Last tasting/class at CSSF. Brilliant three days, made great industry connections. Ended witha perfect progression in pristine shape. All five represent leading lights in the young American cheesemaking culture.
Humboldt Fog, Cypress Grove Chèvre
Baserri, Barinaga Ranch
Pleasant Ridge Reserve, Uplands Cheese Company
Winnimere, Jasper Hill Farm
Crater Lake Blue, Rogue Creamery
The Winnimere was PERFECT. it's a challenging cheese as it varies by batch, depending on treatments, quality of the bark, etc. his was unctuous, smoky and plenty of spruce. Delicious.
