Authentically developed by an ex-dairy cheesemaker for true dairy-like flavours that are paired with great textures. Uses dairy-methods for greater flavours without any tricks.
Tasting profile: Sharp with moldy spicy, salty and sour notes.
Texture: Firm and very creamy.
Maturity: 8-weeks minimum.
Disclaimer: As of June 2020 there has been climate control issues in the cheese-cave. This has allowed excess moisture loss from the cheese wheels as it matures. This results in a cheese that is a bit more harder than it should be. This is still a good cheese. But not up to our standards of cheesy perfection. Food by Sumear is currently in the middle of moving to a bigger kitchen and underground cheese-cave so production can increase and quality can be kept as high as possible. Please support to help us be even better in the near future ;)
"Each bite is phenomenal! The cheese is hard, yet crumbly- it melts in your mouth! It’s strong, slightly salty, pungent, sour and spicy and YET creamy in the same time!"
Pairings & Uses
Eating: Crumble on small, bite-size crackers, OR over dishes or level up a sauce.
Wine Pairing: Pair with an acidic/sweet dessert wine.
This cheese is not for the faint of heart. A vegan cheese using a real strain of Blue Penicillium Roqueforti mold that is strong flavoured, sharp and slightly sour.
Paired with my secret blend of good bacteria cultures, it has been matured over two months to have a complimentary tanginess. No other vegan cheese comes close to this beauty of a beast!
Yea it's not that cheap, but this vegan cheese has been expertly crafted to be so strong, using my dairy cheesemaking knowledge, that you won't be able to eat it all in one sitting and have no choice but to saviour it ;)
