Brazil has two cheese varieties that are among the 50 best in the world. Canastra and Coalho (curd) cheese rank 12th and 38th, respectively.
TasteAtlas is a platform with over 10,000 registered and mapped foods and beverages, considered an encyclopedia of world foods.
It conducts popular surveys for various rankings each year, including World’s Best Cheeses.
In 2023, two Brazilian kinds of cheese will be on the list. Italy’s Parmigiano Reggiano tops the rankings.
As might be expected, the top ten include nine kinds of cheese made in Italy and only one Portuguese cheese, Serra da Estrela . . .
