Upcoming Cheese Events
Did you know that cheese is one of the best available sources of calcium and protein, as well as phosphorus? And that it is also full of vital nutrients and minerals? That and it tastes great too! Basically, cheese is a whole load of goodness packed into one scrumptious bite!
When preparing a cheese board, always start with a cheese friendly surface like wood, tile or marble. Don’t forget to buy enough cheese for the occasion, usually 1-1½ ounces per person per cheese. Cheeses are best served in odd numbers (arranged according to flavor) with a common theme, like country of origin or type. Always use separate knives for each cheese, and remember to serve them at room temperature for best flavor.
