What is a Cheesemonger?

someone who sells cheese

That of course is the simple definition of what we do. We sell cheese; but really our job is more complex than that. We act as the liaison between the producer and you the consumer, we tend to the cheese until its sold, and we advise and educate you so you can make the best choice possible. A true cheesemonger is passionate about cheese and should be able to recommend which cheeses pair well with which foods and wines. They always know which cheese is at its peak and in season. A good cheesemonger is knowledgeable and approachable and should always offer a taste. In other words, a good cheesemonger will forge a relationship with you, will learn your preferences and will happily share their passion. It is essentially an old fashioned way of shopping for food, but in a world of super sized box stores and impersonal grocery chains it can be a refreshing.

We've been honing our skills these last two years and we've been invited to participate in the Cheesemonger Invitational in NYC! 40 cheesemongers from around the country and Australia will compete for the title against the backdrop of the biggest cheese party you've ever seen.
