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!
Celilo is a washed-rind cheese made with raw, cow’s milk at the Cascadia Creamery in Washington. Its rind is washed with Gin from Bainbridge Distillers which is made, partly, from freshly harvested Washington Douglas Fir. The cheese ages for a little over 3 months and is sweet and nutty with a smooth, fudgy texture and meaty flavors.
Also on our tasting plate this week:
Bloomsdale, an ash-ripened, goat's milk cheese from the Baetje Farms in Missouri.
St. David's Raclette, a raw cow's milk, Raclette-style from the Eagle Mountain Dairy in Dublin, Texas.
Oveja Añejo, an aged sheep's milk cheese from Quesos Los Cameros in Spain.
Reverie, a raw cow's milk, tomme-style from the Parish Hill Creamery in Vermont.
Chiriboga, a raw cow's milk blue made by Arturo Chiriboga in Germany.
Our wine of the week is Thor's Well, a Pinot Noir from Devil's Churn in Oregon. We taste wine from 10am to 2pm on Saturdays.
We are also sampling Cajeta from Blue Heron in Field Store, Texas.
