Best Cheeses

Critics, upstate: One of the coolest things about Cheese Chalet is that customers can sample any of its 50-plus types of cheese at any time. The Chalet’s selection spans at least 10 countries, including favorites like cave-aged Swiss Gruyère, Spanish Manchego, double cream Brie and sharp Canadian cheddar. For 32 years, owners Henry and Carol Huffman have sold quality cheese at a reasonable price. Their hot sweet raspberry chipotle spread is a treat. (5337A Limestone Road, Wilmington, 239-5548)

Critics, downstate: Country Cheese Corner is open Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays only, so you can bet those focused on fromage happily queue up for five types of Ohio Swiss, six creamy cheddars, and mozzarella from Wisconsin and New York. Our picks: the blue cheese from Denmark and a sharp provolone from Italy. Owner Rebecca Petersheim lives in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, so she brings fresh cream cheese spreads with her to Dover. The shop also specializes in cheese and meat platters, but do consider adding fruit. Here, plates are abundant with fresh pineapple, strawberries, grapes and watermelon (in season) and, of course, cheese. (550 S. New St., Dover, 674-0331)
