This Week's Tasting: May 24, 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!
Red Butte Hatch Chili is a flavored, Irish-style cheddar from the Beehive Cheese Company in Utah. The paste of the cheese has a buttery, full-bodied texture and citrus-like fruity notes. Added hatch chile and a spice rub around the rind give this cheese a kick on the finish and a great presentation.
Other cheeses on our tasting plate this week:
Fresh Chevre, a fresh, goat's milk cheese from the Pure Luck Dairy in Dripping Springs, Texas.
Cabra al golfio, a semi-firm goat's milk cheese made in the Canary Islands off the coast of Spain.
St. David's Raclette, a raw cow's milk cheese from Eagle Mountain Cheese in Lipan, Texas, that is perfect for melting.
Sapore del Piave, a cow's milk cheese from the Veneto region of Italy that is aged at least 15 months.
Chiriboga Blue, a Bavarian-style blue made with cow's milk at Käserei Obere Mühle in Germany.
Our wine of the week is Llano Estacado's Signature Rosé from Lubbock, Texas. We taste wine from 10am to 2pm on Saturdays.
We will also be sampling with American Spoon's Cucumber Pickle Relish.
