This might just be our cheesiest personality quiz of all time…

Ah, cheese – how do we love thee? Let us count the ways…

If there’s one thing we love more than (or at least as much as) gin, it’s cheese. And, on 30 May, the UK’s best cheese was revealed to be an English Pecorino from artisan cheesemaker White Lake Cheese.

That’s right: the cheese – made from thermised sheep’s milk with vegetarian rennet, washed in brine three times a week and is matured for around six months – has won Supreme Champion at this year’s British Cheese Awards.

“This English Pecorino from White Lake Cheese is an exceptional cheese and a worthy Supreme Champion,” says Julius Longman, chairman of the British Cheese Awards. “It has a semi-hard texture with a well-balanced creamy and nutty flavour. It’s third year in a row for Pete and Roger and a testament to their skill in cheesemaking.”

This year’s competition attracted just under 900 entries from 122 makers, with 70 judges reviewing 123 classes of cheese. Cheeses entered came from over 54 counties that covered the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland, showing just how vibrant the British Cheese Industry is today. 

To be honest, though, there aren’t many cheeses we’d turn our noses up at. From buttery gruyere to creamy camembert, strong stiltons to extra mature cheddars, there’s a cheese out there to suit every mood, every meal, and everyone. And no dinner party would be complete without a well-stocked cheeseboard.

But, while our taste in cheeses is wide and varied, it turns out that there’s one cheese to suit each person’s personality

Apparently.

Are you a gorgonzola or a goat’s cheese? A stilton or a brie? Or are you something completely and wildly different?

With so many cheeses to choose from, it can be hard to figure out which one best represents you and all you are.

Which is why we’ve devised an extra-cheesy quiz to help you to figure things out.
