Marco Polo was an explorer who introduced the Far East to Europeans, and to honor this 13th century adventurer, Seattle's Beecher's Cheese has named an adventurous cheddar after the man himself.
Beecher's takes their creamy Flagship cheddar and adds a blend of lightly milled and cracked green and black peppercorns to make Marco Polo. The resulting cheese is a rich savory cheddar with butter notes and clearly visible peppercorns. This gourmet cheese from the Northwest has received quite a number of awards.
A slice of this cheese melted on a burger, or grated into a baked potato is simply wonderful. Marco Polo pairs well with an ale of your preference or with a nice easy glass of Merlot.
