What will I receive in each shipment?

Three, ½ pound Artisan Cheeses, offering a variety of textures and flavors from around the world. You might receive an authentic Lancashire by Ruth Kirkham, a Gaperon, originating in France in 14th century, and an Italian Taleggio matured in the caves of Valsassina...all in one shipment! Each shipment also includes our newsletter, In Pursuit of Cheese, which contains detailed tasting notes, cheese profiles, farmhouse histories, and serving suggestions.

The best way to see exactly what you get each month is to review our current featured cheeses and next year's featured cheeses.

Why should I choose The Gourmet Cheese of the Month Club?

We've partnered with Zingermans®, the #1 Rated Deli in the Country by Zagat's Gourmet, whose buyers travel internationally working directly with artisan cheesemakers selecting and refining specific batches. We work closely with them to select farmhouse cheeses made from pure and natural, quality ingredients. You'll discover international variety in every shipment as it will contain three distinctly different cheeses, offering an enormous range of aromas, textures and flavors. And you'll enjoy farmhouse cheeses that have been hand-cut from huge blocks or wheels just prior to shipping.

Does someone have to be available to sign for the deliveries?

All shipments are sent via Federal Express. Due to the perishable nature of the product, shipments are sent without a signature required to avoid excessive periods in the carrier's possession. It is therefore very important that you ship to a location where someone will be there to receive it. Many of our members ship to work locations or a neighbor who is often home.
