Get Ready For National Cheese Day

Sundays are the perfect day relaxing with comfort food. Which is why it makes perfect sense that National Cheese Day is this Sunday! Cheese is the cornerstone of many of our favorite comfort foods: grilled cheese, macaroni and cheese, fondue, pizza, the list goes on and on. In honor of National Cheese Day we recommend making sure your fridge is fully stocked with cheesy deliciousness. Looking for the perfect cheese to round out your selection? Get ready for National Cheese Day with these cheese gifts! Deluxe Cured Meats and Imported Cheese Slate Carefully-aged Cantalet Dore, Sottocenere and Petit basque cheeses complement the heritage flavors of two cured Iberico meats. Cantalet Dore is sometimes described as the French cousin of English Farmhouse Cheddar. A semi-hard cow’s milk cheese, it complements a vast variety of red wines. Petit Basque is a succulent and creamy sheep’s milk cheese with notes of roasted nuts and stone fruit. Sottocenere is from the Northern Italian region of Veneto. This irresistible semi-soft cheese is laced with delicate flecks of truffle. The rind is rubbed in truffle oil and aged in a coating of nutmeg, coriander, cinnamon, licorice, cloves, and fennel. A thin layer of ash covers the spiced rind as the cheese ages, which is where this creamy cheese gets its name – Sottocenere essentially means “under ash”. This impressive combination of cheese and charcuterie is sure to delight your palate! Gourmet Cheese Dome Give the ultimate cheese party with this selection of five gourmet cheeses presented on an acacia wood board and a stately glass dome. Whether it’s the elderflower-flecked La Cigogne from Alsace or...
It’s National Wine Day

It’s National Wine Day

It’s National Wine Day! That’s right, today is the day that we honor a beverage that has been a part of human culture and history for thousands of years. Whether red, white, or rosé today is the perfect excuse to uncork a bottle. To enhance your experience, we’d like to share a few of our favorite wine tips and tricks with you! Finding the Right Glass It can seem like there is a never-ending assortment of wine glasses on the market, but these guidelines can help you narrow down the perfect glass. For Red Wine: Look for a glass with a wider bowl. This will allow for the wine to “breathe” and come into contact with air. This contact with the air is important because it releases the wine’s aroma. A tapered or flared style of wine glass can be very beneficial helping you swirl your wine and expose it to oxidation, while holding the wine’s aroma in the glass for you. For White Wine: Look for a U shaped, upright glass. Lighter, fruitier wines will do well in smaller glasses. A smaller glass will also keep the wine cooler than if it was served in a larger glass. Keeping Your Glasses Clean Taking care of wine glasses can be an art form. You don’t want anything to affect your wine, and that includes particles on the glass. To clean your glass hold it by the bottom of bowl, instead of the fragile glass stem. Rinse glasses in warm water, don’t use extremely hot water because this can cause the glass to crack. Use a long-handled sponge to clean...
