After doing this giveaway I thought for sure I had done one before regarding naming a cheese but I was wrong. My favorite is Gruyere, it's from the Swiss family and has much more flavor, Smoked Gouda is fantastic also. I laughed when Susan mentioned cream cheese and I thought wait that is not "cheese". But technically according to the US government it is, the U.S. Department of Agriculture defines the dairy product as containing at least 33% milk fat (as marketed) with a moisture content of not more than 55%, and a pH range of 4.4 to 4.9. In other countries, it is defined differently and may need a considerably higher fat content. Cream cheese is not naturally matured and is meant to be consumed fresh, and so it differs from other soft cheeses such as Brie and Neufchâtel. It is more comparable in taste, texture and production methods to Boursin and Mascarpone. So we learned a little about cheese today.
Ok I know enough with the cheese talk who won the poster. Maria with comment #30 and some Muenster cheese is the winner. Maria email me your address and I will be mailing the poster to you this week.
Big Thank You to John Vogl for providing the poster of course for the giveaway and head over to his website to see his work and if you still have a craving for cheese he does have some of these posters left for sale as well.
