Cheese – DaVinci

Posted in Food at 1:15 pm by Transmuter

My experience with DaVinci cheese was interesting. It’s basically Dutch Gouda infused with herbs and spices. The name is certainly attractive, and it looks pretty cool.

So I have to say, this cheese smells heavenly! I almost melted when I first unwrapped it and cut a slice. Seriously, it smells really good. I was majorly disappointed when I found that the taste of the cheese is very mild, even bland (at least compared to the smell). I like the texture – firm and smooth, with nice little crispy bits where the herbs are.

If this cheese tasted like it smells, it’d taste something like Roasted Garlic Triscuit, but maybe with the garlic not as strong. As it is, it’s not even as flavorful as the Garden Herb Triscuit. Still, I did enjoy this cheese. I read that it makes a good omelet, but I didn’t have a chance to try making one.

    I have never even heard of that cheese, but my standard philosophy is that the taste gets better as the smell gets worse. If it is too mild for you, then it is probably a waste of time for me. I want my wife not to be able to kiss me for a week when I’m done eating cheese.

    So, mild = not good? I must respectfully disagree. I like extra sharp but also like the mild cheeses depending on what I am eating with it. Also, sometimes creamy is good and other times crumbly is good depending on it’s use such as in a salad or a sandwich. How it is used matters. Eaten alone, some are overpowering.
