Its Ok, I'm Cheesy Too!

What can I say, I love a good cheese!My personal favorite is a sharp piave or a nice aged parmesan.Of all of the grocery stores and shops that I have been to for good cheese, I have one personal favorite.The Truffle Cheese Shop, here in downtown Denver.

The Truffle Cheese and Exotic Foods Shop sells exactly what its name states, a huge selection of great cheeses and an array of exotic hard-to-find foods.When you walk into their small shop on the corner of 6th Ave and Detroit, the smell of over a hundred different cheeses first greats you.The place is fairly small, with the cheese cooler taking up the majority of the space.There is one small round table in the middle of the room where various jams, jellies, and chocolates are displayed.Against the walls around the rest of the shop are wooden dressers and bookshelves holding the remainder of their gifts, from truffle oil, fresh bread, and even tee-shirts with The Truffle Cheese Shop logo.

Even with all of the great jams, oils, and other foods in the shop; cheese is what I come to get.Approaching the case you can already see the many different types of cheese from all over the globe for you to choose from.The owners travel to Europe at least once a year to purchase the exotic cheeses, than bring them back to Denver for us to try!

While you may know a few of the cheeses on display, there are definitely a few that I am guessing a new to you.But, that’s alright, because you can try every type of cheese they have!Just ask to try a specific kind, and the owner will give you a small shaving presented on tiny antique tasting plates that he has collected in his travels to Europe.No only can you try each cheese, but The Truffle Shop will help you pick out the prefect cheese for your next party or to just match your tastes.

So if you live in Denver, and have never been to the Truffle Cheese Shop, there is no question about it… you have to visit!And, for thoes of you who do not reside in Denver, do not fret!Just check out their website and order some of their foods!
