A Word About This Book
Cheese, bread and wi ne have been on dining tables for as long
as civili zation has existed-indeed their development brought
civili zation with them. By accident and by design, the world's
earliest cheese soon brought i ts particular blessing to the home.
Cheese can be served as a simple snack or may grace the table
of a gourmet.
Throughout the centuries and in many countries, men have
experimented with producing l imitl ess varieties of cheese,
ranging from very soft and mild to very sharp and hard. Each
has its own inimi table place in dining and in cookery.
As a pioneer in these developments, Kraft Foods has made
important contributions to the world of cheese. Many of these
will be brought out in this brand new book, The Complete
Cheese Cookbook. You will also find valuabl e information on
the various cheese famili es, their history and the care of cheese
in the home.
The versatil i ty of cheese is demonstrated in the many reci­
pes created by the Kraft Kitchens' staff. You'll find new ideas,
as well as some of the popular and traditional favorites that
have appeared. in commercials on the Kraft Music Hall. We
hope this book will inspire you to further explore the wonder­
ful world of cheese.

The Complete Cheese Cookbook
Cheese-making has a long hi story, its ongms
lost in the far reaches of time. The discovery of cheese
was probably an accident-as simple an accident as
somene's tasting curdled milk and finding the taste
to his li king. Two legends persi st and are worth re­
peating because they are, like so many legends, both
interesting and li kely stories.
A News-Making Camel Ride
The first legend concerns a long-ago desert tribesman
who set out on a journey with a container of milk­
probably mare's or camel's milk-in that day's ordi­
nary milk container, the dried stomach of a sheep. In
the broiling desert sun he mounted his camel and took
off on a ride as bumpy and lurchy in those days as a
camel ride remains to this day.
When he stopped to refresh himself, he found the
milk separated into a thin, watery substance ( whey)
and a thickened mass (curds)-a result of the warmth
of the day and the churning motion of the ride he had
taken, helped along by the action of the rennet, an en­
zyme, in the sheep's stomach. He tasted the mass of
curds and was delighted. We can i magine that he
could hardly wait to get home to share his great di s­
covery wi th his family and friends.
A Shepherd's Forgotten Lunch
The second legend goes like this : Long, long ago a
herdsman went out to tend his sheep, taking with hi m
a lunch of fresh ewe's or goat' s mi l k cheese and a
chunk of bread. He laid his lunch aside-perhaps in
the shade of a tree, perhaps in a cave to keep the food
cool-and went about his business. Something kept
him from his lunch that day and for several days
thereafter. When he finally did get back to it, he found
82
-
The Romance of Cheese
the cheese in a condition that he probably thought of
as "spoiled. " It was veined with blue mold. Gingerly he
tasted the cheese and, to his surprise, found that it
was delicious.
Cheee i n Reorded History
However cheese came to be discovered, it has been a
staple-and nutritious and tasty-food of many peo­
ples for many years. The Sumarians of 4000 B. c. ate
cheese, as tablets dating back to that time testify. Ar­
chaeologists have similarly established that long-ago
Egyptians and Chaldeans knew what a wonderful
food could be made from clabbered milk. The ancient
Greeks thought it a fit offering to their gods. David,
on his way to deliver cheese to Saul's camp, interrupted
his journey to fight the giant, Goliath.
Among the many things of which Homer sang,
cheese was one. The Greeks trained their athletes on
cheese and made their wedding cakes of it. The Ro­
mans knew a number of kinds of cheese. Returning
from his journeys, Marco Polo told of, among other
wonders, the many varieties of cheese, and the secrets
of making it, that he had encountered.
Armies, so the old saying goes, travel on their
stomachs, and the men of many an ancient army, in­
cluding those of Julius Caesar and Genghis Khan, car­
ried cheese to sustain them. Visitors to ancient Sicily
brought home tales of incredibly delicious cheese­
cakes. Charlemagne, it is said, had a great fondness
for Roquefort.
Indeed, a history of cheese might be said to be a
capsule history of the world.
Dutch Cheee, Dutch Thrift
An old story told to demonstrate Dutch thrift and in-
8J
The Complete Cheese Cookbook
dustry says that for centuries women al l over Europe
sat in their kitchens with their feet and hands busy
with rocking cradles, knitting, s pinning, preparing
food for cooking-but only in Holland was there, as
well, under the seat cushion of each chair, a wheel of
cheese ripening.
Where Did That Word Come From?
How did we come by the word cheese? The ancient
Greeks drained their cheese in wicker baskets called
formos. The word beame forma in Latin, and from
that root came today's I talian formaggio and French
fromage. The Latin word for cheese itself was caseus,
and from that root sprang the German Kase, Dutch
kaas, Gaelic cais, Welsh caws, Portuguese queijo and
Spanish queso. The same root produced the Old En­
glish word cese and a variation, cyse, which evolved
into our present-day cheese.
Whatever i t is called, in whatever country, there
are by now a very great many varieties of cheese in ex­
istence-etimates range from 700 to 2, 000. France
alone claims 500. Some 200 kinds are made in the
United States.
Cheese is hearty, nourishing fare. Bread and
cheese-sometimes with a handful of olives or a fresh
fig or two or some apricots from a nearby tree-along

with a beaker of the sour local wine has fed many a
peasant in many a land. But cheese has snob appeal,
too. Gourmets speak of fine cheeses in hushed tones :
Crottin de Chavignol, for example, a small, medium­
firm salted goat' s milk cheese from the Berry district
of France that sells in Paris markets, during its short
season, at the equivalent of three dollars a pound.
