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. Knowledgeable and passionate, a cheesemonger is a go-to resource for cheese varieties and pairings, proper cheese storage and handling, its cooking applications and cheese brand information.

Wisconsin cheesemakers make romano with slightly more fat and a sharper, more assertive taste than parmesan cheese. Romano is also a delicious pairing with apples, pears, tomatoes, olives and pepperoncini.
