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!
Leonora is a soft-ripened, goat's milk cheese from a small producer in the mountainous region of Léon, Spain. The milk comes from a single, small herd of Alpine goats, lending the cheese lemony and grassy notes. Overall, it has a creamy sweetness balancing out a slight funky tanginess which develops as it ages.
Also on our tasting plate this week:
Red Hawk, a triple-cream washed-rind style from the Cowgirl Creamery in California.
Testun di Capra, a raw, aged goat's milk cheese from Piemonte in Italy.
Flory's Truckle, a rw, cow's milk cheddar, cave-aged by the Milton Creamery and the Flory Family in Iowa and Missouri.
Menonina with Jalapeño, a young cow's milk Chihuahua-style flavored with fresh jalapeños by the Mozzarella Company in Dallas, Texas.
Bayley Hazen Blue, a raw cow's milk blue with a natural rind, cave-aged at the Cellars at Jasper Hill in Vermont.
Our wine of the week is an Albarino from McPherson Cellars in Lubbock, Texas. We taste wine from 10am to 2pm on Saturdays.
We are also sampling Mayhaw Jelly from Garden Dreams in Houston.
