CCF - Hooligan (Full Wheel priced per lb.) - Cow Milk Cheese
AWARD WINNER! Hooligan is our signature ""stinky"" cheese that many food lovers consider to be our best variety. Hooligan was awarded the top prize in the Outstanding Dairy category from Gallo Family Vineyards 2005 Gold Medal Awards, and it was selected by both Saveur magazine and Slow Food USA as one of the top American cheeses. Made in 1.5 - 2 lb wheels, Hooligan is a ripe washed-rind cheese with a soft creamy interior and a gorgeous orange rind. Hooligans are bathed twice a week in brine to encourage the growth of pungent, surface-ripening bacteria. The Hooligan melts beautifully for a fabulously stinky toasted cheese (a bit like raclette). Sold whole in small wheels with basket lines on the rind.
