The Turducken of Cheese

If you only serve one cheese at Thanksgiving, let me make a suggestion: try Gorwydd Caerphilly (pronounced GOR-with CARE-fully).

Not only is it spectacular, it’s essentially three cheeses in one. If you want to have a little fun, treat your friends to a three-part tasting by giving everyone a thickish slice and instructing them to identify the three parts: (1) the rind, (2) the gooey layer below the rind, (3) the cakey white center.

Disclosure: This post is part of a weekly series I write for Di Bruno Bros., one of my fave cheese haunts in Philly. I choose the topics, but I get paid to guest-blog on the store's site.


  1. Love the description of the "turducken of cheese" - it sounds really delicious. Is it made from cow's milk? I love the idea of using it in a gratin or potatoes too - YUMMMM!

  2. Thanks, Stephanie! Yes, this is a cow's milk cheese. I used it to make a gratin earlier this week, and it was wonderful. Caerphilly melts well, and it has so much flavor.

  3. Awesomeness-why didn't I think of that?

  4. I have always wondered how to pronounce that! You the Turducken link. HI-Larious!
