Philadelphia is known for its cheesesteaks, which is why Eagles fans can grab one whenever they head to Lincoln Financial Field for a game. They call it a tailgate because it's easily created out in the parking lot, but they hope you head inside for the real thing.

Cheese Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Cheese Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.
