Types of cheeseEdit
- Arabellan cheddar
- Once described as "the most popular cheddar cheese of the Sea of Fallen Stars". It was a sturdy, orange cheese that travelled extremely well.
- Chessentan lotus cheese
- Popular in Chessenta and in the empires on the southeastern side of the Sea of Fallen Stars for a very long time, it was normally mixed with lotus flower petals, although there were other Chessentan cheeses that were mixed with less exotic petals, such as rose or honeysuckle.
- Death cheese
- Made from the milk of the deadly catoblepas. It was produced by monks who hired adventurers to herd and milk the catoblepas.
- Damarite red
- Also known as Bloodcheese, it came from the lands of the Bloodstone. It was made from goat's milk, which imparted a sharp, hearty, pungent tang.
- Elturian grey
- Reminiscent of blue cheese, but had black veins. It was also known as stonework or dwarfcheese, and had a distinctly pungent flavor.
- Farmer's cheese
- Also known as pot cheese or cottage cheese, it was mostly consumed locally as it did not travel well.
- Green calishite
- Made by the Calishites, who mixed curry into their cheeses to enhance the flavor. The potent cheese had an aquamarine hue due to the curry, and was extremely spicy.
- Luiren spring cheese
- Also known as Halfling's Cheese, or mind cheese, it was pungently aromatic and soft. Although not very tasty to humans, it had a profound effect on halflings, who reacted to it as if it were a strong wine or narcotic. In some instances, halflings could become addicted to it as they would to a mind-affecting drug.
- Mist cheese
- Produced in Loudwater Vale, it was a rich, soft white cheese that became translucent when sliced thinly. It was also known as Ethereal Cheese by the elves.
- Nut cheeses
- Most prevalent in Silverymoon, Mirabar, Sundabar, and the other cities of the Savage Frontier, they were a traditional way to preserve un-shelled nuts (such as hickory nuts, walnuts, and chestnuts).
- Pepper cheese
- A tangy, supple cheese created by mixing southern spices with a mixture of goat and cow cheese. It was easily identified by the rind, which was leathery and dotted with peppercorns.
- A heavy smoky cheese from Rashemen.
- Turmish brick
- A cheese mixed with the heavy red wine that was common among the Turmish. It was a sweet, crumbly, burgundy cheese, wrapped in red wax, and had an easily identifiable, rectangular shape.
- Vilhon blanc
- Made with a lighter wine than Turmish Brick, it was a lighter cheese with a sweet, delicate flavor. The cheese was typically consumed locally, and was rarely found beyond the Sea of Fallen Stars or Sembia.
- A salty, pungent, herbal goat cheese, produced in Vilkstead, capital of Utheraal. It was most popular in Sword Coast taverns.
- Also called eyed cheese, holed cheese, or arrow-shot, it was popular and common in Waterdeep.
- Yak butter
- A mild and delicate cream cheese made from yak milk. At one time, it could be found from the Spine of the World to the Hordelands.
