This Week's Tasting: February 15, 2020
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!
Gold Hill is a pasteurized goat’s milk cheese from Haystack Mountain in Colorado. Modelled after Spanish and Portuguese style cheeses, Gold Hill is semi-firm with a lightly washed rind. It has a buttery, tangy paste with a nutty and earthy complexity. It has received multiple awards from the American Cheese Society and at the World Cheese Awards.
Other cheeses on our tasting plate this week:
Miette, a goat and sheep's milk Brie from Baetje Farms in Missouri.
El Dorado, a raw cow's milk Spanish-style with a natural rind from the Revelations Artisan Dairy in Meridian, Texas.
Gorwydd Caerphilly, a traditional Caerphilly made with raw cow's milk from cheesemaker Todd Trethowan in the United Kingdom.
Pt. Reyes Gouda, an aged gouda-style from Point Reyes Cheese in California.
Echo Mountain, a rindless blue made with goat's and cow's milk from the Rogue Creamery in Oregon.
Our wine of the week is Prosecco Superiore from La Farra in Italy. We taste wine from 10am to 1pm on Saturdays.
We're also sampling Fudge Sauce from American Spoon in Michigan.
