Cheese, please

Rubbery Cheeses:

Mozzarella
A pale yellow Italian-style cheese traditionally made from Buffalo Milk. Very mild in taste, with a medium fat content. Perfect for melting - usually used for Pizza.

Bocconcini
A white Italian-style cheese with a distinctive fleshy texture. You buy it in small balls and store it in water. It is very mild in taste, and usually used as a salad, sliced and alternated with slices of ripe tomatoes and fresh basil leaves, drizzled with a good Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Gouda and Edam
Fairly sweet Dutch-style cheeses. Mild, and good for melting.

Gruyere
Yellow Swiss-style cheese with holes. Good for melting or serving on a cheese platter.

Smoked
Although you can buy Smoked Cheddar, usually "Smoked" cheese is flavoured processed cheese. As the name suggests, it has a very distinctive smoky flavour and can be used for melting, in sandwiches or on a cheese platter.

Havarti
Danish-style light-coloured cheese with small holes. Fairly distinctive flavour, creamy texture and quite a high fat content. A good eating cheese (as opposed to cooking).
