This Week's Tasting: August 30, 2019
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!
Grayson is an award-winning washed rind cheese from the folks at the Meadow Creek Dairy in Virginia. Reminiscent of an Italian Taleggio, Grayson is made with rich, raw Jersey cow's milk. It has a soft paste and beefy, umami flavors.
Other cheeses on our tasting plate this week:
Little Hosmer, a small, cow's milk Brie from the Cellars at Jasper Hill in Vermont.
June's Joy, a fresh chevre whipped with honey, black pepper and thyme from the Pure Luck Dairy in Dripping Springs, Texas.
Main Street Jack, a raw cow's milk cheese made in the Jack style from Revelations Artisan Cheese in Meridian, Texas.
Challerhocker, a raw milk cheese made in the Alpine style from Käserei Tufertschwil in Switzerland.
Stichelton, a raw milk version of a traditional Stilton from the Stichelton Dairy in the United Kingdom.
Our wine of the week is And Why Am I Mr. Pink, a dry Rosé from Washington. We taste wine from 10am to 1pm on Saturdays.
We will also be sampling Sour Cherry Preserves from American Spoon in Michigan.
