Firm Texture Gourmet Cheese

Browse our great selection of Firm Texture Gourmet Cheese. Firm cheeses become harder and more concentrated with age. Firm cheeses have a lower moisture content than the softer cheeses as they lose as much as 15% of their weight as they age, which deepens their flavor. Many firm cheeses are made in the mountain regions. Try them and let us know what you think by giving us your opinion in a product review.

Picture of clothbound cheddar by cabot
This Clothbound Cheddar is made by Cabot Creamery, bandaged with muslin and skillfully aged 10-12 months at the Cellars at Jasper Hill, nearby Greensboro, Vermont. This gourmet cheese is a handsome natural rinded traditional cheddar, simple, approachable and balanced, with layers of lingeringly nutty, slightly fruity and nearly buttery flavor, while finishing with the mellowness of caramel undertones. Made from pasteurized milk, this cheddar has flavor notes typically attributed to raw milk cheeses; it has all the characteristic texture of an English-style cheddar. Cabot's Clothbound Cheddar won a Gold Medal at the 2004 World Cheese Awards in London read more...
