Say Cheese Again!Check out last week's cheese recipes in this two-part recipe collection.
Irish cheese is hot, and I don't mean only when it's melted. Popular
brands like Kerrygold's Blarney, Swiss, Vintage Cheddar, and its latest,
Dubliner, along with some newer imports from farmhouse cheesemakers, are a
great way to bring a touch of home to the Irish abroad. Even if you don't
live in an Irish neighborhood where you can run to the corner deli for a
cheese "fix," thanks to on-line shopping, keeping Irish cheese in your fridge
is only a click away. As soon as you find it, try it in these delicious
recipes, two this week and two next, or order from the on-line sources
