Some cheese lovers don't need any extra reasons to chow down on some cheddar. But, for anyone who is on the fence about feta, there are more and more reasons to pass the Provolone.
“Cheese is becoming more popular over time, partly because a lot more people are travelling and becoming exposed to different things in other countries,” says Fern Janzen, owner of Paddy's International Cheese Market. “Fall and winter brings people looking for the cheese they ate in Europe. People are also looking at the health benefits of cheese, if eaten in moderation. Studies have shown that, for women especially, if you change your diet to lose weight, you will lose more weight if some cheese is kept in the diet.”
Love cheese? Then, you’ll love Paddy’s, obviously. They have a mouth-watering selection of cheese from around the globe, plus gourmet crackers, spreads and meats to go with it on a nice cheese board. If you’re sick of regular cheddar, don’t take a break from cheese; instead, try out new varieties of everyone’s favourite snack. It’s amazing how different cheese from another region can taste compared to what we’re used to – and it’s fun to find new favourites!
Located in the High Street shopping complex (just a few steps away from Call the Kettle Black), this cozy cheese shop carries a generous supply of locally sourced and exotic cheeses from around the world. If you fancy a grey ash goat cheese or a porter cheddar, you’ll find it here. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and will make recommendations for you, in addition to handing out samples. In addition to cheese, you’ll find a small selection of crackers, balsamic vinegars and other items necessary for your next cheese board.
If a total foodie is having you over for dinner, you can’t go wrong with cheese. Paddy’s International Cheese Market has a lot of new cheeses to fall in love with — you’ve likely never tasted most of their selection. Ask the staff to recommend a few different cheeses that will complement each other for a cheese board, then grab some gourmet crackers from the shelf, and voila! You’re a perfect guest.
