Cheese Sense and Sensibility



To truly taste and appreciate a cheese one must use all their senses and not relay on taste alone. The colour and shape entice the eyes, various notes in the aroma tickle different parts of the nose, and the texture affects not just the touch of the finger but the tongue as well. It’s the balanced combination of all senses that lead towards a truly excellent epicurean experience.

Sight: observe the colour and form
Smell: breathe in the aroma
Touch: feel the texture
Taste: enjoy and savour every bite

Notice how Black Diamond’s extra old cheddar cheese has a stronger scent and more crumbly texture than the smooth mild cheddar cheese.

When one engages all their senses, the eating experience is heightened. Next time you try a new cheese, implement all your senses and see if it works.
