Many families are concerned with the type of food that they consume. The Rumiano Cheese Company offers an organic, non-GMO cheese in their line of cheeses. Building on their father's recipes and cheese making techniques, the company launched the Rumiano Family Organic line. This cheese was the first one in the US market to received a non-GMO product verification.
On a recent cheese Sunday, our family tried some Rumiano Cheese. Since I wanted to compare an organic cheese with a non-organic cheese, we sampled two Rumiano Cheeses, an organic Monterey Jack and a traditional artisan jalapeno flavored cheese. While the flavors themselves were varied, the consistency of the cheese was similar. Both cheeses had a depth of flavor and a smooth, creamy consistency.
Here's a little background on the classic Monterey Jack. A California original, Monterey Jack was originally made by Franciscan monks of Monterey, California during the 1800’s and later marketed by businessman David Jacks, hence the name Monterey Jack.
Sitting around the patio, we found that the Monterey Jack had an approachable, mild flavor. The semi-hard cheese with the creamy texture works on a simple cracker or with a spicy salami. It will become part of our weekly cheese spread.
Rumiano organic, non-GMO cheese is available in several flavors in a brick style and sliced varieties. To find a store near you, please visit http://rumianocheese.com/store-locator.
