Shut your eyes and imagine that the snow is gently falling outside. Inside, a person is leaning over a big, steaming bowl full of soup and indulging in a heaping spoonful. It’s a classic, American scene to be sure but it may be improved upon with the addition of cheese spreads. Cheese spreads bring something extra to a meal and personally, we can’t think of spending National Soup Month without them.

Don’t believe us? Consider bowlfuls of French onion soup. They’re normally topped with what? That’s right, ooey goey cheese. Well what if you tossed the shredded, Wisconsin cheese to the side and reached for a dollop of toasted onion spread instead? It’s made with creamy cheddar cheese, onions and chives. Now doesn’t that sound like a perfect way to top off a bowl full of French onion soup?

French onion isn’t the only soup that would welcome a little dollop or two of premium cheese spreads. We think that potato, spinach and broccoli soups would taste amazing with bleu cheese spread. Simply stir some into the soup before bringing the bowls to the table. And if you really want to elevate the meal more, add some deli meats, like beef sticks and smoked pepperoni.

Cube them up as part of a soup topping or serve them with artisan breads. Either way would surely garner two thumbs up from everyone fortunate enough to be at the table. And don’t let your imagination stop with the soup and cheese spread combinations we’ve already mentioned. After all, National Soup Month only comes around once a year. So live it up by enjoying as many cheesy, hot combinations as possible.

Presently, there are more than a dozen cheese spreads and thousands of soup recipes to choose from. Thus, making it through the month without having the same soup twice should be easy. To learn more about pairing cheese spreads with soups during the month of January and beyond, please contact us.

It’s almost time to dust off your picnic blankets and head to the park in search of the perfect place for a romantic, afternoon repast. So, we wanted to share some of our best spring picnicking tips in the weeks ahead, starting with how to pair cheese gift baskets with wines. Let’s start with our For Cheese Lovers Only gift basket and spread out from there.

Our For Cheese Lovers Only gift basket contains all the essentials couples need to enjoy a quick snack under a shade tree. It comes with your choice of cheese spread and cheese block flavors. So, since we can’t be sure which cheese flavors you’ll choose, we’re serving up a few general wine pairing tips:

If you plan on selecting spicy cheeses, like our hot pepper or habanero, go with a bottle of off-dry, white wine. They seem to compliment spicy varieties of cheese perfectly. For Danish blue cheeses, try serving dessert wines or a great bottle of port. And as for the assorted cheddar cheeses, give a cabernet sauvignon or oak-barrel aged chardonnay some consideration.

We’ve also got other gift items like the Ham and Cheese Masterpiece, Cabela’s Gourmet All-Occasion Snack Basket, Rat Pack, Incredible Party Favorites and Happy Mom Basket as well as ones that include fruits and sweets. If you choose one of them, try pairing light-bodied white wines with the mild cheese spreads and full-bodied red ones with the aged or heavily seasoned varieties. The same pairings should work for block cheeses and cheese curds snacks.

For the best results, serve the gift basket cheeses at room temperature. If you are worried about the weather, chill the cheeses in your home fridge first. Then pack them in your picnic basket and head off into the afternoon sun. By the time you reach your picnicking destination, the cheeses should be back at room temperature and ready to eat. The wine, on the other hand, may be served slightly chilled.

To learn more about stocking the perfect picnic basket in the lovely spring days ahead, please contact us today. At Deli Direct Inc., we’ve got meats, cheeses, pickles, dips, snacks, drink mixes and beer buckets in stock that are ideal for outdoor dining.

With the holidays fast approaching, there is no doubt you may be host to a slew of wonderful holiday parties, or perhaps that has already begun. With all the planning you have to put into them-from cleaning the house to putting up decorations to finding the best assortment of delicious foods-you will certainly want to simplify the preparation process while simultaneously wowing your guests. Cheese spreads are just the thing you need to accomplish that! Here are three reasons why you need cheese spreads at your next soiree!

Cheese spreads offer class

They are beautiful and can really add to the ambiance and festive decorations you will have at your party. While upping the warmth of the room, cheese also provides an air of sophistication and attention to detail. And don't forget that a cheese spread pairs excellently with some gourmet crackers and delicious wine!

They are conversation starters

Nothing pleases a connoisseur of cheese quite like having a plethora of cheeses to discuss with other party guests. Two people who may have nothing in common other than their appreciation for a good cheese spread may find themselves having a delightful conversation simply because of the Jalapeno or Swiss Almond cheese spread that you are offering at your party. So to put it plainly (which these cheese spreads are not!), your cheese spreads just helped make your party a success!

Pairs with other delicious foods

When you decide to serve cheese spreads at your next party, you are now opening up the opportunity to serve a wide array of delectable, gourmet breads and crackers. Or mix some in to rev up your appetizers. This will have your guests raving and will make the party so much more memorable.
