Cheese & Charcuterie

A wedge of good cheese and a few slices of some delectable cured meats can be the simple foundation for a memorable meal. Add some bread, a little fruit, and a glass of wine and you’ve created a meditation on rustic simplicity. Cut the portion down and you’ve got an appetizer that serves as a decadent prelude to any feast.

Our cheese and cured meat selections include some of the finest offerings from points near and far. If you need some advice, we’d love to help you find the perfect cheese for any occasion. We sell fresh, semi-soft, soft-ripened, surface-ripened, semi-hard, hard, blue, and and washed-rind cheeses from cow, goat and ewe's milk cheeses from a select few of the very best cheesemakers in the world.

Our experienced cheesemongers taste everything we sell and love to share their knowledge of the different flavors and histories of our dairy treasures. Plus, we go one extra step that is unique in Salt Lake: all of our cheeses are wrapped with care using a specially designed microscopically permeable wrap that allows the cheese to "breathe" while maintaining its superb flavor and sublime texture.

Of course, you don’t have to take our word for it. Ask us for a sample to make sure you’re getting just the flavor you’re looking for. We love to share!

A Sampling of Our Cheeses & Purveyors

Cravero Parmigiano-Reggiano

Our friend Giorgio Cravero carefully selects wheels of Parmigiano-Reggiano just for us, and then carefully ages them to perfection in his cave in Bra, Italy before sending them to us at their peak of flavor and texture so that taste and texture are always extraordinary. For a few dollars more the experience of carefully aged and authentic food is well worth the added investment. Experience the difference!

Rockhill Creamery

Before Jenifer Hines and Pete Schrop began making amazing raw cow's milk cheeses in Richmond, Utah in 2005 we shared what we know in hopes of assisting them toward success. Their six Brown Swiss cows now produce fine raw milk that becomes fantastic cheese with the wisdom and experience of Jennifer's years of daily cheesemaking.

River's Edge Chevre

Pat Morford's farm is located near the saddle of the mountains between Corvalis and the Oregon coast. Her happy goats produce excellent quality that Pat then shapes into some of the most fascinating and full flavored chevres in the USA.

Neal's Yard Dairy, London, UK

We've been working with Randolph Hodgeson and team at Neal's Yard Dairy since 1998 as our source for all of our cheeses made in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The great care taken by our friends in Covent Garden allow us to bring some of their very finest farmstead cheeses to you.
