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.
As a locally owned and operated grocer, Nugget Markets takes great pride in offering our guests top-quality products from local farms and producers. One of our favorite cheese producers is Nicasio Valley Cheese Company, an organic farmstead cheesemaker from the hills of Marin County in California. Their award-winning organic artisan cheeses range from their creamy brie and made-to-melt Raclette to their washed rind wonder, Square, and famous Foggy Morning. With a touch of fruit and some charcuterie, you’ve got lunch or a snack already plated!
It's summertime and the snacking is easy! When you don't want to turn on the stove or oven, snack meals are a great solution. Get started with Ines Rosales Tortas from Spain, topped with your choice of sweet or savory toppings. Their delicious handmade crackers are made with 100% natural ingredients and are available in a variety of flavors with no additives, enhancers or preservatives. Try these tasty combos our chef put together, or create your own!
