How to Taste Cheese:Yumsugar

Click through the link below for the full article, based on a presentation recently by Culture’s Lassa Skinner. Excerpt:



There would be no cheese without the milk! Each milk imparts a different flavor and texture, and with more tasting, you’ll be able to distinguish the varieties without even looking on the label. Here are the types of milk you should know:

Goat: Grassy and sour, popular goat milk cheeses include chèvre and crottin.

Cow: Cow’s milk is used in most cheeses you know and love like brie, gouda, and blue cheese.

Sheep: Nutty, sweet, and tangy, pecorino romano and manchego are just a few of the most popular sheep milk cheeses.

Water buffalo: Mozzarella di bufala comes from the milk of the water buffalo.

Blended: Some cheesemakers mix the milks in cheese combos like goat-cow or cow-sheep.

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.
