Grande Cheese near Seattle?
« on: October 27, 2006, 08:39:13 PM »
Does anyone know a place to get some Grande Cheese here in the northwest? 
Peterson cheese (http://www.petersoncheese.com) does sell it but only in bulk.  I may eventually break down and buy from there but I'd prefer smaller quantities.  I just got my shipment from PennMac and will try it out next week!

There are a few of us here to possibly share in a bulk buy.

Here is what their catalog says:

MOZZARELLA WH. MILK LOAF 97-310 GRANDE CHEESE 8/7 LB CASE

I suppose that means 8 loafs where each is 7lbs.

Yikes!

I think we'll be needing a bit more help.

Hmmm, that's over 18 lbs of cheese if we split it three ways. What kind of price tag are we talking about here, do you know?

I might be able to tie in a fourth too.

I got a price quote today and it was a little cheaper than I thought. 
They said, "Item #97-310 is Grande whole milk mozzarella loaves 8/7lb. per case @ $2.45 per lb."

I'm currently using Belgioioso from Cash & Carry and the price varies from 2.70-3.25 for a one pound package. I know it's not the best cheese but it is slim pickens here in the Pacific Northwest. I was just wondering if Grande is so good I need to consider buying 14 pounds @ 2.45 a pound vs the Cash and Carry option.

I find Belgioioso to be more of a gourmet cheese and I like it with tomato and basil or even eating it on its own.  Grande cheese is much better, in my opinion, for pizza... especially when trying to achieve a NY style.  I also like it for other Italian dishes.
