@TheRecipeDoctor - Do you have any recommendations for cheese options that could be great for a guest who is lactose intolerant?

Some Cheeses May be an Option for People with Lactose Intolerance--Some types of cheese may be low in lactose (it can vary based on the specific brand) and may be tolerated by people with lactose intolerance. Firmer aged cheeses like cheddar, Parmesan, Gouda, gruyere, Jarlsberg and Edam, tend to be lower in lactose. And ripened cheeses like camembert, brie and blue cheese tend to contain lower lactose levels as well. You could start off with a small amount of these cheeses and test the waters (so to speak). It might also help improve tolerance by enjoying smaller amounts of these cheeses with non-lactose containing foods.
