More Details

This package includes:

  • 5 Cheeses from 5 different countries (each 3/4 lb.)
  • 1 box of Crackers
  • 1 jar of Jam

Cheese Selection Includes

  • Manchego – Fresh and subtle in flavor this is a young Manchego which is most commonly used as a snack cheese along with a fruity white wine and walnuts
  • Comte – The taste of this cheese is variable depending on the age and the season of the milk. It is typically described as salty, mild, and fruity with subtle hints of nutmeg. From Fromageries Marcel Petite
  • Parmigiano Reggiano – Made in the Emilia, Romagna region of Italy this partially skimmed cow’s milk, unpasteurized, hard; pressed, cooked curd; brushed, oiled rind cheese is aged from 30-36 months. The fat content is approximately 30%, the flavor is enormous, with a slightly salty finish. A true classic!
  • Jersey Girl – From Cooperstown Cheese Company is a raw cow’s milk Colby made with milk from Autumn Valley Farm in Worcester, NY is mild and creamy. Autumn Valley Farm is entirely grass fed so the earthiness of the cow’s milk is reflected in the deep yellow hue and rich hearty flavor of the cheese. Since the flavor of the cheese is so dependent on the availability of grass in the fields, the cheese is made in the spring and summer months so it is not always available all year long
  • Prima Dona – Made in the style of a gouda, but with a lower fat content – this cheese is made with part skimmed milk with a fat content of 45%. This cheese is perfect for cooking, grating, melting, slicing, it can be eaten with fruit with crackers or bread
