The House Mouse Whole Foods Gift Card Giveaway

Hanging out at Whole Foods is always fun, but this past Tuesday night at the Ann Arbor-Cranbrook location was extra fun thanks to cheesemonger Carrie and her mad grilled cheese skills.

On the grilled cheese menu were three tasty options:

Le Gruyère Reserve from Emmi Roth – a nutty, spicy cheese which melts great and is commonly used in fondue. This was grilled in a mini raclette and paired with sweet, tart Bartlett pears.

Halloumi from Cyprus from G. & I. Keses – a combination of goat and sheep’s milk that takes the shape of the baskets in which it is made, this intense cheese actually does not melt at all! The salty cheese retains it’s shape and has a squeaky texture, but served with a drizzle of honey and it really pleased even the most discerning palate.

Berliner Der Käse from Emmi Roth – a Whole Foods exclusive with a creamy texture and nutty taste grilled up nicely onto some baguettes.

Carrie and happy customers

Carrie and the cheese were both big crowd-pleasers. So do you have a favorite fall cheese for grilling? We wanna know about it and it could get you a $50 Whole Foods Gift Card!

  3. I like any style of goat cheese, the firmer the better; it is a great cheese, for any time of the year.

  5. Favorite Fall Cheese…I will go with a new one I’ve just discovered, Roth Cheese’s Moody Blue. There’s a hint of “burning leaf pile” in the flavor profile!

    I love grilled halloumi, especially in a portobello burger with arugula. Throw in a side of soup and it’s the perfect hearty & cozy fall meal in my book! I also love that Whole Foods will cut any cheese by request, so you don’t need to purchase a huge brick, just whatever you might need at the time. 🙂
