Say Cheese!

Cheese is one of those fantastic foods that's delicious on its own and pairs well with nearly everything. Most of us feel in love with cheese after that first bite of pizza or a juicy cheeseburger. Granted, those are still some of our favorite comfort foods, but we now know you can get great and exotic cheeses at most markets.

Cheese is a fascinating food that people have been making for centuries. By adding a culturing agent like acid or rennet to milk, you can make cheese quickly and easily. Best of all, cheese is amazingly customizable- it can be made from cow, sheep or goat milk and you can add any herbs and spices you like. Cheese pairs well with bread, fruit, meat and is also great on its own. There are far too many great options to name, but some of our favorites are creamy Brie, sharp Cheddar and nutty Manchego.

To find the best cheesy recipes from across the Web, we powered up the FoodPair search engine and found some great options for every course of your next meal.
