Burrata
Hamden, CT

Liuzzi Cheese develops their Burrata authentically with a recipe that dates back over 5 generations. Their semi soft “Pasta Filata” cheese is made with Fior di latte cows milk cultures. They then fill their Burrata with fresh Stracciatella cream. This is often served with a sprinkle of salt and drizzle of olive oil. Scoop up the stracciatella cream with slices of Italian bread or spread the inside of the cheese onto crackers. Serve up with fresh tomatoes and basil, or it’s also a decadent and delicious topping for pizza.

ABOUT LIUZZA CHEESE:

Liuzzi Cheese started back in 1826 in the Puglia region of Italy with their founder, Pasquale (Lino) Liuzzi.  He had a dream to establish his own enterprise, producing premium quality cheeses and fine foods. Lino, along with his brother Nicola, eventually moved to the United States and opened up a modest store, Liuzzi Market, in North Haven, CT.  Since then, their family continues to serve the local community with the most outstanding products this side of Italy.  Their Artisan cheese is made with the highest quality and standards using only fresh ingredients from local farms.  All products are made without the artificial growth hormone (rBST) which guarantees the freshest, healthiest options for your family.  Their customers are still the bedrock of their accomplishments.

Clothbound Cheddar
Greensboro, VT

Clothbound is an approachable but complex natural-rind, bandaged cheddar with a crumbly texture and nutty aroma. The flavor is deeply savory and slightly tangy with caramel sweetness to the finish. Clothbound has a signature tang and caramel nuttiness with a rustic crystalline texture that becomes creamy on the palate. This savory-sweet balance of flavor makes a perfect match for charcuterie, apple jelly, or a rich chestnut honey. Pair with an off-dry sparkling apple cider, hoppy ale, or an oaked Cabernet Sauvignon. Clothbound is an award winning cheese, including American Cheese Society’s 2006 Best in Show.

ABOUT JASPER HILL FARM:

Jasper Hill is a working dairy farm with an on-site creamery in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. Jasper Hill is driven to be the standard bearer of quality and innovation in the artisan cheese industry, while promoting their regional taste of place. Their underground aging facility maximizes the potential of cheeses made by the creamery, as well as those made by other local producers. Leftover whey from the cheesemaking process is fed to heritage breed pigs, roaming the woodlands beyond the cows’ pasture. Their mission is to make the highest possible quality products in a way that supports Vermont’s working landscape.
