Things “Made By US!!!” means the item is completely homemade -- something we are really proud to say. Nothing out of a can or box! The item is completely made from scratch!
Home cooking takes time and skill but it gives us a sense of pride and we guarantee that you’ll LOVE it! You’ll taste the difference! And you won’t find our stuff anywhere else!
Here’s a sampling of some of the stuff Made By US !!!
Flourless Oatmeal An amazing cookie – more like a candy. Chewy, delicious, and made without flour from a very old recipe. Caramel? Molasses? What is the secret…?
Chocolate Chip Like Mom's old fashion chocolate chip cookie
We roast meats right here in the shop! Sometimes the aroma will drive you nuts, it’s so fantastic!
Roast Beef Angus top round trimmed, tied and cooked to medium rare.
Pork Loin Studded with garlic, stuffed with cilantro, covered with spices and then slow roasted.
Leg of Lamb is boneless, roasted rare and served thinly sliced with our very own Tarragon Dressing, cucumbers, tomato, red onions and Greek Mizithra – a dry-pressed Ricotta cheese that compliments the full flavor of the Lamb.
Freshly Squeezed Lemonade No powder, just juice!
Old-Fashioned Sun Tea No sugar! Exact opposite of instant tea…start with clear, cold water… this tea is never cloudy.
Orange Juice Freshly squeezed, right before your eyes!
Potato, Macaroni, Cole Slaw think: “Family Picnic” and you’ll know what we mean! We make these fresh every day – nothing out of a box! We use red-skinned potatoes and fresh dill; the macaroni salad has chunks of cheddar cheese; the coleslaw is sweet and tangy. Order lots -- you’ll need more than you think!
Chicken Salad is made with ONLY white breast meat, marinated in soy sauce and grilled to perfection before it’s finely chopped and mixed with a little mayo, Dijon mustard, and celery for the perfect Chicken Salad Sandwich. It’s best with a little red onion - but YOU decide!
Tuna Salad made from white meat - Tongol tuna - packed in water. It’s simple with just a little mayo and relish.
1,000 Island Dressing is most often found on hot sandwiches, like a Reuben, but it’s good on almost anything. Try a “cold” sandwich with 1,000 Island and cole slaw! (Maybe some red onions)…
Tarragon Dressing is used on the Lamb Sandwich, but it’s particularly good with Roast Beef. It’s basically a flavored mayonnaise but the tarragon herb and the red wine vinegar lend a dimension to this spread that is found nowhere else. There’s an art to making mayonnaise from scratch, but we do it everyday!
Oil and Vinegar dressing: Zesty Authenticity -- Hand-mixed from Penzey’s Italian Spices, fresh garlic, olive oil, and a mixture of red wine vinegar.
Okay, so there are some things at the Cheese Shop that are not Made By US !!! Sometimes it’s more feasible to have things brought in. We strive to concentrate on a few specialty items – but we do them well. Some items are imported -- maybe you’ve only come across them while traveling to exotic locales… And other stuff is a complete mystery to a lot of people - but their grandparents might recognize it…
“WHAT DO I DO WITH THIS???” “WHAT IS THIS STUFF???”
Don’t worry – we can always provide the answer, plus a few tips on how to prepare those peculiar items.
HP Sauce in London...Marmite in Australia...Chutnies in South Africa. You had them there...now you can get them here!
Hard to find products are often found at the Cheese Shop! They all look good on the shelf, but you'll be glad you can have them on your table! Try new things...Learn about different flavors... The World is a big place indeed, and the Cheese Shop can be your source for things without having to travel half-way across the globe!
At one time, the Cheese Shop carried hundreds of cheeses from all over the World. Times have indeed changed, but it’s still possible to find a few standards -- cheese curds from Wisconsin, extra sharp cheddar cheese and double cream Brie are some classics you’ll usually always find here.
“I haven’t seen THESE since I was little!” “I can’t believe they still make these!” This is the kind of thing we hear all the time. For a lot of people, browsing through our shelves is like a trip down Memory Lane. Maybe your Grandpa used to eat these, or maybe you were quite the hot-shot on the playground with your bag of bubble gum nuggets. Come in and get a blast from the past!
You'll see a lot of things you've seen before,
…but a lot of these things you haven't seen in YEARS!
