Menu items provided by Quality Cheese Inc:

  • Brillat Savarin ($14 – 7 oz – 24 available): Be prepared for a dreamy-fluffy texture and a charming, long lasting richness on the palate. This is a triple cream Brie, meaning that cream has been added to the milk in order to reach a higher satisfaction – pardon: fat – content. Buttery, buttery, buttery in every aspect. Pair it with fresh berries, hardy charcuterie or a sweet & spicy jam.
  • Gruyère ($13 – 8 oz – 40 available): Not your usual Gruyere. This one is made by only one dairy, and it is aged for 18 months. It is spiked with crunchy crystals yet has a creamy mouthfeel. Rustic and robust, a bit salty, a bit sweet and just the perfect for the soul. Enjoy it as a table cheese, together with some good bread, grapes and walnuts. Grate it onto a salad, pasta or risotto. Or use it for cooking: Gruyere melts like cream and adds pep to any dish. Grilled cheese, anyone?
  • 2 Mini Brie & 1/2 Saucisson ($11 –30 avaliable): Your pack includes two pieces of a cute little Brie (1 oz/pce) and half a link of a dry cured, salami style sausage from France. The two go very well together and make for a perfect picknick, an Al Fresco-Supper or a cozy snack. Get that Rosé chilled, friends!
  • Virtual Cheese & Chocolate Tasting Kit ($35): Fort Myers’ very own chocolate master Norman Love and cheese lady Caroline Hostettler are inviting you to a virtual tasting of finest cheese and chocolate pairings! The tasting will take place on Friday, June 12 at 5 p.m, and this Virtual Tasting Bag is your ticket to the event. It contains a piece each of five different cheeses and 2 pieces each of five different chocolates. So reserve your bag and join the fun. An e-mail with the link to our zoom meeting will be sent out the day before the event. Looking forward to seeing you there. It will be delightful for sure! Find out more here.
