Hi--Anyone have any ideas for substituting cheddar cheese (which can be quite hard to find in France)? Thanks
I think Cantal is similar in texture to cheddar.
Apparantly Cheddar can be found in a supermarket called L. Eclerc, I have yet to visit but it will be v.soon!!
I use Cantal. Cheddar is not that hard to find. Most larger cheese shops have it, very good quality. But it can be quite expensive. But you'll be hard pressed to find a really sharp cheddar in Paris.
I saw English cheddar being sold at the Monoprix on Rue Vaugirard in the 15th a few months ago. Cheddar is also sold at Bon Marche.
The closest to cheddar is cantal.And gouda is not french, it's dutch.
Aged gouda is easy to find in Paris, but I don't know about the rest of France. In Paris, cheeses from other countries are available.
Aged gouda is probably closest, but a good aged cantal or gruyere won't be half bad.
all good ideas, thanks, but maybe lacking that sharp bite of aged cheddar (I should have specified sharp!)
I think Gruyere would be yummy on grits.
Or, a better closer substitute, Mimolette
How about a nice aged Gouda?
HI Gratin-- Nope, in a grits dish, with shrimp.
Hi Haapi,How do you plan to use the cheese? Perhaps melted like raclette?
