Melkbus® 149 Truffle
Melkbus raw milk cheeses are a return to Dutch cheese making traditions. Dutch for Milk Can, each of our Melkbus Cheeses are made on individual family farms outside the village of Gouda. Historically, these farms were identified by a number which was imprinted on each milk can to be transported to the creamery for cheese making. Today, we celebrate this process by reviving the stamped milk can tradition and honoring the farms with their numbers in the name of our cheeses.
Melkbus 149 Truffle starts as a traditional “Boerenkaas” or Raw Milk Farmer Cheese. However, just prior to pressing and shaping of the cheese, shavings of Italian Black Truffles are generously sprinkled throughout the the curd, making it truly special. After 10 weeks of aging, earthy flavors from the truffles are infused throughout the cheese along with notes of walnuts.
