EMP Winter House with our cheese

November 21, 2018

Eleven Madison Park (EMP), on of the top five restaurants in the world over the last few years, opens its Winter House pop-up in Aspen (CO) on Dec. 15, 2018. It’s no surprise that owner and Swiss celebrity chef Daniel Humm offers a fondue from his native country in the winter setting of the Rocky Mountains. The quality, as always, has to be absolute top. That’s why he uses Quality Cheese’s Rolf Beeler Gruyère and Steiners Hohberg Vacherin Fribourgeois AOP from our Adopt-an-Alp program.
The Winter House pop-up is also planned for New York City in January 2019.

It’s witch time, red and old

As always, Laurie Andrighetto from Bianchini’s Market in San Carlos and Portola Valley (CA), has her special ways to promote products. Just on time for Halloween she has beautifully displayed the Red Witch, the Old Witch (indeed the older sister) and the Jack-‘o’pumpkin, a cheese with roasted organic pumpkinseeds. Enjoy the pictures.

It’s to die for

We just got our first batch of Petit Vaccarinus, the Vacherin Mont d’Or specially made for Quality Cheese. Cut open it doesn’t just look great, paired with our homemade bread it is literally to die for.
