Shop for a great variety of semi-soft cheeses online at Gourmet Food Store! Chose from classic picks like Mozzarella, or rare finds like Petit Livarot from France. This category of cheese includes some great cheese board selections, and a great array of flavors and textures. A perfect example of a semi soft cheese is Mozzarella di Buffala, a smooth cheese with an elastic and pliable texture. Semi-soft cheeses have a very good melting characteristic, so they are great for cooking and ideal for sandwiches, grilled cheese, casseroles and pizzas. Their flavor can vary dramatically, but they blend well with other cheeses, since they tend to be young and mild. Interior-ripened cheeses, where the aging starts from within, is one example of semi-soft cheese, while surface-ripened is another (in this case, the aging starts from the outside, and is also called washed-rind). Some of our most popular semi-soft cheese include Fontina, Havarti and some blue cheeses like Roquefort. Discover them all below! You'll find semi-soft blue cheese, semi-soft sheep's milk cheese, goat cheese, even buffalo milk cheese! They're great to slice, some melting easily and great for grilled cheeses, some of the more crumbly variety perfect for salads. Serve semi-soft cheeses in fondues, add them to savory tarts and quiches, crumble over hot and cold salads, or just take your favorite and serve them on a cheese plate. You can't go wrong!
