4 Alarm Cheddar

Cow Milk
Features: Creamy, Rich, Sweet

If spice is your style, it’s worth giving this fiery cheddar from Milton Creamery a try. Chipotle, chili, jalapeno and ghost peppers are blended into a young cheddar, which serves as a sweet and creamy base for an intensely hot, richly spiced burst of flavor. Perfect for those who love a bit of heat but don’t want to sacrifice the flavor of the peppers! Try it melted on a burger or mixed into chili for a hearty and warming meal, or slice it with salami and apples.

Appenzeller

Cow Milk
Raw
Features: Buttery, Mild, Smooth

Appenzeller cheese from Switzerland is a 700-year-old cow’s milk cheese, distinct for its straw color and nutty flavor, each dairy using a unique herbal brine. From France, Fromager d’Affinois is a creamy brie-style cheese with a fresh pea-pod taste, ideal with crackers. Melkbus raw milk Gouda, especially the truffle-infused Melkbus 149, is a buttery Dutch cheese. Ossau-Iraty, an ancient AOC sheep’s milk cheese from the French Pyrenees, is renowned for its deep, buttery flavor.

Armenian String Cheese

Cow Milk

In Armenia, traditional string cheese includes black cumin (scientific name Nigella Sativa) and a Middle Eastern spice known as mahleb, and it comes in the form of an endless loop. The cheese forms strings because of the way it is pulled during processing. Other cheeses are only cut and pressed, not pulled, and don’t develop strings.

Asiago with Rosemary

Cow Milk
Features: Nutty, Rich

Heralded as the ‘dew of the sea’ Rosmarinus officinalis provides the perfect savory high note for this rich, nutty and fruity taste sensation. A gold-medal winner of the 2008 World Championship Cheese Contest, this extraordinary delight wears its laurels as lightly as the perfect balance of hand-rubbed rosemary and Italian olive oil.

Balarina

Goat Milk
Features: Aged, Nutty

This artisan cheese has been aged for over four years in our select Dutch aging rooms. It has a stunning complex flavor. It is nutty with flavors of caramel. This cheese adds a great touch when grated over spinach salad, pizza or pasta. It also makes fabulous risotto and omelets.

Barber’s Vintage Cheddar 1833

Cow Milk
Features: Creamy, Rich, Sweet

We have been making cheese on our farm in Ditcheat, Somerset for six generations. Made using traditional starter cultures, rich milk from our cows, and always matured for at least 24 months, Barber’s 1833 Vintage Reserve Cheddar is the culmination of all our achievements. A deliciously creamy cheese with both savory and naturally sweet notes. Only the very best leaves with the 1833 stamp.

Beemster Goat Gouda

Goat Milk
Features: Aged, Smooth, Soft

The unique blue sea clay soil of the Beemster polder contains special mineral and therefore special grasses which makes the fat softer and sweeter than other milk in the Netherlands. Aged for 4 months, it’s smooth and sweet with a wonderful clean finish. Another great Dutch Gouda.

Beemster Smoked Gouda

Cow Milk
Features: Creamy, Mild, Soft

Made in the Netherlands, this young Beemster is naturally slow-smoked over hickory wood in the USA to create this exceptional take on smoked Gouda. It’s mild and creamy, with a soft texture and toasty smokiness reminiscent of campfires and caramelized marshmallows. Great with a Zinfandel or Chianti!

Beemster Wild Garlic Gouda

Cow Milk
Features: Creamy

Dutch cheesemaker, Beemster, makes this young cow’s milk Gouda, infused with wild garlic. A garlicky, creamy cheese from the Netherlands.

Beemster XO

Cow Milk
Features: Creamy, Smooth, Sweet

Beemster X-O-, aged for 26 months, is Beemster’s oldest cheese. Its unique milk enables a wide flavor range in a shorter aging time, maintaining a smooth, creamy taste, unlike longer-aged cheeses that become crumbly and granular. Perfectly paired with port wines and sweet whites like Riesling, X-O- also serves as a great Parmesan alternative for pastas.

