This Week's Tasting: September 27, 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 big guy is Vermont Herdsman from the Parish Hill Creamery in Vermont. He's a raw milk cheese with a natural rind, made only while the cows at a pasture. Aged for a full year, Herdsman has notes of pineapple and hazelnut. The paste is firm, but not dry with a slight, granular crunch and a fruity aroma. Pair him with some apricot jam and a farmhouse ale!
Other cheeses on our tasting plate this week:
Trillium, a triple-cream Brie from the tulip Tree Creamery in Indiana.
Baby Caprino, an ash-ripened goat's milk cheese with bloomy rind from the CKC Farms in Blanco, Texas.
Teahive, an Irish-style cheddar rubbed in black tea leaves and Bergamot oil from Beehive Cheese in Utah.
Gubbeen, a washed-rind style from Gubbeen House in Ireland.
Fior D'Arancio, a blue cheese washed in a dessert wine and topped with candied orange peels from Moro Formaggi in Italy.
Our wine of the week is Olema, a Rosé from Cotes de Provence in France. We taste wine from 10am to 1pm on Saturdays.
We're also sampling Apricot Jam from American Spoon in Michigan.
