The Original Bamboo server is made of resilient and sustainable bamboo ply. The material combines the best of traditional and innovative specialty cheese storage practices. The bamboo behaves like wood, cultivating a healthy micro-climate for the ripening cheese. It is more architecturally-sound than the solid wood panels used in traditional cheese caves. The bamboo ply is as handsome as it is long-lasting, and can be used as a shelf in the Grotto, or for serving cheese at dinner.

Though Cheese Grotto’s Jessica Sennett is an expert at bringing out cheese’s best flavors, she is not an expert in food safety and she does not offer any opinion about food safety. New York Department of Health regulations requires restaurants to store cheese at a temperature below 45 degrees F, except for up to two hours during preparation for food service. Nothing in Cheese Grotto’s materials, including statements regarding the shelf life of cheese, is intended to (and the materials should not be interpreted to) conflict with food safety regulations and recommendations.
