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.

Brick cheese was named because cheesemakers originally used bricks to press moisture from the cheese and for its shape. The flavor of the cheese ranges from mild to pungent, depending on age.
