Perhaps the most difficult aspect of my study abroad experience in India was how much I missed cheese. I am not being facetious. Studying abroad puts things in perspective, so to speak, and one is supposed to realize her greatest fears, discomforts, and priorities while floundering through a foreign world. Living in Rajasthan, India for six months, made me realize that I hold in high esteem the availability of a wide range of cheeses in the US. Blue; Gouda; Smoked Gouda; Wisconsin Cheddar; Mozzarella; Goat; Sheep’s Milk- the list could go on forever. Americans hold cheese in high priority. We like the subtle and dramatic to be present in our food.
