May Cheese Subscription – Autumn selection
Each month we choose a selection of cheeses with a common theme that are eating particularly well. Our May Cheese Subscription Box celebrates the arrival of Autumn.
Autumn brings cooler mornings, the changing colours of the leaves and the arrival of the local mushroom season. These cheeses are perfectly matched with silky soft flavourful mushrooms, or as part of an autumn cheese board, with your favourite seasonal vegetables and a glass of something special.
PARMIGIANO REGGIANO DOP – G.Cravero
Cow’s milk, Modena, Emilia-Romagna region, Italy
Selected by Giorgio Cravero for sale in Australia at approximately two years of age, this outstanding example has a succulent, moist texture with nutty notes and a complex, fruity sweetness that makes it an ideal table cheese.
G.Cravero Reggiano is delicious crumbled and enjoyed with Prosecco or shaved over your favourite mushroom dish.
TALEGGIO – Mauri Formaggi
Mauri Taleggio DOP is a classic Italian washed rind cheese with a creamy texture. Washed and brushed several times over a month, and matured in stacked wooden pine boxes, the cheese develops a thin bloom flecked with grey yeasts and blue mould on its distinctive orange rind.
BOSCHETTO AL TARTUFO – Il Forteto
Il Forteto Boschetto al Tartufo is a fresh, young pecorino-style cheese made with a combination of rich, creamy ewes milk and full-cream cows milk. This cheese is infused with prized fresh white truffles from the surrounding Tuscan countryside. Dense and moist in texture, this is a deliciously aromatic cheese.
ST DAVID DAIRY CULTURED BUTTER
Cow’s milk, Fitzroy, Victoria
St David Dairy fine cultured butter is handcrafted in small batches at the Fitzroy micro-dairy using only the freshest cream and premium cultures. It is slow-fermented, batch churned, and hand salted using Mount Zero Fine Pink Lake Salt Crystals. It adds another dimension to pan-fried mushrooms or your regular breakfast toast.
