Vasterbotten Spotting (Swedish cheese)

bothrops_asper | Feb 23, 2008 08:03 PM

After looking all over the city for Vasterbotten cheese, my wife found it right under our noses at Sahadi's. If you haven't tried it, Vasterbotten is a Swedish cow's milk cheese that's kind of a cross between an extra sharp cheddar and a Parmigiano Reggiano in flavor and texture. Give it a taste if you can find it.

Thanks Sahadi's for getting what Murray's, Fairway, Whole Foods, Stinky, and everywhere else I've asked about Vasterbotten couldn't or wouldn't. Let's just hope it's not a one time deal. Who knows, maybe this summer they'll be stacking cans of Surstromming...
