Marco Polo - It's a cheese?

DonShirer | Aug 22, 2013 04:00 PM

When I stopped at my favorite fromagerie this week, the proprietress, knowing I like to try her new varieties, recommended "Marco Polo", a cheese from Beechers in Washington packed with Madagascar peppercorns (supposedly in homage to the spices associated with the famous explorer).

Now I'm not usually a fan of cheeses with non-cheesy adulterations, especially those whose names sound like a swimming pool game, but I must admit that the peppery taste of this semi-firm cheese was intriguing. (It also melts nicely on a hamburger!) So if you like that sort of thing, you might want to search it out.
