Journey back in time to discover the origins of your favorite cheeses!

To all our cheese lovers!

Today is National Cheese Day🧀, a day dedicated to celebrating the ultimate delicacy on our tables...

But did you know that behind every piece of cheese lies a fascinating story of ancient traditions and craftsmanship?

So fasten your seatbelts, as we take you on a journey through time to discover the origins of our favorite cheeses.

Let's start with France's most emblematic cheese: Camembert. Originating in Normandy, this creamy cheese has a history that goes back to the 18th century. Created by local farmer Marie Harel, Camembert quickly became a symbol of French cuisine. Today, it is appreciated all over the world for its rich taste and melt-in-the-mouth texture.

Next, let's take a look at Parmigiano Reggiano, or more commonly known as Parmesan. This Italian cheese, produced exclusively in the regions of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Bologna and Mantua, has a history that goes back over 900 years! Made using traditional methods handed down from generation to generation, Parmesan is famous for its intense flavor and grainy texture.

And what about Cheddar, that strong-tasting English cheese? Originating from the village of the same name in Somerset, Cheddar has been made for over 800 years. Today, it's one of the world's most popular cheeses, appreciated for its versatility and ability to adapt to a multitude of recipes.

Now let's talk about our faithful allies to present all those delicious cheeses: Björn's acacia wood cutting boards!

Tough, durable and naturally beautiful, these boards are the perfect complement to showcase your favorite cheeses during tastings. Thanks to their exceptional quality, they stand the test of time and add a rustic, elegant touch to your table.

So, whether you're a confirmed cheese lover or just discovering the wonders of the cheese world, take the time today to celebrate these delights that have spanned the centuries.

Happy National Cheese Day to everyone!
