The Classics - $60 

The word classic is defined as: judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality and outstanding of its kind. Early cheese traditions can still be seen in some of the classic old-world cheeses available today. Taste five of the most iconic cheese styles from around the world that started it all. All cheeses arrive in a beautiful wooden box with crackers for a globetrotting experience wherever you are. 

 

Italian Treat - $70 

As a nod to Cheesemonger Rich Rogers’ ancestor’s homeland, this box features two classic Italian cheeses: Parmigiano-Reggiano and Pecorino Romano. Scardello’s Parmigiano-Reggiano is hand made by Gianluca Bonati of Fulvi. Gianluca makes all of his wheels from an organically farmed herd and makes less than half the amount of Parmigiano-Reggiano than typical producers. Despite its name, most Pecorino Romano is made outside of the Roman countryside. Fulvi is one of the only operations still making this classic cheese about 20 miles north of Rome. Paired with handmade Italian style salami, crackers and high quality extra virgin olive oil, this box will transport you straight to the boot itself! 

 

Best of Texas - $80 

Everything’s bigger in Texas, including the variety and flavors of our local cheese! The Best of Texas box highlights our favorite Texas made products: three pieces of handmade cheese paired with locally made pickles and jam. Just try to not eat the whole jar in one sitting! This box makes the perfect welcome for your out-of-town guests or a reminder of what you love about the Lone Star State. 

 

The gift boxes can be purchased in store, over the phone or at scardellocheese.com.Shipping is available on all gift boxes.

JDRF, the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes (T1D) research, hosted its annual Cliff Harris JDRF Reunion Golf Classic at Dallas Athletic Club Monday, June 18, 2018. This year’s tournament commemorated Super Bowl XIII, where the Dallas Cowboys and the Pittsburgh Steelers battled at the Orange Bowl in Miami on January 21, 1979. In honor of this, JDRF arranged for Joe Greene, the Steelers’ defensive tackle in Super Bowl XIII and fellow Texas native, to attend the tournament. Over the course of Greene’s 13-year career, all of which was played with the Steelers, Greene was voted to 10 Pro Bowls and named the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year in both 1972 and 1974. 

 

This year’s tournament ended the day full of friendly competition with lively clubhouse festivities, including a Q&A with Cliff Harrisand Joe Greene, a silent and live auction and an awards ceremony. The tournament raised more than $330,000 in support of JDRF’s mission to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes.  

O.J. “Buddy” Harris, Cliff Harris’ father, was diagnosed with T1D at age 24. Because of this disease, Buddy was unable to conquer his dream of being a jet test pilot but he was able to cheer Cliff on in his first Super Bowl with the Dallas Cowboys. Shortly thereafter, diabetes took his vision, and he was unable to watch Cliff go on to play in another four Super Bowls. Bud is the reason Cliff is dedicated to JDRF’s mission, and it is passionate volunteers like Cliff who have helped JDRF achieve important milestones. Advances in type 1 diabetes research (T1D) are helping people live longer and with fewer complications.

 

This year’s tournament was a reunion celebration for many of the Super Bowl competitors and other NFL greats. Former NFL stars in attendance included: Donny Anderson,Roger Staubach, DD Lewis, Mel Renfro, Mike Renfro, Rayfield Wright, Lyle Blackwood, Norm Bulaich, Gary Hammond, Chad Hennings, Preston Pearson, Kurt Petersen andEverson Walls.Several other local figures joined in the fun, including: former wide receiver for the Ouachita Baptist Tigers and Ouachita Baptist Athletics Hall of Famer Doug Freeze, , former NBA Phoenix Suns Forward Ira Terrell,Actor Burton ‘Bubba’ Gilliam, former Texas Rangers pitcher Don Stanhouse, CBS Sports Analyst and former college coach, Houston Nutt, former Texas Rangers and Chicago Cubs player, Jose Guzman, andOuachita Baptist University head basketball coach and former NBA player, Dennis Nutt. Title Sponsors included; Rich Dealy, executive vice president and chief financial officer of Pioneer Natural Resources; Derek McCoy, vice president, general manager North Texas market; and Ish Arebalos, public affairs and communications relations for Coca-Cola Southwest Beverages.
