Cheese of the Day: April 17 – Fiscalini Bandaged Cheddar

 

Cheddar Time on Monday Features Fiscalini Bandaged Cheddar – Presented by ACS CCP® Marcella Wright

When a Cheddar wins World’s Best Cheddar at the World Cheese Awards (in London, no less) three times… well… it must be a great Cheddar.

Fiscalini Bandaged Cheddar is made in California in the heart of the San Joaquin Valley, the home of “happy cows”. Mariano Gonzalez, the head cheesemaker at Fiscalini, cut his teeth in Vermont at Shelburne Farms where he made his first cheddar. In 2001, he joined the Fiscalini Family and with John and Heather has made their bandaged cheddar into a world class cheese.

The facts:

Farmstead made

Made with Raw Milk from the 3000 Holstein cows on the Fiscalini Farm

Animal Rennet

Aged at least 16 months; turned daily during its first two months

Cloth-wrapped and rubbed with lard

Truckle weighs about 56 pounds

Earthy, nutty and slightly sweet, this cheddar is reminiscent of the traditional English Cheddars that inspired Mariano to create his own award-winning cheddar.
