Five Times The Cheese, Five Times the Fun
What is better than one fine English cheese. Five. Better still - five individual English cheeses layered together in one wedge. That's what we call a Quintupled English Cheese. Visually and gustatorily stunning, Trader Joe's Quintupled English Cheese features five famous "territorial" cheeses: Lancashire, Red Leicester, Cheshire, Double Gloucester and Cheddar.
Made from cow's milk collected on local farms, not more than 12 miles from the creamery in Lancashire, each cheese is crafted by hand according to traditional methods, and carefully aged for varying periods to achieve their signature styles. Then the cheeses are layered, one on top of another. The effect is dramatic, with hues ranging from almost white to rich orange. And the mingling of tastes is tantalizing, with subtle differences between each layer. The overall experience is mellow, creamy and slightly tangy. It's a cheese plate marvel (perfect for entertaining), and also makes a great addition to sandwiches (it makes a pretty grilled cheese), and adds layers of interest to quiches and casseroles. Only around for a limited time, enjoy our Quintupled English Cheese for $8.99 per pound.
