The Cutting of the Crucolo

We’ve scheduled our annual Cutting of the Crucolo for November 17th, 2018. Join us for this celebration of cheese that marks the beginning of the Holiday Season! There will be crucolo, product samples, raffles and more!

Crucolo is an artisanal cow’s milk cheese imported from Italy. It’s available in our Deli year-round, but only during the holidays do we bring in the 300+ LB wheels. The cheese is fairly soft, full of characteristic holes and is buttery in taste.
