by Hofkäserei Kraus und Kaeskuche. Product of Germany.
Raw cow's milk cheese rubbed with flowers and aged for over 60 days.
We think the this is truly the most beautiful cheese in the world! Alp Blossom is a semi-hard cow’s milk cheese that is coated in a confetti of 13 difference dried summer flowers and herbs from the surrounding Alpine Mountain meadows. A delicate dusting of cornflower, marigold, rose petals, lavender, chervil, and marjoram (to name a few) make it the most well-dressed cheese you’ve ever set your eyes on!
Alp Blossom is produced at a cooperative creamery in Austria and made from milk of animals of small farms who have grazed in high mountain pastures. The cheese is aged for about 6 months and then shipped just across the border to Germany where the floral coating is applied by hand.
Similar to Comte but with a sweeter finish, the interior paste is beefy, savory, and nutty. A glass of Grüner Veltliner would be the perfect pair with this little beauty.
Ingredients: raw cow's milk, salt, cornflower, marigold, rose, lavender, parsley, rosemary, garlic, savory, sea salt, onion, oregano, paprika, cultures, rennet.
We ship perishable items in thermo-insulated cardboard boxes with reusable ice packs to insure that you food items arrive in good shape.
All cheeses we slice to order and wrap in cheese paper as we want you to enjoy original flavor of cheese - not damaged by vacuum or plastic.
All meats which require slicing we slice to order and lay it out on wax paper (deli-style) so it is easy to separate slices. Then we pack it in a plastic pouch with nitrogen purge (again, to make it easy to separate pieces we don't vacuum the meats but use commercial style food grade inert gas mix).

I shared this and your other cheeses. Everyone loved alp Blossom the best. I served it plain or they could spread a little Quince jam on a cracker along with the cheese. I personally like prosciutto or Bundnerfleish with the chews or an apple. Wonderful thanks to you. Thank you.
Beautiful. Will buy again.
Thank you for your kind review Mark! We are so happy that you are pleased with this cheese, it really is something special.
This is hands-down one of the best cheeses in the entire world. The flavor profile is unique. The texture is rich and creamy. Love this!
The best cheese I ever had. I never had cheese that was so tasty and delightful.
