Which country has the most cheese-centric cuisine?

This thread,, got me thinking.

What cuisine uses the most cheese in their preps?

Is it Italian? Mexican? French? Spanish?

Some other cuisine?

  1. Switzerland, England, Ireland, France, Italy? USA ;)

    1. My guess would be us (U.S.)...we'll put cheese in/on/under anything. Not that that's such a bad thing...

      1. 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?

        1. the one with the most underdevolped pallet. so france

            Hey, the french have drones, on the lookout!

          2. 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.
