Hard Cheese

Hard cheeses are aged cheeses. They are crumbly and dry, but not shriveled up. Great for crumbling and grating, some of the most popular hard cheeses are Italian, like Parmigiano, Grana Padano and Pecorino Romano, although there is a great aged Cheddar and an aged Gouda and a French Mimolette that are just fantastic alternatives. The aging gives them that dry texture, but it also gives hard cheese much more pungency and character. These not mild cheeses! They have a long shelf life and will continue to develop their flavor as they age. Check our selection of gourmet hard cheese below.
