Cheese type for white truffle mac & cheese?

kerns125 | Nov 13, 2012 12:36 PM

I'm making a mac & cheese with white truffle oil for a dinner party this weekend and am looking for a white cheese that is a good melter and won't compete with the truffle. I see many recipes call for sharp cheddar but I was afraid that would be too sharp -- I'm thinking earthier for the truffle flavor. I made a trial run with just parmigiano reggiano and it was delicious but not creamy enough. Any suggestions? (As far as flavor goes, Midnight Moon from Cypress Grove is the perfect cheese, but not sure if it melts well....)
