Do you have questions when shopping for cheese? Ask the cheesemonger! A cheesemonger specializes in the buying and selling of high-quality cheese, usually available in the specialty section of a grocery store or cheese shop.

Crumbling a blue cheese wedge is easy! Place the wedge into the freezer for about 30 minutes; then crumble with a knife. Blue cheese softens quickly at room temperature. For best results, keep the cheese cold for easier handling.
