Celebrate National Cheese Lovers Day with ’Shrooms

January 12, 2018

Ahh cheese. One of the greatest foods known to man (along with mushrooms, of course). Do you know anyone who doesn’t like cheese? Probably not. In fact, people love cheese so much, it has its own holiday. (Though if you’re like us, you try to celebrate cheese on a daily basis.) Even our vegan and lactose-intolerant friends have found a way to enjoy dairy-free cheese – because everyone.loves.cheese.

January 20th is National Cheese Lovers Day, which means it’s time to celebrate our love for cheese in every form: cubed, sliced, melted and more. Make the most of this foodie holiday and throw in some mushrooms. The combination of ooey gooey gouda-ness and savory umami flavor will delight your taste buds.
