Whole Foods celebrates Prince George's first birthday with cheese created in his honor

Hello Foodie Friends,

I had the pleasure of doing a private cheese tasting today at my local Whole Foods, so I invited my friend and fellow food blogger, Shaina Wizov of Take a Bite Out of Boca with me.

This time last year, the world anxiously awaited the birth of a royal baby who would become third in line for the throne – Prince George. At the same time, Whole Foods Market was preparing a new line of cheese in his honor: the Westminster Royal Addition One-Year-Old Cheddar, created on July 22, the day of the prince’s birth.
Available exclusively at Whole Foods Market, the cheddar is made on a farm in Somerset, England by the Barber family – one of the oldest cheddar makers in the world. It is aged for 12 months and has a creamy yet savory flavor and pairs well with a lager or Chenin Blanc. The cheese is available for $10.99 per pound and will be around for a limited time in all Whole Foods Market locations. It is a follow up to last year’s Westminster William and Kate Royal Addition Cheddar cheese.

This cheddar was smooth, creamy and not overwhelmingly sharp. We both gave it a thumbs up. Shaina said she intends to use it in a recipe, which I hope to be invited over to taste (hint hint). I'm thinking it would go well mixed with a few other cheeses and a nice (craft?) beer to make a tasty fondue. Yumm!

We were told that there were on 7 lbs left at the Whole Foods store in Boca Raton, so you may want to head over there right away and pick up some for yourself before they run out.

While we were there, Andy, the Marketing Team Leader shared with us that they will be beginning Pop Up Dinners there shortly, run by the chefs who cook there as well as their on site Sommelier. We saw a sample menu which looked very tantalizing. I can't wait to get notified when these begin. We may even book a few of these for Denise's Foodie Events.

Until we eat again...
  I send you delicious wishes, xo

  1. The cheese was yummy! It'd be perfect with our favorite Kim Crawford Savignon Blanc, don't you think :) Wine and cheese night needs to happen soon!
