Raclette - cow's milk semi soft cheese, cut cheese - 1 lb/454 gr, France.
White to light yellow paste with small holes, supple and firm, uncooked and pressed. The name of this Savoie's cheese derives from racler, meaning to scrape, and describes how it is eaten in the mountains. The cheese is cut and heated on a spit so that it melts and can be scraped off with a knife. It is usually accompanied by potatoes boiled in their skins and pickles. Its paste is slightly hard but melts well, with a light smell of mold when warm, and full milky flavor.
Compliments: Goes well served over boiled potatoes or with gherkins.<... more »

Malvarosa - sheep’s milk semi-soft cheese - 4 lb/1.8 kg, Spain.
To save the nearly extinct Guirra sheep, Valencian cheesemaker Enrique began producing this Manchego-like wheel. Frankly, we think it blows Manchego away. The paste is firm, but far more buttery, and incredibly rich and sweet. More like the popular favorite Pyrenees Brebis, this one is compulsively edible, down to its nearly butterscotch finish. Aged for a minimum of three months; careful cheesemaking and gentle pasteurization preserve an enormous hit of succulent flavor. A beautiful Valencian cheese produced from Guirra sheep's milk, a revived, almost extinct breed of shee... more »
