California Dreaming: August Cheese and Wine of the Month

With all the sunny weather we’ve had lately, it makes all of us Wisconsinites feel like we’re in California. We’ve been enjoying lovely warm and sunny weather, delicious summertime foods and fresh produce, palm trees…ok, maybe not palm trees. But still, it’s been an uplifting week of weather. So, it’s only natural that we picked our cheese and wine of the month to fit the Californian mood.

(And don’t worry. While this cheese is pretty great, we all know that Wisconsin cheese is still king.)

Cheese of the Month:

Vella Cheese Co. Dry Monterey Jack Cheese

Vella’s award-winning Dry Monterey Jack Cheese is made like a fresh Monterey Jack and aged another 7-10 months. This balanced and mild cheese is suitable for a variety of uses and pairs well with both red and white wines (however, we’d like to recommend a delicious Pinot Noir). With a firm texture, pale yellow coloring and a sweet nutty flavor, it’s perfect for shredding over pasta or tacos or slicing up for a fantastic grilled cheese sandwich. Of course, it also makes for a great eating cheese with a glass of wine.

Wine of the Month:

Pennywise, Pinot Noir, 2012

This deep ruby-hued wine offers rich aromas of rose petal, fresh-baked blueberry pie, wild cherry and toasted cedar. At first taste, a bit of tartness, which then mellows out to the taste of vanilla, French oak, wild huckleberry and toasted marshmallow. Ultimately, this wine wraps up with a playful balance of the flavors. Pennywise Pinot Noir’s rich flavor is perfect for winding down on a summer evening. Our recommendation: Pair with a Dry Monterey Jack grilled cheese sandwich topped with fruit preserves.

Pick up our cheese and wine of the month and enjoy them for yourself! After all, now is the time to relax in the sun on your patio and chill out, man.

*Please drink Wine of the Month responsibly.

Be Sure To Enjoy: Picnic Season!

The summer weather is in full swing and many of us know that here in Wisconsin, summer sadly won’t last long. Winter will be here before you know it, [cue Alfred Hitchcock’s, “Psycho”, shower scene music].What does that mean for us? It means to not miss a minute of the summer weather. This is an important time of year to get out and spend time reconnecting with friends and family.

One way to do that involves our specialty, great food! In particular, having a picnic. Sharing a meal has traditionally been a way to show trust, friendship and love to those you care for and a picnic combines a delightful meal with the great outdoors. You can’t really go wrong there.

As we wrap up July and head into August, remember to enjoy this last stretch of the picnic season. Here are some of HCM’s favorite basket picks to help get those wheels turning.

We hope you utilize the rest of the summer and slow down, enjoy great company and of course, some great food never hurts.

Looking for more food ideas for planning a great outing? Stop by HCM and talk with our friendly staff. They’ll help you find just what you need.

P.S. For a super recipe for fun, add some lawn games to the picnic.
