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.

Asiago cheese is aged to develop sharp, buttery and nutty flavors that resemble a cross between aged cheddar and parmesan. For easier handling, bring asiago to room temperature before grating.
