Monger Madness

March is here, which means it’s time for Monger Madness! We asked some of our best cheese experts to put together one mouthwatering bite with three Murray’s ingredients, so follow us as we taste through and eliminate each bite until there’s one monger left standing. May the best bite win!

The Classic Crunch

Monger David Reiss takes three iconic Murray’s products and combines them to create one flavor-packed bite full of satisfying texture. The smooth, nutty firmness of Annelies is complemented by a sweet addition of bright Cherry Confit, completed by the savory, salty crunch of Pipcorn Truffle Popcorn.

The Italian Picnic

Take your taste buds on a sun-soaked vacation with Adam Thompson’s original bite. He’s taken a crunchy Trois Petit Mini Toast and piled it high with fudgy, earthy Taleggio and a dollop of Marinated Sun Dried Tomato—a delightful mix of textures that combine to create one fresh and flavorful mouthful.

The Bright Blossom

This sweet floral mouthful from Amanda Byers captures flavor in bloom with a bite of Alp Blossom, a firm, savory cheese coated in Austrian flora, nestled onto a crunchy and fruity Raincoast Cranberry and Hazelnut Crisp. To top it off? A drizzle of Red Bee Honeycomb for some herbal loving.

The Spice Wrap

From monger Cristina Oravec, this savory bite has a hot surprise. She’s wrapped a slice of light, supple Pecorino Fresco in a ribbon of velvety smooth Prosciutto San Daniele. The kicker? A drizzle of Blank Slate Szechuan Chili Oil for just a hint of heat to make this melt-in-your mouth wrap stand out.
