Big John's Cajun, named after the local chef John Dearmin, is a cheddar-style, cheese made with pasteurized Jersey milk. It is produced by Beehive Cheese Company in Utah, United States. Canola oil is applied on a one day old cheese, then a mixture of Cajun meat with cayenne pepper is hand-rubbed and then allowed to mature in humidity controlled facility. Fully aged cheese is spicy in flavour and rich, smooth, creamy in texture. It pairs well with full-bodied red wines, champagne, or a fruity wheat beer. It can be shaved on salad or melted over a burger.  The cheese has won several awards including 2nd place at the 2009 American Cheese Society in 2009, 3rd place at the 2011 and 2012 American Cheese Society in 2011, 2012.

I'm not big on spicy stuff, but this had just a touch of spice on the rind. Easily avoided if you wish, or devoured if you choose! I found a slice with mostly cheese and a sliver of rind was the perfect ratio!