Many cheeses are named after the places in which
they are made-or were first made. Cheddar is the
84
The Romance of Cheese
name of a village near Bristol, England, where its name­
sake cheese first saw light; today the town is still the
center of a thriving cheese industry. Limburger is
named after Limburg, Belgium.
Curds and Whe
Cheese-making may have begun as a happy accident,
but it has grow into a huge industry whose produc­
tion is based on scientific princi ples and surrounded
by strict regulations to control flavor, wholesome­
ness, uniformity and purity. Nevertheless, it all be­
gins now, as then, with the separation of milk into
curds and whey.
The kind of milk-sheep, buffalo, reindeer,
cow or goat-begins the determination of the taste and
texture of the finished cheese. By variations in prepa­
ration of curds, by the addition of such friendly or­
ganisms as bacteria and mold and by the conditions
of the curing or ripening, the differences among the
many kinds of cheese are caused.
Reduced to its simplest definition, natural cheese
is the solid or casein prtion of milk (curds) separated
from the whey. Coagulation is facilitated and con­
trolled by the action of rennet or of lactic acid or
both. Here are the basic steps in the manufacture of
natural cheese.
1. PREP A RING THE MILK
Fresh milk is received at the cheese factory from
farms. I t is scientifically tested and heat treated; fat
content is adjusted; the milk is then pumped into vats.
2. ADDING COLORING, STARTER AND
RENNET
Coloring is not used in all cheeses, but for a
85
The Complete Cheese Cookbook
golden-colored cheese, for example, a vegetable color­
ing is added to the milk. Then the starter, a pure cul­
ture of microorganisms, is added to help firm up the
curd particles and develop individual characteristics
of the cheese variety being manufactured. Rennet ex­
tract, containing the enzyme, coagulates the milk into
a custard-like mass, which is called curd.
3. CUTTING THE CURD AND COOKING
After the curd reaches the firmness of custard,
it is cut into small cubes to permit the watery whey to
begin to separate. Curds and whey are then heated to
the required cooking temperature for the kind of
cheese being made-this firms the curd and hastens
the separation of the whey from the curd.
4. DRAINING THE WHEY
The whey is removed from the curd by simple
drainage or by one of several mechanical methods.
5. SALTING THE CURD
The time that salt is added, and the amount, has
a definite effect on the type of cheese produced. Some­
times salt is added after pressing (step 6) .
6. PRESSING AND CURING THE CHEESE
The salted curd is weighed and pressed into
forms to produce a solid block of cheese. The cheese
is then kept in temperature-controlled storage rooms
to cure until the desired texture and flavor develop.
family Cheee Groups
Each cheese, of the cured cheese varieties, has its own
speific range of time and temperature, its ow par­
ticular conditions of curing which, taken together, re-
86
The Romance of Cheese
suit in the development of that cheese. Depending on
the sharpness desired, cheeses are aged up to twelve
months, some up to twenty-four months. The cheese
is then cut in portions of convenient si ze and packaged
in sealed wrappings to suit popular demand.
Just as there are many nations in the world, there
are great families-related groups-of cheese. All va­
rieties stem from nine basic families : Cheddar, Dutch,
provolone, Swiss, blue, - Parmesan, fresh, surface­
ri pened and whey. Most of these cheeses originated
in the Old World; those we find at supermarkets to­
day may be imported or may be manufactured in this
country.
Cheddar Cheese Family
Cheddar is the most popular cheese in the United
States. Like all other varieties of natural cheese, it is
made according to the six basic steps . The variation
that sets Cheddar apart occurs in step 4. At this point
the curd is allowed to knit together and is turned and
piled to expel the whey. This procedure-known as
cheddaring-develops the characteristic body and
texture. The flattened slab is then "milled" -cut into
smaller pieces-and placed in a hoop or mold.
Colby is another member of the Cheddar family.
In making it, the curd particles are stirred and not al­
lowed to knit together, resulting in a more open-tex­
tured cheese. The drained curd is washed with cool
water, which gives a cheese a higher moisture content
and milder flavor.
Monterey or Monterey Jack cheese was devel­
oped by monks in southern California in the early days
of California hi story. This creamy white cheese. is
similar to Colby, although it has a higher moisture
content, a softer consistency, and a more open te)ture.
8 7
The Complete Cheese Cookbook
The Dutch Cheee
The most popular varieties of cheese from Holland
are Edam and Gouda. Both are semisoft to hard, and
both are sweet-curd cheeses made from cows' milk.
Both have a characteristic milky, nut-like flavor that
varies in intensity with the age of the cheese.
In the United States Edam is the familiar red can­
nonball-shaped cheese, usually weighing from 3A
pound to 4¥ pounds. In Holland, Edam is often found
in the natural gold color, without the waxy red cov­
ering.
Gouda comes in one of two shapes : a flattened
sphere or a rectangular loaf. A Gouda may weigh from
six to fifty pounds, but probably the most familiar
is the "baby Gouda, " weighing a pound or less-the
size most often seen in our supermarkets. Gouda,
too, may or may not hqve a red wax coating.
