Vella Cheese has been around for a long time, since 1931 when the cheesemaking began. Vella Cheese Co. is know for its dry jack cheese and this Dry Monterey Jack cheese is an example of the masterpieces produced by the Vella family.
This artisanal Californian cheese is a hard cheese, a wonderful substitute for Parmigiano Reggiano, it has a yellowish paste that has a sweet nutty flavor. The cheese is made like the traditional Monterey Jack but aged longer; around 7 to 10 months.
Due to its age this gourmet cheese is great for grating, shredding, curling, but don't forget to enjoy it as it is, or on a cracker with a nice glass of your favorite drink, some fruit and nuts.
We hand-cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 1 pound and 8 ounces.
Ingredients:cultured pasteurized milk, enzymes, salt, coated with pepper, cocoa and soybean oil.
