It’s a satisfying snack and an easy appetizer. Here’s what you need to know about choosing, storing, serving, and sampling cheese.
This popular high-fat hard cheese takes its name from the village of Cheddar, in Somerset, England.
Traditionally made in Italy from the milk of water buffaloes, mozzarella is now made mainly from cow’s milk. It melts beautifully, making it the cheese of choice for pizza.
Like its cow’s-milk cousins, goat cheese (called chèvre) comes in endless varieties. The main attraction? Its wonderful tangy flavor.
