ERASMO,
Hi I am in Jersey could you tell me where that distributor is located so I can grab a case. The blend Is the 50WMM/50 Provolone or 50 WMM/50 part skim?
Thanks
John

I was checking out the area.....
It looks like its down near Philly area in Jersey,,,,way south...........
I would call first too see if they have what you want....
If you are near there or would enjoy a ride.........You cannot beat the price on a case.............

Jkonk,  the east coast blend is WM/PS.  Not prov.  I use the grande in my oven and it cooks up great.  That is suprising to some people.  For my taste at high heat the 100% WM is too oily,  but all the other PS blends are great especially when taking price and convenience into consideration.  It also freezes very well.   When buying check your date codes the shelf life is 42 days from its manufacture date. -marc

Grande claims a 42 day shelf life and doesn't recommend freezing their cheese. How do you deal with this? Consuming 30 lbs of cheese in 42 days would be tough in my house and we love cheese and pizza.

JConk,
I looked up Stavola yesterday and it is around Deptford,  I plan on stopping in there when I have work in the area.  Judging by your posts I would say your in the I287 I80 area.  If so Bova is much closer to you.  It is about 20 minutes past New Hope.  I would call first to see if they have it.  I usually get the Grande Part Skim.  They also have Escalon products.  I was using the 6 in 1 for Pizza and pasta, nut now I am using there non DOP San Marzano (6lb can for $8-Cheaper by the case) for the Pizzas.
