They make cheese outside of France, Switzerland and all those other lovely places. Where else to find them?
Tell me. They must make some kind of cheese elsewhere. Must be an "old technique" in food production.
In the Philippines, they call it kesong Puti --- literally white cheese from water buffalo or from goat (ricotta-ish). We normally eat them with our local bread called pandesal.

Of course there's my favorite cheese from Spain!
Cheese, cheese and more cheese. You've got to come to America...
California and Wisconsin make all kinds of cheese. We are a dairy farming nation and proud of our cheeses. (one of the reasons America has a weight problem)

ohhh my hubby works for a cheese company so our house is filled with cheeses. King Island (off Tasmania) cheese is definitly up there in the 'premium' cheeses of Australia and my mum is from a dairy farm and they make 'Gippsland Cheeses. Pretty much Bries, Cambemberts, blue's, cheddars and fettas are the most prevalent that people would eat. I do love a Houloumi fried though and the persian fetta that King Island cheese has is absolutly delux with olive oil and peppercorns but costs a fortune - thank goodness we get it for free 😊)
Tam....I'm drooling now. Can u post some pics ESP of the Houloumi?

This morning I bought Quark. It is cream cheese made in Germany, where I live as an expat.
It comes in with various percentages of fat, from less than 1% to 60%.
It also comes in a variety of flavours, as well as plain. It can have herbs in it for putting on bread, or fruit in it for eating as a desert or for breakfast.
I currently have it in plain 40% fat flavour, to put on some baked potatoes I made. And, in winter apple flavour with less than 1% , to eat as a desert. Winter apple means with flavours such as cinnomen added.
Mmmmm cheese! Where I grew up in the UK we have a 2 day Cheese Festival with lots of food stalls and samples of locally made cheeses - Cheddars, Dorset Blue Vinney, Sheep and Goat cheeses, bries, smoked cheese, cheeses with fruit and spices and pretty much every kind you can imagine! I have to be in the country again one year soon to go to this!
In Eldoret in Kenya we did a brief tour of a cheese factory. I was rather surprised to find a cheese factory in Africa it has to be said. We weren't allowed any samples but probably a good/safe thing considering the antiquity of the machinery and the fact they appeared to have no protection against contamination whatsoever!
For me the country of cheese is Holland. I don't have any pictures, but check it out. Loved to see when the workman walking around in their wooden shoes and carrying the big round cheese.
