Experience Cheese! Club Collection – March

Experience Cheese! Club Collection – March

Enhance your cheese pairing savvy with an exclusive Experience Cheese! Club collection featuring four fantastic American cheeses, a box of gourmet crackers and a cheese friendly accompaniment.  Serves 4-6 and includes beverage pairing suggestions.

Price: $49.00

 

The limited edition inaugural March Cheese Club collection includes four of my favorite artisan and farmstead cheeses from four states.  Each cheese is carefully crafted by hand by skilled artisans using traditional cheesemaking techniques and the highest quality milk from their farm or local dairy.  This is small, sustainable agriculture at its finest.

You get 1 1/4 pounds of exceptional cheese, a package of gourmet crackers, exotic & fruity Membrillo Paste brings the sweet balance and a keepsake card with cheese info and pairings enhances your tasting experience.

This collection was selected for an Arizona Beer Week tasting and includes expert beer pairings from the Brewmaster & Chef at Four Peaks Brewing, Arizona’s largest craft brewer. It is the first time I’ve paired an Arizona cheese with some of my favorites from around the country and it definitely won’t be the last.  I am so excited to see the emergence of local cheese in the state I’ve called home for almost four years!

 

 

Gather your cheese & beer loving tribe and prepare to Experience Cheese!  You’ll never think of cheese the same way again.

This perfect intro to our American cheese scene has as short window of opportunity.    Order by Tuesday 2/28 at noon for delivery Friday, March 2 to Scottsdale, Phoenix & Cave Creek

Here’s more on the cheeses:

Peppercorn Goat Cheese & Hop KnotPeppercorn Goat CheeseCrow’s Leap Dairy, Buckeye, AZ

Rich and palate coating, this fresh goat cheese has that distinctive goat cheese tang with a light, fluffy texture and the zing of fresh cracked black peppercorns.  Awesome combo for hot, summer days!

Pair with a light, hoppy IPA or a Sauvignon Blanc.  

 

Beecher's Flagship and IPABeecher’s Flagship ReserveBeecher’s Handmade Cheese, Seattle, WA

Over 12 months of careful aging in traditional cloth wrap bring this bold and balanced cheese to perfection.  Nutty, tangy notes and a sweet finish happen when Cheddar and Gruyere cultures mingle in this crumbly, dense and satisfying cheese.

Pair with a nice, hoppy English style ale or a fruit forward Cab or Syrah.  

 

Pleasant Ridge ReservePleasant Ridge ReserveUplands Cheese, Dodgeville, WI

This savory and complex cheese is an American made cheese in the Alpine style.  The dense, firm paste has a slight granularity and golden color which comes from the extra flavorful pasture grazed cows.  Very seasonal, made only when cow’s are grazing.

Pair with a malty Amber Ale or Reisling.  

 

Mt Tam Triple Cream

Fans of rich and decadent cheeses will swoon over this buttery triple cream with a smooth, spreadable paste and edible white rind.  The ripening process is visible: the paste beneath the rind is smooth and spreadable surrounding a firm heart.

Pair with a rich Stout or Porter or a Sparkling wine.
