1. Gruyère 1655
This bitch boasts beefy, brothy notes that beg for some meaty loving. IMO Gruyère 1655 is the one out there. It’s studded with tiny crunchy crystals bursting with complex, blossoming flavors of toasted nuts and caramelized shallots. Pair with baby cornichon pickles.
2. Isigny Ste-Mère Mimolette
This tangy bitch has a subtle note of sage that goes particularly well with pistachio-studded pâtés. Plus, that bright orange color brings sex appeal to any cheese plate. Pair with whole grain mustard.
3. Black Pepper BellaVitano
This bitch is firmer and tangier than block cheddar, making her perfect for a little pâté. She also has an earthy, musky flavor that is burly enough for bold porky flavor. Pair with pickled pearl onions.
This flaky Italian goat’s milk bitch has a delicious herbaceous flavor that soaks into that meatiness like herb-roasted poultry. It teases out the more complex flavors in pâté without overpowering it. Pair with rosemary-infused crackers.
