Black-tuffle cheeses

I’m usually one for intensely flavored cheese — strong blues, sharp aged cheddars. But lately I’ve fallen for two really nice, subtle cheeses. Both are truffled and in the $25 per pound neighborhood.

Above is Cypress Grove Chevre‘s Truffle Tremor (it’s akin to the company’s delicious Humbolt Fog, only with black truffles). The other is sottocenere, a firm yet wonderfully creamy cheese flecked with black truffles.

The trick is figuring out how to serve them, since both are easily overpowered. I solve this by ignoring my dinner and eating them on their own.
