Welcome to February! Amongst the cold and dreary weather of the winter, February proves to be a fan-favorite month due to a few different occasions: Valentine’s Day and the Big Game! Though these two days are vastly different, both can be elevated with good company . . . and good cheese! Price Chopper/Market 32 is thrilled to announce our cheese of the month: BelGioioso Blue Cheese! End the age-old “ranch or blue cheese” debate with our robust and tangy, blue-veined cheese!  

BelGioioso Blue Cheese is a crumbly and creamy cheese made from cow’s milk while being pierced with small holes, allowing air to penetrate and facilitating the growth of beneficial mold. Paired nicely with cured meats, bread and grapes, blue cheese is the perfect accent for any charcuterie board. Enjoy your BelGioioso Blue Cheese with a bottle of Riesling or the taste of a bitter-sweet chocolate stout to elevate your cheese experience!

Happy New Year! Notorious for new beginnings, the new year is the perfect time to create new routines, take on a new hobby, travel to a new country . . . and buy a new cheese! Price Chopper/Market 32 is thrilled to announce our January Cheese of the Month: ALPENHAUS® LE GRUYERE® CHEESE. Bring Switzerland to your home with this wonderfully nutty and earthy cheese. Made with nothing but the best ingredients, this smooth and hard cheese is protected by a natural rind that accompanies its briny-dry, slightly piquant flavor.  

ALPENHAUS® LE GRUYERE® CHEESE is wonderful on its own and paired with other delicious fruits, such as figs, apples and pomegranate. Best for cooking, LE GREYERE tastes wonderful melted on top of meats and veggies, as well as a decadent fondue or soups. Pair this cheese with a Chardonnay for the perfect start to the year!

The holidays are in full swing, and we could not be more excited! This time of year calls for charcuterie boards, cheese and cracker appetizers, and cheese and wine pairings, which make us even more thrilled to announce our December Cheese of the Month: Wensleydale with Cranberries. Crafted from natural ingredients, this white cheese without a rind boasts a unique acidity and crumbly texture, while the cranberries contribute a juicy sweetness. Join us as we explore various ways to savor this delicious cheese.

Wensleydale cheese pairs well with fruits like apples and apricots, and is great for a charcuterie board or crumbled on a salad. Fruity ales or wines would also be delicious with this cheese. While this cheese is dry and crumbly, it is good for melting on a sub or sandwich.
