TIPS FROM CHEF TO CHEF

01. Real Cheese – as opposed to analogous cheese – makes all the difference when melted cheese is asked for. It has a superior taste and excellent melting qualities – and tastes great even when cooling down. Real cheese is made from fresh cow’s milk with no added flavourings. It is a highly valuable grocery and part of a health conscious diet.

03. Cheese is a wholesome food and high in calcium and vitamins A, B2, B12, D and is a good source of protein.

02. The higher the fat content, the better the cheese will melt.
