Did you know today is National Cheese Lover’s Day? In honor of this special day, we are going to celebrate with two recipes using the delicious cheese made by Cabot. The more you learn about this brand, the more you understand the commitment to high quality products that the 1200 Dairy Farm Families in NY and New England who own Cabot, promise their customers.

They are a cooperative owned and operated by their members, dairy farmers and families throughout New England and Upstate New York. Their offerings include yogurts, butter, dips, cream cheese, cottage cheese, sour cream and whipped cream. Their commitment to their products starts on the farm with how they care for their cows. In fact, it is so important to them that we understand the process that they have created an infographic to help us with the details. In addition, making “farm-to-fork” efforts supports their sustainability initiatives showcasing the impact from cow-to-creamery-to-customer.

Everyone has their favorite recipes when it comes to incorporating cheese into their dishes. What I love about Cabot cheeses is how good these are fresh out of the package. Each has such a distinct flavor and creaminess pairing well with wines, fruits, crackers and meats. I chose two of their Farmers’ Legacy Collection cheeses to try first along with their Extra Sharp Cheddar. The Farmer’s Legacy Collection are European inspired cheddars each with their own distinctive flavor.

Cabot White Oak Cheddar – has an oaky and buttery flavor

Cabot Alpine Cheddar – has a nutty taste like Parmesan and creamy texture like Swiss

Everyone makes grilled cheese sandwiches, right? Because I wanted to bring out the flavors that Cabot imparts in their cheeses, I am sharing two different recipes that I hope you find as delicious as I do.

4-5 cherries – sliced in 3 pieces





In grill pan (or frying pan), melt butter and add both slices of bread. Grill till golden.

Add slices of cheese to one slice. Remove second slice of toasted bread.

Both recipes would make good appetizers if sliced in squares or triangles.


Next time you are in your local grocery, look for Cabot products. I know you will enjoy them as much as I did not only for their wonderful flavor and quality but also for the support of the whole farming cooperative.
