Kowalski's Apricot Mostarda and Kowalski's Pear Mostarda are new offerings in the Imported Cheese Department. Crafted in-house and exclusive to Kowalski's, they have just the right balance of sweet, heat and spice. They'll be a hit no matter what you pair them with. That said, our Cheese Specialists are recommending these stellar combinations:
- Kowalski's Pear Mostarda with Northern Lights Blue and Mother Rucker's Lemon Cookie Brittle (shown); Black Pepper BellaVitano and Pilsner Flats; or Rosemary Asiago and Rustic Bakery Sea Salt Sourdough Flats
- Kowalski's Apricot Mostarda with Brie Ermitage and water crackers; Aged Havarti and pretzel chips; or Barber's 1833 Vintage Cheddar and Porter Flats
An Italian specialty, mostarda is made with fruits or vegetables in a spicy, mustard-flavored syrup that gives the condiment its name. Mostardas can be sweet or savory and are great with both mild and strong cheeses with salty, peppery, herbaceous notes.
