(8 oz) Mountain Gorgonzola: Italian Gorgonzola is also made from cow's milk. We are featuring the more aged variety.

This sampler features four cheeses that are typical of four distinct regions of Italy: Provolone Piccante: We love this Piccante v...ersion, which is rarely available in the U.S. and much more interesting than the mild Provolone most Americans have come to know. One of the great sandwich cheeses, Provolone Piccante is also an excellent melting cheese that is perfect in omelettes or atop a toasted baguette. (8 oz) Grana Padano Stravecchio: The original hard Italian cheese, Grana Padano is a firm, dry, fruity cheese from the Po Valley of Northern Italy. Stravecchio is aged for an optimal 20 months. Grate it over pasta, vegetables, or soup; or serve it as a table cheese drizzled with extra virgin olive oil. (8 oz) Mountain Gorgonzola: Italy's famous blue cheese comes from Lombardy. Made from cow's milk taken from local herds that graze on beautiful rolling pastures, no Italian Cheese Assortment would be complete without a cut of authentic Gorgonzola. (8 oz) Pecorino Toscano: This soft, sheep's milk cheese is made in the hills of Tuscany. It is young, sweet and springy. We find that this combination well represents the wide variety of flavors and textures found in Italian cheeses. (8 oz) igourmet.com Signature Cheese Serving Knife: Specifically crafted for us at igourmet.com, this multi-function cheese knife is the perfect tool to easily slice uniform servings of your favorite cheeses.

What could be better than to break out that prized bottle of wine you've been saving, served with some of the world's greatest che...eses?

(8 oz) Beemster Classic Extra Aged Gouda: One of the rarest, most sought after Dutch specially-cured cheeses (8 oz) Gruyere de Comte: This robust French classic is a wonderfully versatile raw cow's milk cheese with a fruity, spicy, full flavor, and is aged for a full 12 months.

This outstanding collection gathers three of Italy's most popular cheeses, and will prove invaluable in the 'Cucinas' of Italian f...ood lovers everywhere. The historic and diverse cheeses in this collection will enable you to recreate some of Italy's magical and time-honored dishes in the comfort of your own home. It includes: Piave: This cheese is named after the river Piave, whose source is found at Mount Peralba in Val Visdende, in the northernmost part of the province of Belluno, Italy. A winding course brings the river toward the bottom of the valley until it reaches the plain at the foot of the prealpi venete mountains in the province of Treviso. Piave cheese is born from the cheese making traditions of the land surrounding the ancient river, in which the curd is cooked and the cheese is aged until it is hard. The area surrounding the river is also where the milk is collected, and this special cheese is produced by a dairy cooperative called the Cooperativa Lattebusche. The cheese has a well-rounded, full-bodied flavor that increases with age and makes this cheese absolutely unique. Grana Padano Stravecchio Oro del Tempo: Stravecchio Oro del Tempo is a superior, 22-month aged Grana Padano produced by Agriform near Venice. This masterpiece compares beautifully with its better-known cousin Parmigiano Reggiano. The flavor of Stravecchio is intense and complex, with fruity overtones that evoke pineapple or strawberry, depending on the season. Like all precious things, every Stravecchio cheese is one of a kind, and each wheel is branded with a unique serial number. Agriform tests the quality of each wheel of Stravecchio every week until the twentieth month of aging. The end result of this rigorous testing process is that only the cheeses that deserve to become prime Grana Padano Stravecchio are stamped with the certificate of origin and guarantee. A true essential, Grana elevates a myriad of dishes, everything from antipasto to risotto, including dessert! (Try with drizzled honey or fine Balsamico). Pecorino Romano: Pecorino Romano is Italy's oldest cheese, dating back to ancient Roman times. This hard sheep's milk cheese is typically aged for one year and used as a grating cheese. Zerto Pecorino Romano, like most Pecorino Romano made today, is made in Sardinia where land and sheep are abundant. read more

We assembled this quartet from among the world's favorite hard cheeses. Such cheeses are perfect for grating over pasta, soup, Cae...sar salad, or any other culinary creation that calls for a little cheese. Parmigiano Reggiano comes from the adjacent regions of Parma and Reggio Emilia and is often called the "King Of All Cheeses". There are many reasons for this title, namely its savory flavor, its huge size (80 lb. wheel) and its history dating back to the tenth century. (8 oz) Grana Padano comes from Italy's Po Valley and is made from the same ancient recipe as Parmigiano Reggiano. Not quite as salty as Parmigiano, Grana has a fruity finish and slightly softer texture. Our version is called Stravecchio Oro del Tempo, meaning it is extra aged and hand-selected for quality. (8 oz) Argentine Reggianito is a more modern cheese, made from pasteurized cow's milk. Initially, it was a copy of a Italian Parmigiano Reggiano, but over time it has developed a personality all its own. (8 oz) Pecorino Romano: Originally from Rome, today most Romano is made on the island of Sardinia. Made from sheep's milk in giant 66 lb. wheels, Pecorino Romano not only grates nicely, it also makes perfect shavings for Carpaccio or tricolor salads.

Each cheese packs a punch of flavor that's sure to liven up any get-together, appetizer tray, or weekend cookout. This assortment includes: Florida: Bleu Sunshine: Produced in small wheels, Bleu Sunshine ages to perfection quickly and maintains the closest possible connection to the cow and farm. This natural rind, blue veined cheese superbly balances the complexities inherent within raw milk cheese. (8 oz) Georgia: Thomasville Tomme: This unpasteurized cow's milk cheese has a golden yellow color and mellow, buttery flavor. As a snack or part of the dessert course, it simply melts in your mouth. (8 oz) Virginia: Grayson: Surface ripened with a reddish-orange rind gives this cheese its characteristically strong smell, as well as a heavenly taste. Reminiscent of the aromatic Italian Taleggio or French Livarot, but with Meadow Creek Dairy's rich Jersey milk. (8 oz) Texas: Montasio Festivo: Bold and assertive with a nutty tinge, the depth of flavor in this cheese is remarkable. Montasio Festivo is rubbed with an ancho chile/olive oil paste to form a thin, dark-red rind, whilst also lending the cheese a spicy aroma.
