On June 4, we honor one of the most delicious contributions to our food and hearts. If you’re a cheese lover, then you know this snack makes everything better. With thousands of varieties, you can get adventurous this National Cheese Day by checking out one of our favorite cheese shops in Jersey City.
Excellent as a snack on its own, cheese is also a perfect ingredient in pasta, soups, sandwiches and so much more. There’s nothing better than a crispy, flaky, grilled cheese sandwich (with tomato…in our opinion), nachos with cheese, French onion soup, wine and cheese pairings, cheesecake and of course, pizza! Jersey City has an abundance of places where you can indulge in these meals or you can make them at home in your Madox apartment. Van Hook Cheese and Grocery is the perfect spot to pick up an assortment of cheeses that are sure to impress you and your guests!
Van Hook is a family-owned cheese and specialty store that focuses on high quality and local products. They offer cheese platters (for pick-up only), local events, expert advice on cheeses and they recently added a grilled cheese menu to the store. These aren’t your typical grilled cheese sandwiches, they use only the finest cheddar cheese and you can add fig jam, bacon jam, ham or duck. Their local events are held at Jersey Wine & Spirits and the next event is on June 26th which is a rose and cheese pairing.
You can visit their event page for more upcoming wine tastings. Make sure to join their mailing list as well!
