Do you have to drop huge wads of cash at a fancy cheese shop to have an Awesome Cheese Party? NOPE, YOU DON’T.
this is actually something I stupidly care about but I know nothing about cheese other than it tastes great.
For when my friends and I manage to get that wine & cheese party together…..
I LOVE CHEESE.
Things to know from a professional cheesemonger:
1. This is good advice and all true and fab if you’re in a hurry.
2. However. A good cheese shop will save you money because we cut to order and cut fresh. Cheese is a living food, and it doesn’t do well vacuum packed or sealed in plastic. Yes, there is a noticeable difference in taste and texture.
3. All of the cheeses listed above are mass produced (obviously), but a good cheese shop will have cheeses produced in smaller batches, often by family run operations around the world. That’s really worth supporting, *and* you’ll have the chance to expand your horizons.
One day I will have the cheesiest cheese party.
I want to have a cheese party and hoard all the brie for myself.
