Cheesemonger Tip

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.

Juustoleipa, or bread cheese, has a soft, buttery texture and mild, slightly sweet flavor. When crafted, it's baked in special ovens giving it a toasty, caramelized crust.
