October's Cheeses of the Month

Cheeses from Coast to Coast

There are so many amazing domestically produced artisan cheeses that it’s impossible to pick a favorite. Kowalski’s truly values the partnerships we’ve formed within the Specialty Cheese community, which is why we are dedicating the month of October to spotlighting a number of different American-produced cheeses. Be sure to swing into your local Kowalski’s Specialty Cheese Department and have one of our Cheesemongers help you find your newest domestically produced favorite.

St. Stephen

St. Stephen

Produced by Four Fat Fowl in Upstate New York, St. Stephen is a beautifully handcrafted triple cream that bursts with buttery and milky overtones. A smooth, silky interior made from all-natural Jersey cow’s milk and fresh Jersey cream creates the perfect texture, while the soft, bloomy rind adds an earthy flavor with nutty undertones. St. Stephen will leave you wanting more to share with a friend and a glass of bubbly.

Kowalski's Signature Wild Stag

Wild Stag

Kowalski’s Signature Wild Stag Cheddar is an 18-month bandage-wrapped Cheddar developed exclusively for Kowalski’s by Chris Gentine of Artisan Cheese Exchange and Master Cheesemaker Kerry Henning! The two were discussing the seemingly lost art of the old legacy cultures used to ripen aged Cheddars and what they could do to recreate the style. The result is this amazingly balanced limited-release Cheddar that explodes with flavors of butterscotch and toffee on your palate. Get it while you can, as supply is limited!

Capriole Flora

Capriole Flora

Capriole Flora from southern Indiana is a delicate, bloomy-rinded round that’s grassy and as light as a marshmallow when young. As it ages, its flavors intensify, and the texture becomes denser and creamier with a more pronounced cream line and ashed rind.

Divina Caramelized Onion Jam

Divina Caramelized Onion Jam

Deeply savory, delightfully sweet and so delicious you’ll enjoy it by the spoonful! We love onion jam slathered on grilled cheese, burgers, roasted meats and grilled veggies. For a simple onion soup, mix the jam with beef broth and top with melted Gruyère.
