Delicious Gourmet Cheese from Golden Age Cheese

As you all know...I love to cook, bake and spend time in my kitchen and today I get to introduce you to a fabulous company called Golden Age Cheese. This company is based out of the great state of New York and has been in business since 1983. They produce and sell several different varieties of 100% all natural cheese! You will find such varieties as Swiss Cheese, Mozzarella Cheese, Mild to Aged Cheddar, Smoked Cheese and Muenster Cheese to name just a few.

My Review: The great folks over at Golden Age Cheese sent me 3 big packages of gourmet cheese to review for all of you. Here in my home we are huge cheese eaters so we were super excited about reviewing these cheeses.

First up is the Swiss Cheese that has been aged for 3-6 months. This is a "hard" cheese made from cow's milk. Swiss Cheese is great for all kinds of things and one of the ways we like to use Swiss Cheese here in our home is on some sandwiches or on an appetizer tray with some bologna or pepperoni slices. This particular Swiss Cheese is on the "sharp" side and has a nice texture to it. Regarding flavor...absolutely wonderful and my family quickly devoured it.

Next up is the pack of Smoked Cheddar Cheese that has been aged for 1-6 months. This is a "semi-hard" cheese made from cow's milk that has a wonderful smoky taste to it. This type of cheese is great on a cheeseburger, in a pasta salad, vegetable salad or serve it up on an appetizer tray. We decided to try it 2 different ways: on cheeseburgers and in some breakfast omelets. Usually I am not a big fan of smoked cheeses but I have to admit, this one was delicious! The texture and flavor of this cheese is amazing and quickly became one of our favorites!

Finally is the Super Sharp Cheddar Cheese that we were sent to review. This particular cheese has been aged for several years and is made from cow's milk. It is a "semi-hard" cheese that is great for appetizer trays served alongside meats, fruits, vegetables, breads and/or crackers. I had some club crackers here and we decided to slice up this cheese to top our club crackers along with some Lebanon bologna. Within 30 minutes my entire tray was devoured by 5 adults and 1 child. I was lucky to grab two for myself! This one has the perfect texture and "sharpness" to it and was one of my favorites that I reviewed. It's a really versatile cheese that can be used many different ways.

All 3 of the cheeses that we reviewed from Golden Age Cheese were absolutely delicious! Matter of fact, some of the best we have ever eaten! If you are gourmet cheese lovers like we are, I think you would love the gourmet cheese products that Golden Age Cheese has to offer. You really need to head on over to their web site and check out their vast selection of products!

I would like to thank Golden Age Cheese for sending me & my family the delicious cheeses to try out for all of the Shakin and Bakin Foodie Blog readers! Your cheeses are amazing!
