This Week's Tasting: July 12, 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!
A small-format Basque cheese with a natural rind, Petit Agour by Fromagerie Agour has a rich, nutty flavor. From the French side of the Pyrenees Mountains, this raw sheep's milk cheese is part of the lengthy Basque cheese-making tradition.
Other cheeses on our tasting plate this week:
Baby Caprino, an ash-coated, soft-ripened goat cheese from CKC Farms in Blanco, Texas.
Little Hosmer, a brie-style, cow's milk cheese from the Cellars at Jasper Hill in Vermont.
Lincolnshire Poacher, an aged, raw cow's milk cheese from the United Kingdom.
Quadrello di Buffala, a washed-rind, buffalo's milk cheese from the Quattro Portoni cheesemakers in Italy.
Bayley Hazen Blue, a firm, fudgy, full-bodied blue from the Cellars at Jasper Hill in Greensboro, Vermont.
Our wine of the week is the Pinot Grigio from Colterenzio in Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy. We taste wine from 10am to 2pm on Saturdays.
We will also be sampling Fig Almond Cake made in Valencia, Spain by Mitica.
