Monthly Cheese Club
Most gourmet cheese clubs are international — offering a glimpse into the world of international culture and cuisine. Members will learn about obscure cheeses like Ardalena, a buffalo milk cheese from the central Romanian town of Transylvania, or taste authentic favorites like Italian asiago, French brie, and Dutch Gouda. With many different cheese clubs to choose from, there is sure to be one that satisfies every taste and budget.
Gourmet Cheese of the Month Club
Gourmet Cheese Club members receive three, half-pound blocks of freshly-cut extraordinary cheeses chosen from the finest boutique traditional cheese manufacturers the world has to offer. Partnered with Zingerman’s Delicatessen, the #1 Deli in the country according to Zagats, the gourmet experts select authentic and traditional farmhouse cheeses made from raw milk and natural ingredients. The goal of this club is to introduce members to extraordinary boutique cheeses that they might not discover on their own. Chosen for quality and creative interpretation, featured selections aren’t cut until they are ready to leave the “cheese cave” ensuring that every block is as close to farmhouse-fresh as possible. The Gourmet Cheese Club’s monthly newsletter will introduce you to the unique qualities of each cheese as well as the unique personalities that make them. Subscribe for anywhere from 2-12 months at a time. (more information)

Cheese of the Month Club
The Cheese of the Month Club from CheeseSupply.com features a economically-priced selection of fine cheeses. Each month, members will enjoy a wide variety of the highest quality and most popular cheeses they sell. Selections are seasonal, meaning they will only send cheese in the winter that tastes the best in the winter, and cheese in the summer that tastes best in the summer. Most cheeses will include serving ideas with information about wine and food pairings, and when applicable, a recipe as well. For the true cheese connoisseur, this is a must have! And, if you’re buying for a friend, it’s worth noting that this is one of the few cheese clubs that offers a month-to-month subscription. (more information)
Artisan Cheese of the Month Club
Although most American artisans studied and learned cheese making abroad, the influence of American culture is prevalent in their products. Le Petit Dejeuner, a cow-milk breakfast cheese, is made by the oldest cheese company in America based in Petaluma California. For instance, two small Nebraska farms decided to merge their skills and produced a distinctly American style Gouda, which is composed of goat and cow’s milk, called the Lancaster Duet. The Amazing Artisan Cheese of the month club is designed to delight the consumer who enjoys a traditional, unprocessed lifestyle. (more information)
