HAND = handkäse = handkase = harzer kase = harzer käse   Notes:   This German washed rind cheese is pungent and stinky.  It's good with beer, but it would over-power most wines.   Substitutes:  Mainz OR Harz OR Limburger

LIVAROT  Pronunciation:  LEE-vah-roh   Notes:  This excellent French cheese is in the washed-rind or "stinky" family.  Though pungent, it's not as overpowering as Limburger.  The rind is edible, but it's not for faint-hearted.  Substitutes:  Maroilles OR Limburger OR Harz OR Mainz OR Hand OR Brick (milder) OR Liederkranz (milder)

MAROILLES  Pronunciation:  mahr-WAHL  Notes:   This is a stinky washed-rind cheese from France that smells worse than it tastes.  You probably don't want to eat the pungent rind.  Use within a few days after purchasing. For best flavor, serve at room temperature.   Substitutes:  Livarot OR Pont-l'Evêque OR Reblochon OR Harz OR Mainz OR Hand OR Limburger

SCHLOSS = Schlosskäse = Schlosskase = castle cheese  Notes:  This Austrian cheese is a marvelous choice for people who like strong "stinky" cheeses.  It's good with beer, but it would overpower most wines.   Substitutes: Limburger OR Brie (not as stinky)

VALDEON  Notes:  This Spanish blue cheese is pungent enough to be interesting without being overpowering.  It's a good snacking cheese for adventurous guests.  Substitutes:   Cabrales (more pungent) OR Picone

MAYTAG BLUE   Notes:  This American blue cheese is pungent and crumbly.  Use it within a few days after purchasing. For best flavor, serve at room temperature.  Substitutes: Roquefort

TOMME CRAYEUSE CHEESE Pronunciation:  TUM cray-YOUZ  Notes:  This soft French cheese is rich and buttery.  Don't eat the rind.  Substitutes:  Tomme de Savoie OR Saint Nectaire OR Muenster

TELEME  Pronunciation:  TELL-uh-may  Notes:  This is a California cheese with a mild, nutty flavor.  The rind is edible.  Substitutes: Camembert OR jack

MUENSTER= Munster = Münster   Pronunciation:  MUHN-ster or MOON-ster  Notes:   When produced in Europe, Muenster is a mild-mannered member of the normally stinky washed-rind cheese family, though it becomes more pungent as it ages.  It's delicious with dark breads and beer or Gewurztraminer wine.  American muensters are much milder.  Substitutes:  jack OR brick OR Port du Salut OR Bel Paese

MIMOLETTE CHEESE = boule de Lille   Pronunciation:  mee-moh-LET  Notes:  This French cheese is similar to Parmesan cheese, only it's a brilliant orange.   Substitutes:  Parmesan

SAPSAGO = Sap sago = Schabziger  Notes:   This Swiss grating cheese is colored and flavored by a clover-like herb.  It's hard to find, but many seek it out as a low-fat substitute for Parmesan and Romano.  Substitutes:  Romano OR Parmesan OR nutritional yeast (This substitution works best if recipe calls for cheese to be sprinkled over a dish. Nutritional yeast is low in fat, high in protein and B vitamins, and it's not made with any animal products.)

CORSU VECCHIO CHEESE Notes:  This sheep's milk cheese comes from Corsica.
