Do you have questions when shopping for cheese? Ask the cheesemonger! A cheesemonger specializes in the buying and selling of high-quality cheese, usually available in the specialty section of a grocery store or cheese shop. Knowledgeable and passionate, a cheesemonger is a go-to resource for cheese varieties and pairings, proper cheese storage and handling, its cooking applications and cheese brand information.

Have a wedge of blue cheese? It's easy to make crumbles. Place the wedge into the freezer for about 30 minutes; then crumble with a knife. For best results, keep the cheese cold for easier handling.
