Take This Cheese Trail Through Tennessee For The Most Delicious Day Trip Ever
Cheese tends to be the type of food that initiates division – you either like it or you don’t, you’re a huge fan or you can’t stand the stuff. If you lie on the, “I love this so much I’d eat it on everything” side of the spectrum, then this specialty cheese road trip through the heart of Tennessee just might be for you. Take a Saturday and stock up for the winter – we’re in for a doozy and you’re going to want some cheesy comfort when the nights get cold.
You can take the trip yourself,
True cheese fans will fall in love with this perfectly planned, cheese-infused day trip. Care to join?
1. Bleu Fox Cheese Shop - Chattanooga
We're kind of jumping the gun on this one, because we're so excited for Chattanooga to have its own artisan cheese shop. Bleu Fox Cheese Shop will open this December, with homemade cheeses perfect for your well-crafted cheese boards and charcuterie plates. (330 E. Main Street)
2. The Bloomy Rind - Nashville
Did you know that The Bloomy Rind is the only place you can buy cut-to-order cheese? Yep, it's true. This east Nashville spot offers up both local and regional cheeses, works of culinary art that will make you feel like you've died and gone to heaven. You can order cheese platters for personal events, or simply snag some of the crackers and olives they have on hand to make one of your own. (501 Gallatin Avenue)
3. Follow Me Cheese - Nashville
Located in the highly popular Shoppes at Fatherland, this specialty cheese spot is great for local and regional cheeses handpicked with the highest level of care. Pick up a handful to make a cheese plate or snag a few to give as gifts. Follow me Cheese is a great place for last minute holiday gifts! (1006 Fatherland St Suite 206)
4. The Cheese Cupboard and Hofbrauhaus Restaurant - Gatlinburg
This classic cheese shop is located in the tourist-heavy town of Gatlinburg, but that doesn't mean it's short on flavor! You can indulge in a made-to-order sandwich and take some cheese home to go in this quirky German pub-style restaurant.
(634 Parkway # 14)
5. Simontons Cheese & Gourmet House - Crossville
Here's the thing: we are ALWAYS huge fans of cheese shops that have a ton of cheese samples. Simontons most definitely does, which means you can choose the right cheese for your event, precisely to your taste. Though you won't be tasting the wine ahead of time (sigh), the staff is extremely knowledgable and willing to help out with perfect pairings. (2278 Highway 127 S Ste 101)
