Award-winning cheeses don’t exist in a vacuum, they’re meant for eating and enjoying. That’s why Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese is delighted to share the news about its latest batch of awards earned at the 2017 Wisconsin State Fair Cheese and Butter Contest—including prestigious First Place honors for Crave Brothers Farmstead Classics Mascarpone in the Soft Spreadable Cheese Category—and offer serving suggestions for your summer celebrations.

In addition to its First Place award, Crave Brothers was awarded Second Place both for Fresh Mozzarella in the Mozzarella Category, and Marinated Fresh Mozzarella, in the Flavored Soft Cheese Category.  Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese provides the following recipe ideas for enhancing menus with these cheeses at summer picnics, cookouts and get-togethers.

Crave Brothers Farmstead Classics Mascarpone is made from fresh, sweet cream. Its rich flavor and luxurious texture make it a natural for pairing with fresh summer berries, lemony or chocolate desserts, and sparkling wine.  Dress up your summer celebrations with cool ideas such as Mascarpone-filled fresh strawberries, Chilled Raspberry Soup with Lemon Mascarpone Sorbet, Lemon Mascarpone Tarts, and easy-to-make Chocolate Mascarpone Pie.

Crave Brothers Fresh Mozzarella is a versatile cheese available in a variety of forms, including medallions, 8 oz. and 1lb. balls, 1 lb. logs, containers of small mozzarella balls in four sizes, and in curd form. Pair Fresh Mozzarella with sliced fresh tomatoes, summer fruit such as peaches, or top grilled vegetables, burgers or pizzas with it.

Crave Brothers Marinated Fresh Mozzarella comes in a ciliegine shape (cherry-sized balls), marinated in an olive oil/canola oil blend with a signature spice mix. Upgrade your summer pasta salads, antipasto trays or appetizer kabobs with Marinated Fresh Mozzarella.

Crave Brothers Farmstead Classics Cheeses are special because they’re made with milk from the Crave family’s own dairy herd in a cheese-making facility that uses 100 percent green power, and practices water conservation and recycling.
