It all started when…
WHAT ARE CHEESE CARAMELS?
Cheese caramels are the bomb! They are an unctuous, deep, rich flavored caramel unlike anything else. Sweet, savory and umami all at once, they defy both categories of cheese and caramel. Cheese lovers love them. caramel lovers love them, and people who are normally averse to each love them.
HOW DO YOU MAKE CHEESE CARAMELS?
We make a cheese sauce by melting freshly grated cheese into heavy cream. When the sugar mix is caramelized in a large vat, we carefully pour in the cheese sauce. It is in this beautiful moment, that the cheese and sugars cook and melt together into one luscious caramel. We pour the caramel into large sheets, allow it to set over night, and then package it for your own enjoyment.
HOW SHOULD I EAT cheese CARAMELS?
We like them straight out of the box as candies, but cheese caramel is also great added to a cheese board or as a pairing for coffee, wine, whisky, or beer. If you're feeling culinary, it's also awesome melted with a little water or cream on the stove top, and then drizzled over popcorn. See some of our ideas for how to eat it here.
HOW DO YOU SELECT THE CHEESE YOU FEATURE IN YOUR CARAMEL?
We select only the best cheeses. They are high quality, specialty styles packed with a lot of flavor. The cheeses we use pair well with caramel on their own, and are characteristically savory and distinct. Learn more about each cheese featured here:
