This Week's Tasting: June 14, 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!
This week's featured cheese is Triple Barrel Cheddar by the Veldhuizen Family Farm in Dublin, Texas. This raw cow's milk cheddar is aged three years, forming a texture rich in crystals that goes well with its sharp taste. Paired with bold, dark beers and whiskey, this cheese will make the perfect Father's Day cheese. We have a limited supply, so grab a piece while you can!
Other cheeses on our tasting plate this week:
Silver Linings, a fresh, ash-ripened cheese from the Pure Luck Dairy in Dripping Springs, Texas.
Kirkham's Lancashire, a raw cow's milk cheese by Graham Kirkham in the UK.
Bethmale Chèvre, a goat's milk cheese from the Mons affineurs in France.
Alpha Tolman, an alpine-style raw cow's milk cheese from The Cellars at Jasper Hill in Vermont.
Caveman Blue, a cave-aged blue made with cow's milk at Rouge Creamery in Vermont.
Our wine of the week is Aupa Pipeño from Vina Maitia in Maule Valley, Chile. We taste wine from 10am to 2pm on Saturdays.
We will also be sampling with Garden Dreams Houston's Strawberry Balsamic Preserves made here in Houston.
