4 Easy Steps to Learn More About Cheese
If you're brand new to the cheese world and aching to know more, we've got a secret for you. Besides lurking our site and browsing our cheese library to brush up on your knowledge, there's really only one thing you need to do to learn all you can about cheese: eat it. More specifically, taste it (something we do on the regular here), which is a lot more involved than it sounds.
Tasting employs nearly all of the senses. It’s a mindful, analytical experience. As you taste, pay attention to the similarities among cheeses that you like. Being able to verbalize your preferences will make you a more informed cheese buyer when you approach a daunting cheese counter. It's all about educating your palate so that you can define what you like. And you'll learn what you like by tasting a ton.