Special metal or hardwood molds lined with
cheesecloth are used in the "pressing" step of the
manufacture of Edam and Gouda. These molds, which
give the cheeses their characteristic shape, consist of
a round lower section perforated for draining and a
round cover.
Cheeses made by this same method may include
mixtures of cumin, caraway and other spices. Some
examples are noekkelost, Leyden and cuminost .
The Provolone Cheee
The provolone family is technically know as pasta
filata (spun) cheese. The essential step in the prepa­
ration of these cheeses occurs after the separation of
the curd from the whey. The curd i s placed in either
hot water or hot whey, which changes i t into a stringy,
plastic-like mass. The curd is then stretched, much the
88
-
-
The Romance of Cheese
way taffy candy is stretched, and molded into the de­
sired size and shape. Then it is salted by being soaked
in brine, and following that, it may or may not be
smoked.
The most commonly used member of this cheese
family is provolone, which is slightly cured and usu­
ally smoked. I t has a very important place in I talian
cooking.
Mozzarella is another member of this cheese fam­
ily, one that has become very well known in the United
States because of the increased popularity of pizza. A
fresh cheese, originally made of buffalo' s milk, it orig­
inated in I taly just south of Rome. Buffalo-milk moz­
zarella is still sold in that area of I taly, but it is always
made from cows' milk in the United States .
Originally, mozzarella was sold and consumed
the day of manufacture, but with the advent of na­
tional distribution and commercial sale of the product,
it no longer lends itself to that kind of treatment . How­
ever, mozzarella is still a fresh, uncured cheese. It is
particularly adaptable to cooking, for it melts into a
smooth, stringy mass desirable for such dishes as piz­
za and lasagne.
Scamorze cheese is a close relative of mozzarella.
Both are fresh-uncured-and mild in flavor.
The Swss Cheee
Swiss is the second most popular variety of cheese in
the United States, ranking just behind Cheddar. In
Switzerland, its home country, this cheese is called
Emmentaler, a name also used to some extent in the
United States.
The distinguishing feature of Swiss cheese is its
"eyes " -holes that develop throughout the cheese
during ripening. These are the result of propionic acid
89
The Complete Cheese Cookbook
bacteria that produce carbon dioxide bubbles through­
out the body of the cheese. The si ze of the holes is con­
trolled to some extent by regulating the temperature
and time of ripening. Propionic acid bacteria also pro­
duce the characteristic sweet, nut-like flavor of Swiss
cheese.
Gruyere is related to Swiss cheese, although the
characteristic " eyes " are not as fully developed. A cer­
tai n amount of surface growth is allowed to take
place, resulting in a somewhat sharper flavor. Gru­
y
e
re cheese is very popular in Europe, but has never
gained si milar popularity in the United States.
To avoid confusion, the cheese buyer should un­
derstand that Gruy
e
re cheese as sold in the United
States is a pasteurized process cheese (see page 103)
containing Emmentaler and Gruy
e
re. This is usually
sold in small individually wrapped wedges and in
round or half-round packages. It is not the same as
the Gruy
e
re found in Europe.
The Blue-Veied Cheees
The blue-veined cheeses are characterized by the dis­
tribution of blue-green mold throughout the cheese,
which results in a characteristic piquant flavor. This
blue mold is the result of the inoculation of a strain of
penicillium mold that grows throughout the body of
the cheese.
Almost every cheese-consuming country of the
world has developed a blue-veined cheese very simi­
lar to the blue cheese produced in the United States.
The best known are I taly's Gorgonzola, England's
Stilton, France' s Roquefort and Denmark' s Danablu.
All these blue cheeses with �he exception of
Roquefort are made of cows' milk. Roquefort is pro­
duced from sheep's milk in a region of southeastern
90
The Romance of Cheese
France and cured in the caves that occur in the same
area.
During the manufacture of blue cheeses, the blue­
mold powder ( penicillium mold) is mixed with the
curd either while it is in the vat or while it is being
placed in molds or hoops. The cheese is held in these
hoops for twenty-four hours.
After removal from the hoops, the cheese is
salted over a period of approximately one week under
conditions that simulate the temperature and humid­
ity of the Roquefort caves. Approximately one week
after salting, the cheese is mechanically pierced to pro­
duce holes that allow air penetration essential for
mold growth. The cheese then cures for a period of
about five months.
The Parmean Chee
The members of this "hard-grating" cheese family,
primarily associated with I talian cooking, were origi­
nally developed in I taly in the vicinity of Parma. They
are grated and sprinkled on spaghetti, pizza, mine­
strone and tossed salads, and are used in baked dishes,
such as veal parmigiana and lasagne.
These cheeses are characterized by their hard,
granular texture, which makes them ideal for grating.
In fact, much of the Parmesan and Romano cheese
produced in the United States is sold grated or shred­
ded, in jars or cardboard containers.
Parmesan is the most familiar cheese in this group
and perhaps one of the best-know Italian cheeses
in the United States. It is made from a mixture of whole
and skim milk and is usually cured from fourteen to
twenty-four months to develop the characteristic tex­
ture and piquant flavor.
