This Monterey Jack is enhanced with Morel and Leek. Wisconsin leads all other states in the production of Monterey Jack. It is known for its delicate, buttery, slightly tart flavor and creamy, open texture. Slice for sandwiches or eat with a tasty cracker, this cheese's earthy flavor from the morel mushrooms is an excellent compliment to the creamy flavor and texture of the monterey jack.

fast delivery
By Mary Brown

I have not tasted the cheese yet, but it arrived in Southern California today, Friday, May 20th from FEDEX around noon. It was still a little bit cool, and looks to be in perfect order. I will be serving it at a party for my book club on Tuesday in conjunction with our reading the book THE COINCIDENCE OF COCONUT CAKE , which is a delightful story that takes place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, thus, the cheese! Thanks for the speedy delivery. MARY BROWN

Monterey Jack w/ morel & leek
By Donna Bleam

I bought this cheese because the flavors are intriguing. I was making homemade mushroom soup the day it arrived. I blended some of the cheese into the soup; very nice subtle addition! Thank You

Great flavor combination
By Carol Harris

This was by far one of our favorites. The subtle combination of morels and leeks was fantastic with the Jack cheese. I didn't get a chance to use this in baking or melting on other foods because we sliced it up and ate it on crackers and it was gone in one setting with a few friends to enjoy it with us. We hunt morels in the spring and this will definitely be something we make at home now with the shroom crumbles, a block of Jack and our smoker. Can't wait to try it!

A Flavor Above the Rest
By Sandra Farrar

Monterey Jack Cheese on its own is an all around nice cheese but with the Morel and Leek, it now makes it a special Jack Cheese. Trying this cheese for the first time was a surprising hit although not sure why I should have been surprised. So far everything I am buying from this store has been pretty good.

By Renee Clark

What a clever combination of flavors! This is great as is or on crackers, etc, just like the info says. It's very satisfying so I hope this cheese continues to be available. We'll be ordering more. :)
