Celebrate the holidays with three very different Capriole cheeses—from fresh, to soft and subtle, to hearty—and create a diverse and delicious cheese board. Paired with two lush, fruit preserves from Quince and Apple and a Capriole cheese knife this collection will create an impressive last course for yourself or a friend. Packaged in a wood cheese crate.
One of the very first cheeses made at Capriole, O'Banon is dense and creamy with a texture like heavy silk and a flavor both fresh and complex. Wrapped in chestnut leaves that are marinated in Kentucky bourbon, this multiple award-winner is both gorgeous in flavor and presentation. (6oz.)
Capriole's newest ripened cheese, Flora, is delicate, fluffy, sweet, and slightly grassy when young. She wrinkles under her geotrichum rind to a perfect cream line and becomes denser--as we all do--as she ages. (6oz.)
Earthy, beefy and big in flavor this 6-8 month cheese is carefully bathed in a salt brine and finished with a wash of Imperial Stout and sorghum. The result is a unique cheese--somewhere between soft and firm, with an intense, nutty flavor, smoky overtones, and pungent aroma (7-8oz.)
Quince and Apple’s Fig and Black Tea preserves. Full-bodied black tea and sweet, delicate figs combine in a thoroughly seductive preserve that pairs beautifully with the hearty Mont. (1.5 oz)
Quince and Apple Raspberry Rose preserves. Lush raspberries and floral rose add a sweet, tart touch to both O’Banon and Flora. (1.5 oz)
Pairings: This collection makes a perfect dessert course. Serve with the last of the dinner wine. Add crostini or special nutty, sweet bread.
