  1. Hamden Quick View

    Hamden

    $34.99/LB
    Named for the next hamlet over from Vulto creamery in Walton, NY, Hamden is cheese gone wild. Its birth story: cheesemaker Jos Vulto took a few wheels from their Ouleout batch and let them free to develop their own natural rind. Lo and behold: a rich diversity of molds and yeasts on the rind for plenty of earthy crunch. Its semi-soft paste tastes of the valley in spring—fresh milk, just-cut grass, hay. Hamden is Tomme de Savoie’s Hudson Valley soul sister. It begs for farmhouse ale, a crusty baguette, and ripe stone fruit. Jos Vulto left his career as a metal-worker to follow the siren-call of cheesemaking. He started out in his Brooklyn apartment, crafting cheese in his kitchen and aging his wheels beneath the sidewalk. In 2012, he opened a real-deal operation in New York’s western Catskills. We’re happy he did. He sources milk his neighbor, farmer Dan Finn’s herd of Holstein and Jersey cows and makes raw milk beauties full of charisma and depth. Read More
  2. Mystic, Melville Quick View

    Mystic, Melville

    $14.99/EA
    Melville is a brand new cheese, from a brand new cheesemaking operation in Mystic, Connecticut, and we’re excited about it. Here’s why you should be, too: a white whale, it’s the rare American super-fresh Stracchino cheese, inspired by the Northern Italian style, which is all about smoothness, pliability and awesome meltability. Melville’s namesake is Herman Melville—homage to the texture of the soft, luxuriously buttery square of cow’s milk cheese. It’s a supple, silky “singularly fatty globule of pure deliciousness,” and a mere few weeks old. It’s a revelation with sweet tomatoes, or atop pizza and pasta, a bottle of Champagne highly recommended. Read More

  4. Asiago D'Allevo Quick View

    Asiago D'Allevo

    $18.99/LB
    With flavors reminiscent of the fragrances of yeast and dried fruit, this firm raw cow milk cheese starts out sweet and becomes more savory and piquant as it ages. From Italy's Po River Valley. Read More
  5. Beato de Tabara Quick View

    Beato de Tabara

    $25.99/EA
    We love a wonderful cheese with a juicy story. Santiago Lucas Leon was inspired by the illustrated manuscripts of the monastery of San Martin de Tábara. So he set out to make a brand new cheese with medieval soul. He and his sons raise goats in the Sierra de la Culebra, and nurture the raw milk into this cylinder of semi-firm goodness. Beato de Tábara tastes both of earthy monastic cellar and fresh pasture—sweet yet goaty, earthy, and bright. Thank you, cheesemaking (and cheese-drawing) monks. Fantastic with ripe pear and a glass of crisp Riesling, or rich Tempranillo. Read More
  6. Pria Azul Quick View

    Pria Azul

    $25.99/EA
    This rustic beauty hails from Asturias, in the misty mountains hugging the Northern coast of Spain. Pria Azul is a unique blend of 50% cow, 40% sheep and 10% goat’s milk, and is a far cry from other aggressive Spanish blue cheeses. The fresh wheels are both pierced to create bluing and also smoked, then aged to create a gorgeous natural rind. This process results in a incredibly creamy and milky paste, subtely gamey and smokey, with a perfect flavor trifecta of sweet, salty and savory. A must with port and luscious dark chocolate.

  7. Picon Bejes Tresviso Quick View

    Picon Bejes Tresviso

    $25.99/EA
    Miguel Angel and Francisco Javier Campo are brothers with cheesemaking in their blood—their parents made cheese in Cantabria, in the north of Spain, as did their grandparents, and their great-grandparents. This raw cow’s milk blue harnesses that rich tradition. It’s been name-protected since 1994, and won an impressively long list of awards. Piquant teal veins zigzag through Picon’s rustic, crumbly paste. It’s the ultimate piquante Spanish blue—bold and balanced, salty and refined. Serve on baguette with a drizzle of honey or apple jam for an elegant appetizer. Pair with sherry or tawny port for dessert. Read More
  8. Mahon Meloussa Quick View

    Mahon Meloussa

    $25.99/EA
    A Spanish classic made since Roman times, in Minorca in the Balearic Islands. Mahon gets its briny, punchy character from the Menorcan winds blanketing the island’s grass in fresh sea salt. The DOP regulations allow for a maximum of 5% sheep milk to be used—a throwback to when farmers needed to use whatever milk they had on hand. Mahon DOP Meloussa Semi is made from 95% raw cow’s milk and 5% raw sheep’s milk, and the latter delivers boozy fruitiness and just a hint of briny tang. Serve with juicy figs, marcona almonds, and a hoppy IPA, a fruity cider, or a spicy Rioja. Read More
  9. Arzua Ulloa Quick View

    Arzua Ulloa

    $25.99/EA
    On the banks of the Ulluo River in Galicia, where Arzua Ulloa is made and loved, it is sometimes called queixo do pays, meaning "cheese of the land". The name-protected beauty is crafted from milk from Rubia Gallega, Frisian and Alpine Brown cows that graze on the area’s green pastures. It’s aged for a mere two weeks—the pasteurized cheese is mild yet complex, redolent of freshly churned butter and proofing bread dough. Arzua Ulloa’s natural, straw yellow rind makes way to reveal a satiny ivory paste, smooth and unrelentingly creamy. Arzua Ulloa is a superstar melter. Make a no-joke grilled cheese, with or without quince paste (we vote with). Or serve with honey and marcona almonds, beside a crisp Albariño. Read More
