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.

Juustoleipa means "bread cheese" in Finnish. It has a soft, buttery texture and mild, slightly sweet flavor. It's baked in special ovens when crafted, giving it a toasty, caramelized crust.
