CHEESE SHOP DEALS OF THE WEEK
Grand Cru Surchoix
Grand Cru Surchoix is an Alpine-style, washed-rind, raw cow's milk cheese The name "Surchoix" means that this batch of cheese is a cut above the rest. Surchoix wheels are aged for at least 9 months, resulting in this luscious cheese with a creamy paste and crunchy crystals. Its flavor is buttery with a meaty richness and an extraordinary nutty, mushroomy flavor. Award-winning in both US and international competitions, Grand Cru Surchoix is superb when paired with a zinfandel or jammy red.
As you can probably guess, butterkäse comes from Germany, and means "butter cheese." Most Americans would pronounce it "butter case," but it's pronounced more like "booter-keh-zuh."Butterkäse is traditionally made near the Swiss border in Germany as well as in Austria, where it is equally beloved for its creamy texture and buttery taste. This is a smoked version of the classic, and is perfect for mac & cheese!
Ilchester Applewood Smoked Cheddar
A real English treasure. Applewood Smoked Cheddar is a traditional farmhouse Cheddar with a delicate smoky flavor and a lovely, smooth texture-all finished with a dusting of paprika for good measure. This cheese is perfect for any cheeseboard with crackers, on a burger or grated over your favorite pasta. The options are endless. It's a cheese that is ideally used when entertaining because of its flexibility as an addition to many dishes.
