November Begins The Holiday Season

Friday, November 6th, 2015

November is finally here and that means the holidays are just around the corner. Thanksgiving is just 20 days away! It’s best to start planning now that way you aren’t overly stressed when the day finally gets here. The easiest appetizer to serve at Thanksgiving is a cheeseboard!

The first step in planning your cheeseboard is picking the cheese. We recommend choosing both hard and soft cheeses or cheeses that range from mild in flavor to pungent . Our Brie, Goat, Fol Epi and St. Agur are a fabulous combination. The brie is soft and mild. The goat is a little harder but tangy in flavor. Fol Epi has a nutty flavor and is similar to swiss cheese. Lastly, St. Agur is a creamy, rich blue cheese. There will surely be a cheese for everyone!

Next pick a variety of sides to pair with your cheese. Fruit and nuts are most popular. We recommend apples, grapes and a raspberry preserve. For nuts try walnuts and almonds.

Last, choose your bread and crackers. We recommend toasting some baguette while also providing a couple selections of crackers. The cheese plate should take minutes to prepare but will hopefully stick with your guests for a long time!

January is National Soup Month!

Monday, January 9th, 2012


You may not know it, but January is officially National Soup Month. It’s a celebration of the delight of the lovely comfort food. Especially in winter – the coldest time of year – it’s always a good idea to warm up with a bowl of delicious soup!

There is a variety of kinds of soup: thick and clear, cold and hot, with meat or vegan. Add some St. Agur cheese to a simple Creamy mushroom soup recipe or add Saint Albray cheese to potato leek soup to create unique gourmet flavor!

One of our current favorites is gourmet cheese soups: Brie and Leek Soup with Sherry, French Onion Soup with Compté and Fol Epi, Cream of Cauliflower Soup with Saint Agur. They take just 30 minutes to make and are perfect on any chilly winter evening!

Have a worm and tasty Soup Month!
