    American cheese

    This thread will ignore anything stringy, plasticky, or aimed at children or cooking.

    Cheese is very wonderful and I have no doubt there are producers in America whose product would please me. I've never seen it though.

    My suspicion is that the volume produced nationally is trivial, that it's a specialist commodity, that it's difficult to find for most Americans. I'd be interested to hear the actuality from those who shop there and like cheese.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Re: American cheese

    Here is an article on some of the cheese produced in Colorado.
    I think it's a good read.

    A couple of my former co-workers moved to a farm near my home a few years ago and began raising Goats.
    They have recently entered the cheese-making arena here and will offer up the results of their efforts in a local competition.

    In our travels, we have come across several local Cheesemakers and found some very nice stuff.
    I doubt that American cheeses will ever make the world Market in volume, and I am not thinking that to be a bad thing.

    We were recently in Maine, and found a couple of goodies there, as well.

    I'll enjoy reading those later this evening.

    Would you describe these proper cheeses as specialist food, or as staples. Would a conventional hypermarket sell selections or would you have to look harder?

    One must search the local specialty grocers and such mostly. Though some of the Big Box Grocers are getting into offering local specialty cheeses and other delicacies here in Colorado.
    Can't say for the rest of the country. The stores I shopped on our recent road trip haven't picked up on that idea, just yet.

    Only the Americans could come up with the notion of Spray-On Cheese.

    the only thing we don't have here is raw cheese. You have to make it yourself and I'm willing to try it. I make my own butter why not raw cheese (what could go wrong) I only eat locally made cheese and yoghurt . so I'm all good . Goats cheese, local triple brie, chedder etc . I'll eat camembert but only with quince jelly
