St Patrick’s Day

How are you celebrating St. Patrick’s Day?

Here at the Pantry we served up samples of Kerrygold Irish Reserve Cheddar on Saturday to welcome in the good saint this week.  This 2 year old cheddar is made with milk from grass fed cows and you can taste the difference.  Is it a coincidence that this farmhouse cheddar pairs well with Guinness?   Besides our Kerrygold Reserve Cheddar we have over 15 cheddars you can choose from. If your cheese palate runs to something different than cheddar try pairing some of the following with your Guinness:

  • Jarlsberg
  • Smoked Gouda
  • Camembert
  • Sharp Provolone
  • St. Paulin…a Canadian version of Port Salut.
  • Goat Cheese like Cablanca Gouda or Woolrich Goat Mottzarella
  • Blue Cheese…we carry a variety including Cambozola, St. Agur, Danish Extra Creamy Blue. Or  try Blue Shropshire an amazing blue cheddar!

St. Patrick’s Day always seems to herald spring here in Welland, Ontario. So even if you aren’t Irish it’s worth celebrating.  So plan something special this week…and if you are foregoing Guinness for lent or expect guests who pass on alcohol, we have an awesome alternative made by Carlsberg in Europe: Karmi Zurawina is a .5% alcohol dark ale beverage that offers a combination of deep, caramel flavor with the cranberry, dark cherry and chocolate aroma.
