Our first feature from New York State (Yeah!) is Jersey Girl from our friends @cooperstown_cheese
.
.
We were one of the first retail shops that happily carried Jersey Girl when they started in 2007 and it has never left our shop since.
.
.
Description:
Semi-firm raw cows milk cheese aged 3-4 months. The name Jersey Girl is from the Jersey cows which yields high quality milk -is entirely grass fed so the earthiness of the cow's milk is reflected in the deep yellow hue and rich hearty flavor of the cheese.
.
.
Pairing:
This cheese is wonderful on it's own yet is versatile enough to be used in salads and sandwiches. We would pair this with apples, pears, strawberry or any bright non-citrus fruits. Pairs great with fruity white like Pinot Grigio, or a light Cava.
.
.
Pick some up next time you're in the shop and support our local artisan cheesemakers like @cooperstown_cheese!

05/03/2020

As the American Cheese Month continues. Our next featured cheese is Humboldt Fog, the original American artisanal goat cheese from @cypressgrovers in Humboldt County, CA.
.
.
From Cypress Grove:
This masterpiece paved the way for soft-ripened goat cheese in America. Each handcrafted wheel features a distinctive ribbon of edible vegetable ash. You'll enjoy buttermilk and fresh cream, complemented with floral notes, herbaceous overtones, and a clean citrus finish. As Humboldt Fog matures, the creamline develops and the flavor intensifies.
.
.
.
Why we love it:
It's flavor approachability yet complexity adds depth to any cheese plate not to mention it looks beautiful! For this same reason, many restaurants love this cheese and features it on their menu. Please make sure to support your local restaurants when they reopen.
.
.
Pairing:
We love pairing Humboldt Fog with fig jam or truffle honey. Young Sauvignon Blanc or a crisp Riesling will work well with it! .

May is American Cheese Month!

We will be featuring our favorite American cheeses throughout the month! We have amazing cheeses right here in our own backyard!

First up is, Cabot Clothbound Cheddar. We know, it's just cheddar right? Wrong! Not all cheddar are created equally. Cabot Clothbound Cheddar was conceived out of a partnership between Cabot Creamery and Jasper Hill Farm. The cheese itself is made from Cabot Creamery then sent to the Cellars at Jasper Hill to age. At the Cellars, they coat them with hot lard and additional layer of cloth then age it for 12-14 months.

Note from Jasper Hill (and we couldn't agree more):
PAIRING AND SERVICE - Clothbound has a signature tang and caramel nuttiness with a rustic crystalline texture that becomes creamy on the palate. This savory-sweet balance of flavor makes a perfect match for charcuterie, apple jelly, or a rich chestnut honey. Pair with an off-dry sparkling apple cider, hoppy ale, or an oaked Cabernet Sauvignon. Clothbound is an award winning cheese, including American Cheese Society's 2006 Best in Show.

Pick some up next time you're in the shop. Let's support our local artisan cheese makers. There are many challenges brought by the Coronavirus Pandemic but we can get through this together! #americancheesemonth #cabotclothboundcheddar #americancheese #cheese #cabot #jasperhillfarm @jasperhillfarm @cabotcheese
