L’ Artisan Fermier 200gm
Timboon, Victoria, Australia, Semi Hard, Cow
This cheese is pressed for 12 hours in cloth, salted in a brine bath and then smeared every second day with a brine solution. After six weeks, the rind develops a reddish tinge and is slightly sticky to touch, a smear ripened cheese reminiscent of a classical Morbier with an ash layer in the centre.

MAURI GORGONZOLA DOLCE DOP 200g
Italy, Blue, Cow’s Milk
Gorgonzola originates from the village of the same name where cows once rested
after returning from their annual grazing of the rich mountain pastures of the Alps.
Bontazola is a sweet (dolce) creamy version of the traditional Piccante Gorgonzola
cheese. Dolce was developed during the early 1900’s and unlike the original it is
made from a melange of both morning and evening milk. The Mauri family makes
this cheese by hand in large wheels and then matures them in their caves. In the
confined darkness, the cheeses are first hand salted and then supported by a wrap of wooden slats. The blue pencillium glaucum mould is encouraged by vertically piercing the cheese over a three week period. Gradually the moulds permeate the cheese developing a fruity sweetness in the warm conditions.
