Happy 1st birthday Prince George!
Did you know that as the world celebrated the birth of Prince George on July 22, 2013 (one year ago today), a cheese was made that day to commemorate the occasion?
This summer, you can enjoy the one-year-old cheese honoring the young British royal third in line for the throne with the Westminster Royal Addition One-Year-Old Cheddar, available exclusively at Whole Foods Market.
Personally, I would rather have a slice of cheese over a slice of cake any day. So, what better way to celebrate a birthday?
I stopped by Whole Foods yesterday to pick up some of this very special variety. Of course, a few other items were needed to round out my cheese plate.
I paired it with salami, marcona almonds, fancy crackers and some tiny champagne grapes. And with cheese, one always needs a nice glass of wine.
I asked the Whole Foods sommelier for some help in pairing a wine to my luscious cheese, and he recommended this lovely Chenin Blanc.
What a wonderful little summer evening feast, fit for royalty. Simple and delicious! A great way to celebrate any day of the year.
This cheddar has a creamy yet savory flavor. It is made on a farm in Somerset, England by the Barber family – one of the oldest cheddar makers in the world — and is aged for 12 months.
The cheese is available through July at $9.99 per pound in all Whole Foods Market locations, but it will only be around for a limited time – so hurry to your closest Whole Foods and stock up!
