I guess you can figure out my theme for the 2014 A to Z Blogging Challenge. That’s right, it’s cheese! I hope you enjoy these posts!

“C” is for CHEDDAR

Ah, Cheddar. That ubiquitous cheese. But wait! I’m not talking about Kraft singles. I’m talking about the real deal. You want to go to the source? Then you want to visit the village of Cheddar in Somerset, United Kingdom. It’s been famous for cheesemaking since 1170 A.D.

Used to be England was the only place where Cheddar cheeses were made, but the cheese is manufactured all over the world today. That’s why it’s also the most widely purchased and eaten cheese.

Always made from cow’s milk. It gets a sharper taste as it matures (usually 9-24 months).

Now, how about a cheeseburger?

Cheddar, camembert, colby, cream??? I wondered what the cheese du jour would be. Loving learning more about one of my favorite foods. I do not like milk, so I “cheesed” it instead while pregnant. I think that’s why the two don’t like cheese so much. Overload!

There must be a gazillion varieties of cheddar out there. Always hard to know which one to try. This post made me think of Wallace and Grommet, ‘cheese’.

Wow! Cheese for theme- do they have cheeses starting with Q? Can’t wait. I like cheese but I can never remember the different kinds except the basic ones like Cheddar, Mozzarella, Camembert, Roquefort etc… Good luck with the challenge! I’m taking part as well though I don’t have a sepcific theme!
