Lessons with Natural Foods Cheese Monger Colin Coyle
After attending a cheese and wine tasting at Local Foods last week, I am thrilled to share some formaggio facts from a true expert:
Colin's choice cheese: Carr Valley Cheese Company's Mobay sheep and goat milk cheese. As one of the top specialty cheese manufacturers in the States, this Wisconsin farm has made this cheese with ash to separate the sheep from goat milk parts while the grape vine ash also helps to preserve the cheese. The ash tones down the acidity of the cheese, which slows the aging process. This is a delectable combination of flavors with the grassy, sweetness on the sheep's milk next to the tangy taste of the goats milk with a bright finish.
