Nutritional Benefits of Cheese
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.
Gourmet to Go
From appetizers to entrées, breakfast to dessert, we offer all sorts of delicious chef–prepared foods made fresh in our kitchens with the highest quality ingredients.
How do you fondue? Fun, easy and downright delicious, fantastic fondue is as simple as shredded cheese melted into wine, beer or broth until it transforms into a pot of gooey goodness. Make your own flawless fondue with these handy fondues and don’ts from our talented cheese pros!
When exceptionally attentive makers have true passion and dedication to their craft, it shows through in their distinctive, high-quality creations. That’s why our Specialty Cheese Department is proud to participate in the American Artisan Cheese program, which highlights and promotes boutique family-owned producers who—at the risk of being a little cheesy—are as gouda as gold.
