Vella Special Select Dry Monterey Jack - Whole Wheel
Vella Cheese is an old-timer in the world of making great American cheeses. Tom Vella began making cheese in 1931 in the Sonoma Valley of California. The company is now run by his son, Ig Vella, and is famous for its Jack cheeses. Jack cheese was created in the Gold Rush Days in Monterey, California by a Scotsman, named David Jacks. This Special Select Jack has all the same characteristics as Vella's regular Dry Jack, with its hard, pale yellow interior and sweet, nutty flavor. It is aged for a full year (as opposed to seven months) to develop an even harder texture and more intense flavor, making it similar to a Parmigiano Reggiano. To make this the "Special Select," the rind is rubbed with a mixture of black pepper and cocoa powder that is made into a paste with oil. This cheese goes well with fruit and wine and is excellent shaved over pasta.
