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.

Hook's One Year Sharp Cheddar has a nice flavor; it's a little sharper than a medium cheddar. After cooking, the aged cheddar gives a rich, cheesy flavor to the potatoes.
