Fancy Cheese for Mother's Day

Meet 'Cremeux des Citeaux aux Truffes' - one fancy name for one fancy cheese.  Cremeux, as we like to call it for short, is a triple crème from Burgundy, France that has a layer of black truffles riding through the middle.  The result is an unctuous buttery cheese imbued with the unmistakable taste of truffles.  Your Mother will thank you.

5 Tips for the Best Cheese Plate

1.    Make sure you have enough cheese: We recommend ¼ lb of cheese per guest – that’s just four bites!
2.    Don’t confuse your guests:  3-4 selections of cheese is the maximum
3.    Pair wisely: one kind of cracker or bread; one kind of seasonal fruit; one kind of jam or honey; perhaps some interesting nuts.  That’s it!
4.    Serve it uniquely: use a wooden serving board, a specially made slate, or a beautiful platter and don’t forget that each cheese needs its own serving knife!
5.    Choose a theme: explore one kind of genre (think triple crème); choose a milk and showcase its range (sheep’s milk cheese from creamy to aged); or highlight a particular region (cheese from the Pyrenees)  

 

"Cheesecake"

Rather, a cake made of cheese!  This is ever popular Down Under, and growing in style throughout Europe.  A fantastic alternative to traditional wedding cakes, or for any large gathering.  We built a truly elegant version for our first anniversary party and fed 200 people.
