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.

Burrata and fresh mozzarella are both fresh pasta filata cheeses. The term “pasta filata” translates to spun paste and refers to the cheesemaking process in which the curds are dipped in hot water and then kneaded and stretched into parallel strands.
