HARD Great for grating, hard cheeses have been aged to remove moisture and to allow the salt in the cheese to crystallize. This is what gives these cheeses their sharp flavor and slightly granular texture. Because they do not need to breathe, hard cheeses can be wrapped tightly in plastic wrap in an airtight container for storage. SEMIHARD Semihard (or semifirm) cheeses have more moisture than hard cheeses, but they have a slightly smoother texture. They’re often used in cooking because they melt well.

Look for homemade pimiento cheese at cheese shops or specialty markets. Or make our recipe (page 86), finely chopping the cheddar cheese so the spread tucks nicely into the olives. APPLE-MOZZARELLA BRUSCHETTA Cut apples or pears into thick slices, top with fresh mozzarella slices, and broil (or use a kitchen torch) until cheese is bubbly and melty. Top with chopped fresh rosemary and chopped nuts. CREAM CHEESE AND CHIVE SCRAMBLED EGGS For the ultimate cheesy eggs with some serious fluff, add a chunk of cream cheese and some fresh snipped chives halfway through cooking. Finish with additional chives. CACIO E PEPE POPCORN Add a shower of freshly grated Parmesan cheese, a drizzle of olive oil, and some cracked…
