Golf And Cheese And Sometimes Wine

Picnic Time Golf Course Sand Trap Golfing Cheese Board and Tool Set

What do you get the person who has everything? Nothing, of course. The really hard question when it comes to gift-giving is what to get the person who only likes certain things. Say, for example, golf and cheese. And sometimes wine.

Well, clearly when they are not golfing, they will be needing the Picnic Time Sand Trap Cheese Board and Tool Set. The golf-themed serving board comes with wine utensils as well as cheese tools and brings it all together just like when out on the 18th hole.

Got a golfer in your life who likes wine and cheese? Just follow the links (ahem) to find the gift that scores a hole in one.

Oh, and don’t forget the clubs:

Make Your Own Cheese Kit

Complete Artisan Cheese Making Kit from Grow and Make

How cheese gets from the cow to the plate is a journey that many may be interested in. Not surprisingly, to get there involves a lot of things that start with the letter ‘c.’ That would include: cheese wax, cheese shaping mold, cheese cultures, cheesecloth, cheese salt, and a cheese brush.

And that doesn’t even take into account all the things that don’t start with ‘cheese!’ For example, where would someone get the other necessary ingredients and tools? Well, if after all that one still needs: rennet, calcium chloride, coloring, thermometer and a wax melting pot, they most certainly did not pick up the Complete Artisan Cheese Making Kit from Grow and Make.

Everything listed above is included in the DIY cheese-making kit. That is, everything but the cow and the milk.

Product Description:
A complete cheese making kit for the culinary artisan (does not include milk). Includes ingredients and instructions for making gouda, colby, monterey jack, mozzarella and ricotta cheese.

Nordic Ware Basting Cover

Nordic Ware Basting Cover

The delicate dance of melting cheese on top of a hamburger on the grill can sometimes get messy. Messy in a good way. Except when the cheese doesn’t melt all the way through turning instead into a semi-solid glob of yellow-orange not-so-goodness. One could leave the cheeseburger on for longer, but not without risking it becoming overdone. Ah, but there is a solution to get all that melty goodness without turning that burger into a hockey puck. Put a lid on it.

Since it is probably a good idea to use something that can stand up to the heat of an open flame, the all-metal construction of the Nordic Ware Basting Cover would do the trick. Or you can do it like they do down in the French Quarter of New Orleans and use a hub cap instead. But then again, considering the price of car parts in general, perhaps this would be a more economical way to melt the cheese — leaving lots of money leftover to replenish the hockey puck supply with the real thing.

Cow Cheese Slice Holder

MSC Joie Moo-Moo Cheese Slice Holder Pod

Who knew that individually-wrapped processed cheese slices came directly from cows? Apparently they do. At least if the cow in question is the Joie Moo-Moo Cheese Slice Holder Pod. As for which came first? Well, that’s just one of the great mysteries going on inside of the refrigerator.

Nuance Cheese Cube

Nuance Cheese Cube

Sliced cheese is one of those things that make things better. Just think how it makes a ham and cheese sandwich (at least) twice as good! The Nuance Cheese Cube is a cheese slicer that looks good in use or not. The stainless-steel and ABS contraption features cool a design and an adjustable cutting height, so those ham and cheese sandwiches can not only taste good, but look good too.

Making time-friendly recipes like the one below help:

Ingredients:

1/3 cup red or green grapes
1/2 ounce Cabot Mild Cheddar or Monterey Jack, cubed
Heaping tablespoon roasted almonds

Directions:

1. Combine in small bowl.

That would be for something called a Munch Bowl. Keep reading to see some others in the form of a press release from Cabot. (Which are juuuuust a little more involved.)
