Gourmet Soft-Ripened Cheese

Browse our great selection of International Gourmet Soft-Ripened cheeses. Soft-ripened cheeses (also called surface-ripened or bloomy cheeses) are ripened from the outside in; they are soft and often runny at room temperature. The most common soft-ripened cheeses have a white, bloomy rind that is sometimes flecked with red or brown. The rind is edible and is produced by spraying the surface of the cheese with a special mold, called penicillium candidum, before the brief aging period. Soft-ripened cheeses can be made with raw or pasteurized milk, but the ones made with pasteurized milk cannot be imported into the US due to the USDA required 60 days maturation time. Cheeses in the soft-ripened category include brie, camembert styles, and the triple crèmes. Try them and let us know what you think by giving us your opinion in a product review.

We will be adding exciting new Gourmet Soft-Ripened Cheeses frequently, so come back soon!

Our Featured Gourmet Soft Ripened Cheese
Picture of cambozola®
Cambozola® is a triple cream blue-veined cheese made in Germany by Kaserei Champignon. This gourmet cheese is perfect for those looking for a blue cheese that is neither pungent (like a Stilton), nor crumbly (like a Roquefort); it's a creamy combination of the white mold rind, like a Camembert with the blue veins like a Gorgonzola. A soft-ripened blue-veined cheese is also a great starting point to explore the world of blue cheese; and for the blue cheese connoisseurs this German gourmet cheese complements other sharper and dryer cheeses. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound. If you would like to order an entire wheel of approx. 5 pound, please contact us. read more...
