8 Original cheese from Thailand

  • San PaquanburieJartisann’s first soft cheese that uses a unique and creative starter culture and made with methods drawn from various artisanal French Brie’s. Aging takes at least 3 weeks, but it can be enjoyed with fully developed intensity and creaminess at 5 weeks. This cow milk cheese is named after the San Paquan district where it is handmade. You can’t get it anywhere else!
  • La Loubere
    A small bloomy-rind cow cheese that has a ‘half and half’ texture. Ready at 2.5 weeks, it is creamy under the rind with a firm heart. At 4 weeks it will yield a fully runny texture and stronger aroma and taste. Inspired by cheeses like Camembert and Pont L’Eveque, the La Loubere is named after a prominent 17th century French diplomat to Siam. Cheese that comes with a story behind…
  • Hidden Agenda
    Hidden Agenda is a strong and complex-flavored soft cow cheese. An original Jartisann innovation, its sticky pale orange rind is washed with light-brine and Lao Khao (a Thai rice Spirit) 3 times during the affinage and ripens in 5 weeks to produce a cheese with many layers of aroma and profiles. Very savory!
  • Ricotta Affumicata and Ricotta di Bufala Affumicata
    Soft, crumbly, salty, tangy, buttery, cream and smoky are all the characteristics of these two ‘smoked ricottas’ cheeses. First ricotta comes from cow’s whey, and the latter, being more creamy, comes from Mehsana buffalo whey. Smoked slowly over Thai Devil’s Tree wood0shavings, the ricotta turns into a savory cheese that can remind us of smoked meats. These cheeses have it all!
  • Saltara Ferari
    Since 2011, Saltara Ferari was first developed as a quick sketch that had an “accident-with0benefit”. A semi-soft cow cheese, it has a notable characteristic that gained its depth of flavor from smear-ripening. Its popularity comes from being packed with flavor and the savoriness that is achieved after maturing for 2 months. A taste that melts in the mouth!!
  • The Royal Bleu
    The Royal Bleu is a semi-hard blue cheese, reminiscent of Gorgonzola and Stilton. It was first developed in 2009 and became Thailand’s first bleu cheese recipe. The Royal Bleu was the very first affinage cheese that was developed by Khun Jarutat using natural underground cheesecave up on a cold mountain top of Doi Angkhang in Chiang Mai. During its R&D stages, this cheese was presented to His Majesty the Late King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand as a gift for him to witness Thailand’s first development of blue cheeses.It has been refined further to attain a distinct characteristic and meeting the international quality. The Royal Bleu enjoys a minimum age of 10 weeks for a ‘mild blue’ version but attains full creaminess and intensity after 16 weeks. Designed for a wider audience, the cheese is enjoyed as a ‘mild blue’ at 10 weeks of age but will become intense after aging for 16 weeks. Made from cow’s milk.Healthy cheese from the best dairy!
  • Palazzo Di Plama
    Palazzo Di Plama is created in the Moo Ban called “Palace of The Palms” in Chiang Mai. The reason it got its Italian-sounding name is because we designed this cheese to be completely influenced by the aged-old techniques of making grana types of cheeses, like Pecorino Romano and Gransardo. Designed to be a firm cheese that combines Italian Grana cheesemaking tradition together with the texture and favor of a Spanish cheese, Jartisann uses a blend of original cultures to formulate a cheese that reminds the tasters of Grana Padano mixed with Machego. Aging lasts from 2 to 6 months, becoming firmer and more piquant with age. Even though, cheese ages only for a minimum of 2 months, it has a decent depth of flavor, fruity aroma, and umami, almost equating to something 5-8 months old. “Age is something that doesn’t matter, unless you are a cheese.”

Those are just the sample of 8 unique of Jartisann’s cheeses where you can find at Organic Village. Feel free to visit Jartisann at ‘Jartisann The Village store’ if you visit Chiang Mai.
