Jenny Rosenstrach, blogger and author of Dinner: A Love Story, has a single-minded pursuit to put healthy dinners on the table for her family, while getting the most out of every dollar in her household budget. In this short video she points out two ways to save: endcaps and cheese samples.
Savings at the Endcaps
Jenny highlights the value of shopping from endcaps — you know, the tall displays at the ends of every aisle. Great sales, promotions and in-season items are featured on endcaps. Check out the offerings and find the best deals.
Free Cheese Samples!
We sell hundreds of the worlds’ finest cheeses, so how do you choose among them? You should only buy cheese that thrills your taste buds. And that takes testing them.
Don’t worry about seeming greedy — ask for a taste of any cheese you are interested in.
Our cheesemongers love to give away free samples, and you’re likely to leave with something you really enjoy, rather than a cheese that may languish in the fridge. Plus, you’ll get a snack while you shop — which will help you stick to your list. We cut to order too, so you can buy only what you need.
Once you bring home cheesy goodness, the recipe possibilities are endless. Here’s a selection of family-friendly cheese-happy dishes that you can make without breaking the bank.
A Goat Cheese and Leek Quiche is fast and easy to prepare and perfect for breakfast or lunch. You can make it ahead of time for guests or busy mornings.
Our Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sandwich relies on sharp cheddar cheese and a thinly-sliced McIntosh apple to surprise and delight the palate.
For a cheese you may not have tasted before, try Halloumi. It’s a sheep and goat milk cheese that doesn’t melt, so you can toss it straight onto the grill and make this incredible Grilled Halloumi Salad.
