This Week's Tasting: November 8, 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!
Bay Blue is a rustic style, farmstead blue cheese reminiscent of Stilton. Aged for at least 90 days by the Point Reyes cheesemakers in California, it tastes of earth, mushrooms and sweet cream with a salted caramel finish. Bay Blue has a natural rind and a lovely, fudgy texture.
Other cheeses on our tasting plate this week:
Bloomsdale, a Valencay-style goat's milk cheese from the Baetje Farms in Missouri.
Red Hawk, a triple-cream cheese with a washed rind from the Cowgirl Creamery in California.
Sheep Gouda, a raw sheep's milk gouda-style from the Veldhuizen Family Farm in Dublin, Texas.
Barricato al Pepe, an aged cow's milk cheese rubbed in black pepper and aged in wine barrels from Moro Formaggi in Italy.
Ogleshield, a Raclette-style cheese from the Manor Farm in the United Kingdom.
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 Membrillo from Spain.
