Wegmans, Hy-Vee promote cheese plates

To assist customers entertaining over the holidays, retailers are advertising cheeses, cheese kits and cheese boards.

The latest issue of Wegmans Menu Magazine, also available online, gives suggestions for building a cheese tray using one soft ripened cheese, one hard cheese, one washed cheese and one blue cheese, along with pairings like almonds, sausage bites and wine.

Time-crunched customers can also order cheese trays from the retailer. The Holiday Cheese Quartet includes two new French cheeses — the Bourbon-washed Pie d’Angloys and the Cremeux de Bourgogne — from Wegmans’ cheese caves and an Organic Fourme d’Ambert and Organic Gouda.

Hy-Vee is promoting topped Brie kits in its weekly ad.

Haggen Northwest Fresh has packaged cheese boards that also include extras like nuts, spreads and fruit. The boards come in three themes: Brie Lover’s Dream, Cheddar Flavor Flight and Savory & Sweet.
