Well, this isn’t technically a cheese from my country, but it’s so interesting and confounding that I want to share it with you guys.

There’s a cheese in Italy that’s known to be so dangerous it has been illegal to sell in the market. It’s made from goat cheese and from what I have read, the closest flavor comparison would be Gorganzola cheese.


In France, there are many types of cheese : Gouda, Camembert, Roquefort , Brie, chèvre its a goat cheese with great taste that we eat it with honey and nuts…


Cream cheese, mozerella cheese, cheddar cheese, cottage cheese, Gouda cheese, hamluomi cheese
