Scandinavian Cheese Flight
For our Scandinavian Cheese Flight we selected cheeses from the 3 major Scandinavian countries, Norway, Sweden and Denmark.
All three countries that represent this assortment are kingdoms; let's see whether you experience these cheeses to be kings in their own right:
A well-known, but not always easy to find Scandinavian cheese is Danish Blue (4 oz.); a blue-veined gourmet cheese with a sharp finish. If you like more, please select the 1 pound wedge.
The Norwegian Jarlsberg Cheese (7.5 oz.) is known for its distinctive sweet and nutty taste, and of course, those large, round holes. Jarlsberg is often called the Norwegian Emmentaler Cheese.
If you prefer a little bit more age try the North Sea cheese instead, a smooth, slightly sweet yet piquant flavor, balanced with surprising tang, nuttiness and a hint of North Sea saltiness.
A cheese that cannot be missed in a Scandinavian Cheese Platter is Gjetost (8.8 oz.). A Norwegian sweet red-orange gourmet cheese with an unmistakable sweet, almost fudgy, caramel taste.
Just in case you prefer and alternative, Aged Havarti is aged for over 12 months, this creamy havarti has notes of butter and fermented milk with the occasional fleck of crunchy crystal.
Swedish Farmer Cheese (8 oz.) is also part of this selection and is a lovely creamy cheese, melts easily, wonderful on a sandwich.You can select 8 ounces or 1 pound.
