I Ain’t Scared of No Cheese
People tend to fear what they don’t know and with thousands of different cheese on the market, it’s only naturally to be a little intimidated.
But it doesn’t take an expert or even a connoisseur to enjoy cheese – it just takes a hungry mouth.
Here are three reasons why you shouldn’t be afraid of the cheese counter.
1. Because Eating Cheese is Easy
You don’t need to know anything about food or cooking to buy yourself some cheese. Just start with something you’re familiar with, like the
Parmigiano Reggiano you’re used to grating on your pasta. Get yourself a wedge, taste it, and take note of what you like about it.
Is it that crunchy texture? Then pick another cheese that looks similar, like an aged gouda, and give it a try.
2. Because cheesemongers are there to help you
People feel out of their element in a cheese shop, especially when there are those intimidating experts lurking behind the counter. But a cheesemonger does not want to make you feel stupid, we’re here to hold your hand and gently guide you into this intimidating world of artisan cheese.
Tell us what cheese you normally like, and we’ll introduce you to something new.
Because cheese just wants to be loved.
Cheese is not going to judge your life choices, it just wants to make you happy. A lot of people think cheese is fancy and unapproachable, but it’s really just misunderstood. Like the monster in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, it just wants to be loved.
So go ahead and take a big brave bite!
