I love cheese! Here in Houston it does not seem that cheese is the big deal. Our local supermarket has just upgraded the cheese section. It is still lacking. I am looking for some good American craft cheeses that you cheese lovers can recommend. Smelly is better. Cheese jokes are welcome.

I live in San Jose and north of us is the Marin French Cheese company which makes some outstanding Brie and Camenbert. The triple cream Brie is fantastic! I leave it sitting out for a couple days to let it get real ripe and tangy before I refrigerate it and then let it warm up before consuming it or microwave a sliver or two.
Also available on Amazon along with the Cambozola brand of cheeses with are also very good!

Just outside of Freeport Illinois is the Kolb Lena Cheese (no web site and they are now in trouble with the EPA) company that made better French cheese than the French. In fact James Beard used that cheese exclusively and because of that a French company bought them so now the cheese is made in Illinois shipped to France and then “imported” back. I used to go there when I lived in Illinois and buy their cosmetic seconds which were typically half price.

Of course way north of us it the Tillamook Cheese Company which has some very good cheddar! This is the company that sued for the rights to the name Tillamook for their cheeses as other companies in the same county were also using the name. Also on Amazon

Anoother good cheese company is Saga which makes some very good spreadable Blue cheese! Also available on Amazon

As you can tell you hit my sweet, or should I say cheese, spot.

It was a joke madts. But you can actually get cheese on ebay.

You might get a good deal on some slightly damaged Leerdammer.

Coming from you renners, I took it as such. But when I looked up cheese on EBay, whoa and behold, they do sell cheese.
Isn’t funny how some of the smallest things can backfire, even with the best intentions.

If you love the smell of cheese in morning, you should check out this bad boy…

I’d like to know what other names the marketing dept came up with before they settled on that.

Tillamook is good stuff, especially their pepper jack… yummm.

Cougar Gold is awesome stuff, too.

Bordens, yes the company that makes the glue, used to have a cheese called Liederkranz and I found again, it in of all places, at Etsy.

It is nearly a Limburger but has more tang and less smell (not in my wife’s opinion) and is very, very good!

Harzer roller cheese is a favorite on my cousins family in Germany but that is one cheese I DO NOT like and it is part of this recipe!
