Clockwise from L to R: Humboldt Fog, Manchego, Garroxta and St. Marcellin

There’s no shortage of wonderful imported and domestic cheeses at Ratto’s for your holiday gatherings. Take the edge off entertaining by welcoming your guests with a glass of wine and a beautifully arranged cheese board with all the accoutrements. Our cheese case is filled to the brim with a wonderful assortment of our favorites, along with a few specials for the holiday season. Come in and peruse our selection. If you need help deciding what to get, we’d be happy to give recommendations and samples. You’ll love our cute little crocks of St. Marcellin that can be popped into the oven to warm, a nutty Garroxta from Spain, and St. Andre, our favorite triple creme from France. We always feature Humboldt Fog, our top seller for cheese platters, and Manchego is always a crowd pleaser.  You’ll want to garnish your cheese platter with quince paste, fig jam, dried fruits, nuts and a good assortment of olives & crackers, all available at Ratto’s. Need a charcuterie platter to accompany the cheese? Pick up a stick of authentic Iberico chorizo from Spain,  some prosciutto, an assortment of salumi, and a little pate. If you’re pressed for time, let us cater your party with one of our  cheese or deli platters. Check our catering menu for details.

Dear Fresh Mozzarella Salad,

You combine creamy mozzarella, sweet and tart tomatoes, briny artichoke hearts and the unexpected sweetness of grapes. You glisten in olive oil. You are delicate yet bold. You’re hearty yet light. You are herbaceous, complex, and always there for me.
