Similar to Dutch Leiden, Nokkelost is a semi-hard cow’s milk cheese with a creamy texture and thin natural rind.  Also, called kuminost, this pale-yellow cheese fully ripens in three months.

Flavored with cumin, caraway seeds and cloves, it is a bit spicy, nutty and tangy in taste. The cheese with 45% of fats is suitable for non-vegetarians. It can be paired with Red Wine and Ripasso.
