5 Best Cheeses For Thanksgiving

2 Nov

What better to do before eating Thanksgiving dinner than…eat. Cheesemonger John from the great Polk Street store Cheese Plus gives his quick picks for great hors d’oeuvres.

1. Hooligan Raw Cow: Dense and buttery with a washed rind. From Cato’s Corner, CT.

2. Parmigiano Reggiano: Everyone knows this classic, but it doesn’t mean it’s sweet, nutty, sharp and salty 2 year old won’t be a highlight at the adult’s table.

3. Twin Maple Farm Hudson Red: New York’s finest semi-soft.

4. Hirtenkase: A coop cheese from a small collective. Firm and nutty, it’s a cross between aged Gouda and Parm Regg.

5. Bellweather Farms Fromage Blanc: This creamy Petaluma gem will make you forget cream cheese ever existed.
