    Coombe Castle Crme Fraiche S/O #33375 12/6 oz French for fresh cream, it is a heavy cream that has been slightly soured with a bacterial culture, much in the way that sour cream is.

It's not at all sheepy or salty, but rather has a nutty, sweet, milky flavor. Extremely versatile, Ricotta Salata can be used in salads and pasta dishes and is ideal for grating.

The Buffalo cows are exclusively fed corn, and carefully selected hay, bran and straw on the prairie grasses. The paste is layered with a slight eye formation, slightly elastic in the first 8 - 10 hours. There is a hint of musk and when cut it should have all the aroma of the live lactic cultures of the buffalo milk. (Pre-Order Air Shipment)

    Alta Langa Robiola Bosina S/O #34061 12/250 gm Robiola Bosina is a fresh, soft-ripened cheese made with two milks: cows and sheeps milk.

It is important to serve at room temperature in order to better savor the fullness of its taste. (Pre-Order Air Shipment)

    Alta Langa La Tur La Tur (in Piedmontese dialect) means The Tower, this cheese is named for the tower in the village of its origin.

Delicious and unique, it is aged about 10 days.

    Il Forteto Brinata S/O #33807 3/2 lb Pure Sheeps Milk Fresh Cheese. The surface of the edible rind is crusted with a delicate white mold, resembling felt, which makes the fresh cheese even softer and tastier by favoring the growth of typical micro flora. The production process is quite complex because only a correct balance between humidity and temperature during aging can ensure uniform molding of the rind. This cheese is best eaten with rind.

Almost similar to Stilton in size and texture, Shropshire Blue's most defining characteristic is the bright orange color (added annatto) of the body with brighter blue veins than that of Stilton. With a creamier body than Stilton, you'll notice a more pronounced tangy and sharp aftertaste with lingering hints of red wine.

Suitable for vegetarians.

Try with a crusty baguette and a tart apple.

    Coombe Castle White Stilton with Apricots S/O #21973 2/2.2 lb Succulent apricot pieces add their delicate sweetness to cheese. The exotic, round flavor of this tiny fruit has been preserved, and thus intensified, during a drying process. A young, close-textured cheese with a very mild, fresh, slightly sour flavor and creamy-crumbly texture. Wonderful as a table cheese or gently melted, can even be crumbled over salads for an off-beat signature dish. At tea time, try on warm buttered scones with apricot white tea.

It is a vegetarian cheese made from cow's milk with 45% milk fat and a texture ranging from semi-soft and slightly crumbly to creamy. Apples and pears already accompany cheese so well on cheese platters and in desserts (think apple pie with melted Cheddar on top), its surprising a pear and apple cheese wasnt invented sooner!
