The Art of Tasting Cheese

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

A real expert in tasting cheeses, Laura Werlin – author of The New American Cheese – shares tips that help us take the mystery out of a trip to the local cheese shop:

“There’s no substitute for putting it in your mouth,  Laura Werlin says. A simple glance at a cheese won’t help. You must taste it. Don’t be afraid to ask retailers for a sample. They’re usually ecstatic when a customer wants to learn more. But if you’re stymied about what to do with the cheese once it’s in your hands, here are a few hints:

– First, tell the retailer what style of cheese you like. Then ask for one or two recommendations.

– Try several cheeses in the same category. Don’t try a blue cheese and then a fresh goat cheese. Instead go from mild to strong, soft to hard, within the same category of cheeses..”.
