Cheese Board Bundle
Cheese Board is a cheese lovers dream. 6 amazing cheeses – 4 to slice up and enjoy with your favorite wine, a nice lump of parmasan to grate over your favorite pasta dishes, and some mozzarella because it’s the easiest way to liven up a quick salad.
There’s a total of about 1.19 kilograms of cheese. Bundled together and delivered to your home for ¥297. That works out to about ¥249 a kilogram. In comparison, the average price of highly processed supermarket spew that is often labelled as cheese, it typically ¥40 for 200 grams. So for only 20% more than processed gunk, you can have decent quality REAL cheese. So lets get on with telling you about these cheeses.
Edam with Roasted Walnuts
Edam, as we all should know, is a dutch cheese, made in the Netherlands. Edam made from partly skimmed milk so the fat percentage of the Edam cheese is lower (40%) than the fat percentage of a Gouda cheese (48%). This particular Edam is blended with roasted walnuts before it’s allowed to age and mature. This cheese board has 170 grams of Edam with Roasted Walnuts.
We would pair this cheese with a decent and well balanced Chardonnay so look out for one in our Wednesday wine sale.
Edam with Mustard
The mild and nutty flavor of the Edam is contrasted with the tang of mustard and wow does it work well. There is 170 grams of Edam with Mustard in this cheese board and we would look to pair this with a classic Pinot Grigio.
Edam Trivia – From the 14th until the 18th century, Edam cheese was the most popular cheese in the world especially at sea and in the colonies far away. Because of the fact that the Edam cheese could mature very well and could become very old, it was easy to bring it along to eat while traveling.
With most people still on a buzz from our amazing Iberico Pork Bundle (if you missed out on that, then you can CLICK HERE and get some while it’s still around!) no doubt there are questions about what other cullinary wonders come from this very special region of Spain. Well, cheese of course!
Queso Iberico is a Spanish cheese made from a mixture of cow’s, sheep’s, and goat’s milk. The distinctive piquant taste of this white cheese ranges from nutty to fruity. It has a rich, buttery texture that goes well when served with a full bodied red wine.
We have 150 grams of this dairy wonder in this cheese board bundle.
Gran Moravia Parmigiano (Parmasan)
Gran Moravia is a hard cheese produced with traditional copper vats and then slowly and long aged.
Gran Moravia has an intense and nutty taste. The flavor of Gran Moravia enriches any single dish. It is ideal both as table cheese or grated, in shaves or cubes – or paired with a full bodied red wine on a cheese board.
We have 200 grams of this cheese on this cheese board bundle.
(This cheese is suitable for vegetarians, is halal certified and is naturally lactose free)
While the aficionados might suggest that there’s no place for mozzarella on a cheese board, we have included this because it’s probably THE most requested cheese that we have never sold. So the wine snobs can leave this one for a salad or to whack on a home made pizza. Everyone else can just pile it on and quaff it with almost any dry white wine, or a dry sparkling white wine.
This is a 250 gram ball of cheese but despite it’s size, it just won’t last long once you get your hands on it.
Scamorza is an Italian cow’s milk cheese belonging to the pasta filata family. Shaped similar to a provolone in pear shape, it is a semi-soft white cheese with a texture comparable to that of a firm, dry Mozzarella. Scamorza is made throughout Apulia and in some parts of Campania and Molise.
At the end of the cheese making process, which is akin to Mozzarella, the cheeses are hanged together in strings to ripen for about two weeks. The process of ripening the cheese has given Scamorza its name, which in southern Italy means ‘beheaded’.
Scamorza has a denser texture than mozzarella and is smoked over pecan shells to enhance the flavor and darken the color of the cheese.
There’s a 250 gram Scamorza in this Cheese Board Bundle.
