Award-Winning Cow's Milk Brie, 5oz
Highlighting the best of American artisan brie-styles, we'll select what is seasonally available and tasting its best. You'll be receiving a pasteurized, bloomy-rind cow milk cheese with notes of white button mushrooms, grass-fed butter, crème fraiche, cauliflower, and baked bread. This cheese category is a crowd-pleaser and pairs wonderfully with Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Riesling, and Sparkling Brut.
Award-Winning Cow's Milk Natural Rind, 6oz
One of our favorite table cheeses, a natural rind style has an edible, ruddy rind with notes of buttermilk, brown butter, cured meat, nuts, and brown mushroom. Semi-firm and aged a minimum of two months, we'll hand select what is seasonally available and tasting its best. Pairs beautifully with a Chardonnay or Pinot Noir.
Award-Winning Cow's Milk Clothbound Cheddar, 6oz
Clothbound cheddars have become a distinguished American cheese category. Unlike their block cheddar counterparts that are sealed in wax or plastic, the milled curd is carefully wrapped in cheesecloth and then brushed with butter. Clothbound cheddars boasts flavors of bright pineapple and lemon curd, roasted nuts, caramel, and olives with a minerality closer to the rind. We'll select the best tasting wheel we have for this gift set. Pair with a light to medium-bodied red with low tannins, such as Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Franc or Syrah.
Milène Jardine 70% Dark Chocolate
New York Times featured chocolatier Milène Jardine makes a dark chocolate bar rich in cocoa butter resulting a smooth, full-bodied chocolate that pairs excellently with cheese. Made with fruity Peruvian beans and toasty notes from Ecuador’s Cacao Arriba the blend leaves you with a balanced taste of dried fruit and sweet spices. Pair with a delicate Bordeaux like Chateau Viaud-Laland, Lalande de Pomerol (2014) and the Sharon Creek Brie. The rich and creamy texture of the cheese paired with the dark chocolate, and long finish of the Bordeaux make an indulgent combination.
Le Bon Magot Tomato and White Sultana Chutney
With the sweet fruitiness of tomato married to piquant Kashmiri chilies in this versatile chattni, this chutney is perfect for pairing with charcuterie and cheeses. Le Bon Magot's culinary flavors are inspired by their heritage and experiences in Africa, Middle East and South Asia. Their preserves are developed from heirloom recipes using natural ingredients, high-quality and seasonal produce, custom-blended aromatics and no preservatives.
Regalis Tennessee Black Truffle Honeycomb
This completely edible honeycomb, comprised of a deep golden hued star-thistle honey from Georgia, is infused with fresh black Tennessee truffles from Chuckey, Tennessee. Perfect for any cheese board, the honeycomb pairs wonderfully with your favorite salty cheese.
Dequmana Mixed Olives
The Mixed Olives with Herbs is a perfect combination of hojiblanca, gordal, cuquillo, and arbequina olives, herbs and natural red pepper following a traditional recipe used in Andalucian homes each year upon the arrival of the harvest. A perfect pairing for washed rinds and savory aged cheddars.
Soft Shell Shakhurbai Almonds
An ancient heirloom from Afghanistan, Shakhurbai almonds are one of the world’s forgotten superfoods. Almonds in the Shakhurbai family have a sweet, nutty flavor. Sorted by hand by Ziba in Kabul, they are higher in protein than their California counterparts. The Shakhurbai almond is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients, Vitamin E, and Magnesium. Ziba dry roasts (without oil) and dusts them with Afghan Badakhshan salt, making them the perfect healthy snack.
Creminelli Prosciutto, Sliced
Original, whole muscle cut, paper thin slices contain just two ingredients: meat and sea salt. This domestic, Parma-style Prosciutto is aged bone-in until it reaches the perfect balance of salt and moisture. It comes ready for you to pair with your favorite cheese and wine. Great addition for charcuterie boards, salads, sandwiches and snacks.
These deliciously thin crackers are made in Australia, from wheat flower and a touch of umami-rich cheese, making them an excellent match for your at-home cheese tasting experience.
