Is there any better gift than cheese?
I mean come on, I have called cheese my favorite food.
Cheese makes pizza, pizza. It makes crackers more exciting. Pasta never tastes better than with cheese.
Even a small amount of Parmigiano Reggiano can turn a simple soup into an extraordinary experience.
Cheese is the best. So why not give it this holiday season?! Let me lead the "whey" to great cheeses that your friends and family will love that you gave them as gifts.
We will be listing the best cheeses you can buy across this great country, staring with....
Located in Millersburg, Ohio | Established in 1950 | Known for : The Original Baby Swiss
Ok I am going to come out and immediately admit it, I am not a fan of strong cheeses. I won't try Limburger, cheddar does not get better with age for me, blue cheese - no thank you, and Swiss you're just too much. This is why I love Guggisberg. They not only make the best mild cheeses, they have the best selection from Amish Butter to Farmer's to Colby.
Their ultimate star of mild, deliciousness is Baby Swiss. And it should be. They were the ones that invented it. While many people have tried to duplicate it, I can tell you I have never tasted any better than the original.
Guggisberg founder, Alfred Guggisberg came to the United States in 1947. In the 1960s, Alfred was looking to come up with a new style of Swiss cheese. You see, we Americans don't always have the most developed palate and I am guilty as charged when it comes to cheese. Alfred developed a Swiss that has smaller holes with a creamier, mild taste. His wife, Margaret named the cheese "Baby Swiss" after looking at wheel next to traditional Emmental Swiss.
I first found Guggisberg Baby Swiss at my local Meijer store. I wasn't a Swiss fan but was intrigued at the idea of a milder Swiss, so I bought a wedge. Guggisberg cheese won a place in my heart that day, so I am honored to kick off his holiday guide with them.
Tip - Sprinkle a little bit of Fleur de Sel sea salt on a slice of Guggisberg Baby Swiss. Your mind will be blown by how good it is.
