Picture this: You just moved into a new apartment and are having a few friends over for a housewarming party. There’s no better crowd-pleasing appetizer than a cheese platter, so you head to the grocery store to pick out some cheese and charcuterie. You get to the specialty cheese section and suddenly, panic sets in as you think about all the cheese questions you have. Ten different types of Parmesan? Parmigiano-Reggiano? What’s the difference? Which brands are best, and which country should your cheese be from? Why is there such a big difference in price? Does it matter how long the cheese has been aged?
When you’re standing in front of all of those beautifully packaged artisan cheeses, completely befuddled, you have three options:
1. Find the on-site expert: Maybe your grocery store or local shop has a cheese monger on staff to answer your questions. The problem is, they aren’t always readily available to help you make purchase decisions on-demand.
2. Phone a friend: You could text that friend or family member who is a self-proclaimed cheese connoisseur and trust they actually know as much as they claim.
3. Join the Cello Cheese Chat: Our cheese experts have the answers to all of your cheese questions and are ready to share their knowledge instantaneously. Cue the relief of having your own personal cheesemonger on speed dial.
We launched Cello Cheese Chat so you can have cheese expertise at your fingertips. The chat has several functions, but below are our favorites:
Ask a Question
If you’re shopping, pairing, pondering, or party planning, you can quickly level up your cheese knowledge and get the information you need by asking a question. Ask it anything you want about cheese, from “What pairs well with Parmesan?” to “What does Brie taste like?”
Take a Fun Quiz
Want to know if your favorite cheese matches your personality type? Take our quiz to learn your cheese identity. It’s a great conversation starter for the guests at that housewarming party. Speaking of, remember that friend who says they’re a cheese pro? The chatbot has a quiz for them to take so you can see how much they really know.
