Anyone who has been here more than twice knows I "heart" Costco. One of the reasons is the wonderful cheese selections they carry at super reasonable prices.
Last Sunday we popped in for a quick shopping trip and they were demoing Cambozola cheese made by Champignon. One bite and I had to bring some home.
Cambozola is a cow's milk cheese that is a combination of a French soft-ripened triple cream cheese and Italian Gorgonzola.
It was patented and industrially produced for the world market by large German company Champignon in the 1970s. The cheese was invented circa 1900 and is still produced by Champignon. In English-speaking countries, cambozola is often marketed as blue brie.
Call it whatever you want - it's delicious. Not as much bite as blue, but peppier than brie...
Lunch yesterday was Cambozola cheese, my favorite crackers (from the Dollar Store, believe it or not), and San Juan canary melon.
It spreadable right out of the fridge but for best flavor let it come to room temperature (about 15 minutes)
And for the "hearting" Costco part? I checked online and couldn't find any of this cheese for under $15 and some odd change per pound (Amazon)
Costco price? $9.69 per lb. Big difference!
The Champignon website has some fun recipes. And if you Google Cambozola a gazillion recipes pop up. Isn't the internet great?
What's your favorite cheese??
