*Jiko Artisanal Cheese Selection

Cellars at Jasper Hill Harbison – US (Cow)
Harbison is a soft-ripened cheese with a rustic bloomy rind. This cheese is wrapped in strips of spruce tree’s inner bark that is harvested from the woodlands of Jasper Hill in Greensboro, Vermont. This cheese is quite soft and has a woody, sweet flavor, balanced with notes of lemon, mustard.

Midnight Moon – US (Goat)
Aged six months or more, this pale, ivory cheese is firm, dense and smooth with the slight graininess
of a long-aged cheese. The flavor is nutty and brown-buttery, with prominent caramel notes.

Nancy’s Hudson Valley Camembert – US (Blend)
Nancy’s Hudson Valley Camembert is a creamy, soft-ripened cheese made from the milk of East Fresian Ewes and a cow’s milk. Nancy’s Camembert is meltingly smooth and buttery with the texture of a triple-créme.

Pecorino Toscano – Italy (Sheep)
Pecorino Toscano is a centuries -old D.O.C (or name-controlled) table cheese from Tuscany. This Pecorino is sturdy and nutty with a hint of salt on the palate.

Smokey Oregon Blue – US (Cow)
This cheese is cold smoked for 16 hours over hazelnut shells from the Pacific Northwest. The result is a balance of sweet caramel and hazelnut flavors that magically contrast the sharpness of the blue cheese. This is the first American blue cheese ever smoked.
