There are a lot of foods that I enjoy, but my all-time favourite food ever since I was a child is cheese. I quite literally used to buy a block of cheese and eat the entire thing as if it was a giant chocolate bar. And there is no type of cheese that I don’t enjoy, either. Havarti, Feta, Cheddar, Halloumi, Gruyere, Ricotta…I love them all! Recently Tre Stelle cheese contacted me and offered me the chance to try some of its different types of cheese and it goes without saying that I leapt at the chance.
I received a beautiful Tre Stelle cheese board and coupons for Tre Stelle cheese to review. The hardest part, for me, was deciding what kind of cheese to buy! After a lot of deliberation, I decided to test out the Dofino Havarti with Dill, the Castello Traditional Blue Cheese and the Tre Stelle Parmigiano Reggiano. My boys aren’t quite as fond of cheese as I am but they do enjoy a plate of cheese, crackers and fruit as an afternoon snack so I prepared a platter for the three of us so that we could all try out the different varieties Tre Stelle had to offer.
The Dofino Havarti with Dill was absolutely delicious. I love the flavour of dill and so I expected to be a fan of this cheese. I wasn’t disappointed. The slightly soft, mild cheese pairs with the dill wonderfully and the boys enjoyed this cheese just as much as I did. The Castello Traditional Blue was equally good in a totally different way and I really liked its creamy texture and sharp, salty flavour. Not too surprisingly, neither of my boys is terribly fond of blue cheese, so they both passed on this one.
But my favourite of the three cheeses I tried was the Parmigiano Reggiano. It was very similar in taste to ungrated Parmesan cheese with a slightly nutty flavour and when paired with the sweetness of the grapes and apples I served with it, it was absolutely addictive. Tre Stelle cheese can be purchased at grocery stores across Canada and if you like trying different cheeses, you’ll love all the gourmet varieties the company has to offer.
