Q: Is there such thing as Chinese cheese?

I love cheese. I come from the states and I can get cheese there inexpensively, however,here in Guangzhou it's so expensive because it's imported. So I want to know if maybe there is a Chinese-made cheese that is not so pricy.

20 years ago, in San Francisco Chinatown, tofu was introduced to me as 'tofu cheese'. I bought a small slab of tofu, and ate small piece of it. Tofu tastes no different than soap, without preparation. 

 

I have not heard or seen Chinese caw, sheep or goat milk cheese.

 

Maybe, you should ask Chinese milk producers about it.

Actually the major dairy producers in Shandong produce some remarkably good European-type cheeses -- not the plastic wrapped cellophane crap but really good European-like cheddars (white and yellow), an imitation Gouda that I quite like, and even a local kind of Mozzarella (the Italians thumb it down but I like it).  The problem is that it is irregularly stocked in all of the major supermarkets and when it is stocked, it doesn't last very long.

 

I will stop in at R*T Mart over the weekend to see if I can give you the brand name.

 

In any case, you are in Guangzhou -- try Metro -- it carries an entire line of cheese, and the Park-n-Shop on Tian He Bei Lu also carries cheese (second floor).

 

Otherwise, there is that wonderful gourmet shop in the basement of the tallest building in Guangzhou (forget the name now).

BHGAL:

tai koo hui or tai hoo kui, mall just west of tianhe cun mall    shipaiqiao ...has cheese....and the Metro place requires a membership card, kind of like Costco, back home...........I have got in with just passport, or just a business card may work, they can't read it anyways.

Metro does not charge for a membership. Just take your passport and business card and they will issue you a membership card.

Yes there are some interesting variations in the grasslands around Mongolia including goat's milk. The flavour tends to be very strong and usually not acceptable to the western taste.

 

My colleague, who is a dairy technologist from France and very knowledgeable about traditional cheeses, met a Chinese guy networking in Beijing. Apparently, this guy has studied cheese technology in Europe and established a small company making various traditional flavours. My colleague told me the quality generally wasn't too bad but he needed to work a little on the acidity and technical aspects of production. It will be interesting to see how this guy develops his business.

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
