It comes as no surprise that July is National Grilling Month, but the grill shouldn't be dedicated to only meats and veggies. Our Specialty Cheese Director, Joe Moore, has selected our favorite cheeses to pair with grilled delicacies, and even a cheese that can go directly on the grill!

St. Pete's Select Blue Cheese

St. Pete's Select Blue Cheese

Named after the type of sandstone that forms the caves, St. Pete’s Select is a premium American blue cheese produced in Faribault, Minnesota. Wheels of St. Pete’s are hand selected and cave aged for over 100 days. The flavor profile of St. Pete’s has been described as “complex, complicated yet delightfully intimate." A deliciously creamy mouthfeel and pronounced piquant sharpness are the hallmark characteristics of this classic American-made blue. We love to crumble this cheese on grilled burgers!

Juusto with Bacon

Juusto with Bacon Crumbles
