Cheese Grotto Fresco

Regular price $250.00 $0.00

The Fresco is slightly smaller than The Classico and made from birch wood. Birch wood has been used in the process of storing cheeses since the time of cheese caves and burying cheese to keep it cool and protected. Lucky for you, all the benefits of proper cheese storage can be enjoyed from your own kitchen ... no more maintaining a cheese cave on the side. Made with food safe, sustainable, non-toxic birch wood to resist mold and stains.

From the design to materials used, everything about the Cheese Grotto is selected to maintain cheese integrity and flavor. Providing proper ventilation, temperature control,  humidity, and light exposure can keep cheese fresh and ready to eat for weeks. 

  • For 7 to 10 days, you can store cheese in the Grotto under 70ºF on the counter or in a cellar, like the French do. 
  • For long-term storage of cheese, it is recommended to keep the Cheese Grotto at refrigeration temperatures (34ºF to 39º F, preferably 39ºF).

Beyond functionality, The Fresco truly looks charming on your countertop or on a shelf in your refrigerator and will start many conversations that all end the same way ... sharing cheese with people you love.

Essence of The Dowry.

People and places have always been the essence of my life. I love waking up in the morning and going about my day surrounded by beautiful things in my home that nod to the people I love and places that have transformed me.

Megan Hodges, Founder & CEO

I consider it a triumphant gesture of self actualization to create a home that represents me, with the goal of inviting people into that space, to share who I am on a deeper level, and in turn getting to know them better.

But the above is not easy.

From curating a place that feels special and specific to sharing it with others, it can be challenging, expensive, and time consuming.

The persistent trend.
