Behold! For the first time ever, Di Bruno Bros. is offering the top 3 Best in Show winners at the American Cheese Society competition.
Harbison took the top prize, and is a perennial best seller at our stores.
This is a bloomy-rinded, spruce bark-wrapped jewel. Peel off the top and dip till the cows come home.
Calderwood took 2nd, and is another Jasper Hill Farms creation, in collaboration with Anne Saxelby.
It is, in fact, the Alpha Tolman you know and love, with toasted grass from the farm pressed to the rind, resulting in an amplified terroir. Only 24 wheels were produced, so get some while you can!
Avonlea came in 3rd and is a superb version of a clothbound cheddar, robust and earthy with a sharp finish.
Buy one, buy them all, and be sure to note the pairing suggestions on each cheese's page!
Additional pairing condiment suggestions included below.
