This Week's Tasting: October 4, 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!
June's Joy is a fresh goat's milk cheese from the Pure Luck Dairy in Dripping Springs, Texas. Located just west of Austin, cheesemaker Amelia Sweethardt lavishes attention on her herd of Alpine and Nubian goats. She makes June's Joy by hand, mixing her signature fresh chevre with Texas honey, black pepper and thyme. The result is a spreadable, well-balanced cheese which goes great on a piece of toast - or just on a spoon!
Other cheeses on our tasting plate this week:
Mt. Tam, a triple-cream Brie from the Cowgirl Creamery in California.
Cabriolait, a raw goat's milk cheese made in the Alpine-style from Het Hinkelspel in Belgium.
Pleasant Ridge Reserve, a raw cow's milk cheese made in the Alpine-style from Uplands Cheese in Wisconsin.
Bandaged Bismark, a raw sheep's milk cheddar-style made by Grafton Village in Vermont and aged at the Crown Finish Caves in New York.
Oregonzola, a cow's milk gorgonzola-style from the Rogue Creamery in Oregon.
Our wine of the week is And Why am I Mr. Pink? a Rosé from Mattawa, Washington. We taste wine from 10am to 1pm on Saturdays.
We're also sampling Cajeta from Blue Heron Farm in Field Store, Texas.
