CHEESE SHOP DEALS OF THE WEEK
Klare Melk Truffle Raw Milk Gouda
This specialty Gouda has a golden interior dotted with real black truffle pieces. The cheese itself is mild enough to allow the flavor of the truffles to really shine. This Gouda shreds and melts easily, making it an easy way to add the indulgent flavor of truffles to your favorite recipes! Try this wine with a medium-bodied wine with some tannins, such a Cabernet Franc or Sangiovese, as the wine should stand up to the truffles, but not overwhelm their flavor.
Wensleydale Creamery Royal Velvet
Royal Velvet is Wensleydale Creamery's take on Huntsman cheese. Huntsman is a concoction of two classic kinds of cheese produced in the English countryside. Double Gloucester is a firm, mellow and tangy cheese made only from the milk of Gloucester cows in southwestern England while Stilton Blue cheese is a blue-veined, strong, smooth and creamy cheese with a distinctive flavor profile. Stilton is sandwiched between layers of satiny Double Gloucester, resulting in a powerful flavor combination of the two. It is a difficult cheese to cook with, but visually stunning on a cheese platter. Each cheese could have its own wine pairing, but together they go well with ales and beers.
Ile de France Double Crème Brie
Ile de France Double Crème Brie is a soft cheese with a white rind, an extra creamy texture and a buttery flavor with hints of hazelnut and mushrooms. Ile de France Brie was first brought into the United States in 1936 aboard the famed ''Ile de France'' - the first refrigerated ocean liner. Brie is most flavorful when served at room temperature. Pairs well with a Cabernet Sauvignon or a Pinot Noir.
