A. he opined that such cheese to be so not only for its great historical and intrinsic worth but also making contributions to ﬂavor and nutritive value of many different food preparations : Not only X but also Y

B. he opined that such cheese be so not only for its great historical and intrinsic worth but also for its contributions to ﬂavor and nutritive value of many different food preparations : Correct

C. he opined that such cheese was so not only for its great historical and intrinsic worth but also its contributions to ﬂavor and nutritive value of many different food preparations : Not only X but also Y (For is missing after but also)

D. he opined that such cheese had been so not only for its great historical and intrinsic worth but also for its flavor and contributions to nutritive value of many different food preparations : Had been = there is no indication of two action, so past perfect is wrong. Its flavor : meaning error: it is not about cheese's flavor, its about flavor of different food preparation

E. he opined that it be so not only for its great historical and intrinsic worth but also its contributions to flavor and nutritive value of many different food preparations : Same as in C.

opine that - require usage of verb in base form so "be"
Not only ... but also parallelism
