Cheese box sets designed for you to share in the discovery of pairing specialty food, beer and wine. Delivery for the holidays 2012!
DELIVERABLE BY CHRISTMAS 2012!
We Love Specialty Food And You Can Too!
We love specialty food, especially cheese. But specialty food can be really intimidating and unapproachable.
It’s easy to get discouraged because you’re afraid to ask the wrong questions or seem unknowledgeable; maybe you won’t pair something right or you’ll waste a bunch of money on something that doesn't taste good.
But there is so much joy that comes from experimentation and discovery with these foods and from there is where you develop a deeper knowledge and confidence. There is so much there to experience and when you pair things together you truly get to experience all of the hidden magic of each one.
We love to inspire these kinds of food stories and that is why we have created a collection of cheese box sets specially selected to go with your favorite beer and wine.
We want our cheese to meet and marry other great food and drink and we want to inspire confidence in our customers to go out and write their own food stories. So, we designed these cheese collections with the goal of guiding people to great combinations in a way that is approachable and affordable and that lets you share in the discovery while building a deeper knowledge of fine food. We have removed all the guesswork and intimidation so you can focus on spending time with the people you enjoy while you discover your own favorites.
What's In It?
Each of the three kits (Red Wine, White Wine and Beer) has three pieces of cheese (no process cheese here) so you get approximately 1.5 lbs of cheese in each box. Each one contains a mix of domestic and imported cheeses that offer the characteristics people look for but with a slight twist. All of our boxes were designed to be useful. Inside the cover of each box are suggested wine or beer pairings and the back of the box contains information about the cheeses and their flavors. The flap of the box can be cut and transformed into cheese name cards to be used on your cheese trays so your guests can know what they're eating. Each flap is color coded so you know which cheese is for beer and which are for wines once they are placed on your cheese boards. As you and your guests combine your favorite drinks with our cheese sets you will have fun discovering and discussing all the flavors you never knew were there.
How Can I Use Them?
Looking for a great activity for or addition to Wedding Showers, birthday brunches, dinner parties or casual nights with friends? These box sets are a perfect way to get people talking and enjoying time together. Our box sets are also great to give to a party host, as corporate gifts or as a perfect present for that special person on your list that loves food, wine and beer. This will make you the envy of any dinner party or the most welcome guest. They are fun to display with drinks and they come in a gorgeous box anyone would feel lucky to get.
When Can I Get My Hands On Them?
All of our box sets can ship in time for THIS holiday season (you can have them by Dec. 24th) or if you prefer your box sets can be ordered for New Year's, Super Bowl or other occasions.
Our products are perishable and that means we have to take special care in the packaging and shipping that we use. This can get expensive and we need help ensuring that these boxes get out into our customer's hands with the freshness and quality it had when it leaves our facility. We have worked hard to get these box sets ready and produced in time for the holidays and your pledge means we will have the means to be able to assemble, pack and ship them for you and your loved ones to enjoy.
There is a world of discoveries to be made and we hope you will join us in our pursuit of that next perfect combination.
A very special thanks and much GRATE-itude to the following people that made this possible:
Noah Rosenberg (video) and happyMedium, Christine, Adam, Dave, Clara, Andrew, Lara, John, Mallory, Harlow and all our partners that sampled, suggested, created or otherwise contributed to the success of the final product. Thanks also goes out to Ben, Tom, Brenda, Linda, Cele, Don, Geri, and Terry for accepting test shipments and providing feedback!
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
All of our products are perishable and this means we have to secure the proper shipping materials and ship for 2 day delivery. This can get tricky when weekends and holidays are involved. The challenge for us is always ensuring that our products get to our customers promptly so that the temperature and quality of the product is protected. We have partnered with knowledgeable carriers and we take precautions to pack the shipping cartons with enough to keep the product cold for slight delays.
We also will need cooperation from all of our backers to be able to get their addresses back soon enough after we send out the survey to get the product in their hands for the holidays.
