Look for "Truffle Tremor" cheese

BostonZest | Jan 30, 200803:15 PM

A week or so ago I was at the Whole Foods on River street in Cambridge choosing a couple of cheeses when the young woman suggested I try Cypress Grove Truffle Tremor. She gave me a taste, and I was hooked.

From what I've read it's fairly new from Cypress Grove and it's Humbolt Fog without the ash but with truffles!

Yesterday they cut into a new wheel for me at Westland Ave Whole Foods, and it was perfection- flaky goaty center, buttery ripe layer near the bloomy rind.

If you are near either store stop in and get a taste-- it is in the case at both places and it is pricy (23.99 lb) but you only need a little to add character to a cheese plate.

I wrote it up for my blog so I called Formaggio and Russos to see whether they had it available. Formaggio in Cambridge said that they don't carry Cypress Grove and Russos does carry the brand but said, "not yet" about the Truffle Tremor. (Photos and a few other opinions other than mine are included with my blog post.)

Let me know if you find it elsewhere in the area, I have a few friends who would adore this and I'd love to have a few more places to recommend." And, I hope that Russo's may have it at a lower price.

Happy truffle hunting!
