Whole Foods prides itself on its large cheese selection; most stores having anywhere from 250 to 1000 varieties of cheeses. Many are organic and none contain any artificial colors or preservatives.
Last week I was given the opportunity to try a few of their cheese including the Cowgirl Creamery’s Buckaroo cheese. Buckaroo is a very mild in flavor, washed rind cheese that is aged only 60 days. Creamy with a slight nutty flavor this cheese melts well and made an excellent grilled cheese sandwich. I would highly recommend trying this cheese while it’s available.
The second cheese I tried was the Robusto, a Dutch gouda style cheese with a nice sharp flavor. This cheese can stand on it's own easily but would also be great as part of an antipasto plate. Unfortunately, when pairing the Cowgirl Buckaroo with the Robusto Gouda the mild flavor of the Buckaroo was lost.
If you’re a Whole Foods fan, like I am, be sure to stop by your local store this coming weekend and help them celebrate. From what I’ve been told there will be special events happening at all locations. While you’re there be sure to check out the cheese shop. Maybe even pick up some of the specialty cheeses to try for yourself. If you do, be sure to stop back here and let me know what you think.
