Selles sur Cher
Selles sur Cher, the quintessential AOC-protected raw goat milk cheese, hails from the goat fields around the Loire River in central France. The light dusting of ash on these small discs attracts beneficial mold, protecting the subtle, gentle interior of the cheese. The taste? Mild, milky and creamy with hints of citrus. Selles sur Cher is age pasteurized to ensure a uniform coating of edible mold, resulting in a mild paste with a creamy mouth feel. Most dry white wines pair well, while crisp, white Sancerres pair beautifully with Selles-sur-Cher.
Pecorino Toscano Stagionato
Pecorino Toscana Stagionato is a centuries-old D.O.C. (or name-controlled) table cheese from Tuscany. The Pecorino is sturdy and nutty with a hint of salt on the palate. Its pleasant and inviting nature appeals to cheese lovers and novices alike. Pair Pecorino Toscano Stagionato with olives, Italian cured meats and Italian wines from Chianti to Prosecco and even Muscat.
Tomme Fermier D’Alsace
Tomme Fermiere d'Alsace is a firm, washed-rind (smear) cow's milk cheese made in the Alsace region of France. This cheese continues to mature for an additional two to four months, with each wheel washed several times with a light Alsatian wine. This dramatically accentuates the lactic flavors and develops long, fruity notes with hints of mushrooms, grass, and butter.
