Carefully-aged Cantalet Dore, Sottocenere and Petit basque cheeses complement the heritage flavors of two cured Iberico meats. Cantalet Dore is sometimes described as the French cousin of English Farmhouse Cheddar. A semi-hard cow’s milk cheese, it complements a vast variety of red wines. Petit Basque is a succulent and creamy sheep’s milk cheese with notes of roasted nuts and stone fruit. Sottocenere is from the Northern Italian region of Veneto. This irresistible semi-soft cheese is laced with delicate flecks of truffle. The rind is rubbed in truffle oil and aged in a coating of nutmeg, coriander, cinnamon, licorice, cloves, and fennel. A thin layer of ash covers the spiced rind as the cheese ages, which is where this creamy cheese gets its name – Sottocenere essentially means “under ash”. This impressive combination of cheese and charcuterie is sure to delight your palate!
