Cheddar is the most popular type of cheese in the UK.
The cheese originates from the village of Cheddar in Somerset, South West England. Cheddar Gorge on the edge of the village contains a number of caves, which provided the ideal humidity and steady temperature for maturing the cheese.
The flavor of French Brie is rich and fruity and has a creamy texture. Bries made of pasteurized milk are somewhat milder in flavor.
Klaverkass Estate Gouda
The name Klaverkaas, or ‘clover cheese’, refers to a diet rich in green clover that the pampered Holstein-Friesian herd enjoys day in and day out. The extra care lavished by the Kaamps family, one of the few remaining Dutch farmstead creameries, results in a cheese rich with brothy, caramelly flavor and a dense, toothsome bite.
Made using fresh, pasteurized sheep’s milk, this Manchego develops a rich nuttiness and pleasant gaminess after over a year of aging. The traditional use of grass moulds leaves a distinctive, characteristic zigzag pattern on the Manchego cheese. Authentic Manchego is only made from the Manchego sheep's milk. Manchego cheese is made from both pasteurised and unpasteurised milk.
Gruyere is nothing if not a gracious pairing partner- try it alongside a light, bright red, a big, rich white, or a handful of preserved walnuts and a few slices of smoky speck. Toasted nut, fruit, and grass flavors explode in your mouth. It's extraordinary. It's mind-blowing.
