Recipes



Background

To get the purest flavor, Truffle Noire is based on a centuries-old recipe for a smooth, buttery Gouda.

Then real, imported Italian truffles are shredded and mixed with the curd.

The cheese is only aged a short time, ensuring a fresh, creamy cheese to show off the intense, earthy flavor of truffles.
