This Week's Tasting: June 1, 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!
The base of Shropshire is Colston Bassett's Stilton recipe, a traditional cow's milk blue from the United Kingdom. Annatto is added to this version, giving the cheese a bright, orange color. While the annatto adds little flavoring it does soften the curds slightly, giving Shropshire a creamier texture than its counterpart. The resulting cheese is earthy and savory with a dense, yet creamy texture.
Other cheeses on our tasting plate this week:
Latte Da Caerphilly, an aged goat's milk cheese from the Latte Da Dairy in Flower Mound, Texas.
Los Cameros, an aged cheese made with sheep's, goat's and cow's milk from Queso Los Cameros in Spain.
Landaff, a raw cow's milk cheese made in the traditional Caerphilly style from the Landaff Creamery in New Hampshire.
Pleasant Ridge Reserve, a raw cow's milk cheese made in the Alpine style from Uplands Cheese in Wisconsin.
Our wine of the week is Prisma Rosé from Casablanca Valley in Chile. We taste wine from 10am to 2pm on Saturdays.
We will also be sampling with American Spoon's Red Raspberry Butter from American Spoon in Michigan.
