About Hard Cheese Sampler

Hard cheeses run the gamut from intense to subtle, crumbly to smooth. They are always a lovely addition to a cheese board but this hard cheese sampler gives you an exclusive selection. Really wonderful when paired with nuts, high quality crackers, and fruit to balance everything out or to use for cooking - perfect for classic dishes like pasta, polenta, risotto o au gratin recipes.

Set includes 4 cheeses:

Tarentaise is a rare organic cheese made from raw cow's milk. The wonderfully nutty earthy flavor is hard yet supple. Made in copper vats, the cultures and techniques hail straight from the Alps, while the Vermont landscape lends itself to its sublime flavor.

Bianco Sardo is a sheep's milk cheese similar in texture to Parmigiano Reggiano or Pecorino Romano, but its flavor is all its own. The tanginess is tempered with notes of fresh grass and it is decidedly less salty than parmigiano. This formaggio is crumbly and dry while also being fatty and creamy. A beautifully oily cheese.

Gouda XO is big on flavor and aroma. Aged five years, this bright orange cheese from Beemster is both gorgeous and delicious. With sweet notes of butterscotch and caramel and heady undertones of whiskey and caramel, it really packs a punch. The hard, yet buttery texture is studded with crunchy protein crystals throughout.

A truly artisan raw milk cheese, this Manchego comes from Castilla La Mancha in Spain. A one-year old sheep's milk with a smooth, oily, nutty, and fruity flavor, it is made by a third generation cheese producer in the Cuenca region. Always flavorful and delicious.

Substitution Note: if a cheese is out of stock we will substitute for something of equal value and size that we feel matches the assortment's theme.
