Who doesn’t love cheese? Well, for all of you cheese connoisseurs out there, October is American Cheese Month, a month described by the American Cheese Society as being a “grassroots celebration of North America’s delicious and diverse cheeses,” not to mention everyone who plays a role in creating the cheese and bringing it to you the consumer. The purpose of American Cheese Month is threefold:
- To raise awareness of and give special recognition to the diversity and quality of cheeses in the United States
- To promote and support local family farms, cheese makers and local foods in general, particularly those that use traditional and sustainable production methods
- To raise awareness and financial support for the American Cheese Education Foundation
There are American Cheese Month events all over the United States, led by anyone who has a love for great cheese (and again we ask, who doesn’t?). You can find events listed on the American Cheese Society’s website, www.cheesesociety.org.
However, you don’t have to be an official supporter of the American Cheese Society to celebrate American Cheese Month. If you’re eating and enjoying cheese during the month of October, consider yourself a supporter of dairy farmers and cheese producers.
At Tony’s Delicatessen & Fresh Meats, we import gourmet cheeses from all over the world to give you a massive selection that spans classic favorites to lesser-known delicacies. Cheddar, gouda, brie, mozzarella, you name it—even the most discriminating cheese connoisseur in Williamsport, PA will find what they’re looking for when they come by to take a look at our tantalizing selection of cheeses.
While you’re at it, pick up some meats as well! What could be better than celebrating American Cheese Month with a whole ton of delicious cheese? How about celebrating American Cheese Month with a whole ton of delicious cheese AND meat, and maybe some crackers as well? At Tony’s, our cheese selection is rivaled only by our tremendous selection of delicious meat cuts. We’ve got everything from steaks to filets to roasts and rounds, as well as pork, chicken and more. Pick up some sausage to serve as a snack with your favorite cheese. Now that football season is here, you’re going to want to keep plenty of cheese and sausage on hand to make a great game day snack!
And of course, there are plenty of other delicious ways to make use of our tasty cheeses this fall. A cheesy baked French onion soup is the perfect way to warm up on a brisk fall day. You might consider stuffing chicken breasts with gouda and pear or apple with a little bit of seasoning. If you’re serving spaghetti or another pasta dish, fresh parmesan cheese on your pasta rather than the stuff you’d find in a canister at a grocery store is always going to give you a better Italian dish experience.
For more information about the various types of cheeses we currently have in our selection and how you might use gourmet cheese in Williamsport, PA this fall to celebrate American Cheese Month, contact Tony’s Delicatessen & Fresh Meats today!
