Cheese of the month club

Anyone have any good recommendations of anywhere I could get a cheese subscription or find good cheeses online?

Are you US based? Have a particular type of cheese(s) you enjoy?

Nothing in particular. I am a lover of all cheeses. Yes, I will be shipping to Miami.

I gave a year's membership to an employee from NYC Based "Artisanal"

I've enjoyed their restaurants and found it easy.

Sounds good to me. Hopefully it is appealing to your palette.

I'm not a big fan on online cheese. So much depends on how the particular cheese was stored and handled, flavors vary from batch to batch, etc. I need to taste me cheese before purchasing.

Have you tried these shops?

Can you order cheese from a supplier or merchant abroad and have it delivered to your US address? Wouldn't that pose a problem for customs?

Short answer, Yes you can have cheese shipped from overseas to US.

I would think that ordering on-line poses the same problems as buying when overseas and shipping home.

In June we were in London and Mr. Balima is a HUGE English cheese fan. We went to a cheese shop and they were more than happy to ship cheese home to us. One caveat, the cheese needs to be pasteurized to meet our cheese making standards here. Mr. balima had no problem shipping home a half wheel of Cheshire and an Stilton. The problem came when I wanted to send home some runny stinky fresh cheeses. The cheese shop immediately knew which cheeses we could send and which ones we couldn't.

So, I would imagine that the same standards apply to shopping on-line.
