Long known and respected for its chocolates, Belgium produces as many distinct types of cheese as does France. Many of its 300+ varieties are made in very small quantities and are not exported out of the country. The examples we do get, however, are quite impressive. This unique assortment includes three of our favorites:
Please note that any item temporarily out of stock will be substituted with a similar item of equal value.
- Chimay Trappiste with Beer: From the trappist monks of Scourmont, this semi-hard pressed cheese is washed in Chimay ale and matured for six weeks. Made from fine, fresh, creamy milk, it has a trademark creaminess and flavor. (8 oz)
- Chevagne: A surprisingly mild and creamy goat's milk cheese produced by the Passendale Dairy. Made with goat's milk of the highest quality, this smooth cheese is delicious sliced and served on a dark, nutty bread; shaved over salads; or as part of a cheese board. (8 oz)
- Passendale: A semi-soft cow's milk cheese, Passendale impressed us as a sure hit the first time we tasted it. We loved its delicious flavor and sweet bouquet and found it to have universal appeal. You will feel comfortable serving this cheese to anyone, as it will not offend those with basic tastes, yet will still wow the connoisseurs. (8 oz)
- Oud Brugge: This cheese is Belgium's interpretation of a fine aged Gouda. Nutty, creamy and delicious, it is best served with a robust beer or ale. (8 oz)
