No, pepper-jack is a semi-soft cheese.

Hard cheese would be parmesan, romano, asiago, provelone, etc.

Semi hard cheeses are cheddar, Jarlsberg, Gouda, etc.

Thanks the menu just says hard cheese. It looks like all the cheeses that i eat aren't considered hard. Can anyone tell me what asiago taste like. And how do know what's considered hard?

Hard cheeses are very firm to the touch. The are difficult to grate because of their "hardness:.

Cheses that give a bit when you touch them, are semi-hard (cheddar is a good example).

Asiago is a bit like Parmesan. It has a distinct flavor and is excellent with pastas and grain dishes.

I use cheese curds that I buy at the Tillamook Dairy at the Oregon Coast. I was told it was ok to use these. The nutrition and calories are the same as the other hard cheeses.. Yummo! Oh man I can't believe I actually said that.
