This Week's Tasting: January 29, 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!
Marinated Sheep and Goat Cheese, from the Meredith Dairy in Australia, is a fresh cheese marinated in olive oil. Garlic, black pepper, herbs and extra virgin olive oil make up the marinade. The complexity of these flavors pairs with the creaminess of the cheese for a luxurious cheese. We recommend eating it with a fresh baguette so you can soak up some of the flavorful oil.
Also on our tasting plate this week:
Mt. Tam, a triple-cream Brie from the Cowgirl Creamery in California.
Latte Da Gouda, a gouda made with goat's milk at the Latte Da Dairy in Flower Mound, Texas.
Smoked Habanero Cheddar, an Irish-style cheddar smoked and flavored with habanero peppers from Beehive Cheese in Utah.
Pleasant Ridge Reserve, a raw cow's milk cheese made in the traditional Alpine style by Pleasant Ridge in Wisconsin.
Bay Blue, a natural-rinded blue, aged in the caves at Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company in California.
Our wine of the week is Come and Drink It, a Rosé from the High Plains in Meadow, Texas. We taste wine from 10am to 2pm on Saturdays.
We're also sampling Strawberry Balsamic Preserves from Garden Dreams in Houston, Texas.
