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.

Aged cheddar is crumbly and creamy with a rich, nutty flavor that becomes increasingly sharp and complex with age. Delicious in baked goods, the cheddar flavor remains after baking.