Romano, the other member of the family well
91
The Complete Cheese Cookbook
know in the United States, originated in the Latium
area near Rome. I t is very similar to Parmesan cheese
and is used in the same manner, but it has a sharper,
more piquant flavor. Both Parmesan and Romano are
excellent "seasoning cheeses. "
The Freh, Uncured Cheee
The fresh cheese do not follow exactly the six major
steps of cheese manufacture. Coagulation of the curd
is initiated by the addition of a lactic acid starter,
with or without a small amount of rennet. Also, as
their name implies, thee cheeses are not cured, but
are sold fresh. They have a mild flavor.
Cream cheee is an American original enjoyed
since 1872. I t starts as a mixture of milk and cream,
which is pasteurized and coagulated by a starter. Orig­
inally the curd was poured into cloth bags and pressed
to expel the whey. About 1945, Kraft perfected a meth­
od of removing the curd by centrifugal force. This
procedure is the one primarily used today. I t produces
a fine, smooth-bodied cheese that has greater keeping
qualities than cheese produced by the "bag method. "
Neufchatel i s the name of a lower-fat product
similar to cream cheee. Beause of their mild flavor
and smooth, creamy texture, both cream cheee and
Neufchatel blend readily wth other ingredients and
are used in a wide variety of recipes. They are espe­
cially popular as a base for many varieties of dips and
spreads.
Cottage cheese is a third member of the family
of fresh, uncured cheeses. In making cottage cheese,
skim milk is coagulated by adding lactic acid starter
and sometimes a small amount of rennet. When the
curd is sufficiently firm, it is cut into cubes and heated
in the whey. After the whey has been removed, the
92
The Romance of Cheese
curd is washed and salted. Cottage cheese is usu­
ally creamed to improve i ts flavor and texture. This i s
done by adding a mixture of cream and milk. Cot­
tage cheese can be purchased in small or large-curd
form.
The Surface-Ripened Cheee
Members of the surface-ripened cheese family include
Camembert, Brie, brick, Muenster, Bel Paese, Port du
Salut and Limburger. These cheeses may be divided in­
to two major groups, based upon the type of organ­
isms that are used to produce the characteristic flavor.
In the case of all surface-ripened cheeses, a bacterial
culture or a mold culture is grow on the surface of
the cheese. The enzymes produced by the growth of
these organisms penetrate the cheese and bring about
the development of the characteristic flavor and tex­
ture of each variety.
The two basic subfamilies within this large group
of cheese are differentiated by the type of organism
used for ripening-mold or bacteria. Characteristic
of the mold-ripened varieties are Camembert and
Brie, both of which originated in France and both of
which are very ppular with cheese connoisseurs all
over the world. The best-known variety of bacterial­
ripened cheese is Limburger. Other popular cheeses
of this type are Bel Paese of I taly and Port du Salut of
France.
Brick and Muenster, which were originally mem­
bers of this family of .heese, can no longer be con­
sidered true members, for today they have little or no
surface ripening. This is because of changes in con­
sumer preferences for milder and milder versions of
these cheeses.
93
The Complete Cheese Cookbook
The Whe Cheee
The whey group of cheeses is produced from whey
rather than curd. These are not true cheeses, for whey
is a by-product of cheese manufacture.
The whey cheeses vary greatly in characteristics.
Perhaps the best-know cheese in thi s category i s ri­
cotta,
u
sed frequently in I talian cooking. Ricotta was
originally produced by the coagulation of the albumen
portion of the whey, which resulted in a soft, fresh
cheee similar to cottage cheese. Today ricotta is made
by the coagulation of a mixture of whey and whole or
skim milk. It is a soft, grainy cheese, and can be pur­
chased either dry or moist.
Two other cheeses of this family, gj etost and
primost, are Scandinavian. They are prepared by con­
densing whey and adding small amounts of fat. Gjetost
is rather hard; primost is a semisoft product. An­
other member of the family is sapsago, a Swiss type
of whey cheese. It is the result of the acid coagulation
of the protein in a mixture of skim milk, buttermilk
and whey. The addition of the leaves of a cloverlike
plant leads to the characteristic flavor and light green
color. A hard cheese, it is primarily used grated.

The Romance of Cheese
Cheee Beginnings in America
In this country, cheese-making started not long after
the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock-in 1
6
24, to be
exact, right after the colonists, sick of their scant and
tiresome diet, joyously welcomed the first cows to the
new land. I n 1801, President Thomas Jefferson was
presented with a mammoth 1, 235-pound cheese, and
it was from awe at that monster that the catch-phrase
"bi g chees e" arose. Cheese was t hen general l y a
home and farm product. There were few cheese fac­
tories. One of the first was a Cheddar factory, built by
one Jesse Williams in 1851, at Oneida, New York.
By the time the manufacture of cheese became a
thriving industry in the United States, the usual meth­
od of sale was for the producer-sometimes a whole­
saler-to send his cheee to market in some central lo­
cation (almost all cities had large outdoor or indoor
markets) which the retailer would visit to choose
those products he wanted to sell in his store.
Young Ma with a Idea
In 1903, a young man named James L. Kraft had an
idea-why not take the cheese to the retailer instead
of making the retailer come to the cheese? He had, to
begin with, a horse (his name was Paddy) , a wagon
and a worki ng c api t al of si xty-fi ve dol l ars-and
abounding energy and a boundles imagination. He
filled his wagon with cheese at the market, clucked to
, Paddy, and started making the rounds of Chicago
grocers to sell them cheese.
