A star for your Buffet is born! Compose your own “Cheesemas Tree” at home for friends and family.
The tree consists of three of our raw milk cheeses (a minimum of 1.3kg)- each one vacuum sealed on its own and a golden “Merry Cheesemas” star with the names of the cheeses to top your tree.
Simply add your personal touch and decorate the cheesewheels with e.g. rosemary branches and chrismas decoration to have the special christmas look.
The base of the tree is our “drunken” Pecorino Cheese aged for several weeks in the leftover pomace from wineproduction. No worries, you won’t get drunk from eating it though! The cheese get’s a slight fruitiness towards the crust, but we are very careful to not overwhelm the original “cheese aroma” by the grapeskins. We recommend to not eat the crust, since the grapeskins have a bit of crunch.
The middle part of the tree is our classic semiaged Pecorino, probably the cheese representing best a Pecorino from Tuscany.
The top of the tree is instead a cheese that we have created only for this occasion a mild goat cheese that is still a bit soft inside, and outside is covered by bran – adding a slight sweetness to the cheese.
Our Casale Cheesemas Tree includes:
– 1x wheel of Pecorino aged under pomace
– 1x wheel of Pecorino semiaged
– 1x square of goatcheese aged under bran (special edition)
– 1x golden star “Merry Cheesemas” for tree top
Each cheese is sealed under vacuum, so you can use them also separately.
