The Preserve: Whole tart cherries, sweet currants and exotic spices are perfectly blended to create this complex and deliciously balanced preserve. Intense cherry flavor leads the charge before caressing the palate with layered notes of spice and a long sweet peppery finish. Makes an eventful pairing with baked Brie, Chévre and Pâté, and as a savory topping for duck, pork and venison.
The Pepper: ah-bahn-AIR-oh, meaning from "Havana", is an intensely spicy chile with distinctive flavor and tropical fruit notes. Blended in the right amount, it gives the cheerful Cherries a lingering sweet spicy edge.
Heat Index: Mild
This firm, oily spanish cheese is mild, yet tasty and aromatic. The blend of milks allows it to obtain the grassy, herbaceous flavors of the goat and sheep's milk while maintaining the smoothness of cow's milk.
This French semi-hard cheese is aged for 70 days and has a smooth chewy texture. It is mild and nutty, and slightly fruity. Made with sheep's milk.
Fontina Val d'Aosta
This cheese is best noted as a savory and fruity table cheese. Aged for 90 days, it's extremely aromatic (some might say "pungent") with a slightly grassy flavor. Made from cow's milk.
Capricho de Cabra
A rindless, fresh goat cheese, like a Spanish version of French chevre, but the cheese is denser and super creamy. On the palate expect a burst of citrus flavor with a sweet and salty finish.
This cheese has been called the Dutch Gouda with an Italian flair. Aged for five months it has a nutty flavor with a firm, smooth texture of a young Gouda. Made from cow's milk.