BellaVitano Gold

Cow Milk
Features: Creamy, Smooth

Inspired by a traditional Italian farmstead cheese, Bella Vitano Gold combines the fruity flavor of a premium Parmesan with the creamy smoothness of fine Cheddar. It won a Gold Medal at the 2008 World Cheese Awards.

Blue Jay

Blues
Features: Buttery, Creamy, Strong

Made using a recipe in which five ten-gallon cans of cream are added to each vat, The Blue Jay is rich in texture with strong buttery notes. We then crush juniper berries to release their perfume and infuse them throughout to complement the Blue strain’s unique botanical essence. The result is a bold, yet utterly creamy Blue with a delicately piney bouquet that blooms in your mouth.

Blueberry Stilton

Cow Milk
Features: Mild, Sharp, Soft

Traditionally-made White Stilton is blended with soft blueberries for a visually striking dessert cheese. The sharp fruit punctuates the mild cheese to create a delicate flavor and fresh aroma Made by Long Clawson in England. Serve with a medium white wine or Tawny Port.

Boerenkaas

Cow Milk
Features: Smooth, Sweet

Boerenkaas is made in Holland on small family farms from May until October while the herd is in the fields eating fresh grass. Boerenkaas or Farmers Gouda is sweet and smooth, with a natural depth of flavour due to it’s raw milk nature. That depth is what sets it apart from its mass-produced counterparts.

Brick Cheese Windmer

Cow Milk
Features: Firm

What is real Brick cheese anyway? Brick is an American original. It was invented in 1877 by John Jossi, a Swiss-born American cheese maker. As Mr. Jossi created it, Brick cheese is firmly in the tradition of the great washed rind cheeses of Europe. Its flavor is enhanced during ripping of the bacterium linens, the same pleasantly pungent bacterial action that contributes to the flavor of the classic French cheeses like Pont I’Eveque, St. Nectaire, Reblochon and Livarot. Real Brick has a heady aroma and modestly full flavor that will almost assuredly keep Brick from ever being the most popular cheese in town.

Brun-uusto

Cow Milk
Features: Sweet

Brun-uusto is the newest cheese from Brunkow Cheese of Wisconsin. The expert Wisconsin cheesemakers at Brunkow have translated Brun-uusto into an authentic version of Juustalepia, a specialty cheese with Finnish and Swedish origins. The name Juustalepia (HOOstah-lee-pah) is Finnish, and translates as ‘bread cheese’ an apt description since Brun-uusto’s appearance and aroma is similar to toasted bread. Its characteristic sweet caramel crust is produced through a slow baking process. Brun-uusto’s unique flavor is most pronounced when served warm. It can be heated in the oven, microwaved or grilled.

Bucherolle

Goat Milk

Goat cheese and Provence: it is hard to know where to even start describing this magic relationship. Goat cheese is not only seen on every cheese platter at every meal it is seen in salads, sandwiches (toasted or not), pastas and goat cheese may join tomatoes and herbes de Provence to create an energizing omelette. Yes, the rind of the Bucherolle is edible. But there is not étiquette: some never eat the rind, while for others the rind is an essential part of the cheese.

Burrata

Cow Milk
Features: Buttery, Creamy

What do you get when you combine ricotta and mozzarella? As it turns out, you get burrata: a round ball of fresh cow’s milk cheese stretched like mozzarella into a round dumpling shape, then filled with torn mozzarella shreds and cream. The result is a self-contained pocket of creamy, buttery curds that spill out like a lava cake when split open. The perfect cheese to combine with garden-ripe tomatoes and crusty bread!

Cambozola

Blues
Features: Rich

A German made, triple-cream, Cambozola is distinctive cheese with delicate blue veining, but is neither blue nor brie. The secret to this cheese’s popularity lies in the rich Bavarian milk used in its production, which lends Cambozola an extraordinary flavor and velvety feel. Cambozola’s name ties this cheese to the history of the Allgäu region: in 300 A.C. there was a settlement in Bavaria called Cambodunum where the art of cheese-making flourished. Thus Cambozola.
