Decadent Truffle Goat Cheese Pasta Recipe

Truffle Cheese 101

A truffle is a subterranean mushroom that can be found in the underground root systems of chestnut, oak, hazel, and beech trees. Truffles characteristically have an "umami" taste (earthy, meaty, and savory), so they are a natural pairing for cheese which also has its umami characteristics.  

Ground truffles or truffle oil are often mixed into the curds before the cheese is pressed into forms. Otherwise, truffle oil can be rubbed onto the exterior of the cheese during the formation of its rind or after the cheese has matured and developed its own flavors. These different ways of incorporating truffle into cheese contribute a distinct flavor profile to the final cheese you enjoy.

Very delicious. Cut the amount of lemon in half at least, it overtook and was overbearing.

Shipping Details


If you have purchased cheese hardware from our Grotto collection, it usually takes us 1 to 3 business days to ship your order, unless otherwise listed on the respective product page.

Cheese Orders

As the cheeses are a fresh product, we want to ensure the quickest transit time as possible, so your order arrives in the best possible condition.  Express shipping costs range from $25 - $55 depending on the package size, delivery window, location and carrier. We ship Mondays only each week, and orders must be placed by Thursday the week prior to be included in Monday's shipments.  If you purchased a cheese subscription with a set shipping schedule (Meet the Makers or any Gift Subscription), please refer to the respective product page for the fixed shipping schedule.

Please note: cheese ships from our cheese warehouse and hardware ships from our hardware warehouse. If you are purchasing both hardware and cheese, there will be a shipping charge for the cheese portion of your order.

International Orders

We are sorry, but we aren't legally allowed to ship cheese across the US border!  We can, however, ship our hardware from our Grotto collection worldwide.  Please note that the shipping costs options you see at checkout do not include customs, duties, and taxes which will be billed to you upon reaching the border, and will be an additional expense.  Those costs vary from country to country, but we recommend calculating at an additional 20% charge. If you refuse the package due to these additional fees and the hardware is returned to us, we will be able to issue a refund minus the outbound and return shipping costs.
