Belper Knolle

The Cheese Box Seattle Pike Place Market Belper Knolle

Holy moly, Belper Knolle! Just kidding, it’s pronounced kah-noll. But the holy moly part still stands since this cheese is the epitome of small but mighty. Mighty flavored that is. Made with garlic and salt—and rolled in pepper, it is most often grated on top of other foods much like truffles or parmesan. It also gets bonus points for the consternation it can cause when you whip this uh… aesthetically challenged cheese out—and put it on top of what everyone else thinks is a perfectly good pasta dish. Little do they know that it is actually the secret ingredient that will have them asking for seconds in mere minutes!
