Can anybody confirm if Cascade and/or Pacific Cheese actually make their own cheese, or are just a slice-and-wrap shop like Sargento in Wisconsin?

Hi Gang

It's pretty easy to order Grande Cheese online at Vern's Cheese. The Solid blocks at http://www.vernscheese.com:10088/vernsShop/index.php?route=product/category&path=59_61&limit=100 and the shredded at http://www.vernscheese.com:10088/vernsShop/index.php?route=product/category&path=59_79

Good Luck it is good stuff!

John
+1 for Verne's and Grande. Since PenMac stopped selling Grande mozzarella I haven't been able to find any other suppliers online for Grande other than Verne's.

Coming in to this late, but your best bet is to try and find a good food service provider closest to you. I'm in Illinois and we have GFS's all over. They don't carry the type I like in stock (50/50) but they get it in 1 day.

If you happen to be in NE Pa or NY state, check out MaineSource mainesfood.net. They sell individual loaves of Grande, $2.79/lb last time I was there, and 5-lb bags of shredded for $3/lb.  They also sell individual cans of Stanislaus and Escalon tomatoes/sauces and lots of other goodies.
Man does not live by bread alone.  There's also tomato, cheese and pepperoni.
