Monashee Gold cheese with black summer Truffles. Truffle makes a stellar combination with cheese. It originated in southern France and northern Italy, where this particularly flavourful mushroom found its way in the gourmet cooking world. During the Middle Ages it was exclusively kept for nobility–inspired the expression “Garlic of the Rich”. Today, Truffle remains a specialty food item. It is popular on menus all over the world. A perfect cheese to pair with wine and grapes, also a wonderful creamy addition to pasta dishes.
