5 Ways To Celebrate Cheese Lovers Day

Today is a very special holiday for lovers of cheese. As a cheese fanatic myself, I will be celebrating the day in many different ways. Here are a few ideas for you and your cheese-loving friends!

1. THROW A CHEESE DAY PARTY

Hosting a cheese party for friends and family is a great way to celebrate this holiday. There are many ways to incorporate cheese into a party setting. Guests, wearing all yellow of course, could be offered cheesy dishes through different stations. Make-your-own nacho, mac and cheese, or grilled cheese bars are both entertaining and scrumptious. Throughout the night guests could take photos at a “cheesy” photobooth. And serve Cheese Tea - yes, Cheese Tea -  any milk, fruit or green tea topped with frothy cream cheese!

2. HAVE A CHEESE PARTY... FOR ONE

For a more relaxed approach to the holiday, a stay-at home meal could be a way to celebrate. Cheese can be added to almost every dish. This is a chance to get creative in the kitchen! Pay homage to cheese on this holiday by creating any of the recipes on our Cheesy Pinterest Board here.

3. HIRE A CHEESE FOOD TRUCK!

Gorilla Cheese NYC is a favorite in NYC offering creative takes on childhood favorite: grilled cheese! Gorilla Cheese has the classics, like their American cheese on white bread with a side of tomato soup, and the outlandish, like their s’mores melt on graham cracker bread.  If you want a more mobile party for Cheese Lovers Day, the Gorilla Cheese NYC food truck is the way to go.

4. HOST A CHEESE TOUR

Looking to venture out to celebrate the cheesy holiday? Host a cheese tour! In NYC, we recommend hiring a Cheese Guide (yes, they exist) to lead the way. Pick a neighborhood and enjoy! And finish the tour at Beecher’s Handmade Cheese in the Flatiron District for a happy hour cocktail while watching the cheese being made.

5. HOST A DINNER PARTY AT A CHEESE RESTAURANT

Raclette, when cheese melted on a wheel and then scraped onto accompaniments such as potatoes, other vegetables, bread and meats, has become very popular in the last few years. If in NY, host a dinner party at the restaurant Raclette where a waiter will bring over a melted, half wheel of cheese and scrape the gooey goodness onto your food. This restaurant is the perfect way to celebrate the national cheese holiday.
