Next, How to Choose the Perfect Cheese for Your Platter:

Selecting the perfect cheese provides us a fun challenge, and often result to surprising pairing discoveries. So today, select a cheese which has the variety of textures and flavors that belong to the basic groups or categories of cheeses. You may remember this acronym: BAFS for blue, aged,  firm, and soft.

Valdeon is a blue cheese made from both cow and goat’s milk. But sometimes, a sheep’s milk may use to substitute goat’s milk. It exudes an intense flavor with somewhat lactic taste. This cheese has a rich buttery aroma, and the texture is creamy.

Certain cheeses – aged Cheddar, Swiss, blue, Monterey Jack, Brie, Gouda and processed American cheese – have been shown to help prevent tooth decay. Calcium, phosphorus and other components in cheese may contribute to this beneficial effect.

Goat Gouda is a good choice for aged cheese. It has a semi-firm cheese made from pasteurized goats’ milk. It has an ivory color and has a dense and smooth texture at the same time slightly grainy. It takes 4 to 5 months to age this type of cheese. It is usually used for pies and crisps.

As part of the tradition, the cheese is being wrapped with grass molds, thus the distinct characteristic of Manchego,

Cheese takes up about 1/10 the volume of the milk it was made from.
