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.

When serving cheese with bold flavors, refresh the taste buds with fresh and dried fruits, nuts or sour gerkins. Their simple flavors won’t compete with the cheese.
