I guess I can see Parmesan as nutty, but it should overlap with salty too.

What would American cheese be? I am looking for something in between that and sharp cheddar.

God Is My Co-Pirate: I guess I can see Parmesan as nutty, but it should overlap with salty too.


I found this diagram a bit confusing, but I don't think they're labelling Parmesan as nutty. From what I can tell, the exit points of the lines from the center for the branches are irrelevant.  All that matters is the pattern on the circle for each individual cheese, so the Parmesan is labeled sharp, pineapple, sweet and waxy.

I don't know why, but I like stinky cheese. I've also gotten to where I really like soft ripened cheese, too. I had trouble, today, just picking one block of cheese when I was in the cheese department at Central Market. If you're in Texas, go there. You won't be disappointed.

The circles may be individually valid, but the network is totally bogus. Start at the center, move out from 'Goaty', and get Cheddar? Nonsense.

Now that I look at the circles, the flavours seem arbitrary.

Very poor data representation. Edward Tufte would disapprove.

I agree that the lines from the center do nothing but confuse the chart.  They should of either had them work there way out via the proper grouping or not used them at all.

I mean really, mozzarella comes after mild chedder?  WTF?

Guryere to Parmesan  is about the only one they got right, although the lineage should go Baby Swiss -->  Swiss -->  Guryere --> Parmesan

You can eat whatever chees you want. I don't really care. Just don't eat mine. It's nacho cheese.

What are you, some kind of munster?  Your intolerance of puns just bleu my mind. I'm just trying to get in a few bon mozz, a rella am, and you come along with this cruelty.  It's like you threw a verbal grenade, and I'm left to clean up de brie.  I camembert the last time somebody treated me this poorly!

I have so much trouble moving away from sharp cheddars. I find stuff I like, but my faves are always some kind if medium to sharp cheddar, don't know why.

The smoked mozzarella and baby swiss from Trader J's are horrible.
The dubliner white cheddar makes for good grilled cheese.

i think that smoked mozzarella is usually a failure. mozzarella is wonderful when it's fresh.  it's all about consistency, because it's a relatively tasteless cheese.  i don't think you do it any favors by smoking it
