You love truffle cheese? Or you know someone that does? Then this specially curated truffle cheese box is perfect for you. Be it for your Christmas cheese offering or as a gift to that someone special, this cheese box is as unique as it is delicioius.
The Truffle Cheese Box contains the following three truffle cheeeses:
Trüffelperle, Switzerland, ca. 200g
This full fat milk cheese is made in a family owned dairy in the Northeastern part of Switzerland. During production black Italian truffles are added giving this creamy cheese a distinct flavour profile. The truffle comes through distinctively and balances the creaminess of this thermised cheese perfectly. It’s surely something every truffle fan will love.
Delice aux Truffes, France, 110g
Triple cream cheese from France with black truffles. This is a decadent, festive truffle infused triple cream satisfying even the most snobbish cheese eater. Delicate yet bold and lush, this French beauty is something else.
Onkaparinga Truffle Triple Cream, South Australia, 180g
Milk sourced from South Australian, local dairies is used to make a triple cream cheese with a luxuriously rich texture. A modest amount of black truffle is mixed through the curd to create a gentle truffle flavour and aroma that blends seamlessly with the cheese without overpowering it. The white bloomy rind is lovely and fine, and the interior is a creamy ivory dotted with small black flecks of truffle.
Please note that any additional cheese ordered in the same shopping basket will be combined with the Xmas cheese box and sent out all together in the week of 11th December (Update: or 18th December if ordered after 10th December) to arrive before Christmas. Further details can be found here.
How we wrap your cheese
Freshness of your cheese is important to us. That's why - unless noted differently in the description - we package all of our cheese in vacuum bags to help minimize travel impacts. However, we understand that some of you prefer cheese being wrapped in cheese wrap. This option is available to you for a small fee (it takes more time to package the cheese this way, that's why we charge you a little bit more). Unless specifically noted in the description, all cheese will generally have a best before date of at least 14 days, vacuum packed cheese generally about 2 months. Please note that with cheese this is often only a guidance date and does not necessarily mean the cheese will be of lesser quality beyond that date. In fact many soft(er) cheeses are best kept close to or until after that date for maximum ripeness.
How the cheese gets to you
All Alpine Express cheese are shipped in environmentally friendlier, insulated cardboard boxes. The cheese is bolstered with recycled packing paper & kept cold with food grade ice gel pack(s). It is shipped the fastest possible service, usually Australia Post Express. See Australia Post's Express Delivery Estimator (origin is 'Brisbane Metro'). From time to time we may choose a different shipping provider depending on speed of service, costs and other factors.
Unless noted otherwise, all cheese boxes are sent on Mondays with an order cut-off time at 9am (Sydney time) that day. You will get a tracking number to follow your parcel's progress.
