Every week at Dairymaids we select six cheeses to include in our free cheese tasting.
Whenever we are open, we are tasting cheese. We stock over 150!
Bleu Mont is a Wisconsin cheddar made using the traditional English method of cloth wrapping. After aging over a year in the cheesemaker's cave, the cheddar develops a crystalline "crunch" and deep, complex flavors. One man, Willi Lehner, makes the cheese at Bleu Mont Dairy. He comes from a family of Swiss cheesemakers and studied cheesemaking in Switzerland. Check out our recipe for Bleu Mont Cheddar Pop Overs!
Also on our tasting plate this week:
Kunik, a goat and cow's milk brie from the Nettle Meadow Dairy in New York.
Meredith, a fresh sheep and goat's milk cheese marinated in olive oil and herbs from the Meredith Dairy in Australia.
Evalon, an aged, raw goat's milk gouda from the Laclare Family Farm in Wisconsin.
