Oh, truffles. For thousands of years, you've inspired such passion, from ancient Mesopotamia to modern America. You've also inspired Trader Joe's Italian Truffle Cheese, which is definitely dear because it is good.
Our Italian Truffle Cheese is made with black truffles from central Italy's Umbria region. Made from pasteurized cow's milk, it's a young cheese, aged for 15 days. Its mild flavor makes it the ideal canvas for the concentrated truffle oil and black truffle pieces that are blended liberally throughout the cheese. The truffles' earthy, woody, musky aroma shines, and on the palate, it delivers with aplomb. Its semi-soft nature makes it an excellent melting cheese -- it's delicious melted over roasted meats, makes delightful omelets, and adds dynamic dimension to pasta or potato dishes. It also makes a bold statement on a cheese tray.
We're selling Trader Joe's Italian Truffle Cheese in random-weight pieces of about eight ounces for $11.99 a pound, a tremendous value for this type of cheese. You'll find it in our cheese case.
