Get Your Harmon's Passport to Cheese now until April 1st
Harmons has partnered with UEN to bring you Cheese Passport to go with Cheese Slices on TV. This is a wonderful program seen Monday nights on UEN-TV at 8pm. It is part travel, cheese making, history and science show. Will Stud is a master cheese maker and he travels around the world to meet fellow cheese makers and show us cheese making from around the world. He really brings the cheese and the region to life. After Cheese Slices, stay tuned for Cheese Cubed which features Utah scientists answering your questions about cheese.

Now this is the best part – your participation. Watch the show on Monday nights and then come into any Harmons and taste one of the cheeses that was featured and get your passport stamped (no purchase necessary). 10 episodes of Cheese Slices to watch and 10 cheeses to taste. After your passport is full you receive a special prize from Harmon's.

Thanks for a Fantastic Cheese Passport Program
A message from some happy viewers.

Thank you for the opportunity to participate in the Cheese passport program. Our family had a great time and we really enjoyed the cheese plate we were able to pick up at the end of our adventure. Every week was a new experience to taste cheeses from different parts of the world, prepared in different ways.

Our knowledge and understanding of world cheeses has been broadened greatly from the experience. I think we have all gained a greater appreciation for the wide scope of cheeses available to us locally here along the Wasatch Front. We loved the way the passport highlighted cheeses from the week's program to bring things full circle.

For example, on Monday, it was fun to watch Cheese Slices and the feature on Tellegio as we ate the sample from our cheese platter.

Nine Year Old Sterling was pretty excited about the cheese program and probably now knows more about cheese than anyone else in his school. He insisted on choosing the cheeses for the cheese platter and prepared the following recipe with Morbier cheese from the cheese plate and fresh apricots he picked earlier that morning.

His recipe is as follows

8 Fresh Ripe Apricots
4 teaspoons melted Butter or Olive Oil
4 Tablespoons Honey
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice, Lime Juice or Balsamic Vinegar
1/4 teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/8 lb of Morbier Cheese, Brie Cheese, Bleu Cheese or Goat Cheese as desired

Clean and slice apricots in halves, removing the pits.

Mix remaining ingredients in a bowl.

Heat Grill Box on medium heat until the cast iron is hot enough to sear grill marks on the apricots.

Baste fruit with the mixture then place flat side down on the grill for approximately 1-2 minutes.

Turn apricots over and baste a second time before placing a small amount of cheese to fill the center of the slices then grilling other side for 30 seconds- 1 minute.

Drizzle with additional lime juice, lemon juice or balsamic vinegar if desired.

Serve hot.

It tasted great!

Thank you again for providing this opportunity for us and other viewers of the program.

We recognize the work and organization required to make this all happen over such an extended period of time.
