STOP THE PRESSES! NEW CHEESE FROM JASPER HILL!
We received an email a half hour ago from Jasper Hill. They are releasing a new cheese – Eligo – a washed-rind Brick/Tallegio style mixed goat and cow milk cheese. This story had been developing slowly at first, and then at a break neck speed. For a couple years, Jasper Hill has been kicking around the idea of buying a herd of goats. Initial plans for early in the year were...

Tomme Chévre Grandmère Adrienne
Tomme Chevre Grandmere from Jacquin has quickly become one of our most popular French imports. A beautifully bloomed goat cheese, it has a fudgy texture towards the center and a runny, melted ice cream consistency near the rind. For this new version, a thick layer of black truffle bisects the cheese and heightens its richness with earthy and umami flavors. Located in the Centre-Val...

Ah yes……Cheese Salad.
Check out these old recipes we found buried in our closet. Forget your typical cheese crisps, fondue, or baked casserole recipe; and experiment with a “Capricciosa” salad, made with celery root, ham, tongue, cucumber, all cut into julienne strips. Add your Taleggio, cut it into a fun shape like a triangle and make your salad look like a flower full of worms.  Or how about a ye...

Thankfully, Neal’s Yard Dairy has a solution to this problem. We will be offering for pre order 1/4 wheel packs of both Lincolnshire Poacher and Montgomery’s Cheddar. Not only is the lead time now 2-3 weeks,...

Though the flavor combinations may not be familiar to the American palette, they’re indicative of classic English taste.

Essex St. hand selected – Marcel Petite Comté
If I had to pick a desert island cheese, hands down, it’s Marcel Petite Comté. Not only does it have complex nuanced flavors, it’s so versatile! I’ve melted it over a cauliflower gratin, layered thin slices between sourdough bread and butter for grilled cheese, shredded it over scrambled eggs, and nibbled on it while standing in front of the fridge contemplating what to make...

You might want to use this day to roll it up in a quesadilla, pack it into your lunch bag, or even smoke it over some hickory wood...

New to Stock – Monte Enebro
M385 – Monte Enebro – 3/3lbs Cheesemakers Paloma and Rafael Baez are behind this unique Spanish beauty. Monte Enebro is aged for 30-45 days and incorporates Penicillium roqueforti onto its rind. As you may know, this is the same mold used in blue cheeses, such as Roquefort and Stilton. This may account for why the cheese has a peppery, earthy, walnut flavor.  Additionally,...
