Baked brie with roasted garlic in a bread bowl.  So good!  You dip pieces of bread or crackers in it.  The downside?  Garlic breath.

I don't think there's been a kind of cheese that I've tried and didn't like.  Other favorites are extra sharp cheddar, goat cheese, blue cheese, muenster, mozzarella, and homemade farmer's cheese.

Hmmmmm

During a recent food tour in Italy we were given a Riccota Lemon and a saffron flavored cheese to try amongst others. The saffron was great but the lemon ricotta had us swooning. I've tried researching availability in the states but can't find it. Has any one come across this? It's thick ricotta that can be sliced.

I found Provolone Manteche yesterday while shopping at Sam's club.

It is an aged provolone with fresh butter in the center. http://www.mandifoods.com/shop/item.aspx?itemid=22

Serving instructions from the website: "To serve slice the cheese into wedges to include both the Provolone and the butter and pair with bread or fruit."

My favorite regional cheese is Rush Creek Reserve. It is seasonal so I can't even get it now. I think it's limited availability makes it more appealing. It's similar to a Vacherin Mont d'Or. I also like that company's Pleasant Ridge Reserve. The other regional cheese I love is Carr Valley Cave-Aged Marisa. It's a sheep's milk cheese. We love going to the Carr Valley store and buying the little ends of cheese.

I don't love cheddar cheese. I've tried a bunch of different types. I even tried a 15-year cheddar was supposed to be a big deal. It was OK. I hate smoked cheese. (I hate smoked anything.) I like just about every other type. I even like Limburger (but only once in a while).

Hmmmmm

No, it was a baked ricotta, but the cheese monger was insistent it wasn't cheesecake though it had some similarity in texture but just not overly sweet.  The name was Ricotta al Forno Al Limone.
