Cheese lovers! We have a problem on our hands…
Indulging in our love for these savory little morsels can be costly and nobody wants to spend $20+ at a restaurant for a few small chunks that were laid out nicely. We demand more! Fortunately, not everything that tastes delectable and elegant has to be in a luxurious setting. How, you say? Great question.
Whole Foods’s section of packaged sampling cheeses
With a lonely chunk of Pecorino sitting in the darkness of my fridge’s drawer, it needed some friends I could devour with: Cave aged Gruyere $1.44, Bucheron (Goat’s milk) $2.38 and Gouda 3 years $0.90. If you found wafers like I did or have bread sitting around, now’s the time to use it. To bring it to the next level, add a side of jam, chutney, honey or fruit- like Brie with fig jam. Salty and sweet flavors compliment each other so well.
For $5, bread and some wine from your cabinet, this is the ultimate way to relax on any night.
I had no idea there was such a thing as sampling cheese except pre-made on a cheese plate! Love the tip!
Glad you found it helpful! A lot of specialty cheese shops will not mind cutting you smaller pieces, so don’t be afraid to ask. It’ll save you so much money.
