Cheese is one of those wonder foods that tempts the soul with its deliciousness. It’s also one of the more simple recipes on the planet — manipulated into endless different forms, depending on the cheese maker’s desire. Form curds and store them one way and you get a creamy, melty brie. Store those same curds another way and you get a hard, sharp parmesan. Few foods are that versatile. But which is the best?
We needed an answer to that very question, because because we all have our go-to cheeses we crave. Over at Ranker they had the same quandary and asked their users to rank the best cheese in the world. It’s a hard to argue with the list since it’s, you know, cheese and it’s all good. Still… argue anyway!
This French-inspired soft cheese is a creamy delight with an orange rind. That orange comes from a seasoning called annatto which often colors other cheese like colby jack and cheddar. It also lends a slight nuttiness to the smooth creaminess.
