A Beautiful Cheese

Chris from Consider Bardwell Farm (Vermont) brings us cheese every Sunday. This is such a treat! They conjure up 3 or 4 different styles of cheese. 1. "Metowee" is the freshest of fresh spring goat's milk cheese, which we've used in pastas, salads, and on it's own with honey and fruit. 2. "Dorset" is a little funkier - a soft rind, cow's milk cheese. The softer and riper, the better. It is especially tasty on our cheese plate. 3. Just out and the current favorite is the slightly aged, soft rind "Manchester". This is perfection- with less of a rind and more of a subtle crust it is delicate and sophisticated. It's the cheese of the week for me.
