I’m so excited to introduce you to our “new” Next-Generation of Coborn’s stores in Isanti, MN. So many people have asked me what makes it so different and I thought why we don’t just go shopping. So I took a trip to the new Coborn’s Marketplace store so that I could walk you through it and introduce you to some of the employees that work there.

Cheese of the Month: Somerdale

Cheese of the Month: Somerdale Enjoy Me With Cheeses

Enjoy this delicious Cheese with our Coborn’s English Cheddars which were developed to be paired alongside flavorful wines or craft beer. Red Wine pairs nicely with the White Cheddar Aged One Year which is made with Swiss Cultures that results in a flavorful and slight sharp nutty flavor. If you prefer a White Wine then enjoy Somerdale Red Cheddar which has been Aged One Year and has a more sweet taste along with a nutty flavor.

This, “Enjoy Me With” concept was developed for the self service case within the Deli, thus enabling our Coborn’s Guests to quickly identify a cheese to pair with the beverage they know they will be consuming for any given occasion! With all the choices of wine and cheese pairings out there we know this can be difficult! That’s why we are so happy we can help. Check out the Recipe below that features your favorite Somerdale Classic English Cheese variety!

Meet Kretschmar

It’s a really big week at Coborns and CobornsDelivers deli department. We’ve introduced a new line of healthy and delicious meat and cheeses from Kretschmar Deli. We’re proud to offer Kretschmar because they share our commitment to excellence in offering the best foods in the fridge and on the table for you and your family.

High quality deli meats make a huge difference in flavor–for the turkey sandwich in your lunch and the roast beef on your French dip sandwich. Kretschmar’s signature line of off-the-bone deli meats features ham, turkey, and beef with exceptional flavors. We like that it features all-natural seasonings with no binders, no fillers, no gluten, no additives, no ISPs (Isolated Soy Proteins), and no MSG.

We think you’ll like the Kretschmar cheese selection as well. Their Wisconsin Master Mark Cheese repeatedly wins competitions worldwide with gourmet varieties like butterkase, mild red wax cheddar, smoked baby swiss and havarti. Try it for your next cheese tray or sliced for sandwiches.

Help us give Kretschmar a warm welcome by stopping by your local Coborn’s–or adding it to your CobornsDelivers order) to give it a try. Let us know what you think!

Cooking With Cold Cuts

Recipes for Cold Cuts

Sandwiches are great – they’re an easy meal for lunch and a fun dinner if you don’t feel like cooking. We’ve blogged about some of the best sandwich recipes we’ve found. Press them in a panini grill or on the stove and you get a hot sandwich with melted cheese. Pretty darn tasty. But what if you have plenty of cold cuts and you’re not in the mood for a sammy? We love these recipes for using cold cuts for something other than sandwiches.

Using Cold Cuts in Recipes

Add cold cuts to salad: slice salami and saute for a hot and crispy topping for a delicious spinach salad.

Slice up your favorite meats and add them to a frittata or omelet: this Ham & Cheese Frittata is done in 30 minutes and you can sub in deli ham for the ham steak. Continue reading “Cooking With Cold Cuts”
