Popular types of cheese and their uses



Popular types of cheese and their uses
Cheese is by far the most popular topper used for food as an embellishment. Most people prefer including cheese as an appetizer at parties and they simply described it as being smooth, enticing, and creamy and a delicious type of food. Actually, no sandwich can be regarded to be complete when cheese isn’t a part of it and most dishes would simply turn dry without smothering of cheese in the entrĂ©e. When you are thinking of something that you can cut into small pieces and serve it picnics or other places your heart desires think of nothing else but Indian cheese or something of sort. 

Cheese India comes in different varieties and some of them are more popular than others. The Swiss cheese for example is also known as Schweizer or Emmentaler and refers to a firm cheese that is characterized by a mildly, nutty flavor. In most cases, this type of cheese is used for complimenting sandwiches and thus acts as an appetizer. Another variety is the Monterey jack which is one of the members of the well known Cheddar family. This cheese is white in color and mild with its texture depending on type of milk that is used in making it. In case the manufacturer uses whole mil, the resulting cheese is semi- soft and where one uses skim milk; the cheese is primarily used for grating due to its relative hardness. This Indian cheese is very common in southwestern dishes and Mexican Tex- Mex. 


The American cheese is a product that is derived from the regular cheese, food coloring, salt, unfermented dairy ingredients and emulsifiers. This cheese is commonly used on cold and heated sandwiches. Colby cheese is quite similar to Cheddar only that it is milder and softer due to its high moisture content. This cheese usually has slightly sweeter and mild taste but can at times be tangy and sharp. The fact that it is mild cheese means that it is rarely used for cooking as it is commonly used for grating, grilling, as table cheese and in salads and snacks. Actually, this cheese India compliments apples and appears and goes pretty well with burgers, barbecued dishes and chili. 

Provolone cheese is an Italian style variety which is sharp flavored and hard. It is commonly used in grating and is popularly enjoyed in sandwiches. Cheddar cheese comes in a range of taste selections and majorly depends on its age. Due to its mellow balance, mild cheddar cheese is perfectly used in sandwiches. The sharp cheddar cheese works great when used for cooking as the heat makes it to release its flavor and shreds well. The sharp cheddar perfectly complements sandwiches and salads. Another kind of Indian cheese is brick which even though it is mild, this cheese variety is sweet tasking and pungent at the same time. It is very delicious with vegetables and fruits and goes pretty well with snack trays and sandwiches. Other cheese varieties include the cottage cheese, brie, Muenster, blue cheese and parmesan among others.
