Waterloo, WI — Celebrate this holiday season by providing a taste of Crave Brothers Farmstead Classics Cheese to those on your gift list. All you do is order the gift baskets online at  Crave Brothers Cheese. Order one for yourself and one for gift-giving.

And what could be more welcome to cheese lovers than receiving an assortment of award-winning Wisconsin artisan cheeses? Crave Brothers Farmstead Classic Cheeses are made with milk from the Crave family’s own dairy herd. Their farmstead cheese-making facility uses 100 percent green power, and practices water conservation and recycling. Both gift box choices this year feature a taste of what sets Crave Brothers Cheese apart.

            •  The Crave Sampler ($22.99 plus shipping) is a party waiting to happen, but it’s also just right for sampling and savoring over time. This gift box features four outstanding Crave Brothers Cheeses: two Farmer’s Rope String Cheese (1.5 pounds), 2 containers of Mascarpone (1 pound), Marinated Fresh Mozzarella (.5 pound) and Cheddar Cheese Curds (.75 pound).

            Farmer’s Rope String Cheese is great for snacking, shredding or melting. Try it melted on pizzas or in quesadillas. Crave Brothers Farmer’s Rope String Cheese has won more than 28 awards in prestigious cheese competitions, including Second Place in the 2017 World Dairy Expo Championship Dairy Product Contest.

            Sweet cream Mascarpone lends its luxurious flavor and smooth texture to desserts such as tiramisu, serves as a garnish for fresh berries, and is versatile enough for savory applications including soups and pastas.  In all, Crave Brothers Mascarpone has won more than 27 awards since its introduction, most recently earning a First-Place Award in the 2017 Wisconsin State Fair Cheese and Butter Contestin the Soft Spreadable Cheese Category

            Marinated Fresh Mozzarella ciliegine (cherry size balls) are marinated in an olive oil/canola oil blend with Crave Brothers’ custom mix of Italian seasonings, garlic, crushed red pepper and black pepper. Serve Marinated Fresh Mozzarella as an appetizer with fresh tomatoes and olives, or in pasta salads. Crave Brothers Marinated Fresh Mozzarella earned Second Place honors in the 2017 World Dairy Expo Championship Dairy Product Contest.

            Crave Brothers Cheddar Cheese Curds have a squeaky texture and a mild, salty flavor, offering the ultimate fresh cheese experience. They’re available in white cheddar, yellow cheddar and jalapeño varieties. Serve Cheddar Cheese Curds as appetizers or snacks.  Crave Brothers Jalapeño Cheddar Cheese Curds won First Place in the 2017 U.S. Cheese Championships, Natural Snack Cheese category. In 2016, Crave Brothers won First Place in the American Cheese Society awards competition for both Jalapeño Cheddar and Yellow Cheddar Cheese Curds, and Third Place for the White Cheddar Cheese Curds.

            • Crave Brothers Mascarpone Pie Kit ($16 plus shipping) is a natural choice for chocolate lovers, dessert lovers and cheese lovers alike. The kit includes one Oreo Pie Crust, one bag of Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate (12 ounces), and 2 containers of Mascarpone Cheese (1 pound), plus a recipe card. Simply put, this pie is a winner. In fact, Crave Brothers Chocolate Mascarpone Pie Filling won Second Place honors in the Creative and Innovative Products at this year’s World Dairy Expo Championship Dairy Product Contest.

            The filling recipe is easy as pie, too.  Just stir melted chocolate into the mascarpone until it’s well incorporated. If desired, you can add a tablespoon or two of your own favorite liqueur or spirit (not included in the gift box)—Irish cream, bourbon, amaretto or, for more regional artisanal taste, J. Henry & Sons Wisconsin Bourbon. Transfer the filling to the pie crust and chill overnight before serving.

From the manure digester to water recovery, sustainability is top-of-mind on the farm. Every pound of cheese made by George Crave, a licensed cheese maker, is made with milk from the family’s herd. Crave Brothers produces Fresh Mozzarella, Mascarpone, Part-skim Mozzarella, Oaxaca, Farmer’s Rope String Cheese, and Fresh Cheddar Cheese Curds in white, yellow and jalapeño varieties.
