What Are Semi-Soft Cheeses?
Many truly splendid kinds of cheese fall into the category of semi-soft but what is it exactly? Semi-soft cheeses can be best categorized by their water content which sits between 36%-45%. This variety in moisture leads to a range of cheeses that vary widely in texture and firmness. This gives us soft and creamy options like Pico, yielding and crumbly blues like Maytag, and even the almost firm and sliceable Cacio di Roma. With such a wide range of densities, these cheeses are sure to accommodate almost any dish. Our semi-soft cheeses also run the gamut when it comes to flavor, from milder favorites like Havarti and Manchego to more pungent choices like Gorgonzola and Shropshire Blue cheese. No matter what your preference, we have flavors to suit every palate.
Semi-soft cheeses are some of the most versatile cheeses available, perfect for slicing and serving on the classic cheese board but also great for melting on sandwiches, gratins, or hearty casseroles. From the first course to the last, any dish can benefit from our premium selection of gourmet cheeses!
