This Week's Tasting: January 24, 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!
The folks at Sweet Grass Dairy believe great cheese comes from fresh grass and happy cows. On their sustainable farm in Thomasville, Georgia they pasture feed their Jersey cows to get the milk which makes the incomparably smooth brie-style, Green Hill. The rind is thin and the paste is creamy and rich - arguably America's best Camembert.
Other cheeses on our tasting plate this week:
Marinated Sheep and Goat Cheese, fresh cheese marinated in oil with herbs from the Meredith Dairy in Australia.
Tomme de Hood, a raw cow's milk cheese made in the Tomme-style from the Eagle Mountain Dairy in Lipan, Texas.
Roth's Private Reserve, an extra-aged Alpine-style madew with raw cow's milk from Roth in Wisconsin.
Teahive, an Irish-style cheddar rubbed with black tea leaves and bergamot oil from Beehive Cheese in Utah.
Bay Blue, a cave-aged blue cheese with a natural rind from Point Reyes Cheese in California.
Our wine of the week is Lona Bona, a Sangiovese from Trere in Italy. We taste wine from 10am to 1pm on Saturdays.
We're also sampling Oatcakes from Effie's Homemade in Massachusetts.
