Lets talk cheese
Cheese aficionados, whats your favorite?
Mine is Dubliner Irish Cheddar, a great cheese by itself or on a salad & goes great with a pint of Guinness.

the only decent brand they sell here is le chatelain, imported from normandy, france. the types made in america don't have the appropriate mold and environment that gives it the flavor i love; they come off as quite bland.

Let's see here (in no particular order):
Vermont Cheddar (available at Trader Joe's)
Any Bleu Cheese, but especially the creamier ones (Wholefoods has a really good one)
Spanish Manchego, the kind that sweats when you leave it at room temperature (ask ketel about this one)
Havarti (because cheese and crackers kick ass)
I'm sure there are more....

Ill second the TJs vermont white cheddar. Amazingly good.
The Cave Aged Gruyere is very good as well.
Others I enjoy....melted Swiss! Not that cheap **** and Arbys either; a real high quality swiss melted over some ham in a toaster oven.

Parm off the wheel!!!!
Seriously, at our "reception" (6 months after we were married), my wife was able to secure a quarter wheel of parm for the cheese station. WOOT!!!!
if my wife posted here, she would probably say epoisse or camembert.

I am a cheese addict. Different cheeses for different occasions. I don't like stinky cheeses though.
