The winter chill may still be upon us in Massachusetts, but in the Roche Bros. cheese shop, we are “California Dreaming”! We are featuring several California cheeses, each one so special you’ll be ready to serve it alone, or with a selection of choices for a party.
Here is a round-up of some of the best cheeses the “Golden State” has to offer, right here at Roche Bros. Look for the Real California Cheese Seal!
Fiscalini Lionza: Lionza has a thin, naturally hard rind, a semi-soft springy texture, a sweet milky caramel-like flavor and an enchanting aroma. It’s a wonderful snacking cheese, and works well in fondue.
Fiscalini San Joaquin Gold: This firm cheddar-like cheese with a granular texture has a natural, thin rind and a tawny buttery color. With flavors of nuts and butter, it’s great for grating and melting.
Karoun Feta Basket Cheese with Kalamata Olives & Thyme: This strong-flavored cheese is an ideal complement to salads, sandwiches and fruits.
Karoun String Cheese with Caraway Seeds: This cheese is beautifully braided according to Middle Eastern tradition.
GOPI Paneer: A lacto-vegetarian cheese that’s traditionally used in Indian dishes, this cheese can be deep fried, marinated, barbecued or used in sweet dessert.
Yanni Grilling Cheese: The name says it all! Place this cheese between two slices of your favorite bread and grill it.
Rumiano Grass Fed Organic Cheese: Started on a small dairy farm in 1919, Rumiano Cheese Company is the oldest family-owned cheese company in California. Enjoy Monterey Jack, Mozzarella, Pepperjack or Sharp Cheddar.
