Natural Products Expo West 2014 Trend Spotting

It's been about a month since Anaheim's Natural Products Expo West 2014 and it's still fresh in the minds like it were last week. It keeps getting bigger and bigger every year, there were two extra halls opened for 2014. Expo West 2014 was a record breaking year with 67,000 attendees and the most first time exhibitors in the show's history. It's easy to say that this year's Expo was quite extraordinary.

April is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Month

Enter Pinterest Photo Contest to Win Rumiano Grilled Cheese Gift Basket

April is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Month

Have you heard?  April is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Month.  Can you believe it?  A whole month dedicated to grilled cheese.  Now that's something to celebrate!  

The grilled cheese sandwich has been a staple in the American diet all the way back to the 1920's.  Another interesting fact is that originally the sandwich was open faced but when sliced bread became more available in the 1960's a top slice of bread became the norm.  Since then the grilled cheese sandwich has evolved immensely.  Just about every restaurant offers it on their menu in one form or another from plain to fancy. It's pretty amazing how creative you can get with some bread and a few slices of cheese.

In honor of National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Month 2014, we are hosting our first ever Pinterest Photo Contest. All you need to do is submit a photo of your favorite grilled cheese sandwich recipe to qualify to win a Rumiano Grilled Cheese Sandwich Gift Basket.  We'd love to see your creative version of a grilled cheese sandwich!

How to Open a Block of Cheese with Ease

Posted in Our Cheese

How to Open a Block of Cheese with Ease

You’ll need:
(1) Sharp and clean knife
(1) Block of Rumiano Family Organic cheese
(1) Clean cutting board


Step 1: Set the block of cheese on the cutting board, with the largest lip of plastic facing upward. Using the point of the knife horizontally cut into the plastic lip (make sure you are cutting away from yourself at all times!)

Step 2: Push the knife (away from you!) horizontally along the top of the block, resting the blade on top of the cheese. Saw constantly until you reach the end of the wrap and the knife breaks free.

Step 3: Pull back the strip of plastic you cut, opening the package slightly.

Step 4: Once the plastic has been pulled back, an opening should be revealed. Place the knife into the slit

Step 5: Cut the plastic while the blade rests on the flat side of the cheese.

Step 6: After slicing horizontally, and vertically, the wrap should easily peel back, opening the block.

Step 7: Cut the cheese and enjoy!

Masters Of Cheese Episode 5 Pre-Pack Department

Written by Owen Rumiano, Posted in Masters of Cheese

Masters Of Cheese Episode 5 Pre-Pack Department

The Masters Of Cheese video series highlighting Willows comes to a close with the Pre-Pack department. Pre-Pack was started in the 1950s as a way to package Rumiano Cheese. Eventually, Pre-Pack was used to package third party cheese. Since the department was one of few, it became a co-packer in Northern California for companies without packaging capabilities. Today, Pre-Pack continues to co-pack while packing Rumiano Cheese as well.

Bees, the fuzzy pollinators that instill fear in children while simultaneously creating one of the most delicious sweets on earth, are undeniably important to humanity. The simple process of pollinating isn't quite as simple without our buzzing friends and humans are yet to find an efficient and practical alternative.
