Three Months of Artisanal Cheese

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. The total price for cheese and three deliveries is $325.

April's Cheese of the Month Collection includes:

Drunken Goat

Literally meaning ''goat with wine'' this semi-firm pasteurized goat cheese from Spain's Mediterranean coast is cured for 48-72 hours in Doble Pasta red wine. The paste remains nearly pure white and the rind absorbs a lovely violet hue. The paste is sweet and smooth, delicately grapey, with a gentle, pliable texture and mild fruity flavor. A D.O.P cheese. This pairs beautifully with light fruity red wines, like Tempranillo.

Morbier

From the Jura comes this raw cow's milk cheese. Legend has it that Comte makers with extra curds at the end of each day sprinkled them with soot to protect them from flies until they could add curds from the following morning's milking. The wheels were then pressed and washed with brine. Today the layer is one of vegetable ash, a merely a decorative cue to a washed rind that we finish to pungent perfection. Wine pairing: Oxidized Jura whites, like Pinot Noir or Riesling.

Pecorino Toscano

Pecorino Toscano Stagionato DOP is created from locally collected sheep's milk during September and June. As it ages, the cheese loses its milky white color and takes on a hay-colored, ivory hue. The sweet, silken texture of the original cheese slowly gives way to a sharp, zesty flavor with a brittle texture. Pecorino Toscano Stagionato DOP is perfect for chunking into romaine and dandelion green salads, or rolled in extra virgin olive oil and served as part of an antipasto tray. This cheese pairs well with hoppy beers, Pinot Grigio or Chianti.


Note: There will be additional shipping charges to gift programs sent to Hawaii, Alaska, or Puerto Rico.
