Cheese Of The Month Collection

Each month, Petrossian offers a collection of three of the world's finest gourmet cheeses. The selection changes at the end of the month, so make sure to check back often to see our latest trio.

September's Cheese of the Month Collection includes:

La Blonde d’Antan

La Blonde D’Antan looks a bit like Le Chevrot, and such as, it has the characteristics you seek in a French Loire Valley Goat. Flaky and soft when young, with a mild citrus tang; as it ages, the wrinkled rind dries out, as does the paste, becoming increasingly firm, flinty, and piquant. La Blonde d’Antan pairs perfectly with a rose or a crisp white wine with a crunchy baguette.

Pecorino Grand Cru

Produced in Sassari, an area of Sardinia famous for its Pecorino, our Pecorino Gran Cru is made with 100% sheep milk. The cheese is aged 20 months using techniques normally applied to Parmigiano Reggiano, which makes this an innovative product. Its aroma is an incredible balance of the sophisticated notes from the long aging and the sweetness of fresh milk. Sweet and well balanced, with an intense bouquet of flavors, including long lasting milk aromas-rarely found in aged cheeses. Semi-firm, Pecorino Grand Cru can be eaten alone or with a drop of honey, or marmalade and melts nicely in your mouth. But pairing it with a full bodied red wine Like Sardinian Cannonau brings out the flavor even more.

Jersey Girl

Jersey Girl was given the honor of being selected for the cheese course at the 2013 Presidential Inauguration Luncheon. Bob Sweitzer and Sharon Tomaselli are both scientists, and former paper makers turned cheese makers in Upstate New York. Their Jersey Girl is unique in that it uses a recipe typically reserved for commodity block cheeses. However, when made with a commitment to raw, grass-fed cow’s milk and then nurtured with a natural cave-aged rind- let’s just say this cheese will change any prejudice you might have against “boring” Colby Jack. 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 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. This Colby cheese will pair well with a Chenin Blanc or Champagne. A wonderful cheese with a traditional “old world” Pilsner Beer.
