Hey cheese fans! Meet the two newest cheeses to our line up. First is Nettle Meadow Farm’s Kunic. Kunic is a unique and voluptuous triple crème made only inThurman, New York at a small family farm. It is a white mold-ripened wheel made from goat’s milk AND Jersey cow cream. The blend makes Kunik far richer and more flavorful than a brie-style cheese yet more subtle and sumptuous than similarly ripened goat cheeses.
The second cheese to make the cut is Rogue Creamery’s Smokey Blue. From the same cheese makers of Oregon Blue–the first blue cheese made on the West Coast–the Smokey Blue is the first blue cheese ever to be smoked. Smokey Blue is cold smoked for 16 hours over hazelnut shells from the Pacific Northwest. The result is a balance of sweet caramel and hazelnut flavors that contrast the sharpness of the blue.
