Your favorite cheeses.
Prof: What's one major natural resource Wisconsin lacks?
Prof: Natural gas. There are no natural gas basins beneath the state of Wisconsin.
Prof: Alright. But what's one resource Wisconsin has that no one else does?
Prof: Come on guys...
Class: (unanimously) ...cheese?
(At which point everyone broke out in laughter. The real answer was water...Madison alone sits on the edge of 5 lakes, not to mention state borders on Lake Michigan and Superior).
So, in honor of the great product of my current state of residence, my current top 5 favorite cheeses:
1. Smoked Gouda
3. Harvati (cream-style)
4. Camembert or Brie
Most interesting cheeses of 2011:
1. Juustoleipä, aka 'bread cheese' (love this post just bc they mention Wegmans AND Carr Valley)
2. Stilton (tasted a bit like cheesecake, imo)
Some cheeses I would like to try:
2. Cave Aged Marisa
What are YOUR top 5 favorite cheeses?
[UPDATE: Cardona is fantastic (goat cheese)!]
