This Week's Tasting: November 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!
This Cheshire-style, made by the Appleby Family since 1952, is the last raw milk cheese of its kind in England. Appleby's Cheshire is made from the milk of the family's own herd of cows and clothbound before aging around 4 to 6 months. It develops a balance of rich, mineral flavors, a juicy acidity and a crumbly texture.
Other cheeses on our tasting plate this week:
Silver Lining, a fresh, goat's milk cheese dusted in ash from the Pure Luck Dairy in Dripping Springs, Texas.
Harbison, a Vacherin-style wrapped in Spruce bark from the Cellars at Jasper Hill in Vermont.
Cabriolait, a raw, goat's milk cheese made in the Alpine-style in Belgium.
Tarentaise, a raw cow's milk Alpine-style from the Spring Brook Farm in Vermont.
Little Boy Blue, a rindless, sheep's milk blue from Hook's Cheese in Wisconsin.
Our wine of the week is Euli from Cantine Valpane in Italy. We taste wine from 10am to 1pm on Saturdays.
We're also sampling Blueberry Lime Preserves from American Spoon in Michigan.
