We are two cheese lovers from different parts of the world (Sweden and New Zealand) living Vancouver, BC, and we started Lavish Cheese with the aim of bringing the best cheese tools and accessories to Canada and the United States.
Lavish Cheese online store stocks the most useful cheese slicers, cheese knives, cheese serving tools, and cheese eating utensils, and every single product has either been designed by us, or is quality tested by us. Our time is spent searching for the products from all over the world, then refining the designs to ensure quality and suitability for the North American market.
Everyone seems to have a story about the amazing cheese plane style slicer they used while at an Airbnb in Berlin, and we want to make sure these great products are available at home.
LAVISH BEGINNINGS - MISSION
In the beginning, our store, and the ideas for the Lavish Cheese line of products, grew from the frustration of not being able to find the same style cheese slicers that were available in Europe.
After spending a lot of time in the kitchen, certain cheese situations kept coming up - too thick and uneven cheese slices on a grilled cheese sandwich, no easy way to shave hard cheeses, messy cheeseboards, and crumbling blocks of cheddar when trying to cut with a thick blade knife. Since the popularity of cheese and artisan food products is growing in North America, it seemed obvious that lots of people were having similar frustrations!
Incredibly, many European cheese tools are not common in kitchens here, and it is difficult to find any quality, functional cheese cutting and serving tools. Between knowing that better cheese tools existed in other parts of the world, and wanting better cheese experiences, we decided to create Lavish Cheese.
LAVISH DEVELOPMENTS - ETHICS
We are constantly testing new products, and selecting our favorite cheese knives, cheese slicers, and cheese serving tools for the store. Lavish Cheese will continue to grow our product lines as we find and design ever more solutions to your cheese problems. In Fall of 2020, we launched a line of hand painted cheese tools which are available in certain retailers as well as the online store, and we hope to continue growing with the cheese and artisan food industry.
Through our love for cheese, we are involved in the local and global cheese scene, and also offer a blog to keep you up to date with cheese news as well as product reviews and recipes. We love to swap information and products with cheese mongers and cheese makers, and relish all of the advice and feedback we receive from our industry partners.
LAVISH LEGACY - VALUES
We run our company from beautiful British Columbia, Canada, and strive to maintain an environmentally friendly and socially responsible supply chain by vetting manufacturers, using eco-packaging solutions, sourcing sustainably harvested wood, and manufacturing with non-toxic and environmentally friendly means whenever possible.
We believe in the products we sell on Lavish Cheese, and will stand behind the quality of the cheese tools that we produce. If you receive a product from us that does not meet your expectation, we will provide a replacement or a refund. Quality control is an integral part of our business model, and we only want the best products to carry the Lavish Cheese brand.
