Re: Cheese: Herbs and Cheese


I think cheese is best if great by itself without addition of any help ingrerdients. I didn’t know spices and herbs have to be cooked, for mold prevention, first and that is interesting but using add-ons can be a cheap way to market cheap cheeses to a population that only cares for the overall taste. That actually maybe a good idea to make many cheeses more palatable but good cheese should be kept pure or people lose faith in cheese.
