When deciding on a gift for mom this Mother’s Day, don’t overlook the obvious: delicious cheese! It’s the perfect last-minute gift, and it even comes pre-wrapped. Add a bottle of wine or beer with an accompaniment (salumi! chocolate! spiced nuts!), and you’ve got a gift moms everywhere will adore (and devour). Now get yourself to the cheese counter! If you need inspiration, these mom-approved favorites from Formaggio Kitchen are always good bets.
Tim tells us, “I think [my mother] likes Ascutney because it has a nice balance of nutty flavors and salty-sharp flavors. Having mostly enjoyed European cheeses, I think she was also impressed that a domestic cheese could be so tasty. Comté is a favorite also because that’s what I always bring home and rave about how excellent our Comté is.”
