When I saw the name of the app Ask the Cheesemonger, I immediately thought two things. One, that is the greatest app name in the history of apps. It’s short, to the point, and uses the word “cheesemonger” in the title. Two, how does one obtain the title of “cheesemonger”? Go to school, get a master’s degree in cheesemongering, in order to join the prestigious cheesemongering firm of the McIntosh and Bowman Cheesemongers? Those questions were not answered, but I got a lot of info on cheese!
Ask the Cheesemonger features a list of cheeses, with information on their taste, texture, and basic facts on the cheese’s ingredients, like what sort of milk is used in the production of the cheese. There’s also a wine matcher for matching up a delicious adult beverage with a cheese whose flavors will complement each other. There’s a cheese trivia game, to test one’s knowledge on cheese. Still have cheese questions? Then check out the “Ask the cheesemonger” section where common questions about cheese are answered, along with the ability to send an email directly to a cheesemonger. For $2.99, the full version of the app can be unlocked, granting acces to info on over 300 cheeses, additional trivia questions, and more alcohol pairings. Proceeds benefit cheesemongering.
