FEATURED CHEESE OF THE WEEK
MEADOW CREEK APPALACHIAN Galax, Virginia Cow, Firm
Virginia's Feete family uses ecologically-sound farming practices in raising their dairy herd of Jersey cows: no pesticides or herbicides are used in the fields where the cows are rotationally pastured; the cows are never confined or fed silage, and are given minimal hormones and antibiotics; and the milking season ends when grass growth wanes and the cows wind down their milk production. The quality of the cheese reflects this diligence.
This semi-hard, Tomme-style cow's milk cheese is a lightly cooked, pressed-curd cheese, aged for at least sixty days in our cellars, Appalachian is similar to a simple French Tomme. The final product is a densely textured cheese with a supple straw-colored paste. The taste is gentle and buttery with earthy undertones and citrus notes; the rind white with glimpses of gray.
Try this with a non oaked Chardonnay or Alsatian Pinot Gris.
