This thread, http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/867756, got me thinking.
What cuisine uses the most cheese in their preps?
Is it Italian? Mexican? French? Spanish?
Some other cuisine?
The US may consume the most cheese, with pizza a big factor, but I wouldn't call American cuisine "cheese-centric." For that I'd look to countries where cheese is featured in its own right, in dishes like fondue or as a separate course. Switzerland, maybe?
Easily Switzerland. There are a number of dishes based entirely on cheese, and I happen to like nearly all varieties of cheese from Switzerland. Raclette is a favorite.
