Big John's Cajun

Big John's Cajun, named after the local chef John Dearmin, is a cheddar-style, cheese made with pasteurized Jersey milk. It is produced by Beehive Cheese Company in Utah, United States. Canola oil is applied on a one day old cheese, then a mixture of Cajun meat with cayenne pepper is hand-rubbed and then allowed to mature in humidity controlled facility. Fully aged cheese is spicy in flavour and rich, smooth, creamy in texture. It pairs well with full-bodied red wines, champagne, or a fruity wheat beer. It can be shaved on salad or melted over a burger. 

The cheese has won several awards including 2nd place at the 2009 American Cheese Society in 2009, 3rd place at the 2011 and 2012 American Cheese Society in 2011, 2012.
