Four unique picks from the Manhattan-based cheese caves come packed in a burlap bag with sea salt and olive oil crackers. Stinky cheese lovers will particularly appreciate the Jasper Hill Farm Greensward round: its lush gooey interior is wrapped in spruce bark and brushed in ale for a fragrant effect.
Imagine a ripe cheese, mellow in flavor, that’s so rich you’ll want to eat it by the spoonful. Meet Zingerman Creamery’s cow’s milk round that tastes like a much creamier Brie from your wildest dreams. It comes with a special bamboo cheese knife to cut it neatly. Enjoy completely on its own, or topped with fresh fruit for dessert.
A fantastic gift that celebrates American producers, this set includes marinated goat’s milk feta from Missouri, fruity cheddar from Iowa, and nutty sheep’s milk cheese from Wisconsin—nestled in a sturdy wooden crate. Seeded crackers and quince and apple preserves from Wisconsin round out the pack.
Look no further for cocktail party crowd-pleasers. This cow’s milk trio features conversation starters like “No Woman,” flavored with Jamaican jerk seasonings, and “Marco Polo,” which is chock-full of cracked green peppercorns.
These raw, aged cow’s milk blues—Oregon Blue Cheese, Smokey Blue, and American Cheese Society winner Oregonzola—are creamy without an acidic bite. Simply drizzle with honey (included), or slather on a homemade burger. It’s no wonder the 80-year-old Oregon-based dairy farm is famous for its sharp cheeses.
