THE FLAVORFUL EXPERIENCE

Challerhocker, pronounced "holler hocker", meaning "sitting in the cellar" is a Swiss cheese washed in brine and spices and then aged for a minimum of 12 months. Made from thermalized milk, the cheese is dense and smooth without any holes or cracks.  The repeated brine washing and extended ageing reveal a great depth of flavour and texture, unlike any Swiss cheese. Its initial aroma and flavour is a lovely concoction of roasted peanuts, melted leeks, brown butter, sweet cream and caramel. Made by cheesemaker Walter Rass, the lingering silky, salty finish of Challerhocker makes it an ideal cheese for the winter months. The cheese pairs ideally with a glass of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Cider.

FROM GOOGLE REVIEW

Mary Geschwindt "I had a large catering order (about 20-30 people) for 3 Saturday's in a row. Eastern District made the process of arranging this catering so easy and left me with nothing to worry about! Their owner was super accommodating and willing to work with some specific requests we had about packaging the order (not to mention working with allergies, but we happened to have none). We ordered an assortment of their sandwiches and everyone found them delicious. I personally tried all of their vegetarian sandwich options and each was so tasty! I will definitely stop by here again when I'm next in the neighborhood.''
