About 100 years ago, a farmer’s wife who lived in North Zealand (one of Denmark’s most romantic islands -- a trysting place for lovers) became interested in the art of cheese making. She traveled through Europe to learn the secrets of this craft. Upon her return, she began to experiment with her newly acquired techniques. She named her finest creation after her farm, 'Havarthi'. Today's Cream Havarti is a direct descendant still made in Denmark. It has an ivory interior patterned with a myriad of tiny holes and is mild, creamy and mellow. It is both a table cheese and a dessert cheese to be served with fruit and wine.
