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.

Mozzarella and provolone cheeses are crafted with the same stretchy techniques, but provolone is made with whole milk and has different cultures. Provolone has a buttery flavor with just a hint of sharpness or more, depending on age.