But habit-bound Chicago grocers were unim­
pressed. They wiped their hands on long white aprons,
twisted the ends of their handlebar moustaches and
said, "Well, I don' t know . . . . "
Some days the total sales added up to less than

ten dollars. On such days, ]. L. held "business con­
ferences" with Paddy, who gave an occasional twitch
of his ears in reply.
One day, ]. L. explained to Paddy that they had
been careless and forgetful. "From now on, Paddy, "
he told his horse, "we're going to work with God as
our Partner. "
Busies Begis t o Improve
With his wagon hitched to this star, business began
to improve, and ]. L. and Paddy became the historic
"co-founders" of the Kraft Foods Company.
.
In August of 1904, J. L. wrote to a friend: "To
give you an idea of what you would have to do should
things work out all right : I t is simply a grocery route
on a large scale. You take a horse and wagon (and my
wagons are fancy ones) and get customers tha.t you
can call on once or twice a week and supply them regu­
larly. I am driving one wagon myself, and I am taking
care of the horses myself, but if all goes well, I think I
will have four horses by Christmas . . . "
As time went by, J. L. 's business flourished and
prospered. Not only did he do well, but he learned a
great deal about cheese. He learned, for example, that
there were problems in the manufacture and distribu­
tion of chees
-
e-many of those problems connected
with keeping qualities. Although natural cheese has
a longer life-both in the store and in the home-than,
for instance, the milk from which it is made, it is per­
ishable in degrees varying with the kind of cheese.
The very ripening processes which produce the dif­
ferent varieties, textures and flavors of natural cheese
don' t stop when the particular cheese has reached its
prime, and presently deterioration and drying set in.
Aside from those problems, variations in the
1 00
The Romance of Cheese
handling and curing of cheese cause appreciable dif­
ferences in taste and texture. I n other words, two
cheeses of the same brand, same variety and same age
might not necessarily be the same.
J. L Buys a Double Boiler
There ought to be some way to lick those problems,
James Kraft decided-and shortly thereafter found
himself in the cheese-making, as well as the cheese­
marketing, business. He began to experiment (in an
ordinary kitchen double boiler, price, fifty-nine cents)
with blended cheeses, and later with the pasteurizing
and blending of cheese, as solutions to these difficul­
ties. There were early failures but, eventually, suc­
cess. In 1916, the method of producing prqcess cheese
was patented by J. L. Kraft.
By 1917, Kraft cheese in tins, a pasteurized pro­
cess product, was ready for the market. By 1920,
Kraft's five-pound loaf, a pasteurized, blended
cheese in a wooden container, was placed on sale,
and became an immediate, spectacular success.
Pasteurized Proces Cheese Products
Process cheese is a product manufactured from natur­
al cheese according to specified government stan­
dards, and has had a major influence on the eating
habits of the nation.
The processing of natural cheese provides a
more stable product with greater uniformity of fla­
vor and texture. Processing consists of blending vari­
ous natural cheeses-mild, sharp and extra sharp­
by heating with the aid of an emulsifier. The resul t is
a homogeneous product consistent in flavor, body
and texture.
The manufacture of process cheese is quality
1 01
The Complete Cheese Cookbook
controlled throughout to ensure uniform good fla­
vor, smooth texture, melting properties and high nu­
trition. Available in a variety of types, shapes and fla­
vors, process cheese can be counted on to give excel­
lent results in cooking.
The most common natural cheeses used for
processing are Cheddar and Swiss. There is often
some confusion as to the differentiation of the vari­
ous process cheese products-pasteurized process
cheese, cheese food and cheese spread. The major
differences in these products are shown in this chart :

characteristics are selected and laboratory tested to
assure the desired quality in the fi nished process
cheese. Grinding or blending of the cheese by machine
follows; the blend is then transferred to the cooker.
Emulsifiers, designated by established govern­
ment standards, are added during the cooking. Emul­
sifiers prevent separation of the fat during processing
and produce a cheese with the proper melting and slic­
ing properties .
Pasteuri zation in the manufacture of process
cheese, as in the case of milk, consists of the applica­
tion of heat. Following established standards, the
cheese is pasteurized at a temperature of not less than
1so• F. for at least thirty seconds. This step prevents
further aging of the natural cheeses.
Packing is the final step. From the cooker the
hot, smooth, semiliquid cheese flows to a filling ma­
chine, where precisely weighed amounts are poured
into containers lined with moisture-proof material to
form loaves. For packaged slices, the cheese is run
over chilled rollers where i t forms ribbons of uniform
width. These ribbons run onto a conveyor where they
are stacked, cut and packaged in one continuous opera­
tion.
Pasteurized Proces Cheese Food
During the making of a natural cheese, some nutri­
ents of milk remain in the whey when it is drained
from the curd. These nutrients can be returned to
the hot cheese during the pasteurization operation.
They are usually added in the form of concentrates
or powders of skim milk and whey. When these milk
solids are added to process cheese, the amount of fat
is reduced and the moisture content is increased; then
the product becomes pasteurized process coccscfoo4.
1 03
The Complete Cheese Cookbook
For variety, other ingredients, such as meats, vegeta­
bles and fruits, may be added.
Pasteurized process cheese foods are milder in
flavor and melt more reagily than both natural and
pasteurized process cheese.
