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!
Sennekäse with Fenugreek is a raw, cow's milk semi-firm cheese from the German cooperative dairy, Obere Mühle. Made by skilled cheesemaker Arturo Chiriboga (of Chiriboga Blue fame), Sennerkäse has an orange rind and a creamy yellow paste that is studded with Fenugreek seeds. The Fenugreek imparts a savory, maple-syrup character, making it a complex, meltable cheese. We can imagine it as a grilled cheese with pumpernickel bread and German mustard, served with a Saint Arnold Oktoberfest (released earlier this month!). Speaking of beer and cheese, our bi-annual Saint Arnold Beer and Cheese pairing is September 9th! Buy tickets, because this event will sell out quickly.
Also on our tasting plate this week:
Green Hill, a grassy, creamy cow's milk camembert-style cheese from Sweet Grass Dairy in Georgia.
Evalon, is a raw goat's milk aged gouda-style from the Laclare Family Creamery in Wisconsin.
Sharpshooter, an extra aged cheddar with a pronounced sharpness and parmesan-like crunch from the Veldhuizen Family Farm in Dublin, Texas.
Ubriacone, which means “great big drunk,” is a delicious Italian cow’s milk cheese bathed in a mixture of local Clinton and Raboso wine.
Dunbarton Blue, a savory blue cheddar from Roelli Cheese in Wisconsin
Our wine of the week is new Ermitage du Pic Saint Loup Rosé from the Languedoc - We taste wine from 10am to 2pm on Saturdays.
We are also tasting the Jalapeno Pepper Jelly from American Spoon in Michigan.
