Long Description

Packaged nicely together in one box, this special holiday bundle of our Cheese Grotto Piatto and three Marin French Cheese soft-ripened cheeses will educate and delight the cheese lover in your life! Not only is our award-winning cheese storage *humidor* the best way to store cheese at home, it can even be used to ripen and age whole wheels of brie and camembert to perfection. That's where Marin French Cheese's Petite Camembert, Petite Truffle Brie, and Petite Garlic & Pepper Brie come in: we'll include a printed guide on how to age these cheeses in the Grotto to your preferred stage of ripeness.


The Cheese Grotto Piatto’s breathable back panel and clay brick (which you’ll soak in water), make for a perfect climate for simple, long-term storage of wedges and wheels of cheese in the refrigerator or short-term storage on the kitchen counter.


Birchwood has been traditionally used in cheese preservation for hundreds of years, most notably for shelves in aging caves as its tight surface is slower to absorb and release moisture, making it excellent for long-term storage. The finish on our birch makes it mold and stain resistant, both in the interior and exterior. The architecturally handsome bamboo is extremely resilient, sustainable, and durable over a lifetime (3 x stronger than oak).


We designed the Grotto Piatto – which is collapsible for easy storage - for those with a smaller kitchen. The magnetic panels only require you to align each side of the Grotto properly for them to automatically lock into place - no additional tooling involved!


Marin French Cheese Co.’s collection of 4-oz Petite cheeses are a unique size & shape, perfect for snacking, enjoying solo or sharing with friends. This line of smaller format cheeses originated
in the late 1800s to feed hungry dock workers coming into the San Francisco Bay after the Gold Rush and has now grown into a line fit for traditionalists and more modern tastes alike. We're
featuring three Petites in their collection:


Petite Camembert uses traditional Camembert cultures when producing their cheese. The result is a young cheese with notes of crème fraiche, cauliflower, and white button mushrooms. An older wheel will have a flavor profile of asparagus, broccoli, and earth brown mushrooms.


Petite Truffle is irresistibly earthy and aromatic. It begins with the same recipe as their classic Triple Crème Brie with the addition of real black truffles imported from France. The rich flavor of
the black speckles seen throughout the paste of the truffle cheese is balanced by notes of sweet cream and a decadent, smooth texture.


Petite Garlic & Pepper is the perfect marriage of French tradition and California vision. Inspired by the recipe for a beloved fresh cheese made in France’s Auvergne region, they’ve enhanced their award-winning Triple Crème Brie with garlic and cracked pepper for a decadently savory experience. The rich creamy texture and buttery flavor of the Triple Crème Brie bring a lovely balance to the earthy garlic and spicy pepper.

About the Producer

Cheese Grotto is an internationally award-winning line of cheese storage for the true cheese lover in your life. Made in New York and Ohio in small production runs, the Grotto functions as a humidor and microclimate for your unwrapped wedges and wheels of cheese, helping you to preserve and prolong all aged varieties like the cheesemakers intended.

Marin French Cheese is the longest operating commercial cheesemaker in the United States, starting in 1865 during the Gold Rush in Marin County. Situated on 700-acre Hicks Valley Ranch, the land is certified organic and dedicated to pasture, crop, and preserving the natural landscape. Since the Great Depression, Marin French Cheese has sourced milk for their cheeses within a 15-mile radius of where they produce, and has carefully blended Jersey, Holstein, Guernsey cow milk for the best expression of their Camembert.

Serving Suggestions

All three Petites pair well with sparkling white wine, honey, and prosciutto.

Petite Camembert is wonderful with fresh fruit, fig, and apricot jam. It also shines with roasted mushrooms and caramelized onions. A more aged version of this cheese pairs wonderfully with Pinot Noir, or a fruity medium-bodied red wine.

Petite Truffle Brie is also lovely with petite champagne grapes, dry cider, or melted into an omelette or scrambled eggs with a side of roasted potatoes for a decadent brunch. Try a wedge of this brie atop steak.

Petite Garlic & Pepper Brie shines with a bit of sweetness, so pairing it with a Dry Riesling or a light, fruity, floral French cider does wonders. You can also enhance the savory qualities of the cheese with cornichons, olives, asparagus, or carrots. Candied and roasted nuts are a wonderful textural contrast and tart jams like cranberry or cherry cut through the rich, umami notes.

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.

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.
