…a few cheeses to try
*Blue-veined cheeses usually have a strong flavour; try crumbly French Roquefort, English Blue Stilton, Italian Gorgonzola and creamy Dolcelatte. *Soft cheeses with a white floury crust are French Brie and Camembert; their flavours can range from mild to piquant. *Parmesan is a strong, hard Italian cheese that is used in small amounts to flavour a dish. *Delicately flavoured Italian mozzarella cheese melts well and is often used for toppings, but is also good uncooked in salads. *The distinctive flavour of smoked cheeses makes them useful in bakes or cold dishes.
