    Four Continents of Cheese on a Budget (2 pound)

    Four Continents of Cheese on a Budget (2 pound) by igourmet.com

    "Choosing from over 850 of our cheeses can be a daunting task, even for the most accomplished cheese connoisseur. While we all have our traditional favorites, there is something special about discovering a great new cheese. And, the best way to experience a new cheese is to try it. For those of you looking to expand your cheese repertoire, we have crafted a four cheese sampler from four continents of some little-known gems to serve at your next get-together."
    • Volendam (Europe): If you are a gouda lover, then Volendam is a must have! Inspired by the scenic Dutch fishing village of the same name, Volendam has a butterfat content of 55%, making it especially smooth and creamy. (8 oz.)
    • Hard Grana Provolone (South America): Originally from Lombardia, Italy, this cow's milk cheese was brought by Italian immigrants to Argentina. The cheese is recognized by its particular pear shape. During the aging stage, the cheese is hung (wrap and secure with a rope). This hard Provolone cheese develops a sharp, piquant flavor with age. (8 oz)
    • Great Ocean Road Cheddar (Australia): This sharp white cheddar hails from Australia, where it joins Stokes Point and Mainland Cheddar as a new favorite from down under. A buttery flavor separates this cheese from it's English inspiration. (8 oz.)
    • Atalanta Blue (North America): Atalanta is the Greek goddess of hunt, travel, and adventure. The name Atalanta is thus appropriate for this new blue cheese from Wisconsin. It's a bold , crumbly cow's milk cheese that took several years to perfect. Enjoy it crumbled over salads, stirred into sauces, or on crackers.

    Mustapha's moroccan olives, provencal green

    Ok I know what you are thinking....eeeeew it comes in a big tub or maybe you are thinking "how would I ever eat that many olives?"  Well I thought the same things before I ordered them.

    I have ordered olives from Amazon more than once and have never been disappointed.  When I saw these olives at $16.15 and free shipping I thought gosh they must be awful!  Then I read a lot of the reviews and the only bad things people were saying are that they are spicy.  Well I like spicy, so I thought I'll give them a try.

    To my delight these olives were fantastic and I say were because they are all gone now :-)  They were not that spicy, yes they were spiced, but not hot like the reviews said.  They had lemon and onions and thyme in the wonderfully delicious mix.  The olives themselves are perfect green olive perfection.  I highly recommend them.  If you have a big event these olives would make a great addition to your h'ordeuvre table. If not they make a great snack to munch on at night when you get those in between meal munchies.  They make a much healthier snack than chips or cookies. Well I hope you all will take the chance to try them out and I promise you won't be disappointed.  For the price, you really can't get any better.

    "The PERFECT idea for a foodie stocking stuffer or a hostess gift!

    This lovely glossy black tube contains six 1.75 inch (48 mm) glass top containers filled with gourmet sea salt blends for you to create rubs, marinades or sauces from.

    These are all hand-blended in small quantities and contain a ratio of half salt to half spice. You can use the salts straight from the container or put them in your own salt grinder.

    The sea salt is from France. The fruit of the ocean, wind and sun, this salt is gathered on French Atlantic salt marshes, simply dried in the sun, then crushed. It is rich in magnesium and calcium."
