Finally, all the cheeses you need to know are on one handy chart

If you've ever had trouble identifying a wheel of cheese, then this cheese knowledge wheel could come in handy.

Lingering over the counter of your local cheese-monger, too embarrassed to ask, "Is taleggio made of cow's milk or sheep's?" getting a hard Idaho Goatster instead of a soft Sainte-Maure de Touraine because you blacked out when you saw there was more than one type of goat cheese... Never again will you have to suffer the indignity of cheese ignorance.

This handy wheel features dozens of the most common cheeses, scaled from soft to hard and organized by the type of milk they're made from. Not only is it cool to realize you've been eating something that came out of a sheep all these years (here's lookin' at you, feta), but the wheel also opens up new possibilities in the kitchen. Parmesan may be your go-to, but another hard cheese, like pecorino Romano, might be just as good. Or swap out a creamy Brie for Crottin de Chavignol to smear on crostini at your next soiree.

Because of this chart, you'll be able to impress party guests, future dates, perhaps even your local deli worker with your newfound understanding of everyone's favorite dairy product. So bookmark this page for easy reference, or start memorizing — cheesalicious knowledge is culinary power.Finally, all the cheeses you need to know are on one handy chart
