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!
Every Holiday season we put together a special selection of our favorite cheeses. Through this week until Christmas we'll be sampling these cheeses, available a la carte or in one of our Holiday Bags! You can pick up a bag in our store or pre-order one online.
In this year's Holiday Bag:
Hoja Santa, a fresh goat's milk chevre wrapped in Hoja Santa leaves from the Mozzarella Company in Dallas, Texas. Hoja Santa is a plant native to Texas and Mexico and imparts sweet flavors of lemon and licorice to the soft cheese.
Devil's Gulch, a double-cream Brie from the Cowgirl Creamery in California. The wheel is dusted in sweet and spicy red pepper flakes and makes a beautiful addition to any cheese plate.
Pantaleo, an aged, goat's milk cheese from the island of Sardinia in Italy. The cheese has a dry texture, a subtle sweetness and big notes of pistachio.
Alpha Tolman, a raw, cow's milk cheese made in the Alpine-style by the Cellars at Jasper Hill in Vermont. Tolman is rich and savory with slight crystallization and notes of boiled peanut.
Bay Blue, a cave-aged blue from Pt. Reyes Cheese in California. This rich and creamy blue is friendly and herbaceous with sweet cream and mushroom notes.
Rush Creek Reserve, a raw, cow's milk brie wrapped and aged in bark in the Vacherin style from Uplands Cheese in Wisconsin. This cheese available as an add on to the Holiday Bag.
Our wine of the week is Sangue di Giuda from Cantina di Casteggio in Italy. We taste wine from 10am to 2pm on Saturdays.
We are also sampling Sour Cherry Preserves from American Spoon in Michigan and Six Seed Crackers from Potter's in Wisconsin.
