Thought of the Day

One thing is definite, I need a cup of coffee in the morning.

The Cheese Shop

Cheese is perfect as an appetizer or snack. When served to guests gourmet cheese will make a lasting impression. Most cheeses are best served with a plain cracker or breadstick so as to not detract from the flavor. Many types of imported cheese are perfect for any occasion, whether formal entertaining or a casual snack with friends or family.

A nice way to serve cheese to guest is to arrange on a nice platter or serving board. Place a few seedless grapes around edge of plate and serve with a small bowl or saucer of crackers. You can also lay sliced cheese on a light bed of lettuce leaves and garnish with a couple of cherry tomatoes.

Our Favorite Gourmet Cheeses


Gouda Light

This very special light Gouda cheese is imported from Holland, the homeland of Goudas. Holland Gouda Light is a lower calorie yet flavorful cheese that goes well with crackers, fruit and California white wine. Our favorite with this cheese is a Chardonnay by Cakebread Cellars. Tangy, mild and firm, you will love this light Gouda from Holland


Swiss Gruyere

This extra special delicacy from the Gruyere district of Switzerland is well known as the basic ingredient in fondue. But with its delightfully nutty, spicy, full flavor, it is delicious as a table cheese as well. We say it is grand because a whole wheel of Gruyere weighs about 80 pounds. In fact, it takes over 100 gallons of milk to make a single wheel of Gruyere


Humboldt Fog

This beautiful round wheel has a center layer of vegetable ash and an exterior of ash and white mold that is reminiscent of the early morning fog. The white pate develops a soft runny edge with age.
