Legends of Cheese Collection

Quick Overview:

OK, this one is special. The Legends of Cheese Collection features iconic cheeses, produced in limited quantities by the finest cheesemakers in the world. Each cheese represents the best in its class and is hand-selected for quality. 
 
A portion of each sale is donated to the Daphne Zepos Teaching Award, dedicated to growing a squad of cheese professionals committed to teaching about the culture, history and techniques of making, aging and selling cheese.
 

Includes:
  • Marcel Petite Comte – From the renowned Fort St. Antoine aging vault, these wheels are selected based on flavor, not on age or price, unlike most Comte imported into the U.S. Jason Hinds travels to the Fort up to 10 times a year to select wheels that will arrive at the Di Bruno Bros. counter at the peak of ripeness, when all of the beguiling flavors – hazelnuts, heavy cream, fried onions, spring berries, cut grass, wet earth and straw – start to come to life. 

  • 1605 Manchego – Produced from manchega sheep raised on a diet of home-grown native grains, Finca Sierra de la Solana’s Manchego is one of the last PDO cheeses produced with a natural rind. This allows the cheese to breathe; the cut cheese has a clean aroma, smelling of hay and almond. While most industrial manchegos are one-note, 1605 Manchego sings with sweet juicy notes of pineapple and warm flavors of toasted brioche. 

  • L’Amuse Gouda – Betty and Martin Koster have a deep connection with some of the finest Dutch opleggers (affineurs) in Holland, thanks to their magical cheese shop in Amsterdam, which was established in 1989. Betty exports a handful of expertly-aged cheese to the U.S., including one of our favorites, L’Amuse Gouda. L’Amuse has all of the characteristics of a great gouda: distinctive roasted hazelnut and burnt caramel flavor, with a velvety texture. 

  • Cravero Parmigiano – Giorgio Cravero’s family has selected and aged Parmigiano Reggiano in Bra, Italy since 1855. The milk for our Parmigiano Reggiano, which Giorgio selects and ages for us, comes exclusively from the high fields (700 meters above sea level) of Benedello di Pavullo, where the grasses and flowers the cows feed on are very diverse. The cheesemaker makes only 8 wheels a day, yielding a cheese that represents the terroir of the region better than any other Parmigiano we’ve ever tasted. This is a dessert cheese, a snacking cheese and one to treasure – it is not a Parmigiano for grating!

  • Di Bruno Bros. Imported Jam (3.9 oz) - Use our jam to pair with cheese or as a glaze for roast pork or chicken, or as a delicious condiment for cakes, jelly rolls, tartlets & pies.

  • Di Bruno Bros. Crostini (7.04 oz) - The absolute perfect vessel for the cheese, meat, or dip of your choosing. Twice-baked for maximum crunch and all-natural with an old-world recipe, we could hardly improve upon our classic to-to cracker..

  • Eclat PHL Pennsylvania Dutch Pretzel Chocolate Bar - A delicious nod to PA Dutch immigrants who brought these doughy twists stateside in the 1800's. Almost as good as snacking on a sack of chocolate-covered pretzels!

  • Formaticum Cheese Storage Bags - Maintain the freshness and flavor of your favorite cheeses. These easy-to-use bags are porous enough to let wedges breathe while retaining humidity to prevent drying out in the fridge. Simplify clean-up and keep leftovers longer!

Your order is guaranteed to be handled with care and shipped with an eye toward ensuring the products arrive as fresh as possible. All of our perishables are packed in insulated, heat-resistant packaging with safe, re-usable ice packs. If you should also order dry goods, we neatly pack them around the other materials, enclosed in a sturdy, corrugated container.

It generally takes one business day to receive and process your order. Shipping speed selected at checkout applies to the time in transit only. The delivery clock starts once the package is picked up by our carriers, not once you submit your order, and there are times when our fulfillment team may hold certain orders to process and ship after the weekend in order to ensure product viability.

    We sent the Legends Cheese Collection to our daughter and her fiancé for Thanksgiving week. Our tradition is a cheese assortment from you but they couldn’t be with us so this was next best. They loved it! Nicely packaged and a great assortment of flavors, the high quality we have come to expect from Di Bruno Bros.
