Cantalet DoreA rich, earthy, and sharp cow's milk cheese from Auvergne, France. 6.5 oz
Farmhouse Slate and PaddleA handsome slate serving platter set in durable acacia wood.
Petit BasqueAn approachable sheep's milk cheese with succulent notes of caramel and stone fruit. 5.5 oz
Olli Spiced SalamiSlow cured Olli salami crafted from heritage breed hogs and aromatic spices. 6 oz
Jamon Iberico de BellotaWidely considered to be the world's finest ham, Jamon Iberico de Bellota originates from free-range hogs that roam the oak forests of Western Spain feeding on acorns. The end result is a wonderfully marbled, nutty meat unlike any other. 2 oz
SottocenereAn irresistible semi-soft Italian cheese, pasteurized from cow's milk and laced with succulent truffles. 5.9 oz
Sometimes described as the French cousin of English Farmhouse Cheddar, Cantalet is a semi-hard cow's milk cheese that displays fresh buttery flavors when young then deepens into a sharp, earthy expression of its native Auvergne region as it matures. The paste is dense, rich, and creamy with a slight crumble that increases with age, while the rustic rind brings to mind the long history of the style, dating back 2,000 years to the time of the Gauls and coming to prominence at the table of Louis XIV. This is truly a heritage cheese worth savoring.
Cantalet Dore complements a vast variety of reds, but for an off-the-path experience open a bottle of gold-toned Gewurztraminer and enjoy the interplay of sweet, aromatic wine with the umami-edged Cantalet.
Though it may share a herringbone-patterned rind and an area of origin with the better known Manchego, Petit Basque is a sheep's milk beauty entirely its own. Succulent and creamy with a smooth, inviting paste, Petit Basque is less gamey and more approachable than many of its more "sheepy" brethren. Which is not to say it's simple; roasted nuts, stone fruit, and a subtle note of caramelized creme brulee shell all offer themselves to the attentive palate in a robust slice of this refreshingly young cheese from the Pyrenees.
Match an agreeable wedge of Petit Basque with an equally generous bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau for an exuberant and immediate fruit forward pairing, perfect for an early evening cheese course or a late summer picnic.
From the Northern Italian region of Veneto, this irresistible semi-soft cheese is pasteurized from cow's milk and 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".
Aromatic, unusual and delicate, the silky indulgence of Sottocenere is perfectly suited to the sparkle of Lambrusco or an Italian Barbera.

happy gifterLovely giftMarch 1, 2017
Food was delicious, very special cheese selection. The slate cutting board is surprisingly hefty and high quality. The soft/insulated cooler (which includes a scissors and two reusable ice packs that fit into pockets) is a terrific item unto itself. Recipient loved the entire package. I highly recommend.

I ordered this for my boyfriend for his 37th birthday and had it shipped to his work as a surprise. I was looking for something that would be KETO diet friendly as well as something for his mature palate. This fit the bill. FYI, this needs to be refrigerated upon delivery and was not mentioned anywhere on the site. Anyways, it came with a pair of scissors with which to cut the bow and my personalized note was attached to the scissors. "It's a very nice gift in a very nice lunchbox. It's well presented." He first commented on the quality of the board and real slate which are top notch. He has tasted a little bit of everything and has used the words exquisite, unique, and "Okay. Wow. Just wow." He's a very satisfied customer and has shared with his inner circle. Several coworkers have been asking him where he received it from from the looks and smells alone. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a unique gift for those with a mature palate so it can be truly tasted and enjoyed.
