Golden Fleece – A unique Manchego-style artisan cheese with delicately floral saffron threads throughout the paste. Aged 4 months and made with microbial rennet, it is smooth and buttery with a touch of acidity and saffron in the finish.
Mitica® Date Coconut Cake – An artisanal Spanish cake made with just whole Deglet Noor dates and coconut. The soft, exquisite dates are the ideal match for fresh, flaky coconut. Each cake is formed by pressing layers of fruit together with no additives or preservatives. Excellent paired with cheese, chocolate, or as an energy-boosting snack.
Mitica® Marcona Almonds Fried & Salted – Known as the “Queen of Almonds,” Spanish Marconas are sweet, plump, and flavorful with no bitterness. We expertly select these prized almonds for the highest possible quality.
Mitica® Orange Blossom Honey – This raw, monofloral orange blossom honey comes from Murcia in southeast Spain. The producers’ co-op members cultivate the bees and collect honey from bees that feed on the pollen of orange blossoms. The resulting honey has delicate hints of citrus, making it very versatile.
More about Michele Buster: For some people in the world of food, it isn’t about composing a dish or a cocktail, or overseeing a balanced wine list. For some people it’s just about one thing, one love amidst the trove of food and drink products. For Michele Buster, for the past 26 years, that one thing is cheese. Recently dubbing herself the Head Treasure Hunter when asked what she actually did, Buster has spent many years cultivating expertise in specialty foods of the Mediterranean. Over the past decade, she has worked alongside partner-formed Forever Cheese, to bring cheeses and specialty products from Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Croatia to the United States. When not sourcing products in Europe, Buster frequently travels across the United States, conducting classes and tastings for specialty stores and restaurants. A respected part of the cheese community, she is a member of the prestigious International Guilde des Fromagers. The PDO Sao Jorge Consortium in Portugal inducted her as an honorary member, and she was also recognized with an award from Murcia, Spain, for being the person who most stimulated the agronomy of the region. In 2019, on behalf of Forever Cheese, she accepted a Whole Foods Market Global Supplier Award for Raising the Bar for Quality. She was featured on the cover of Cheese Connoisseur magazine and most recently, was profiled by the Wine Spectator as a “One-Woman Flavor Crusade.”
