Are you a lover of cheese? How about movies? Wouldn’t it be great to be able to combine the two? Not like a movie covered in cheese, but going to a movie and eating cheese. Okay, I should tell you, I love cheese. Lots of different kinds too. I especially like discovering new cheeses that I like. It’s almost as great as discovering new chocolate that I like. Really I just love food and to eat and discovering new things is always fun. Cheese is right at the top of my list. Today I’m going to talk to you about Cheese Boards and Movies. Keep reading because during this post, I’m going to tell you about a really fun sweepstakes brought to us by Castillo Cheese.
What is your idea of a perfect movie night? Most of the time my perfect night is staying home to watch a movie, in my pajamas. However, my husband gets frustrated with me because then I also get on the computer and only pay 80% attention. At the movie I actually pay 100% attention because that’s the only thing going on, although the pajamas would be awesome. Right?
I would love to go to a movie theater with recliners, little tables and someone bringing me my snacks, like this amazing cheese tray using Castillo Havarti cheeses. These cheeses are so creamy and flavorful. My friend saw them in my car and I think I saw a little drool sliding down her chin.
My cheese tray has the Creamy and the Herbs & Spices variety of Castillo’s Havarti cheeses, but they also have varieties of Blue Cheese and of Creamy Cheese. They are really great on their own, but also pair nicely with a meat, some crackers and tiny tomatoes. Aren’t these little cheese kabobs cute?
I’m not a big fan of strong cheese, but these were both really nice. I especially love the Herbs & Spices variety. In my store, I found them in the cheese case by the deli, not with the regular cheeses. While I was cutting these up, I was afraid I was going to cut my daughter’s fingers off because she kept grabbing the cheese off of my cutting board. She still has all her digits though, so that proves she quick.
There is this new movie coming out on October 30th called Burnt, staring Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller and Matthew Rhys. Bradley Cooper plays a chef who had a two-star Michelin rating and then he blew it all. The movie is about what he does to get back to where he was and even better. In the movie, he uses Castello cheeses in some of his recipes. Kind of fun, right? I like Bradley Cooper. He’s a great actor. I’m pretty excited to see this movie. Maybe I will smuggle some Castello cheese in with me. (Don’t tell.) By the way, you can get some of the recipes in the movie right here too!
To celebrate the movie’s release, Castello cheese and Weinstein Company are having a sweepstakes where you can win prizes inspired by the film, like Private Cooking Classes for Two and a year’s supply of Castello cheese. Either of these would be awesome! The sweepstakes is open through November 20th. All you have to do to enter is click on this link and follow the simple instruction. If you win, maybe you will take me to your cooking classes as your second person.
So tell me, what is your favorite food to make with cheese? I mean, how can you go wrong, right?
