Cheese Profile: Scandinavian Cheeses
Scandinavian cheeses can add color, distinctive flavor, and fun to a festive cheese plate (Northern Lights optional). Some popular varieties of Nordic cheese include:
- Castello Blue: a rich and creamy blue cheese with a Brie-like texture and a delicate hint of earthiness. Delicious with a drizzle of raw honey.
- Danish Blue: a hearty blue cheese. Adding soft crumbles of this blue to salads gives greens a boost of well-balanced flavor.
- Gjetost: pronounced YAY-toast, this sweet, firm brown cheese has a slight caramel flavor. A classic snack for Norwegian skiers, try thin slices on crusty bread with a dab of lingonberry jam or serve on apple wedges.
- Jarlsberg: similar to Swiss cheese, but Norway’s version has a more subtle nutty flavor. Try it on crispy rye crackers topped with strands of sweet pickled onions.
