Chronicling my first year celebrating American Cheese Month, a promotion of the American Cheese Society.
Day 8 #AmCheeseMonth: @BellwetherFarms Cow’s Milk Ricotta. Amped up the deliciousness of pasta with homegrown summer squash in tomato sauceKate McCarthy
Day 9 #AmCheeseMonth (yesterday): CO takes the cheese plate w @AvalancheCheese’s Lamborn Bloomer, @MoucoCheese’s Ashley.Kate McCarthy
Note: Though some might argue it is unfair to compare, Mouco’s Ashley was more memorable. The plate favorite.
Day 10 #AmCheeseMonth: Sierra Nevada Cheese Co’s Chèvre in homegrown beet risotto w beet greens. Creamy and tangy.Kate McCarthy
I’ll be revisiting this chevre–great price for the yumminess. Super smooth texture.
Day 11 #AmCheeseMonth (yesterday): cottage cheese battle: @coverstornetta 4% milkfat v Nancy’s Cultures lowfat. Not really fair.Kate McCarthy
I looked to see if Nancy’s Cultures has full fatty goodness cottage cheese and was surprised to find they didn’t. Their sour cream is my favorite.
Day 12 #AmCheeseMonth (Friday, off grid): Weirauch Farm’s Carabiner. Simple and lovely raw cow’s milk mountain cheese. A new-ish fave.Kate McCarthy
Day 13 #AmCheeseMonth (Saturday, off grid): Central Coast Creamery’s Goat Gouda: A more-salty-than-sweet tangy Gouda.Kate McCarthy
Day 14 #AmCheeseMonth: @CellarsatJH Harbison, the most AMAZING bloomy rind, bark-wrapped cheese. Oozy creaminess w mustardy notes.Kate McCarthy
Seriously. Harbison?! If you have access to this cheese EAT IT! It is amazing. One of my favorite discoveries of the year! I got mine at Mission Cheese.
