Challerhocker, translated as “sitting in the cellar,” is produced by Walter Rass, the cheesemaker who makes Appenzeller. He washes the cheese in his own blend of wine, herbs, and spices, then ages it for at least 10 months. It is dense and savory, with notes of hay, leeks, brown butter, and a hint of caramel sweetness on the finish.

An ancient cheese from Alsace Lorraine and not the sandwich cheese from Wisconsin. It is a spicy and tangy washed rind with an emphatic aroma. Buttery yellow, rich, and creamy, with fruity notes.

A classic Dutch Gouda that is aged about 18 months. Made from cow’s milk, Old Amsterdam is a hard cheese that has butterscotch and caramel notes, and a satisfying crunch from the tyrosine crystals.
