Trader Joe's Alta Badia Cheese
Once in a while, I pick a cheese basically at random from the extensive selection at Trader Joe's. This was one. I think it was the featured selection for a while. I had never heard of Alta Badia cheese. The cashier noticed it in my basket and commented that it was really good and I'd love it. This doesn't mean much, because I'm pretty sure TJ's cashiers are instructed to make such a comment on at least one item in every customer's haul. But in this case he was right. I do love it.
It's sweet and creamy, a lot like Gruyere. It slices easily and neatly. I ate half of this block in one sitting.
Will I buy it again?
Absolutely. It's a new favorite--so good that it's flirting with Top Ten status.
