts, and beverages. Not only is it a great way to try mild or robust cheeses, it turns a charcuterie board into a win, win for the night.

  1. “BORED with cheese!??” This title suggested you were going to diss cheese as boring and supply an alternative. Thankfully, it was misleading and you introduced anything BUT boring cheeses.
    The longest aisle in our Kroger (that is the one that takes me the longest to pass through) is by the cheese deli! A complete counter of a multitude of omnifarious culinary bovine provisions to tempt the tastebuds! And on rare occasions, we break open our safe and purchase some of the delicacies.
    When we get to Heaven, apparently, we won’t be able to eat beef, but it will be hard for it to be Heaven if we can’t milk the cows and make cheese. πŸ˜‹

  2. Never bored with cheese at all. Most of all not in our area where you get all varieties of cheese and have so many options to use it. When I think about it, I am eating cheese on a daily basisπŸ˜„
