Hey cheeseheads! Here's a serious Website for you. CheeseNet houses a world of information on characteristics of various cheeses, the history of cheese, facts about cheesemaking, cheese in poetry and fiction, plus much more. A major highlight of the site is the world cheese Index (WCI), an illustrated guide to the geography, ingredients, texture, and flavor of over 100 cheeses. The WCI, which has a helpful user guide, is indexed by country and cheese name. Some of the more unusual cheeses you'll find listed are Romanian Telemea, Spanish Manchengo, and German Bergader. Other highlights of the site include a cheese message board and nifty cheese links (the official site of Stilton, for example). The site's administrator, Kyle Whelliston, provides references and acknowledgements for all of his cheesy information.
