Soft cheeses offer a truly unique taste to the cheese connoisseur. These cheeses typically aren't matured, and feature a milder taste and a richer, creamier texture than their firmer counterparts. Top soft cheeses can be spread onto toast, served with a fruit plate, or layered atop crackers – but unlike hard cheese, these soft varieties aren't ideal for cooking. Tasty soft cheeses are made in countries all over the world including France, Italy, and America.

What varieties will you find on this list of the best soft cheeses? Chèvre cheese is a delicious, easy-to-spread cheese made from goat's milk. Chèvre is delicious in salads and as an ingredient on a variety of gourmet sandwiches. Feta, the tangy Greek sheep's milk cheese, is another good soft cheese featured on this list. Brie is a popular soft cheese that many connoisseurs consider an acquired taste. Other great options that appear on this top soft cheese list include cottage cheese, Buchette, and mozzarella.

Which of these soft cheeses is the crème de la crème? That's up to you to decide. Give your favorite varieties a thumbs up to move them towards number one, and add any tasty soft cheeses that are missing.
