There is no doubt in my mind that Cabot knows how to promote their cheeses. Not only do they send new, free cheese on a regular basis, which is awesome in of itself, they also send little extras that make their package even more amazing. […]
Editor’s Note: Please make sure not to miss the other entries in the Free Lunch series. All cheese used in Free Lunch was sent for free by the creameries themselves without any knowledge of how it would be used.
Cheese, in my opinion, is one of the most amazing ingredients in the world. Each and every time I try a new cheese or return back to an old favorite, it is like I am returning home. It is one of the best feelings, I, as a person, experience on a somewhat regular basis. And yet, I have only started to skim the surface of all the cheeses available. I am, by all accounts still a novice but I am enjoying every minute of the ride. This blog is only helping to increase my knowledge and hopefully educate you as well.
Yes, this is the final part of the Free Lunch series, but after a short break, I will be back with a new series, Local Lunch, highlighting three local, Ohio cheeses. I hope you join me for that. Long live the cheese…
The flavor of cheese can change greatly with the slightest change to a recipe or aged for an extra month or two. One Cheddar can taste so absolutely different from another for the smallest reasons. I am no cheesemaker or chemist or anything like that just yet, so I don’t know the exact details but it all most definitely intrigues me.
There is something special about cheese. I hope you agree as well. (more…)
Over the past week, I had been planning to make a brand new grilled cheese featuring homemade cauliflower puree. However, there was always something that stopped me. Not enough time, too many errands, etc. It all changed on Saturday when us here in Cleveland were […]
Recently, I created a unique grilled cheese, highlighting Cabot Jalapeno Light Cheddar, which was sent directly from Cabot. The Chili Mayo & Cabot Jalapeno Light Cheddar Grilled Cheese, turned out amazingly well and was absolutely delicious. The only problem was, I had yet to use the Cabot Light Sharp Cheddar that was also sent to me. It was time to correct that.
Yes, all of this cheese was sent to me free of charge. Yes, all of this cheese is light. Yes, all of this cheese is delicious, including the Jalapeno Light Cheddar. In my previous Cabot entry, I said the cheese was good and recommended it to everyone. That opinion hasn’t changed in the least, it has actually become more concrete and more intense. While making this grilled cheese and other meals, I constantly found myself grating some while also slicing pieces to eat. Some go into the grilled cheese, some go in the mouth. The flavor and texture of this Sharp Light Cheddar combine for a really good cheese that you wouldn’t realize was light unless you saw the packaging. Again, I strongly recommend Cabot Jalapeno Light Cheddar and Cabot Light Sharp Cheddar to all that are currently reading…and not just because Cabot was so kind to send it to me for free. (more…)
Recently, I had taken a break from grilled cheese sandwiches as culinary classes were winding down for the semester and I wanted to focus on my studies. I had a final practicum consisting of knife skills and recipe, as well as a country presentation. Oh […]
