- Jamon Iberico by Fermin: Popularly known as the Pata Negra or Black Hoof, the Iberico roots for wild herbs, fallen acorns, and edible roots. The resulting meat is swirled with high levels of flavorful natural fats, for which this pig has gained notoriety. (2 oz)
- Salami Barolo by Creminelli: There are a lot of famous wines from Italy, but none of them are as respected as the Piedmont's most famous red: Barolo. The richness of the Barolo lingers in this already robustly flavored artisan salami creating a truly complex, bursting flavor that is difficult to replicate and impossible to forget. (7 oz)
- Bayley Hazen Blue by Jasper Hill Farm: The paste of a Bayley Hazen is drier than most blues and the penicillium roqueforti takes a back seat to an array of flavors that hint at nuts and grasses and in the odd batch, licorice. Though drier and crumblier than most blues, its texture reminds one of chocolate and butter. (7.5 oz)

- Carmody by Bellwether Farms: Cheesemaker Liam Callahan began working on this California cheese by using a pecorino recipe as a starting point and making changes in response to the flavors and texture of the cheese from his farm’s cows.
