Cheese Expert Guesses Cheap vs Expensive Cheeses | Price Points | Epicurious

In the premiere episode of ‘Price Points’, Epicurious challenged cheese expert and noted author Liz Thorpe to guess which one of two cheeses was more expensive. Liz breaks down cheap vs expensive parmesan cheese, goat cheese, gruyère cheese, feta cheese, and blue cheese. For each round of cheap cheese vs expensive cheese, Liz visually analyzed, smelled, then executed a taste test before guessing which cheese cost more. Once the prices were revealed, Thorpe explained why a specific cheese making process costs more and dives into the specifics of how to make the different cheeses.

  1. As a cheese enjoyer but in no way a connoisseur sometimes i can say some cheese is better than others and certains things are simply not cheese, but I enjoy cheese in general so just having cheese makes me very happy

  2. Great, now i have to do my own research to find out what type of cheese gets wrapped in leaves.

  3. I love cheese

    PS❤ I have a short Christmas story ????

  4. this lady defitenly can has some of my cheese if u know what i mean ;P * grabs groin

  5. What?! No comparison of Kraft Singles vs runny cheese in a jar? How are we to know what to put on the nachos for our husbands' and his friends game day party?

  6. Usually even bad cheese is still good, but good cheese is even better ????????????

  7. Unless you shaved it, the Parmigiano Reggiano MUST have the typical rind with the punctured words Parmigiano Reggiano. If it hasn't got it, then it's not the Original PR but just another imitation.

  8. I don’t personally fw epicurious but I love this video and this cheese woman ????

  9. I love blue cheese, but I’ve never once smelled it and thought, “mm fruity”

  10. I learned from my grandma (she went on a trip to some European cities) that the cheese produced where I live is actually very soft, and it would take a lot for us to get used to The Good Cheese™️.
    So, with that in mind, I'll gladly take that fresh goat cheese from you if you don't want it.

  11. I haven't read all the comments but I'm pretty certain the last blue cheese is the Organic Rogue River Creamery Blue that is released in limited edition in November.

    I still have a couple wedges of it left at my shop. I might have to bring one home before it's gone.


    Edit: worth it. quality video right there. thank u youtube algorithm for not giving up on me.

  13. i think except the feta this was mostly common sense. not really hard to tell the difference

  14. The Blue Cheese (the expensive one) I think is the one that won the 2019 “Best Cheese in the World”. First time the US has ever won…..from Rogue in Oregon.

  15. I’m not even going to watch the video. I’m just here to ask if anyone knows how I could become a cheese expert
