The Artigiano small-batch Wisconsin cheese with balsamic vinegar and onion, paired with a Ines Rosales “La Torta” olive oil/sea salt flavored cracker-like product would be a great hostess gift or contribution to a holiday meal. Both are available at Hills Cheese and the La Torta is cheaper and fresher than Amazon’s!