Pasteurized Proces Cheese Spread
When a softer, more spreadable cheese product is de­
sired, other ingredients may be added to process
cheese, such as milk products, sweetening agents and
vegetable gums. These products normally have a
somewhat higher moisture and lower fat content than
do pasteurized process cheese and pasteurized pro­
cess cheese food. They are referred to as pasteurized
process cheese spreads. Again, as with cheese foods,
other ingredients can be added to broaden the flavor
range-such ingredients as pimiento, olives, peppers,
spices and flavoring.
Why Cheee i Your Daily Diet?
Cheese-as is the milk from which it is produced-is
considered a nearly perfect food, providing a great
many of the essential food elements that the body
needs, such as protein, minerals, vitamins and fat.
Cheese is one of the most nutritious, concentrated
and palatable of foods-most nutrition experts consid­
er cheese, a highly concentrated protein food, to be
one of the basic foods .
.
There are three milk proteins : casein, albumin
and globulin. Casein, the
m
ost important of the pro­
teins, can be found only i n milk. I t i s considered a com­
plete protein because it contains all the necessary
amino acids, the building blocks from which all pro­
teins are made. The essential amino acids are indis­
pensable in the diet because the body cannot synthe-

port growth and tissue repair. Nonessential amino
acids can be formed by the body at a sufficient rate.
Proteins from various food sources differ in their
nutritive value because of differences in amino acid
content. A large share of the protein in the diet, espe­
cially for rapidly growing children and adolescents,
should come from the complete, high quality protein
foods. Cheese is such a food, containing significant
amounts of essential and nonessential amino acids.
Cheese is also a readily digested food. Experi­
ments have shown that from 90 to 99 percent of the
nutrients in cheese are digested. Nutritionists rank
cheese among the best of protein foods , even for very
young children. It is also an excellent source of cal­
cium and phosphorus. Though varieties of cheese
differ somewhat in composition, cheese is a good
source of vitamin A and contains significant amounts
of the water-soluble B vitamins in milk, although it
is not considered a primary source for these nutrients.
The fats present in cheese are all butterfats with the
same nutritional properties as the butterfats in cream
and milk.

A taste tour of the fascinating world of cheese begins
at the dairy case in your neighborhood supermarket.
Cheese products based on centuries of tradition are
readily available, offering a vast array of taste and
texture for you to sample. With flavors that range
from mild to sharp and textures that go from soft and
smooth to hard and coarse, there are cheeses to suit
every palate.
Cheese offers eating enjoyment, and it is nutri­
tionally a near-perfect food, two excellent reasons for
making cheese play a big role in your meal planning
and snack making.
Knowing the fine points of buying and storing
cheese, as well as employing a variety of menu uses,
will increase the enjoyment of cheese and pay big divi­
dends in good nutrition for the whole family.
Discovering Your Favorites

Cheee Buying Guide
When you start out to buy cheese, the first thing to
remember is that there are, as you have learned, two
major categories : natural cheese and process cheese.
Perhaps you' ll want to take the chart of natural
cheeses (beginning on page 95) with you to guide you
in choosing varieties new to you.
Col d-pac k or cl ub chees e i s nat ur al cheese
ground and blended t o be uniformly softer and more
spreadable at room temperature. It has the character­
istic flavor of the natural cheese from which it is made
and can be purchased plain or as a blend of the cheese
with fruits, vegetables, spices or wnes.
Pasteurized process cheese is always made from
natural cheeses ground and blended and heated with
the aid of an emulsifier to make a cheese of uniform
quality, flavor, texture and body. Process cheese is
milder in flavor and softer in body than the natural
cheese from which it is derived, and it keeps better
because pasteurization stops the curing or ripening
process. It is ideally suited for cooking, as i t melts
readily and smoothly.
Pasteurized process cheese food is a variation of
pasteurized process cheese, found today in links and
individually wrapped slices. I t differs from pasteur­
ized process cheese in that milk or whey solids have
been added. Pasteurized process cheese foods are
milder in flavor, have a softer body and melt more
readily than either natural or pasteurized process
cheese because of their higher moisture and lower fat
content. Meat, fruits, vegetables or flavoring may be
added to lend variety.
Pasteurized process cheese spread is another
pasteurized process cheese variation-milk solids and
1 07
The Complete Cheese Cookbook
certain other flavoring foods, such as pimiento or ba­
con bits, may be added. I t is normally higher in mois­
ture and lower in fat than pasteurized process cheese
or cheese food. Its smooth texture, pleasingly mild
flavor and high nutritional qualities make it a cheese
product that pleases the whole family.
Cheee Buymanship
Look for natural cheese and process cheese products
in or near the refrigerated dairy case at your super­
market. Buy cheese products to suit the family's
needs. When planning daily menus, remember that
cheese, a nearly perfect food, fits into two of the basic
food groups-the milk group and the meat group.
Natural cheeses are always stored in the dairy
case, where they tempt the eye in an array of distinc­
tive shapes : wedges, wheels, balls, flat rounds, loaves,
sticks and convenient packaged slices. Individually
wrapped slices are a recent, most important break­
through, as they assure freshness and longer storage
time.
Pasteurized process cheese foods and spreads
are also available in wide variety: slices, loaves, links,
dips and spreads. The process cheese products in
glasses, loaves and squeeze packs that do not require
refrigeration are found above or near the dairy case.
