Dear Fellow Artisan Cheese Lover,
I’ve been passionate about artisanal cheese long before we founded this company nearly 20 years ago, and have led The Gourmet Cheese of the Month Club’s™ selection process from the start. We travel internationally working closely with cheesemakers who experiment with slight changes to their process and raw ingredients to perfect their cheeses. Each month, we select 3 different farmhouse cheeses made from pure and natural, quality ingredients. You’ll enjoy:
- Professionally Selected Hand-Crafted, Artisan Cheeses
- An International Variety in Every Shipment
- Hand-Cut Selections That Have Been Carefully Aged
- Detailed Tasting Notes and Cheesemaker Profiles
- Flexible Gift Ordering — Personalized Gift Message
You’ll discover cheeses you wouldn't easily find on your own since we buy each from its place of origin; we look for Brie from the Île-de-France, north of Paris, and Leicester from English farms with small herds of pedigree Holstein cows. Each selection is freshly cut just prior to shipping from wheels or blocks. It’s quite labor intensive and you’ll appreciate the difference it makes.
I stand by every cheese we feature and know you’ll be impressed with the quality delivered in each shipment.

The Gourmet Cheese of the Month Club: Each month, our members receive three, half-pound freshly cut blocks of extraordinary cheeses selected from boutique manufacturers around the world. You might receive a Gaperon, originating in France during the 14th Century, an authentic Lancashire by Ruth Kirkham, and an Italian Taleggio matured in the caves of Valsassina...all in one shipment! Each shipment is also accompanied by our informative and entertaining newsletter.
Our Professional Selection Process Ensures Quality, Variety & Freshness
Our product selection and packaging process is the foundation of our success. We work with Zingerman's Delicatessen®, which has been selling artisanal cheese since 1982 and was rated the #1 Deli in the country by Zagats. Together, we look for raw milk, natural ingredient, farmhouse cheeses that you wouldn't easily find on your own and then buy each from its place of origin... We look for Brie from the Ile de France, north of Paris.
Selected for prominence, creative interpretation, and quality, each selection is freshly cut just prior to shipping from huge wheels or blocks. For Antique Emmentaler, that means breaking apart 200-pound rounds that are nearly 4 feet in diameter! Every piece has a slightly different shape and may taste slightly different from a cut taken from another part of the wheel. It is quite labor intensive, but that's what's required when dealing with the real thing. Our strictly controlled "cheese cave" optimizes temperature, light and humidity to ensure featured selections are properly stored, tended and matured.
