Sottocenare

This is our most famous and delicious truffle cheese. An Italian cow’s milk semi-soft cheese, Sottocenare has a nutty and complext flavor, enough moisture to melt wonderfully, and is generally an all-around great eating cheese. When we get a new wheel in, its like a mini-birthday, it comes wrapped up like a present. Sometimes Michael takes the string it comes wrapped in and wears it over his chest like a sash all day. He says it protects him.

Robiola

A cow, sheep, and goat milk cheese from the Piedmont region of Italy, this soft rind cheese starts off very creamy and becomes thicker and takes on a more chevre-log-like consistency in time. Mild and complex, it complements many fruits and meats, perfect for those LA spring nights, after work with a glass of wine and purple skies above you, the horizon punctuated by faraway helicopters.
