About Creamy Cheese Sampler

This bold cheese board gift set explores the buttery, supple textures and differing flavors beneath bloomy rinds. Included on this soft cheese board are Nettle Meadow Kunik Petite, Camembert, Perail de Brebis, and Cremeux de Citeaux.

Kunik is a divine cheese hails from a small farm in the Adirondacks. A unique mix of goat's milk enriched with Jersey cow cream (famously high in milk fat), Kunik is the very definition of artisanal cheese. The creamy texture gives way to a flavor richer than Brie, but more subtle than a chevre.

Rodolphe Le Meunier, the award-winning French cheesemonger, crafts some of the most heavenly cheese imaginable and his Camembert is no exception. One of the creamiest cheeses around, Camembert is a welcome addition to any cheese board. Its light, sweet flavor is balanced with hints of mushroom from its bloomy rind.

A cheese that contains layers of flavor, Perail de Brebis hails from the Midi Pyrenees region of France. The soft-ripened sheep's milk cheese has a rich, dense texture. When savoring this cheese, you first encounter a delicate sweet flavor which yields to a more bold aroma with notes of hay. Perfect for spreading over crackers, Perail softens at room temperature.

This wouldn't be a true creamy sampler without the addition of Cremeux de Citeaux. A full-bodied triple cream cheese, the rich, smooth flavor is without equal. The snow-white rind encircles a bold, milk flavor with hints of mushroom and a and a sumptuous texture that feels like thick clotted cream. Another one of Le Meaunier greatest hits.
