Black Truffle Cheddar
CHEDDAR AGED 60 DAYS | RAW COW MILK | 8 OZ. WAXED BLOCK
Black Truffle is the delicate mingling of the Original Plymouth recipe sailed metaphorically to the shores of Tuscany. In the Italian tradition, truffle cheeses are typically made with sheep’s milk—but this pioneer is a raw cow milk version, aged for sixty days, infused with real truffle morsels from Italy and touches of white truffle oil. Italian black summer truffles, called scorzone, grow naturally and elusively below the soil’s surface in woodlands, and are known to have a subtler flavor than the winter variety. The result here is a luscious slow-dance of flavors; a mellow and approachable cheese that is at once earthy, straightforward, sexy and smooth.
