Investigate the World of Gourmet Cheese

From American artisanal cheeses to the finest European cheeses which are still being made in the traditional way, using recipes often dating back a 1000 years or more - there is a cheese for every taste, for every occasion. In fact, hosting a cheese tasting party or creating an elegant cheese course to complete your next dinner party are just some of the ways to enjoy cheese.

These days many fine cheeses are available in most supermarkets.

And that is partly because American cheesemaking has grown over the past 30 years into a booming artisan industry.

But if you want to go beyond the everyday choices, I'll recommend some outstanding sources you can visit online to order specialty cheeses to try at home, to pair with wines, champagnes or with ales and beers - to use in recipes or to send as gifts. Ideas for Cheese Platters (like this photo of a French Cheese Platter) and easy examples showing you how to create the Ultimate Cheese Course will be part of this website.

I hope you'll become a regular visitor to the Gourmet Cheese Detective website and that you'll share your comments, gourmet cheese reviews and recommendations, recipes and questions with all of us! Thanks for checking us out.

like aspirin and aches, or June and moon,
or good people and noble ventures..."
