Schuman Cheese to Present Award-Winning Selection at Winter Fancy Food Show

Reinforcing its position as the nation’s leading Italian cheese company, Schuman Cheese will feature an impressive lineup of internationally acclaimed cheeses at this year’s Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco. Each of these showcase products has earned recognition at esteemed competitions during the past year, underscoring the Schuman Cheese promise: to enhance everyday eating experiences with the highest quality cheese.

“At Schuman Cheese, we believe the only thing better than making exceptional cheese is sharing it with others,” said Ilana Fischer, Vice President of Innovation and Strategy. “At this year’s Winter Fancy Food Show, we’re shining a light on some of our proudest accomplishments. This sampling showcases the very best of what gold prize award-winning cheeses should be.”

Cello Copper Kettle Parmesan: The engine driving Schuman’s flagship Cello brand, this is the only U.S.-made Parmesan crafted in authentic copper kettle. Aged for 16 months to achieve superior texture and flavor, the result is a distinctive nutty, fruity and caramel taste that lends a perfectly bold, authentic Italian touch to appetizers, entrees and more.

Cello Whisps: A testament to Schuman Cheese’s success in delivering smart and tasty Innovation products, Whisps have earned numerous awards since their launch a year ago. San Francisco will mark the debut of the latest extension of the line, as Asiago & Pepper Jack Whisps join the original Parmesan and Cheddar flavors for yet another take on these flavorful, airy, crispy bites that are ideal for a guilt-free snack.

Yellow Door Creamery Hand Rubbed Fontina: Smooth and creamy Fontina wheels are hand-rubbed with vibrant spice blends from around the globe and naturally aged for over 60 days. A crowd favorite, the Harissa variety brings a smoky blend of chili, cumin and caraway seed that creates an exotic combo with the Fontina’s rich and nutty flavor.

Montforte Bleu: Crafted in the old-world tradition of artisan cheesemakers, this selection’s savory tangy flavor is enhanced by its characteristic blue marble veining, which gives it smooth and creamy undertones that lend a decadent bite to a host of recipes.

Montforte Gorgonzola: Made with sea salt and fresh cows’ milk, this cheese is aged for 90 days to produce greenish marble veins and a soft, crumbly texture. The robust, piquant flavor is ideal for topping salads and burgers and as a base for rich cream sauces.

El Pastor: Hijos de Salvador Rodriguez, a third-generation family-owned business in Santa Cristina, Spain, is a natural partner for Schuman’s ever-expanding import business. El Pastor, its highly acclaimed flagship brand and the most popular cheese in Spain, is now available through Schuman Cheese.

Other featured award-winning products include Cello Artisan Parmesan, Cello Asiago and Cello Cheddar.
