for snacking, celebrating, cooking, and gift giving – from simple kitchen essentials, to rare finds from around the globe. Allow us to share new ways to enjoy familiar favorites or introduce you to something new and special.
Tomme Chevre Aydius: France
Traditionally we see sheep’s milk cheeses coming from the Pyrenees, but these little raw milk wheels are made of all goat! The tommes get washed for 3-6 months during aging, creating their creamy yet complex flavor and semi firm texture. Don’t be alarmed by a bit of stink from the rind because inside you will be please with its grassy, sweet, and fruity flavors. Pair with something sweet, juicy, or tart!
Montgomery’s Cheddar Somerset: England
An English, un-pasteurized cloth bound cheddar, matured over 12 months. Exceptionally complex flavors without being overpowering. There is no better Cheddar. Don’t be alarmed to find blue veining in this cheese, it is quite normal. Enjoy!
Valdeón: Léon, Spain
This mixed milk blue can often be confused with the famous Spanish Cabrales, which is a much more assertive blue. The Valdeón has its own beautiful signature wrapping of sycamore leaves and a moist, marbled, blue-veined interior. Made with a blend of cow and goat’s milk, the Valdeón has a mellow sweetness with earthy undertones. It truly is a beauty on any cheese plate!
