This Week's Tasting: December 26, 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!
From Moro Formaggi in Italy, Fior d'Arancio is a young cow’s milk blue cheese aged in barrels and bathed in a sweet wine for around 30 days. The wine, named Fior d’Arancio DOCG, is produced with Moscato grapes grown in volcanic soil and helps the cheese develop aromas of stone fruits, honey and orange blossom. These notes pair perfectly with the lush, full flavored paste of the cheese.
Other cheeses on our tasting plate this week:
Bijou, a young, soft-ripened goat's milk cheese from the Vermont Butter and Cheese Company in Vermont.
Los Cameros, a semi-firm cheese with a natural rind made from goat's, sheep's and cow's milk at Quesos Los Cameros in Spain.
Latte Da Gouda, a nutty, light gouda made with goat's milk at the Latte Da Dairy in Flower Mound, Texas.
Roelli Haus Select, a robust cheddar aged over one year at Roelli Cheese in Wisconsin.
Schnebelhorn, an Alpine-style made with raw cow's milk and added cream from Kaserei Butschwil in Switzerland.
This week we're sampling a Sparkling Riesling from Dr. Loosen in Germany. We taste wine from 10am to 1pm on Saturdays.
We're also sampling Spiced Marionberry Fruit Spread from Mt. Hope Farms in Oregon.
