Cheese of the Moment:

Blue Paradise

Selection by milk: Cow, Vegetarian Rennet

Milk Treatment: Pasteurized

 

Located in Mineral Point, Wisconsin, Hook's Cheese produces several varieties of cheese, ranging from classic Wisconsin cheddars to several types of blue cheese.

 

Owners Tony and Julie Hook started Hook's Cheese Company in 1976 and initially made cheddar and swiss. Since 1980, they have continued to expand their range and have won numerous awards for their cheeses.

 

Milk for production comes from several small, local dairy farms near Mineral Point. The cows are all raised sustainably and without rBGH.

 

Aged for three to six months, Blue Paradise is a soft and mild, double cream blue. Very rich and smooth with a long, balanced finish with flavors of lemon, blueberry and black pepper.

Cut-to-order Gourmet Cheese!

 

Cheese Shop 831 is an artisanal cheese shop located in Capitola, California. 

 

At over 100 different cheeses, we have many international cheeses, but strive to bring focus to local and regional cheesemakers and farmsteads.

We also showcase many small batch and hard-to-come-by cheeses that you won't find anywhere else in town.

We offer tastings every day!  Our tasting menu rotates every few days, and you can also try anything in the case!

We also have to-go Grilled Cheeses every day from 11:30-2:30pm (we are closed Mondays).

Everything in the shop has been carefully and thoughtfully curated with the producers, our community and the environment in mind.
