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.

This one-of-a-kind cheese won seven consecutive years at the American Cheese Society Cheese Competition. Seven! Named after the Spanish word for “cinnamon,” this Spanish-inspired aged beauty has a striking basket-weave rind that’s hand-rubbed with a blend of cinnamon and paprika for its signature reddish-orange rind and sweet flavor.
