Heralded as the ‘dew of the sea’ Rosmarinus officinalis provides the perfect savory high note for this rich, nutty and fruity taste sensation.

This spicy hand-rubbed cheese packs a heated punch as you near the rind.

The Cajun rub was developed by local Ogden, UT chef John Dearmin using only the finest ingredients. Unlike typical Cajun rub, Big John uses cayenne pepper instead of paprika. Sorry, the rest of the recipe is top secret. The spiciness of the rub is a nice compliment to the creamy texture of the cheese. Watch out, this cheese packs a heated punch as you near the rind.
