    This thread has been a long time coming. DLP, what is your BEST WAIFU CHEESE?

    Mine is halloumi.

    [​IMG]

    You see those fries? YOU SEE THEM? That's right. Solid motherfucking cheese. Halloumi retains its shape when cooked, so you can shape it into fries, burgers, or sear those delicious black lines onto it on a grill.

    Come at me with your cheeses.

    Burrata, also known as the cheese to bathe in.

    I can't choose a best. I work in a cheese shop. So my top five right now in no particular order:

    Belavitano Cognac
    Prima Donna
    Grand Noir Blue
    White Stilton with Figs and Honey
    Brie D'Chateulain(sp)

    Gonna go a little simpler here.

    Gouda.

    For cooking though, I really like using a mixture of Ricotta and Parmesan.

    You know that's not even cheese, right?

    I mean, I get your post. Just saying.

    What dishes do you use with Ricotta. I can't imagine you're just sprinkling it in.

    Imma go traditional. Nothing better than a melted Camembert and a baguette and a couple other sauces to go with it.

    Well, naturally Lasagna, but I also do a grilled chicken manicotti.

    Marinate the chicken in some italian seasonings and dressing. Lightly grill it up. Stuff manicotti shells with the chicken and ricotta. Cover with a tomato based italian sauce and parmesan. Bake it in the oven.

    I'm a huge fan of italian dishes.

    I'm an Italian Chef. You should post your recipes in a thread here. I'm sure that someone could find them useful.

    Bows.

    I'm in awe of your greatness. To be an Italian chef is certainly a career I would consider, but I enjoy cooking my meals for myself and avoiding the stress of cooking for others. Are you in more of a restaurant setting or catering?

    My recipes are on the level of a college student with limited funds, but I'll take a look at it and share.

    Grilled halloumi is great, and camembert is glorious. I'd fuckin' kill a man for some stilton. But my favourite will always be @CheddarTrek. <3

    ...What, too cheesy? :chainsaw:

    I didn't take it as dick waving.
    My bad. It wasn't meant as sarcasm. I legitimately am in awe of people who make that their profession. Food can be an art form.

    The failed tag makes this so much better.

    I need to get more non-standard cheeses into my life.

    Mozzarella.

    Wait, I'm serious here. Real mozzarella has the stonesstretc you just can't get anywhere else, with a mild flavor that plays with pizza, pasta, burgers, caprese, whatever.
    It's a solid 4/10 by itaelf, but cheese excels at enhancing other dishes. And mozzarella is the best at that.

    Now, if you want best cheese board cheese, I'm partial to a Camembert.

    I've gotta second halloumi,

    Argument the first: it's the punch line of easily the least-funny most-used cheese joke, which is certainly a point in it's favour.

    Secondly, it's one of the few good tasting cheeses in the world. Controversially, I'm not much of a cheese fan. Eating halloumi, I thought I must have found some mythical Greek ambrosia alternative, surely that delightful substance could not be cheese? I feel like halloumi is what Hogwart's students would experience when eating 'cheese', if Taure's postulations about magic-food interactions are to be believed, some sublime substance.

    Vote halloumi!

    This is a thread to settle the matter, right?
