Havarti, a milder version of German Tilsit, was first made popular in Denmark. Many cheesemakers in Wisconsin produce a product similar to its Danish cousin. The Center for Dairy Research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison developed a special Wisconsin-style Havarti® that is firmer in texture and more buttery in flavor than other types.
Buttery, slightly acidic flavor. Smooth, supple texture with tiny holes.
Pale yellow, tiny mechanical holes
Buttery, creamy, slightly acidic
Havarti adds appealing flavor to both hot and cold sandwiches, especially turkey. Try Havarti on roast beef. This cheese is so rich and creamy, it is great for melting. To prepare baked Havarti, wrap an 8-ounce piece in puff pastry, brush on egg wash and bake at 425º F until golden brown. Serve hot with fresh fruit such as apples or pears for a party appetizer. Havarti makes a flavorful fondue. Simply melt shreds or slices under the broiler and serve with bread sticks or cubes for dipping.
Goes Well With
Plums, grapes, almonds, poultry, seafood Fruity wines like Riesling or Beaujolais Nouveau
