American Artisanal cheese is a special group within the gourmet cheeses and it is continuously growing; more entrepreneurs invent new cheeses, new flavors. Our assortment of American Artisanal cheese is just the tip of the cheese berg and it will allow you to savor some of the many flavors the American cheesemakers produce:
Purple Haze (4 oz.): This artisanal cheese from Northern California is flavored with wild fennel pollen and lavender; a combination that reminds you of the French Provence.
Crater Lake Blue (8 oz.) is Rogue Creamery's most robust blue cheese. The cheese is hand-crafted and made with a complex blend of molds from Rogue Creamery and around the world, creating a vibrant blue-green color of the veins; a silky texture and bold, blue flavor.
Apple Smoked Cheddar Cheese (8 oz.) is made by Carr Valley Cheese Company. It is an all natural white cheddar that is apple smoked and then hand rubbed with paprika; the light smoky flavor balances very well with the paprika.
San Joaquin Gold (8 oz.) has a natural, thin rind with a tawny buttery color. Mildly sweet and mellow when young, it develops a darker golden hue and nuttier flavor over time. Its 'flesh' is firm and granular with an aroma of toasted nuts and browned butter.