How to Store Cheee
When storing unopened cheese at home, consult the
label for manufacturer' s instructions or follow the
lead of your supermarket and store the product as it
was stored there when you bought it.
You'll find most cheeses in the dairy case-your
clue to refrigerate them at home. Jars and loaves that
are kept on nonrefrigerated shelves can be stored at
1 08
The Romance of Cheese
room temperature at home until used-once opened,
they should be kept in the refrigerator. Some prod­
ucts, such as sueeze packs, are the exceptions; these
should never be refrigerated. They'll stay fresh at
room temperature as long as they last.
"Keep air out and moisture in" is a good rule to
remember when storing cheese. Reseal unused por­
tions in the original wrapping or use foil, plastic bags
or transparent wap snug and tight against the cheese,
to keep i t moist and fresh. Individually wrapped sin­
gle slices of cheese, carefully designed foil packaging
materials and easy-to-open-and-reseal plastic lids and
metal caps are designed to keep cheese products fresh.
Occasionally surface mold may form on cheese
even when it has been properly stored. This mold is
harmless and will not affect the quality or flavor of
the cheese. Simply cut off the mold and enjoy the rest
of the cheese. Remember that the blue cheese family
gets its piquant flavor from the characteristic blue­
green mold throughout the cheese.
To Freeze or Not to Freeze
If properly stored, cheese keeps a relatively long peri­
od of time at refrigerator temperature. Freezing
cheese will extend its storage life, but may affect the
body and texture. Frozen cheese may become crum­
bly or mealy, and is then best suited for cooking.
For best results, cheese should be tightly sealed
in moisture-proof material, such as plastic wrap or
foil especially designed for freezing. Cheeses such
as Cheddar, Swiss, Edam or Gouda can be stored in
the freezer i f frozen rapidly in small (half pound) pack­
age. I f the cheese has been cut into small cubes, keep
it in the freezer no longer than three weeks. Slices and
1 09
The Complete Cheese Cookbook
loaves of natural cheese, such as Cheddar and Swiss,
and pasteurized process cheese products may be kept
frozen for up to three months. Before using cheese,
thaw slowly, preferably in the refrigerator while still
in its wrapping.
Cheese at Its Best
Other than in hot dishes, the fl avor and character of
all cheeses, except cottage, Neufchatel and cream
cheese, come through best when served at room tem­
perature. To fully enjoy the special qualities of a
cheese, remove it from the refrigerator at least thirty
minutes before it will be served. Cheeses such as Cam­
embert should be soft and almost runny to be at their
most pleasing, so remove them from the refrigerator
at least a couple of hours in advance. Serve cottage,
Neufchatel and cream cheeses chilled.
Shredded versus Grated
When used for melting-as in sauces or for toppings
or in other cooked forms, such as casseroles-cheese
should be shredded unless you are using pasteurized
process cheese spread or pasteurized process cheese
food, both of which melt satisfactorily in a liquid me­
dium when sliced or cubed. Some cheeses are avail­
able preshredded in jars and in film packages. To
shred cheese at home, use the coarse openings of your
grater and you' ll produce the long strips or shreds of
cheese desirabl e for cooking purposes.
How Much Cheee?
When a recipe calls for a specific measure of cheese­
a cup or a half cup, for example-it's easy to know
how much to buy. Just keep in mind that one-quarter
pound-fou� ounces-of cheese is equal to one cup
110
.
The Romance of Cheese
shredded cheese. This rule applies whether you are
using any one of the many varieties of cheese in its
natural form or pasteurized process cheese in any of
its forms.
About Cooking with Cheese
Like all protein foods, cheese is adversely affected by
high heat or prolonged cooking. Although pasteur­
ized process cheese products are less susceptible to
heat than natural cheese, it is advisable to follow
these two rules of cheese cookery:
1 . Use low to medium heat.
2. Do not overcook-heat j ust until cheese melts.
* When adding to hot foods, shred natural cheese and
cube or slice process cheese.
* When making a sauce, add cheese at the end of cook­
ing time and heat just until melted.
* When broiling, place pan so that cheese is several
inches below heat source; broil just until cheese melts.
* When cheese is used in baked dishes, bake at low
( 325° F. ) to moderate (375° F. ) temperatures.
* When topping a casserole, place cheese on top for
the last few minutes of baking.
* Four ounces of natural or process cheese equals 1
cup shredded or cubed cheese.
* Shred natural cheese that is to be melted in sauces,
toppings or other foods. (Cheese can also be pur­
chased already shredded in convenient packages. )
* Cube process cheese products when adding t o oth­
er foods. I t will melt quickly and blend easily.
* Parmesan type cheeses are usually grated or
shredded. Grated is finer and drier than shredded.
* Cream cheese and Neufchatel blend readily with
other ingredients if first allowed to soften at room
temperature.

Perfect Partners :
Cheese and Wine
Beyond memory, from one end o f the earth to the oth­
er, peopl e have been eati ng cheese and dri nki ng wine,
combining them into a simple, wholesome snack or
cal l ing the two in combination a full meal. Cheese with
wine i s hearty fare-depending on the country, a peas­
ant will add a chunk of crusty bread and, perhaps, a
handful of ol i ves or of nuts in the shel l ; sometimes a
green salad will accompany the cheese-wine-bread
meal, refuting those who say that the sharpness of
oi l -and-vinegar dressing " fight s" the flavor and aro­
ma of wine; sometimes a piece of frui t-with more
cheese-wi ll round off the repast , a j uicy pear, per­
haps, or a crisp apple.
