Win This Sartori Cheese Gift Pack!

Monday, September 23, 2013

When I was a little girl, my family owned a cheese store in New York City. Since then I love tasting all kinds of cheeses. When I tasted Sartori’s delicious cheeses, I had to share the love!

About Sartori Cheese
Sartori’s line of BellaVitano cheeses are one of a kind created by their Master Cheesemakers. Starting out like a Parmesan, BellaVitano has a light fruity note but with a surprisingly creamy rich texture.  Each unique treatment is applied to the outside of the wheel, whether it’s hand rubbed with fresh ground Italian roast espresso beans or soaked in a Raspberry Tart Ale, the flavors enhance, but do not overwhelm the cheese; the cheese is the main focus.  It’s important to note that the rind is meant to be eaten!  Each cheese is aged around 1 year, but ultimately the cheese is ready when the Master Cheesemaker says so.


Say Cheese!
Cheese can absolutely be part of a healthy eating plan (even the full fat kind). The trick is to use a small amount of a flavorful cheese—a little goes a long way.

Here are 5 healthy ways to incorporate cheese into your healthy dishes:

  • Mix 1 to 2 tablespoons of shredded cheese into a bowl of chili
  • Sprinkle a few tablespoons onto homemade croutons
  • Top a spinach dip with a few tablespoons, then bake
  • Add 2 tablespoons into an omelet or scrambled egg wrap
  • Sprinkle a small handful of shredded cheese onto risotto

Barbara Calder Says:

I enjoy cheese just as it is with great crusty rolls.

Phil Says:

Favorite way to enjoy cheese? I love cheese anytime paired with just about anything! Cheese is awesome on its own but also compliments foods so well. From scrambled eggs to steak to apple pie. Bring me some cheese! Bring it now!

Geoff Says:

My favorite way to eat cheese is to cut it up into cubes and enjoy it along side fresh ciabatta bread and Frantoia garlic olive oil. I love using my cheese grinder to sprinkle Sartori on top of white cheddar mac n’ cheese. My favorite Sartori flavor is the Balsamic. I think Sartori could craft a type of beer cheese too similar but better than Ilchester’s Beer Cheese.

Sarah Says:

I like it best on water crackers with a glass of white wine.

Deanna Swenson Says:

My favorite way to eat Sartori cheese is on the balcony, watching the sunset with a glass of wine and my best friend; my hubby! 🙂

Michael Osofsky Says:

On wood fired pizza from my backyard

vicky marx Says:

My favorite way to enjoy Sartori Chesse is with friends. I never go on a trip without a collection of Sartori world award winning cheeses. I’m so proud of my hometown that I want everyone to know about the great cheeses they produce.

Tami Gasch Says:

I love cheese! I’m so glad my taste buds have grown up as I got older to appreciate all the delicious flavors! A favorite way to eat it is with crackers. 🙂

Sara Says:

Sartori Cheese is actually my favorite brand! I love to eat it with Italian dry salame (Boar’s Head Brand) and wheat crackers! I’m usually reading a book while enjoying this combination. I’d have to say Chai is my new favorite, it used to be expresso.. It’s very hard to just choose one favorite. I’ve liked Sartori Cheese on Facebook for some time.. Iwish there was actuallt a “Love” or “Favorite” Button.

Sara Says:

I have liked Sartori Cheese for a while now..

Sara Says:

Christe McKittrick Says:

Andy Says:

Sartori is my favorite!

Nate Johnson Says:

In cheese grits, please.

John Rozum Says:

I’m kind of a purist and usually enjoy my Sartori varieties all by themselves. Although, practicing pairing them with wine and whiskey while sitting on the back porch can be fun, too!

I love to eat Bella Ventano Merlot infused cheese with buttery crackers for lunch. Not too original but oh so good!

Felisa Russell Says:

I live in a sub of 200 homes. On weekends, after neighbors have cut the grass and kids are outside playing (including my own), I love to enjoy Satori cheese (montamore is my favorite) with my husband, a glass of Chateau Aeronautique Reisling with my doors and windows open, a soft breeze blowing my sheers, and my favorites playing on Pandora radio. I feel like I’m on a hundred acres all alone:)

Felisa Russell Says:

I tweeted too @FATRussell

Sampling cheese at whole foods is the best.

Best war to enjoy my Sartori cheese is with a fresh crisp juicy apple. Preferably a Granny Smith.

My favorite way to enjoy cheese is the simplest way, a cheese plate with a few different kinds of cheese, some fruit, maybe some high quality crackers. I serve this about once a week for family TV night, and I always serve Sartori cheese, which I buy at Tenuta’s in Kenosha.

I like my Montamore naked…the cheese that is. I like to wear clothing. 🙂 Sometimes there’s a little crunch from the salt but the creaminess always melts in your mouth. Where’s my cheese?

Lindsey Says:

My favorite way to eat cheese is to let the cheese stand alone. Pairing it with some choice crackers, breads and fruits is also great.

Lindsey Says:

Uhhhh… all the ways? Simple is best–melty on toast, maybe. But anytime there’s cheese, I’m happy!
