Melkbus Truffle Gouda is oh-so-creamy and dotted with bits of real black truffles. Melkbus Truffle Gouda starts as a traditional Raw Milk Farmer Cheese, but just before the pressing and shaping of the cheese, shavings of real Italian black truffles are generously sprinkled throughout the curd. The cheese itself is actually quite mild, allowing the truffle flavor to really shine. Not only does it look beautiful on a cheese plate, but it also shreds and melts easily, so it’s very easy to add to recipes. How decadent would a truffled omelet or truffled mac and cheese or risotto be?