Those of us who have tri ed this kind of cheese­
and-wine meal know what great eating really can be;
those who consider such a meal not worth considering
have missed one of the world' s great gastronomical
treats .
What Wine with What Cheese?
A red wine, some experts say, goes best with most
kinds of cheese. But sui t your own taste. There once
was a great mysti que surrounding the buying, serving
and drinking of wine. I n those days , each wine had to
have its own " proper" glass ; wines of different kinds
had to follow a prescribed order of service through­
out a meal that often offered seven different wines to
accompany as many different courses .
Now happily-and much more s imply-we let
our taste be our gui de when we choose a cheese and
then choose a wine to go with it. Most of the vari ous­
ly shaped wine glasses have di sappeared, too, and we
serve many kinds of wi ne in a si mpl e, al l -purpose,
tul i p-shaped stemmed gl ass that s erves for any wine,
any occasion.
Good Taste, Good Sense
A s imple rule for choosing cheese and wine to go to­
gether: Trust yoursel f, your taste, your common
1 85
The Co mplete Cheese Coo kbook
sense. I t ' s very unl i kely t hat you' ll even t hi nk of part­
nering Limburger or Lager Kase with champagne or,
at the ot her extreme, Philadel phi a Brand Cream Cheese
and fresh st rawberri es for dessert with a young and
harsh Chi anti . I n between such l i mi ts of absurdi ty,
l et your taste and your good sense tell you what goes
with what to suit µc u
Here, to get you s tarted on your cheese-and-wi ne
thi nking are some combinations that seem to have a
parti cul ar affi ni ty.
Camemoett. Try a hearty red wi ne-perhaps a Pinot
Noi r or any of the other Burgundi es or a Cabernet
Sauvignon. This lovely, cteamy cheese may also be
served for dess ert, with crackers and/or with fruit; in
that case, serve a dessert wine.
S�iss aod Ctuyète· For these s weet , nutl i ke flavors ,
choose a whi t e tabl e wine-a Chabl i s or a sauterne,
perhaps , or one of the Rhine wi nes or any of the fine
American whi te wines . Champagne goes well with
these cheeses , too-but doesn' t champagne go well
wi th just about everythi ng?
Roquejc tt aod ß| ue· Sharp and tangy in flavor, these
cheeses , with thei r handsome bl ue-green vei ns, make
perfect partners for sturdy red wines-a good, robust
Burgundy or one of t he Bordeaux wines or their Amer­
i can cousi ns . For a change, try a nut ty dry sherry with
these cheeses .
A| | t|e C|eddats · These range in fl avor from mild to
extra sharp. Cal i fornia' s great Zi nfandel or any rose
wine goes well wi th al l the Cheddars except for the
sharpes t . Wi th those, choose a Burgundy-perhaps
a Beauj ol ai s-or a sturdy I t alian Chi ant i .
Ftouc|coe aod Mozzate||a· Both are soft , mi l d and
smooth-provolone someti mes has a s moky fl avor.
Good I t alian Chianti is an excel l ent choi ce. But rose
wines and whi t e wi nes go wel l with these, too.
Ldam aod Co uda. The good "cannonbal l " cheeses
make a fine marriage with Cabernet Sauvignon or do
equally well with a s weeter, dessert-type wine, such
as a rich port .

incredible few who say, " I don' t l ike chees e. " Serve

ßti ck, Mucnstct and Mon tctcy )ack· These are rea­
sonably mild, yet each has a distinctive flavor. · Roses
complement them beautifully. So does · Cali forni a' s
Gamay Beaujolais . Or experiment wi th a whi te wine

Cheese and Wine Tasting
Cheese and wine fi t the modern mode of entertaining,
whether formal or informal. I n selecting cheese for a
tasting, make a selection that offers a vari ety of flavors
-from mild to sharp-and a blend of textures from
creamy s mooth to fi rm. Take advantage of the color
and shape contrasts available - in the world ofcheeses .
Ti ps on serving cheese: `
Temperature-cheese should be served at room
temperature ( remove from refrigerator an hour before
serving) for greatest enjoyment .
Tasting-the more delicately flavored, mild
cheeses should be sampled before the sharper cheeses .
Quantity-allow V to V pound per person.
The more types of cheese offered, the more of each
cheese is requi red to -provide an adequate sampling·.
Ti ps on .erving wine:
Temperature-' wines vary i n proper serving
temperatures . Generally appetizer wines, white table
wines, roses and sparkling wines are chi lled ( an hour
in the refrigerator is enough) . Red wines are served at
room temperature, and shoul d be opened an hour be­
fore servi ng. ( Open the wine when you remove the
cheese from the refrigerator . )
Tasting-pour wines into clear glasses. Pro"
vide a clean glass for each wine, if possi ble. Or have a
pitcher of water handy and a receptacle for rinsing
glasses . Taste the dry wines before s weet wines,
whites before reds .
Quantity-a fi fth of wine gives about 15 tast­
ings . Allo_w about one-hal f bottl e per person. A tasting
of wine i s bet ween 1 and 2 ounces , a normal s erving 4
to 6 ounces,
