Mild in scent with a mixed yellow color, this Havarti is soft and springy in texture and instantly melts into a mooshy paste in the mouth. Very mild in flavor yet with a definite complexity, the slightly grassy, clay-like paste gives way to a milk-heavy flavor without so much as a hint of sharpness. Aromas of nuts and cured meat can be detected.
This versatile, mild cheese stays so creamy when melted; it would make a great base for a killer mac’n’cheese. For drink pairings, try it with a rich, ripe Chardonnay
