Cheese with Truffles

Where to get the most variety please?

    I don't know which specific store has the most varieties, but I've certainly bought some at Murray's Cheese - if you call I'm sure they'll be happy to help you.

      garden of eden stocks at least two (both very good), and whole foods at union square has two although one i really don't like (it's dusted with cinnamon). murray's is better than both of those stores, though.

        Uva, a restaurant on the UES, has many dishes with truffle cheese and a lovely cheese plate with it, as well.
        Dean and Deluca in Soho carries a nice variety in their market.

          Not exactly answering your question - but last year at Artisanal I had the most amazing cheese with truffles in it. I'm pretty sure it was called Pierre Robert. It was delicious!! Artisanal probably has more types with truffle inside - but I am a fan of the soft cheeses.

            Pierre Robert is a triple cream, definitely without truffles. But delicious, nonetheless!

              It was actually a "special" version of Pierre Robert. So good!! They only had it for a limited time.

              I like sottocenere too. I bought some at Agata and Valentina the other day, and there were a couple other types of truffle cheese at the counter there too. I also recall at least a couple at Citarella.

              Di Palo's, on Grand and Mott, usually stocks a southern Italian black truffle cheese that is absurdly good. I believe it is a sheeps-milk pecorino and it really is worth waiting an hour in that line to try. I think its a "pecorino tartufo", but ask to make sure...its a small wheel of a semi-hard cheese, studded with lovely black truffles. Reasonably priced too, like most things at Di Palo.
