This is a wonderful gift for somebody who loves blue cheese. Each cheese is from around here, the USA. Each blue gourmet cheese is an award winner - even more than once, and they're all different in their blue-ness. Different in origin, color, sharpness and flavor and they all stood the test of time. So I think you can say this is a Gift Box with American Blue History.
Original Blue - an award winning Californian blue cheese made from raw cow's milk. A creamy cheese that is great for beginners. It is beautifully chalky white with sharp lines of contrasting blue-grey veins that give the cheese an almost marble appearance (8 oz.).
Maytag Blue - already in 1941 the Maytag Dairy Farms began producing world famous Blue Cheese in Iowa. Now several generations later the Maytag family is still producing the same high quality blue cheese as in the earlier 1900s. Maytag Blue is made with unpasteurized milk from Holstein cattle; the hand-made cheese is made in small batches and is aged for months in the Maytag curing caves. Maytag Blue Cheese is used in many recipes and loved all over the country. The cheese has a delicious flavor and a crumbly texture. Is not overly sharp, but you'll know you're eating a blue cheese (8 oz.). As long as Maytag Blue is unavailable, we'll add another American Blue cheese.
Buttermilk Blue - a Wisconsin cheese that is sharper than the first 2 cheese of this board and shows more blue/green veins. This award winner is predominantly made with milk form Jersey cows and a secret blend of cultures (8 oz.).
Smokey Blue - the first smoked blue cheese in the world and it has a sweet flavor of caramel and hazelnuts that mellows the sharpness of the blue cheese. This Oregon-made award winning cheese is cold smoked for 16 hours with hazelnut shells and cave aged a minimum of 6 months, resulting in a delicious and interesting blue cheese (8 oz.).
