Over the last 11 years, Jessica Sennett has devoted herself to the craft of cheese making. There's a world of difference between a goat milk tomme from the Alsatian hills and a sheep milk tomme from the Larzac plateaus.
There are reasons behind these differences: the natural climate, the terrain, and the traditions of the locals. Designed by cheese expert Jessica Sennett, the Cheese Grotto is a humidor that eliminates the need to wrap cheese while keeping it more fresh than other cheese storage alternatives such as cheese paper and plastic wrap.
The Cheese Grotto duals as a serving piece at the dining room table with its removable serving trays and it can even be used to age cheese. The Cheese Grotto is the best way to store cheese.
Drawing from both ancient cheese wisdom and contemporary technology, the Cheese Grotto allows you to create an optimal cheese storage climate right in your own kitchen. The Cheese Grotto is designed to be enjoyable to use, beautiful to look at, and durable enough to last a lifetime.
Since 8,000 BC, cheese has been an essential staple for communities all over the world. Before refrigeration, there were varying methods for storing cheese. Early nomads kept cheese in natural caves or they made an enclave in the forest by tightly wrapping trees in the animal hide to keep their cheeses cool and out of the sun.
Throughout the centuries, cheese makers and keepers have come up with ways to store cheese and prolong its life, regulating humidity, air flow, light exposure, temperature, and carefully selecting materials the cheese would touch.
We hope your Cheese Grotto will serve to enhance your cheese experiences and will pique your curiosity and enchantment with one of the most complex and varied foods throughout time.
Welcome to Cheese Grotto!
