This semi-soft sheep's milk cheese is handmade in the French Pyrenees. The Pyrenees Mountain range, a natural border that divides France and Spain, is populated by the Basques, a people who have their own customs and language. Although the Basques live on both sides of the border, they produce this cheese on the French side. Amidst the breathtaking, rolling mountains of the Pyrenees, vast pastures stretch as far as the eye can see, providing fertile grazing for milk-producing sheep. P'tit Basque, made from pure sheep's milk, has a slightly oily texture and an earthy, nutty flavor. It comes to us in a whole, uncut cylinder, offering a beautiful presentation as well as a lovely taste.Made from pasteurized sheep's milk.Photo depicts whole 1.25 pound form of cheese.

igourmet Green Pesto Gouda - Pound Cut (15.5 ounce)
This cheese is every bit as good as it sounds! Basiron is a creamy-tasting, gouda-style Dutch cheese jazzed up with pesto. Perfectly balanced and extremely addictive, this glitzy cheese "shows off" for Christmas, St. Patrick's Day, or almost any occasion. Its ingredients include pasteurized cow's milk, vegetarian rennet, and pesto (basil and garlic). It has 50% fat in dry matter and is aged approximately 5-6 weeks for a firm, yet youthful texture. The Veldhuyzen family in Holland, whose cheese making tradition dates back to the 1800s, makes a variety of innovative cheeses. Although Basiron is a show stopper on the cheese board, its festive color is always ready to complement a tray of vegetables or equally colorful cheeses such as red-waxed gouda or edam. For a bright and flavorful dish with a twist of flavors, shred Basiron over gnocchi or pasta smothered in your favorite pasta sauce.Made from pasteurized cow's milk.

The Tuscan cheese masters at Il Forteto have produced this nuanced Pecorino, aged with honey and hay. This cheese was inspired from a tradition of conserving cheese under hay. The long maturation brings the right combination of the flavor of hay, the delicate taste of honey, and the strong and pronounced taste of sheep milk cheese.

igourmet Irish Green Wax Mature Cheddar (7.5 ounce)
Our Green Waxed Cheddar is produced by Tuxford and Tebbutt from pure Irish milk. The milk for this "bitey" cheddar is taken from cows grazing in southeast Ireland, an area traditionally known as "The Garden of Ireland". Here, the winds blow in from the Atlantic, depositing rain throughout the year, providing the perfect growing conditions for lush grazing. This environment produces rich, creamy milk that is perfect for cheese making. Our Irish Green Wax Cheddar is aged for a minimum of 12 months, but may be aged longer, because it is only when that distinctive, strong Irish cheddar flavor is ripe that Tuxford and Tebbutt's master grader will deem the cheese ready for sale. The cheddar is then cut into blocks and covered in green wax, giving the cheese a distinctive Irish appearance.Made from pasteurized cow's milk.Photo depicts whole 5 lb. form of cheese.We cut and wrap this item by hand.
