The 14 Best Gifts for Cheese Lovers
Cheesy Snacks and Treats
Made of a mix of blues from the legendary Rogue Creamery, this heaven-sent blue cheese powder is perfect for sprinkling over popcorn, chips, croutons, or the naked, buttered body of a lover.
Brins is a Brooklyn-based, women-owned jam company that makes some of my fav spreads and marmalades. They just released a new line of preserves in collaboration with The Met and the labels are absolutely stunning. Most people don’t like to drop coin on pricey jams, so do it for them and make their dreams come true. For the Chocolate Slut
2019 is the year that I discovered Violet Sky, a tiny little bean to bar chocolatier out of South Bend, and it has catapulted to my list of favorite accompaniments. I love their single-origin bars, which highlight the quality and complexity of their chocolates, but I’m also obsessed with their flavored bars, like their insanely delicious Banana Walnut. You have to contact Hans, the owner and maker, through his website to place an order. Tell him Cheese Sex Death sent ya!
The Best Cheese Tools and Toys
Nothing cuts as clean as a wire. This guy is amazing for slicing small soft-ripened cheeses into perfect slices. Use for bries, aged goats like Humboldt Fog, or logs of fresh chèvre.
Just like the cheese wire, this super skinny blade is great for slicing softies without smashing their pretty little bodies. Use for soft-ripened cheeses like brie and Taleggio, or creamy blues.
This sexy silver set has it all: a spreader for sofies, a skeleton knife for bries, a standard for firmies, and a spear-tip for crumbly cheeses.
A cheese pornographer’s dream! Lit by tea candles underneath the surface, this portable raclette setup lets you pour melted cheese onto anything you want.
This contraption is made exclusively for shaving Tête de Moine, a stinky Swiss cheese, into razor-thin blossoms. It’s for the dedicated cheese sluts out there.
These are the most beautiful boards for serving cheese: they’re durable and I love the way the cheese stands out against their matte darkness. You can even add a monogram too, if you order through Brooklyn Slate’s website. They even engrave their boards with the same process as epitaphs.
Cheese paper: it’s what every cheese lover needs. This European-made paper protects your cheese from the harsh environment of your fridge, helping to keep your cheeses fresh and free of unwanted mold. Now, I do work for this company (follow them on Instagram – it’s me!) but I’ve been obsessed for much longer. I recommend the storage bags – they’re super convenient and reusable.
If you have a baby in your life, make sure they’re following our lord Cheesus. This little picnic set comes with faux brie, salami, grapes, and crackers.
The Best Cheese Books
For the novice cheese slut! This is my all-time favorite cheese book, mostly because of the erotic descriptions.
For the curd nerd looking to branch out of their comfort zone. I love the way this book uses “gateway cheeses” as a means of seduction.
For the cheese slut who likes to cook. This cheese cooking bible has amazing recipes and some seriously sensual photography.
