A poll with no bad choices? I actually went through the cheese making phase in college. Good stuff. I’m current trying to perfect my yogurt making. Family is tearing through the Greek stuff fast enough to make it worth the time.
This was a hard (or maybe semi-soft) choice. But if you really want to try something unique, try a true smoked cheese (not commercial “smoke flavor added”). In particular a smoked mozzarella and a smoked goat cheese from oregon.
