New York and Wisconsin cheddars vie to see who’s the big cheese


Alexander Miller, a 22-year-old actor in New York City, samples cheddars in the Daily News taste test of New York and Wisconsin varieties.

The Green Bay Packers’ most rabid fans, known as cheeseheads, take it as an article of faith that their state makes the best cheddar. But is it really any match for the New York version?

As the New York Giants prepare to face the Packers in the playoffs Sunday, The Daily News staged a showdown between the two states’ cheddars in a blind taste test in Times Square Tuesday.

“New York’s better at everything,” declared Gina Guglielmo, 18, a college student from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn.

She was confident she would prefer the New York cheddar. But like many tasters, she was a bit overwhelmed by the New York cheddar’s notorious sharp bite.

Wisconsin, which produces more cheese than any other state, is known for its milder cheddars.

“I don’t really like it,” Guglielmo said as she chewed a New York cheddar made by McCadam. “It tastes extremely cheddary. It tastes very strong.”

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
