Shipping Notes


Maytag Blue cheese is a hand made cow’s milk cheese from Newton Iowa. Maytag is the most celebrated Blue cheese made in America, and has joined the ranks of one of the best in the world. Maytag farmers were some of the first to feel the pressure to expand their herds and production but say no and opt for local ingredients and local distribution. It is of course possible to obtain Maytag in places of than Newton Iowa thanks to the internet, but you’ll still be getting an authentically small town, hand wrapped piece of art.

When cooking with Maytag, incorporate its rich crumbles into a salad. It melts very well and makes an excellent sauce for pastas and meats.

Of course, you have the option of leaving the Maytag alone, placing it in the center of your cheese platter and letting its white creamy paste and deep blue veins speak for themselves.

This luscious blue cheese pairs well with a red wine in the glass, but it works even better with red wine in a recipe. There are countless great recipes that use Maytag Blue cheese and a variety of red wines to create beautifully balanced dishes.

Upon receipt of your order the ice pack may no longer be frozen. This is expected and should not be the cause of alarm. The cheese should be cool to room temperature. Once rewrapped and stored properly the cheese will last up to 3 weeks.

For optimal storage allowing the cheese to breathe and retain moisture wrap the cheese in wax paper, plastic wrap or tin foil upon arrival.

A - Bloomy rind, tomes, hard or dry rind cheeses - wrap only the cut surface in plastic wrap, leaving the rind exposed so the cheese can breathe.

B - Blue cheeses should be wrapped securely in tin foil.

C - Washed rind cheeses should be wrapped in wax paper.

D - Small cheeses such as goat’s milk crottin should be wrapped in wax paper.

E - Soft cheeses store well in waxed paper or sealed containers.

Store your cheese in a cool, damp place such as a wine cellar, larder, wine cabinet, or in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator (the warmest part of the refrigerator).

As a general rule, aged hard cheeses last longer than softer, less aged varieties.

For the fullest flavor it is recommended to bring cheese to room temperature before serving.
