Valentine’s Day – soft cheese tasting edition:
I was very curious about this cheese of the month club. The price seemed a little high, but after a sampling I’m totally hooked. When the plain, nondescript bundle arrived I was nervously excited to see what was inside…
What a thoughtful, heartfully put together package! Not only was the cheese carefully chosen but there is also a story to each selection, a reason for why this combination was selected.
This month to celebrate Valentine’s Day, a pink themed scroll including containing enlighting notes on whats new and trendy in the world of cheese. Hey, I also learned something new: chocolate pairs wonderfully with CHEESE!
Sweet Dalmatian fig jam dollops perfectly on the edges of sesame Danvita crackers.
La Recompense pairs best with the lemony chocolate, Brie aux Truffes tastes more of mushrooms than rich truffle, La Savagine tastes like has salted cream with a butter texture and La Baguette (my personal fav) invades the senses with ambrosial floral notes. And what a cute little touch of adding the Laughing Cow cheese – one spicy the other herbaceous.
Would I order another month of Cheese of the Month Club? Yes, it was a delicious experience and the cheese was selected with care. I also learned how incredibly cheese pairs with chocolate and it’s not every day you learn something new. To sweeten the deal you’ll get a 10% discount for every consecutive month you order.
