New England Cheese Collection
|This artisan New England Cheese Collection includes the following terrific items:|
Bridgid's Abbey: Based on an ancient Belgian recipe, this Trappist-style monastery cheese has a smooth, creamy consistency and a delicious, rich taste. Made right on the farm, Bridgid's Abbey tastes of the seasonal cow's milk it is made from, but always has a round flavor, which is well developed and complex.
Organic Tarentaise: Organic Tarentaise is an aged, raw-milk, organic cheese, handmade by John and Janine Putnam on their family farm in North Pomfret, Vermont. Aged for six months, Tarentaise develops a unique and complex flavor.
Grafton Village 3 Year Cheddar: Boldly complex with immediate impact, this full-flavored, three-year raw milk cheddar cheese is imbued with that distinctive cheddar "bite" that's balanced by a sweet, creamy finish.
Chocolate Capri Log by Westfield Farm: If the notion of a semi-sweet chocolate goat cheese appeals to you, you will positively fall in love with this new creation from Westfield Farm. Fresh goat cheese is blended with bittersweet Venenzuelan chocolate.
Middlebury Maple by Castleton Crackers: Castleton Crackers use all-natural ingredients. They mix, roll, bake, and then crack them by hand creating beautiful, rustic looking crackers. This slightly sweet cracker hints at maple and pairs well with sharp cheddar, brie or a tangy goat's cheese.
Aged Parmesan Gourmet Wafer Crisps: Kitchen Table Baker's special blend of pure aged cheeses lends itself to a complex yet uniquely subtle flavor that goes well by itself, with a Caesar Salad, a bowl of soup, a glass of wine or with any of your favorite gourmet dips or toppings. These crisps are wheat, gluten and sugar-free!
igourmet has a dedicated commitment to ensuring the safe, efficient delivery of our food products. To this end, we are constantly researching, developing and improving our FreshWave packaging system. During the summer months, we use an air tight, fully insulated, temperature retaining packaging system that keeps its contents cool for as many as 48 hours in ambient temperatures of up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit or 24 hours in temperatures up to 105 degrees. Through the use of the FreshWave packaging system, igourmet.com can absolutely guarantee that the food products you receive from us are in the same fresh condition as when they left our facility. The FreshWave system combines a reusable, seamless, molded cooler chest with a non-toxic refrigerant gel pack and strategically placed chips of dry ice. Your perishable foods are temperature controlled within the confines of the cooler, which itself is encased in an outer cardboard shipper. To further contain temperature escalation, we fill the remaining areas with void fill to minimize the amount of air circulating within the system. As an added bonus, you get to keep the cooler and the refrigerant gel packs to use for your next picnic or road trip. In the winter months, we may utilize a less robust system for the cooler states.
