Cheese: Week Eleven

I have a crush on Cypress Grove. It started with with their Humbolt Fog, and their Creamline Midnight Moon sealed the deal. I now want to try every cheese they make. Midnight Moon is an aged goat cheese. It's slightly grainy like a parmesan, and the flavor is nutty and buttery. It was perfect straight up - no cracker required. I plan to pick up another wedge this week to use in a salad. Buttery crunchy goodness aside, I really loved the packaging. The black wax with the vintage image is so pretty, don't you think? I feel like we're getting lucky with our somewhat arbitrary cheese choices. We're one quarter of the way through our year of cheese, and so far there have only been one or two unpleasant ones. What I've learned is there is a lot of good cheese out there. On to week 12.

Poetess –

Cheese week was a new year's resolution of mine. I wanted to learn more about cheese, and find new favorites.

It's been fun! We have an excuse for a party each week, and I've really learned a log so far.

I am obsessed with cheese also! I love everything about it all! Here in Germany I am totally digging the different kinds (some coming from France) than you can find in America. Love your blog!

Cypress Grove has chosen the most wonderful names for their cheeses! And I absolutely love that label.
Must try this one the next time I'm in the States.
