I thought that the Meunster was a beautiful thing to behold! These cheeses shred and slice wonderfully.
And the Smoked Gouda made a delicious cheeseburger. That's a gluten-free Chez Gourmet Oregon Harvest Veggi Patti, (my new favorite go-to burgers), on a Dave's Killer Bread Blues Bun and yes, I do like ketchup!
Last Saturday I treated myself to a delightfully light, picnic-style lunch, which I actually did bring outdoors to enjoy, since the weather was exquisite! All of the Ste Martaen cheeses paired beautifully with Dr. Kracker Seeded Spelt Flatbread Crackers. A handful of farmer's market-fresh strawberries, a small bunch of green grapes, and a glass of vegan Radical Red Wine from The Organic Wine Works rounded out the meal.
I decided to surprise Mark last night and made a huge plate of nachos with Trader Joe's Veggie & Flaxseed Tortilla Chips and Ste Martaen Colby and Smoked Gouda cheeses. We both enjoyed the gooey goodness of the Nacho Cheese Sauce, and you can find the recipe here.
If you're lucky enough to live in Chicago, you'll find Ste Martaen Gourmet Cheeses at Whole Foods, Bonne Sante, and True Nature Foods. Otherwise, you can order them online direct from Ste Martaen.
Tasty Update: Mention this post with your first order, and Ste Martaen will send you one free cheese!
