 Tete De Moine

Tete de Moine is an old monastery-style mountain cheese whose name translates to "monk's head". Traditionally it is sliced horizontally with a girolle to create ruffled, very thin rosettes. Once the top part of the rind is taken off, it resembles the balk top of a monk's head. The firm, dense texture, though not dry, makes it perfect for paper-thin slices. The flavor can range from very fruity and rich to pungent and very sharp.

This is a wonderful version of the traditional Ossau-Iraty-Brebis from the Rigal Family of cheeses.

The flavor is refined and ballanced -- aromatic herbaceaous and fruity qualities with a buttery rich finish. This cheese is similar in style to an Etorki but has much more character and complexity largely due to its AOC status. Anyone who enjoys sheep cheese will quickly become an addict.

 Le Berger Basque

This raw sheep's milk cheese is definitely a little Basque treasure, about as rustic as a cheese can get. The natural rind betrays many of the good things that these lucky sheep are eating. The various molds point to a varied diet of herbs, grasses and other good nibbles. In particular, the prevalence of the rust colored mold on the rind may indicate a high content of carotene in their diet. The interior is firm and dense. It melts on the tongue with fabulous complexity, all at once nutty, sweet, herbaceaous and sheepy.

This relatively rare Parmigiano is available from only a small number of dairies. The "Vacche Rosse" cows, also referred to as "Razza Reggiana", produce much lower milk yields than the Holstein and Fresian cross, Risona Italiana" those are the primary producers of Parmigiano. The protein content of the "Vacche Rosse" is said to be higher, producing a richer, fuller cheese. The color shows that tendency, a buttery yellow in tone. When young it is fruity and mild and the cheese could certainly age as long as 5 years. This makes a great artisan additional to a Parmigiano selection.

Aging for four years could result in some pretty powerful cheese, but this Gouda gracefully ages to a mellow, very complex cheese that will add certain wisdom to the cheeseboard. It is a true Boerenkaas Gouda meaning a "farmer's cheese", that is also farmhouse thus made on a single farm. Boerenkaas are always made with whole, raw milk from cows that have been grazing on pasture. It is an excellent substitute for grating cheeses and will caramelize nicely under the broiler. The texture is similar to Parmigiano-Reggiano, very firm and flaky with the same clusters of protein crystals that burst with flavors on the palate. The color is deep amber and burnt orange, and the flavor is sweet and salty with a butterscotch finish.
