Originally created to be the French version of Dutch Edam, Mimolette has distinctly become its own cheese. It is shaped like a cannonball but resembles a cantaloupe when opened, showing its deep burnt orange paste. Mimolette is very dense with a sweet and nutty taste. A perfect Halloween cheese!
Sale: $22.99 /lb (Regular 18.99)
Challerhocker, translated as “sitting in the cellar,” is produced by Walter Rass, the cheesemaker who also 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, and brown butter, with a hint of caramel sweetness on the finish.
Old Amsterdam Gouda
Sale: $13.99/lb (Regular: 17.99)
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.
Moliterno al Tartufo
Sale: $21.99 each (Regular: 29.00)
From the Italian island of Sardinia comes this raw sheep's milk cheese with black truffles. Unlike most truffle cheeses, the truffle paste is infused only after Moliterno is carefully aged and has developed its own character. Once cut, the dark paste oozes out of the crevices of the cheese like black gold. Both delicious and intriguing visually, this is by far our favorite truffle cheese.
Sale: $19.99 /lb (Regular 24.99)
Rocchetta is a lovely and creamy Robiola from Piedmont, Italy. Made from cow, goat, and sheep’s milk, Rocchetta is dense, semi-soft, and smooth in texture, with a pleasant tanginess. A very appealing, approachable cheese that pairs well with many lighter red wines.
Sale: $18.99 /lb (Regular 19.99)
Created by 4th generation cheese maker Chris Roelli, this hand-crafted, cellar aged cheese has the earthy characteristics of traditional English cheddars, with a subtle hint of blue cheese. It is made from pasteurized cow’s milk and is truly its own unique style of cheese.
