Are you ready to embark on a magical journey into the world of European cheeses? As we start to get into it, you may come to realize that most of these classic cheeses are ones you not only have heard of, but eat pretty regularly. So, without further ado, here are four legendary European cheeses that we love.


As mentioned, some of these cheeses you’ve already eaten countless times before—and Mozzarella is obviously one of them. Yes, contrary to what some may believe, Mozzarella is not American—it’s pure Italian, baby.


As long as we’re in Italy, let’s merge into another one of our favorite cheeses from that region: Parmesan. Known best for its iconic blend of Parmigiano Reggiano, this cheese is simply a divine work of art.


Let’s travel now to the beautiful country of France, which is also known for its amazing variety of cheeses. One of our favorites of all time comes from France—the lovely, creamy, and tasty Brie. We’d recommend trying it out if you ever get a chance!

Tête de Moine

Since we added cheeses that you know well, we figured we’d throw one in that you’ve likely never heard of. Tête de Moine is one of Switzerland’s staple cheeses, though it seems to be a well kept secret from the rest of the world.
