This Week's Tasting: November 6, 2018
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!
Leonora is a soft-ripened, goat's milk cheese from a small producer in the mountainous region of Léon, Spain. The milk comes from a single, small herd of Alpine goats, lending the cheese lemony and grassy notes. Overall, it has a creamy sweetness balancing out a slight funky tanginess which develops as it ages.
Also on our tasting plate this week:
Lou Bergier, a raw cow's milk, Toma-style cheese made with thistle rennet in Italy.
Teahive, an Irish-style cheddar rubbed with black tea leaves and bergamot oil from Beehive Cheese in Utah.
Latte Da Cotzwold, an aged goat's milk cheese modeled after a British Cotswold and flavored with chives at the Latte Da Dairy in Flower Mound, Texas.
Willoughby, a washed-rind, cow's milk cheese from the Cellars at Jasper Hill in Vermont.
Rogue River Blue, a cow's milk blue wrapped in Syrah leaves which are soaked in a pear liquor from the Rogue Creamery in Oregon.
Our wine of the week is Evolution from Sokol Blosser in Dundee Hills, Oregon. We taste wine from 10am to 2pm on Saturdays.
We are also sampling Urban Honey from Words & Food in Houston.
