mature and vintage are versions of sharp, the longer it ages the sharper and more complex it gets

You lobbed up a softball on this one twa.

I have some kind of cheese in almost every dish I make, plus cheese to eat with crackers my favorite snack.

Me too, and I actually thought about making a cracker thread ūüėĄ...cheese & crackers has been my afternoon snack since I was a kid...it went into overdrive when I was trying to gain weight! Deviled ham on em too.¬†

Cheese is really food dependent. Like if we're talking eggs or things like omelettes, goat cheese is king.

 

In terms of overall versatility, Gouda is the best and now that I think of it, I don't know why I voted for Parmesan. Should have picked "Other".

I think a well-aged, nutty gruyere is the key ingredient in more of my favorite cheese dishes than any other cheese, so that's my choice.  

 

That said, there are few things more satisfying than a well-thought out and diverse cheese board.  I want them all...

Yeah, forgot about the smoked gouda. When I was in the hospital, hubby started buying it in big blocks. A nice chunk on the side of dinner is common now, I don't buy the slices anymore. 

 

This is my answer too.  I like all of the options listed except for cottage cheese.  But smoked gouda is my go to cheese.  Smoked cheeses are so great.

All cheeses are wonderful.  I offer a top 5, unranked.

 

Blue.  Gotta be really dank, tho.

Muenster.  Perfection on a turkey sandwich, melts perfectly.

Manchego.  Spanish charcuterie is everything.

Brie.  I like it creamy.

Whole Milk Mozz.  The perfect flavor delivery device.

 

Great list.  I feel like Parmesan deserves a spot in it though.  I don't get it very often because of the price, but it's so great in every usage.

 

We also need a list for New World cheeses so all of those amazing Mexican cheeses can get love.

Tough one, because cheese. I prefer Gouda or Brick cheese. 

 

Oooh, brick cheese, I haven't had this since we lived in Pennsylvania and we moved in '62.  A really good one!

Grana padano is pretty amazing. Gotta co-sign with Beal on manchego. Lately I've been making burgers with manchego, fig jam, caramelized shallots. The bomb.

There is no best cheese.  The merits of a cheese is dependent on what it is being used with.

 

That being said, if a single one had to be chosen, then Mozzarella is the correct choice, because it makes pizza.

Buffalo Mozzarella in a genuine insalata caprese is a steady part of my diet when I venture through Southern Italy. Unfortunately American fresh mozzarella is made from cow's milk. Good, but not the same.

My stepsister makes that (American buffalo though)

Sells well apparently, since she ain't giving much this way.
