You Don’t Know (Monterey) Jack


Learn more about the cheese named after a man and a town.

A semisoft cheese with a mild flavour, Monterey Jack has a texture that is creamy yet firm, and while it’s light, there’s a tiny bit of tang.

Monterey Jack gets its name from a combination of where it was created – Monterey, California – and its creator – David Jack.

This all-American cheese goes great with Mexican or Spanish dishes and melts very well.

Cheese Calculations

How does one determine how much cheese is needed? Here’s a rough guideline to help with cheese counts: If entertaining with other foods: 45-60 g per person; If it’s just wine and cheese: 120 g per person; If including a platter of hors d’oeuvres, pate, cold cuts, or salads: 60 g per person;   To help get a better sense of portion sizes, a 1” cube of cheese is about 30 g.
