While it might be tempting to dig right in, we encourage you to thoroughly savor our cheeses. Scrutinize the appearance. Does it have the characteristics you’d expect from the particular kind of cheese? For instance, if you’re tasting gorgonzola, is it evenly veined? If it’s Parmesan, does it have a nicely formed rind?
