Nutritional Benefits of Cheese
Did you know that cheese is one of the best available sources of calcium and protein, as well as phosphorus? And that it is also full of vital nutrients and minerals? That and it tastes great too! Basically, cheese is a whole load of goodness packed into one scrumptious bite!
When preparing a cheese board, always start with a cheese friendly surface like wood, tile or marble. Don’t forget to buy enough cheese for the occasion, usually 1–1½ ounces per person per cheese. Cheeses are best served in odd numbers (arranged according to flavor) with a common theme, like country of origin or type. Always use separate knives for each cheese, and remember to serve them at room temperature for best flavor.
Gourmet to Go
From appetizers to entrées, breakfast to dessert, we offer all sorts of delicious chef–prepared foods made fresh in our kitchens with the highest quality ingredients.
Food waste directly affects all of us, but we often think of it in small doses, like the food left on our plates when we get full or the produce that got moldy in the back of the fridge. Unfortunately, the United States lets a staggering 40% of all food produced go to waste, and this number has risen dramatically due to the pandemic. The good news is there are many ways to combat food waste, energy loss and water loss all at once! Here are just a few ways to get started.
