Goodbye Alfred!

Posted in Our People

Alfred Mathys retires from Rumiano Cheese after 30 years

Goodbye Alfred!

It's sad to see Alfred leave after 30 years of cheese-making for Rumiano Cheese. Joby Rumiano -- fourth generation cheese maker -- has written a letter showing what an important asset Alfred Mathys was to the Rumiano Family:

"Rumiano Cheese Company has had its share of great cheese makers throughout its 92-year history. Early in the 1920's John, Fred, and Richard Rumiano began making cheese, then came Raymond and George Rumiano who carried on the tradition, followed by Raymond's sons, John and Baird Rumiano, who hired the present-day master cheese maker Alfred Mathys. Alfred's knowledge of microbiology and bacteriology, along with his expertise in the art of cheese making, has allowed Rumiano Cheese Company to become one of the finest cheese manufacturers in the world.

Smoked Mozzarella

Posted in Our Cheese

Cheese of the month

Smoked Mozzarella

Our Smoked Mozzarella is a favorite for many, and has quite an interesting story. It all began in the late 80s when the Rumiano Cheese purchased the "Landmark Cheese" (our raw cheese line) from RW Knudsen. When we obtained Landmark, it came with  some packaging equipment, inventory and a metal box slightly larger than a refrigerator. Originally, the new equipment was used to smoke the Landmark brand raw cheddar until Jack Gibson (former Rumiano Cheese innovator and team leader) asked, why not smoke mozzarella? Little did they know it would begin to out-sell the smoked raw cheddar and the classic was born.

Masters of Cheese Highlight: Gordon Edgar

Rainbow Grocery San Francisco

Masters of Cheese Highlight: Gordon Edgar

And we're back! We've got the Masters of Cheese blog series back for another interview with Gordon Edgar from Rainbow Grocery Coop in San Francisco. This established cheese-buyer and all around cheese fan has a published book, as well as years of cheese-mongoring experience.

RCC: What is your background? How long have you been in the cheese business?

GE: I grew up in the Bay Area and have been the cheese buyer at Rainbow Grocery Cooperative in San Francisco since 1994. My cheesy memoir, Cheesemonger: a Life on the Wedge, was published in 2010 by Chelsea Green


RCC: When buying cheese, what are the most important aspects that you look for?

GE: First, does it taste good? A great story means nothing if no one wants to eat the finished product. Second, is care taken in the shipping/packaging? There's no use making great cheese if it doesn't make it to the store in good shape. Third, does it fill a niche or is it an udgrade on a cheese we already have? Fourth, OK you can tell me your story now.

Cheesy Rigatoni Recipe

Rumiano Family Recipes

In the spirit of the Holiday Recipe Contest, the Rumiano family would like to share a recipe of our own. This recipe is has been passed down for three generations starting with grandmother Claire Rumiano. I (Owen Rumiano) had the chance to recreate this family Christmas time favorite. The recipe has many points of customization and is very flexible with flavors. It always turns out great, especially when you put enough cheese on it!

We're happy to be able to share our family traditions with our supporters and fans. Happy holidays to all, and cheers to a new year! Every Christmas Eve, we would all gather at our grandmother's house for a delicious feast. This dish was always the first out and the first gone. It has been passed down from generation to generation, starting with my grandmother Claire to my aunts and so on. It's a family recipe that only gets better with time. (But, it's never as good as grandma's!)
