Stravecchio Oro del Tempo is a superior, 24-month aged Grana Padano produced by Agriform near Venice. This masterpiece compares beautifully with its better-known cousin Parmigiano Reggiano. The flavor of Stravecchio is intense and complex, with fruity overtones that evoke pineapple or strawberry, depending on the season.

Agriform tests the quality of each wheel of Stravecchio every week until the twentieth month of aging. The end result of this rigorous testing process is that only the cheeses that deserve to become prime Grana Padano Stravecchio are stamped with the certificate of origin and guarantee.

This cheese is our best-selling Pecorino Toscano from Italy, but aged for an additional three to four months by the cheese masters at Il Forteto in Tuscany. Pecorino Toscano Stagionato DOP is created from locally collected sheep's milk during September and June. As it ages, the cheese loses its milky white color and takes on a hay-colored, ivory hue. The sweet, silken texture of the original cheese slowly gives way to a sharp, zesty flavor with a brittle texture. Pecorino Toscano Stagionato DOP is perfect for chunking into romaine and dandelion green salads, or rolled in extra virgin olive oil and served as part of an antipasto tray.Made from pasteurized sheep's milk.Photo depicts whole 4 lb. form of cheese.We cut and wrap this item by hand.Please see item 4240 if you would like to purchase the whole form.
Eighteen-pound logs of Smoked Gouda are produced in Holland in some of the world's most modern, computerized dairy plants, yet the cheese is still smoked in ancient brick ovens over smoldering hickory chip embers. Available in two flavors: Jalapeno and Fine Herb and Garlic. This cylindrically shaped cheese is perfect for impromptu picnics, party platters or midnight snacks. Note: the brown, smoky rind is not only edible, it's the best part of the cheese!Made from pasteurized cow's milk.Photo depicts whole 6 lb. form of cheese.We cut and wrap this item by hand.

The secret to Point Reyes Original BlueTM lies in its unique combination of three ingredients. First, grade A unpasteurized milk is taken from a closed herd of Holstein cows that graze on the green pastured hills overlooking Tomales Bay, California. Next, the coastal fog and salty Pacific breezes common to Point Reyes, California conspire in lending the cheese a unique character. Finally, time influences the recipe too. Original BlueTM is made within hours of milking, and then ages for a minimum of six months. The result? A creamier style, full-flavored blue cheese with definite hints of lemongrass and sea salt. For those of us who have fallen in love with Maytag Blue, sample Point Reyes Original BlueTM for a familiar yet distinctly different experience!Made from unpasteurized cow's milk.Gluten-Free.Photo depicts whole 6 lb form of cheese.We cut and wrap this item by hand.
Toma Piedmontese dates back to Roman times, but did not become identified by its name until the 11th century. The name appears to have come from the old French word "tumer," meaning to fall or to turn. To us, Toma means the cheese is a product of several herds from the same region and implies it is made by a cheese making specialist rather than a farmer with a surplus of milk who might not be adept at cheese making. Like the Tommes of Savoie, each Alpine Valley produces its own distinctive version of Toma. Made in the Aosta Valley and Piedmont, they strain the unpasteurized milk and then rennet is added. The curds are broken up and drained, then placed in molds. They are often dried for a couple of days under a layer of mountain grasses to give them additional flavor. Toma is cheese surface ripened, meaning it ripens from the rind inward. This simple mountain cheese has a thin rind with a custard-like interior with small pores and a gentle sweet-sour nature. Toma is a perfect table cheese but can also be used for cooking. It begs to be paired with a big Piedmont red.

A sheep's milk version of the lovely Le Wavreumont, Le Brebis de Wavreumont is an organic cheese with a smooth, natural rind. Once you cut into the cheese, the paste is semi-firm and easily sliceable, with a beautiful off-white color. Le Brebis de Wavreumont is cheese of the monastic tradition of making simple, but exceptional cheese in the abbeys for the monks to supplement a meat-free diet. Aged for four weeks, its texture is smooth and its taste is rich with the lemony notes of sheep's milk. The color of its crust results from the great deal of care that is given to it and to the specific ambiance of the ageing cellars. This is a lovely cheese to pair with an equally rich and full flavored Belgian abbey ale.Made from pasteurized sheep's milk.Photo depicts whole 5 lb. form of cheese.We cut and wrap this item by hand.
Derby is a yellow cheese with a firm texture, (similar to that of Cheddar) which is now less well-known than its colorful relative, Sage Derby. Mass-production of this product has led to the deterioration of the quality of most Sage Derbies, but our Sage Derby is still the real thing. The coloring is done using spinach juice like most Sage Derbies, but this dairy mixes actual chopped sage leaves into the cheese curd rather than mixing sage powder into the milk like most companies do. This results in a fresher sage flavor, and it is this flavor that lends Sage Derby its charm.Made from pasteurized cow's milk.Photo depicts whole 9 lb. form of cheese.We cut and wrap this item by hand.
