- Bestest fromage ever? I know it's subjective but….
Rogquefort is indeed an outstanding cheese, it goes fabulously well with Sautern/Barsac or other sweet wines.
As for choosing a single best cheese that’s just too difficult, one cheese is never enough. Excuse spellings, some favourites
Comte for soufleesPosted 4 years ago
Savoie and Tome de Chevre
Reblochon for tartiflete
Gruyere for Daupphinoise potatoes
There’s a wonderful pyramid shaped cheese with a layer of ash
A variety of Cheddars from fairly mild to strong and tangy
A good stilton and a glass of portmogrimMember
Nice to see a few others have discovered Manchego
Hard to get away from it in Spain, it’s the Spanish equivalent of cheddar. As in everything from rubbery crap to sharp, crumbly deliciousness.
But this “one bestest fromage” thing is stupid, anyway: there’s no such thing. All cheeses have their place and time, except gouda with cumin. That’s just rank.Posted 4 years agobobbyspanglesMember
Cantal fermier for myself if choosing a firm cheese to top them all.Posted 4 years ago
Sometimes I feel like the world is collapsing in when I see fruit/chilli/seeded bloody cheese being bought.
I don’t need much in this bleak world in which we live to cling onto but dairy is one of things.theotherjonvSubscriber
Impossible to answer since there’s so many types – you can’t compare a soft rind cheese against a blue against a hard cheese any more than you can say that that pint of lager is better than that stout which is better than that glass of cider.
Can’t believe that Stichelton hasn’t had a mention yet though…..Posted 4 years agoMrOvershootSubscriber

anything without fruit. whoever committed this travesty needs a severe talking to. the only things that should be added to cheese are mould or a few herbs in soft cheese. no cranberries, apricot, chilli etc. carry on.
+1000000 on the fruit front but chilli flakes are OK
Shropshire Blue is my present fave but as the weather warms up I seem to gravitate to soft French cheese variety’sPosted 4 years agoKitMember
