You may want to be sitting down for this… TODAY 🧀 IS 🧀 NATIONAL 🧀 CHEESE  🧀 DAY. June 3rd is National Cheese Day!!! Every year, Americans eat about 30 pounds of cheese, and if you’re French, it’s closer to 50. For cheese lovers, the word “love” doesn’t quite go far enough to describe our passion and devotion to cheese. Whether oozing out of a sandwich, melting on a nacho, piled on pizza or sliced on its own, cheese is the most important culinary creation in the history of the world.  The conclusion? Cheese is necessary for the continued survival of the human race. And so, today is that sacred day  to honor the glory and majesty that is cheese.

Great Gifts for the Keto & Low Carb Lifestyles

Let’s face it – food is one of life’s greatest pleasures. So it’s only natural that food makes a wonderful gift! Whether the recipient is personal or professional, giving high-quality delectable food gifts is pretty much guaranteed to be a hit. However, what if the person you’re shopping for is on a restricted diet, like Keto, Atkins or Low Carb? That’s where GiftTree comes in! Here are some great Low Carb and Keto gift ideas! Low-carbohydrate, and more recently, Ketogenic diets have seen a surge in popularity. Opting for high-fat, low-carb and low-sugar foods pushes the body into a mode where it’s burning fat for fuel, rather than getting its energy from the intake of sugar and carbs. Many Americans are choosing to fill up on meats, cheese, eggs and veggies, while avoiding sweets, pasta, potatoes, bread and rice. We have tons of options that are perfect for recipients who are living the low-carb and Keto life.   Gift Ideas for Keto & Low Carb Diets The French Connection Relax in luxury with this spread of French cheeses and charcuterie that’s nothing short of magnifique!

The Best Cheese I Ever Ate

The Best Cheese I Ever Ate

What’s the best cheese you ever ate? It’s not an easy question to answer, especially if you’re a cheese lover. This Sunday, January 20 is National Cheese Lover’s Day, and if you’re anything like us here at GiftTree,  the word “love” doesn’t quite go far enough to describe our passion and devotion to cheese. To us, cheese is probably the most important culinary creation in the history of the world. Plainly put, cheese is necessary for the continued survival of the human race. With this Sunday being that wonderful day to honor the glory and majesty that is cheese, we think the best way to celebrate is telling the cheesiest stories we know. The Best Cheese I Ever Ate Cheese Tales from the GiftTree Tastemakers   “They say a song can take you back to a place, a time, and evoke your favorite memories.  That’s all well and good, but you can’t eat a song.  What you can eat is cheese, and my recommendation is Pedrozo Dairy & Cheese Company’s Black Butte Reserve. This golden wheel of glory is all that is best and bright in the world.  Made only in the spring time, when the Northern California grasses are tender, green and wave like the seas, this cheese is aged to perfect sharpness.  Each bite starts with the sweet hint of verdant fields and grows into notes of caramel and then finishes with the sharp tang that begs for another taste.  It’s the perfect noshing cheese, and not for the faint of heart! ” – Jen *** “The best cheese I ever ate is Époisses, from Burgundy. I love ‘the good stink’...
