. This month, we welcome the Midwestern debut of Cowgirl Creamery’s first-ever large-format cheese (1/15#)  Wagon Wheel was developed in collaboration with Bay Area chefs as a domestic alternative to cooking cheeses such as Asiago, so it melts beautifully in most recipes.  It has a mild, easygoing flavor and as it ages, we’ve found that it develops tomme-like characteristics...

Essex 1605 Manchego
We often categorize Manchego as a basic cheese. It’s found virtually everywhere, easy to sell, and just flavorful enough to be crowd pleasing. Because of this, it’s easy to forget Manchego’s rich history and its notability. It was first mentioned in 1605 by Cervantes’s novel about the rambunctious nobleman of La Mancha, Don Quixote.

Tomme Saint Georges This washed rind, sheep’s milk cheese has been one of our staff favorites this year. Named after the town where it is made in the Midi-Pyrenees region of France, Tomme Saint Georges strikes us as a cross between a traditional tomme and a sheep’s milk alpine.
