Ricotta, fresh mozzarella and cream cheese are included in this category. Typically, these cheeses have a fresh, creamy, milky flavor and, are usually high in moisture content.
Brie and Camembert are soft-ripened cheese varieties, which typically have a soft-body and bloomy white mold on the rind that ripens the cheese from the outside in.
Monterey Jack, Havarti and Fontina, among others, are in the semi-soft category – a popular group of cheeses that melt well when cooked.
This category ranges from semi-firm Cheddar, Colby and Edam, to hard cheeses that are aged to perfection for years in some cases.
Flavorful and pungent, blue-veined cheeses include traditional blue cheese, Gorgonzola and Roquefort, and feature blue spots or blue veins through the interior of the cheese.
Pasta Filata means “spun paste” in Italian, and includes Mozzarella and Provolone cheeses. The curds are heated and stretched, resulting in a cheese that stretches when it melts.
Process cheeses - a blend of natural cheese and other dairy ingredients - allow chefs to control melting characteristics, and ensure consistent flavor over time regardless of season or age.
