Italian Cheese Collection

  • Pecorino di Rocca: This Tuscan sheep’s milk cheese has a slightly grassy aroma, a sweet, nutty flavor, and a firm yet moist, crumbly texture. 12.35 oz.

Month 2: Delivered Dec. 9–19, 2014 (in time for Christmas)

U.K. Cheese Collection

  • Sharpham Rustic with Chive & Garlic: Crafted from the rich milk of Jersey cows who graze on wild garlic, this crumbly cheese has a bright, milky flavor laced with savory notes of spring garlic and chives. It's the perfect pairing for your favorite beers. 8 oz.
  • Pearls of Pure Goats’ Cheese: These award-winning “pearls” of fresh goat's milk cheese have a delicate, tangy flavor highlighted by a marinade of herbs, garlic and pink peppercorns. The creamy, spreadable cheese pairs nicely with light white wines. 4.6 oz.
  • Cave Aged Truckle: Named for its cylindrical "truckle" shape, this robust Dorset cheddar cheese combines a mellow, earthy aroma with rich, nutty flavor enhanced by deep buttery notes. The semi-hard cheese is the ultimate partner for a British stout. 10.5 oz.

Month 3: Delivered Jan. 6–16, 2015

French Cheese Collection

  • Cremeux de Citeaux: A buttery triple-crème cow’s milk cheese featuring a creamy, thick paste with a bouquet of toasted nuts, mushrooms and truffles. 7 oz.

Use & Care

Receiving Instructions

  • Refrigerate the cheese upon receipt. It is best stored in a vegetable bin or container away from the refrigerator fan. We recommend leaving the cheese in the packaging as it comes to room temperature, to prevent oxidation, which may affect the flavor.
  • Cut and set out only as much cheese as you plan to serve, returning the rest to the refrigerator.

Serving Instructions

  • To experience each cheese’s full flavor, serve at room temperature. For optimal flavor and texture, bring the cheeses to room temperature for approximately 1 hour prior to serving.
  • Leftover cheese is best re-wrapped in parchment or waxed paper. Plastic wrap is not recommended. It is best to consume the cheese within one to two weeks of receipt.
