What is a Cheesemonger?
cheese·mon·ger ˈCHēzˌmäNGɡər,-ˌməNGɡər/ (noun, BRITISH)
1. a person who sells cheese, butter, and other dairy products.
The word "cheesemonger" is someone who sells cheese. That, of course, is the simple definition of what we do. We sell cheese, but our job is more complex than that. We act as the liaison between the producer and you, the consumer, we tend to the cheese until it's sold, and we advise and educate you to make the best choice possible. A true cheesemonger is passionate about cheese and should recommend which cheeses pair well with which foods and wines. We always know which cheese is at its peak and in season. We know the story behind the cheese. A good cheesemonger is knowledgeable and approachable. In other words, a good cheesemonger will forge a relationship with you, will learn your preferences, and will happily share their passion. It is essentially an old-fashioned way of shopping for food, but it can be refreshing in a world of super-sized box stores and impersonal grocery chains. Here at Cheesemonger Box, we have several American Cheese Society Certified Cheese Professionals on staff(ACS CCP). Our commitment to our producers and customers runs deep. Our attention to authentic artisan producers, our attention to freshness, and our ability to share them with you separate us from the cheese department of your grocery store or online supermarket. We ensure a delicious cheese and an informative shopping experience every time. Like a good hairdresser or a trustworthy mechanic, a great cheesemonger will always care for the cheese and you and never let you down.
