Giant Eagle's spread of more than mild to pungent cheeses amasses more than 400 varieties of aromatic curds from around the world. Parmigiano reggiano ($18.99/lb.) complements rustic tomato sauce and earthy olive oil with firm bites that break into chunks for salty hors d'oeuvres. Cotswold cheese combines mellow double Gloucester with onion and chives ($12.99/lb.), a savory mix that melts into a smooth, hearty sauce when heated on stovetops or placed in a tanning booth. Discerning palates gravitate toward Market District red-wax gouda ($8.99/lb.), a silky cheese whose mild taste artfully underscores the delicate flavors of white wines and fruity reds. A cheese glossary helps shoppers navigate the aisles, paring hard or soft wedges with a fondue recipe or ripened sweater. Additionally, Giant Eagle’s low-fat cheeses deliver fortifying doses of calcium while cutting down on calorie content.
