CCF - Hooligan (priced per 1/2 lb) - Cow's Milk Cheese
Made in 1.3 lb wheels, cut pieces weighs approximately 3/4 - 1 lb each
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.
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).
