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.

May's Cheese of the Month Collection includes:

Manchego

Country: Spain

Milk: Sheep

The Manchego is produced in the La Mancha region of Spain, which is also home to Don Quixote. It is one of the popular cheeses from Spain. The rind is inedible with a distinctive, traditional herringbone basket weave pattern, pressed on it.There are specific differences in Manchego cheeses, depending on their aging period. Semi Curado - Young Manchego cheese is aged around 3 months and is supple and moist. The flavor is fruity, grass, hay with a tangy note. Traditionally served with marcona almonds and membrillo quince paste, Tempranillo and Pinot Grigio.

Sartori Sarvecchio

Country: United States WI

Milk: Cow

Sartori SarVecchio has captured the gold at multiple World Cheese Championships and Global Cheese Awards, and it’s no wonder—this salty yet caramelly-sweet, creamier version of Parmigiano-Reggiano has just enough umami flavor to keep the crowds coming back for more.

Use this cheese as you would imported Parmesan-grated atop pastas, salads, soups, or merely munched upon as an addictive afternoon snack. Add a big California cabernet and toast to the spirit of American artistry.

 

Bucheron

Country: France

Milk: Goat

Bucheron was one of the first French goat cheeses exported to the U.S. Every sliced round of Bucheron offers two magic textures: a fat, sometimes inch thick, cream line forms beneath the downy, edible white rind- a perfect visual of surface ripening in action. The large format means that the creeping goo will never reach the center, so there's always fresh, fluffy, lemony chevre left for contrast. 

Any dry, flinty blanc from its home of the Loire Valley will be a perfect pairing.

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