Cheese is one of the yummiest milk products of all. There are so many different types of cheese ranging differentiated with their texture, flavors and forms. The taste of the cheese also varies with the animal’s milk used – cow, buffalo and goat. We all know that the longer a wine is preserved, the tastier it is. But here is one more product that gets tastier the longer its stays and that is cheese! So, what is cheese? Spoilt milk! Milk is curdled and then processed in to cheese. It is known for its fat content, protein and long life. Herbs and spices and even smoke of the wood are used for flavoring the cheese.

Parmesan cheese is an extra-hard cheese that originated from Italy. They are straw colored and have a rich taste and are dry in texture. Parmesan tastes best when it has aged for a minimum period of 12 – 16 months. They are made in abundance in countries like Italy, United States, Australia and Argentina. Parmesan with its granular texture is usually grated to be used in food. Like the parmesan cheese, cheddar cheese is also hard and they are of yellow or off-white color. Their origin is from English village cheddar which provided the constant temperature and the right temperature to manufacture cheese and thus the name. It is the most popular cheese in England and the second most popular one in United States. Though it is hard, it has a nature to be mellow and it melts in the mouth. They have different strengths depending on their period of mature and artificial preservatives used. They are mild, medium, strong, sharp; vintage, etc. mozzarella is the most popular cheese is the United States. They are originate from Italy and a made from buffalo’s milk. A fresh mozzarella is pure white in color and is semi-soft in texture. They taste their best when consumed the same say they are made but can be preserved in air tight bags for a longer time and there are mozzarella’s that has only a semi-moisture content that can be kept for as long as six months. Different kinds of mozzarellas are used for Pizzas and pasta dishes.

Blue cheese is another famous type of cheese but as the name suggests it is not blue in color! This form of cheese was supposedly found by accident. The story of it is that an unfortunate wine maker threw a partially eaten chunk of rye in the cheese caves. When he came several days later to find a mold covering the bread had turned in to cheese, instead of tossing it as he should have, he tasted the cheese and thus blue cheese was discovered! Blue cheese has a distinctive vein pattern; this comes by injecting oxygen in to the cheese as the blue mold that is present in the cheese requires oxygen to flourish. Gouda cheese is another variety that is made with cow’s milk and it is orange in color. This cheese has been named after a city in Netherlands called Gouda and tastes a little sweet. They are semi-hard in nature and their aging period is from one month and goes to as many as thirty six months. The less-aged cheese is a little soft and the more it ages, it gets harder and saltier. Feta cheese is traditionally made in Greece. They are soft white brined cheese that are crumbly in nature and are largely produced in blocks. Feta will be an excellent ingredient to use for salads.
