Tarentaise

Hooligan

Hooligan is a ripe washed-rind cheese with a soft creamy interior and a gorgeous orange rind, aged for two months

Drunk Monk

Hooligan rubbed in brown ale from Connecticut's Willimantic Brewing Company, the Drunk Monk is pungent and ripe with a slight hint of peanut butter on the aftertaste

Vivace Bambino

Vivace is sweet, chewy and moist, a medium mild cheese with a flavor like Swiss Emmental, aged 2 to 3 months

Womanchego

Womanchego is aged 3 to 4 months, making it more similar to a young Manchego than the aged version most commonly found in cheese shops. The flavor is medium mild and a tad sweet with hints of fruit and nuts

Dutch Farmstead

Creamy and mild with a slight nutty undertone and a rich, round, well-balanced flavor, the Dutch Farmstead is a variation on Gouda.

Black Ledge Blue

A natural rind blue with a gorgeous yellow color speckled with blue. Moderately creamy and medium strong with a rich, slightly earthy finish.

Cured Meats

 Prosciutto

Thinly sliced prosciutto balanced in flavor between sweet and savory

Hot Coppa

Seasoned with chili pepper and paprika. It is similar to prosciutto, but it is derived from the shoulder rather than the ham

Salame Finocchiona

Salame Finocchiona is noted for its use of fennel seeds. Dry aged for 3-4 months. This sausage has a spicy flavor and is served in thick slices

Sopressata

Sopressata is Italian dry cured pork salami, flavored with red chili peppers, wine, and dried fennel

Country Pate

Hand crafted pate of duck and pork

Jamón ibérico

The texture is smooth and tender, the flavor soft and full of fat that dissolves in the palate.

Lardo

Robust flavor and mildly studded with fats for a superb texture.
