Truffle cheeses are highly exotic, aromatic cheeses that have been flavoured with fresh truffles, a highly valued fungus with an earthy, intricate flavour and aroma. Most truffle cheese has shavings of truffles in them but sometimes they can be flavoured with truffle oil as well. Italy and France are popular for their variety of truffle cheeses. Here is a look at some of the truffle cheeses:

  • Truffle Tremor – Made by Cypress Grove, California, it is a goat’s milk cheese with fragments of truffle right through the soft, creamy cheese.
  • Sottocenere – a semi-soft Italian cheese with flavours of licorice, nutmeg, coriander, cloves, cinnamon and fennel coated on to the rind.

  • Moliterno Black Truffle Pecorino – A raw sheep’s milk Sardinian cheese covered with black truffle paste. Tastes nutty, earthy and salty, similar to a pecorino. The distinctive layers of truffles can be seen throughout the cheese.

  • Boschetto al Tartufo - a semi-soft Italian cheese made with a blend of cow and sheep’s milk. Mild cheese dictated by flavours of white truffles.
  • Truffle and Salt Cheddar – From the Ballard Family Dairy and Cheese in Idaho, this is an aged, pasteurised cheddar flavoured with black truffle salt.

  • Truffle Gouda – Dutch Gouda sprinkled with black truffle. Tastes less sharp and sweet than other types of Gouda.

These cheeses taste delicious with condiments, for example Truffle and Porto Sauce, Black Truffle Mustard, Black Truffle Sherry Vinegar and many others.
