Perhaps there is no greater credit to American artisanal cheese makers than the fact that today they hold their own on the international stage against European makers with thousands of years of tradition. This collection is perfect for anyone who wants to find out what all the hype is about. It puts on display some of the best American cheese from Massachusetts, Wisconsin, and right here in New York.

Great Hill Blue: From Massachusetts comes this raw cow’s milk, fully flavored blue cheese. It will hit your pallet with an immediate kick before it transitions into a pleasant tart after taste. It’s not too strong, not too mild, it’s the goldilocks of American blue cheese. 8 oz.
