December Specials 2018
Cheesy gifts abound here at Surdyk’s Cheese Shop. 3, 6, or 12 month cheese of the month subscriptions come in as number one on our list, but a pretty little bag with 3 cheeses, a bottle of wine, and biscuits is easy to put together when you need a quick host/hostess gift, or a last minute tuck under the tree. Stocking stuffer faves include an Ames honeycomb, single origin chocolate bars, truffle salt, EVOO, B&W coffee beans, and so much more!
Sale: $17.99 /lb (Regular: $21.99)
Produced during the alpage season, typically from mid-May through mid-October, when local herds climb the Swiss mountain pastures in search of uncultivated alpine forage. This summer milk becomes a distillation of the herbaceous pastures, with notes of grass, sweet fruit, and chocolate. A perfect holiday cheese that is only available during wintertime.
Sale: $15.99 /lb (Regular 19.99)
This is a luscious triple-crème style cheese from 3rd generation cheesemaker Rouzaire. It is creamy and decadently rich. Pair with Champagne or other sparkling wines.
Hook's 10 Year Cheddar
Sale: $25.99/lb (Regular: 30.99)
Classic Wisconsin aged sharp cheddar done right by Tony Hook. This cheese is very rich and creamy with great complexity and a less bitter flavor than you might expect.
Sale: $25.99 each (Regular: 29.99)
A treasure: the last farmhouse raw-milk Lancashire in the world. Its defining features are its succulent-yet-crumbly texture (referred to by the Kirkham family as a ‘buttery crumble’) and its bright, layered flavor.
Epoisses de Bourgogne
Sale: $16.99 /lb (Regular 18.99)
This classic French “stinky cheese” is one of our finest. Washing the rind with Marc de Bourgogne creates an orange color and the bold aroma. When ripe, the texture inside will be smooth and runny, accompanied by a full flavor. Enjoy with Sauternes.
Colston Bassett Stilton
Sale: $19.99 /lb (Regular 26.99)
Colston Bassett dairy is our favorite producer of this classic English blue cheese produced in Nottinghamshire. Made from pasteurized whole milk collected from four farms in the same village, this Stilton is rich and creamy, with a spicy finish. A regal treat any time of year.
