This Week's Tasting: March 6, 2020
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!
Cotzwold is a take on a traditional, British pub-style cheese from Anne Jones at the Latte da Dairy in Flower Mound, Texas. Made with goat's milk from her small herd, the aged cheese is flavored with green onion and chive. Cotzwold's robust, savory flavor and crumbly texture makes it a perfect pairing for beer. It's also excellent grated over roasted potatoes!
Other cheeses on our tasting plate this week:
Miette, a soft-ripened goat and sheep's milk cheese from the Baetje Farms in Missouri.
Aged Gouda, a semi-firm gouda made with raw cow's milk and aged for 6-9 months from Holland's Family Cheese in Wisconsin.
Pleasant Ridge Reserve, a raw cow's milk cheese made in the Alpine-style from Uplands Cheese in Wisconsin.
Le Chartreux, a semi-firm cheese with a natural rind made with raw cow's milk from Savoie in France.
Oregonzola, a gorgonzola-style blue cheese made with cow's milk from the Rogue Creamery in Oregon.
Our wine of the week is Petit Bourgeois Sauvignon Blanc from Henri Bourgeois in France. We taste wine from 10am to 1pm on Saturdays.
We're also sampling Toketti, a fried, Sardinian flatbread.
