This cheese is the When Harry Met Sally of high-end cheese — white-bread, straight-forward, and adequately satisfying for 63% of men and women between ages 27 and 46. You can bring it to a dinner party full of strangers, and satisfy both the cheeserati and the cheese-oblivious. You can also mention its name at that same dinner party, and have an adequately interesting conversation perhaps punctuated by mild witticisms and/or mediocre analogies. Many of us may have a soft-spot for Dutch Parrano, and we may be ashamed of it. But at the same time most are quick to point out its undeniable — though not overwhelming — strengths. It's pleasantly salty. It nips at the tongue, slightly. One can place it on a fancy cracker, or a melt it inside a quesadilla, or eat it by itself. It doesn't mind. It's easy. Sometimes, we like easy things. Dutch Parrano reminds us that it's okay to like easy things, and to freely discuss them with strangers, and to save our energy for the more challenging things, like complicated, demanding French cheeses that have been aged in caves.
