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. Prior to talking about Kerrygold Dubliner, […]
Recently, I was lucky enough to be sent free cheese courtesy of both Kerrygold [Instagram] and Cabot [Instagram]. In honor of this free cheese, and Grilled Cheese Month 2014, I have created the series, Free Lunch. In this series, I will be creating 4 different […]
When an Irish creamery sends you a ton of free cheese and butter in late February/early March, it is their way of telling you, use their product to create a St. Patrick’s Day grilled cheese. It is a no-brainer in my opinion and that is exactly what I did.
A couple weeks ago, as evidenced by the photo below, Kerrygold not only sent me 7 different varieties of cheese, they also included 4 different varieties of butter. I had planned to make a non-holiday related grilled cheese so many different times but life simply got in the way. As the days passed, I realized we were so close to St. Patrick’s Day that I needed to make a holiday grilled cheese, just as I did last year. I needed to improve upon last year’s St. Patrick’s Day Irish Soda Bread Grilled Cheese and make something special. I succeeded beyond my wildest dreams and who would have guessed that kale would be included? (more…)
I have a story for you, the reader. As everyone already knows, I have an unhealthy obsession of Kerrygold, which has continually been fueled by free coupons sent directly from the cheese maker itself. That obsession only increased in the past week. A week ago Wednesday, I […]
I don’t want to seem like I have become an employee of Kerrygold, but when they make great cheeses and keep sending you free coupons, you kind of have to keep making creations (aka grilled cheese sandwiches) using their products. And then blog about them. For the world to see.
Recently, Kerrygold decided to send me, unannounced, “St. Patrick’s Day Party In A Box.” As you can see from the photo above, and here, they sent me ton of awesome St. Patrick’s Day party supplies, an awesome cookbook, as well as more coupons for free Kerrygold cheese. It was their subtle way of saying, “use these coupons to buy Kerrygold cheese, use that cheese to make a kick ass St. Patrick’s Day grilled cheese and then blog about it.”
Challenge. Accepted. With Irish Soda Bread. (more…)
With more Kerrygold coupons burning a hole in my pocket, and my discovery of Kerrygold Cashel Blue cheese, I thought it was time to make one more Kerrygold grilled cheese creation. With the sous chef and myself recently purchasing two different kinds of quiche, I […]
With a few days off from work and not much to do, I recently headed to Whole Foods hoping to discover some great cheese in the remnant basket. Unfortunately, I had no luck. There were a few small pieces of a truffle cheese but I couldn’t justify the $5 price tag for such a small piece of cheese. I felt that same way with a cheese that was on sale for $30/lb (originally $35/lb). The Whole Foods description was not very convincing nor was the lack of intriguing smell. I passed. Instead I decided on a cheese that I had never seen before (Iverrnia) from a company that I love (Kerrygold). I made the right decision.
I have tried Kerrygold’s Dubliner cheese, among others and fallen in love with them. Therefore, I was excited to try a Kerrygold cheese that I didn’t even knew existed: Kerrygold’s Ivernia Cheese. (more…)
