Is cheese a dessert?

There are dessert forms of cheese available in markets and grocery shops and offered in restaurants too. In a course meal, this dessert cheese is served after the salad or the main dish.

This is common in Europe. Unlike in North America, in Europe desserts are not always a composition of syrupy sweetness and fatty cream.

Nor are they always with an elaborate preparation and cooking or baking time. Simple cheese can serve the purpose there.

Cheese comes in a variety of flavors. It can be sweet or it can be savory. Any fine cheese will do in the dessert.

And they can be made from goat cheese or old Dutch Gouda (aged Gouda), fontina, burrata, comte, Danish blue cheese, mascarpone, havarti, fresh ricotta, emmentaler, pecorino, Brillat Savarin with Papaya, or brie.
