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.

August Wine 2015_Web

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.

July Cheese and Wine of the Month

The summer weather is here and now it’s the perfect time to indulge in the bold and decadent flavors of the season. Enjoy great food with friends and family and make this summer one of your finest. We’ve chosen this month’s cheese and wine with the intent of spoiling you. So take a look and then stop in to get them and enjoy with loved ones.

Cheese of the Month:

Saint André Triple Creme Soft-Ripened Cheese

If summer is the perfect time to indulge in bold, rich flavors then Saint André Triple Creme does not disappoint. This French cheese, made from pasteurized cow’s milk, offers a deliciously buttery taste. If you’re looking to treat yourself this summer, this is one cheese you’ll want to have on your plate. Just listen to this dreamy description from Ile De France,

“As dense as pure butter and with the richest of flavors, the tongue-pleasing salty tang derives from the ocean air blowing through the pâturages of the Normandy coast. Produced in the shadow of the mystical island of Mont Saint-Michel, St. André cheese is just as breathtaking as the landscape of the surrounding Cotentin Peninsula” (Ile De France, St. André, www.iledefrancecheese.com).

In other words, yum. Be sure to pick up Saint André Triple Creme today.

Wine of the Month:

Château Grande Cassagne Rosé

This Rosé, originating from France, will make a great addition to your summer table. Rosé wines are ideal to have on hand in the summer as you enjoy a variety of foods, often all at once. Maybe you’re having steak, seafood and salad at your next house party, so grabbing a delicious Rosé to keep the palate nice and balanced is a no-brainer. Adding a fruit bowl to that dinner? Try also adding some fruit such as raspberries, strawberries or orange to your Rosé to give it just the right touch. Château Grande Cassagne Rosé boasts tangy cherry and blood orange flavors with hints of spice. Just the right flavors to match the feeling of summer.
