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.

Flecked with chilies, pepper jack is a blend of creamy, mild monterey jack with (typically) green and red jalapeno peppers. The peppers give this cheese a spicy kick, and the level of heat varies by brand.
