Is Your Favorite Foreign Cheese Not So Foreign?

Monday, November 19th, 2012

 

According to this interesting article on the Forbes, people in the US who enjoy eating Parmesan may rarely be actually consuming the popular Italian cheese. Larry Olmsted, a journalist and regular contributor on Forbes, states that when you buy it in America, “you could be getting anything” except the true version from Parma. Now that’s a cause for concern!

On a similar note, Ile de France cheeses such as Brie and Camembert are made authentically and naturally with freshly collected milk in France; though there are some substitute American versions that boast being gourmet and cheaper yet contain a lack of quality as well as less richness than the French Brie.

After all, they are both creamy and the sweetness of the hot cocoa boasts an excellent contrast to the savory flavor of a grilled cheese sandwich. Feel free to also check out these 40 Amazing Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipes from BuzzFeed Food to get you started!
