Il Truffelino comes to us from Somerdale, a leading exporter of some of the best and most unique English cheeses available. Il Truffelino is beautiful, with a thick black wax mantle and pale yellow interior dotted with bits of real black summer truffles; but this cheese isn’t just a looker, it’s decadently delicious, too! It combines the creamy texture of a classic English cheddar with the complex flavor of the truffles. This rich flavorful cheese adds a meaty, earthy element to any cheese plate, and would be equally as good on an out-of-this-world grilled cheese, or melted on top of a burger!
