How to describe my cheese?
« on: November 11, 2009, 05:33:09 PM »
So we have opened our first three hard cheeses to date and are having a very hard time describing our disappointing flavors. We are looking for is a good list that helps us describe and trouble shoot our issues. We have M. Morris' book and she has a few words like bitterness (ours may have a bit), mealy flavour (maybe a bit in ours) and rancid (definitely not rancid). But we are looking for more words that will help us trouble shoot our flavor issue.
Cheese opened to date.
#1- Farmhouse cheddar
#2- Monterey Jack
#3- Havarti
Future openings
#4- Gouda
#5- Gouda
#6- Havarti
