Humboldt Fog, an icon in American artisan cheese

February 11, 2012

Humboldt Fog from Cypress Grove Chevre in California is one of the most iconic cheeses of the American atisan cheese movement. This highly celebrated cheese is quite well known for its unique appearance, given the line of ash through the middle and bloomy frosting-like rind. It’s just beautiful, like the best layer cake of cheese, and the taste is simply divine – lactic, creamy, goat milk goodness with a nice tang. This multiple award winning cheese is a true American original.

The Best Baa Experience

January 18, 2012

First off, my thanks to Elisabeth Bzikot for taking the time to speak to me early on a Saturday market morning. She is an incredible cheesemaker, and a lovely person all around.

Secondly, apologies for my ridiculous case of bed head, it was rather early.

Artisan cheese – occasional unexpected delays

July 7, 2011

Hi everyone,

Sorry for my unexpected delay between posts, I’ve been trying for a few weeks to get my hands on a particular artisan cheese to do a very special video that apparently I’ll be able to get “next week” from one of the farmer’s markets I frequent. As far as I am aware, this cheese is not available in stores in Toronto. One week it finally will be next week, and I’ll do that video then.

In the meantime, I thought I’d take this opportunity to let you know that I will be attending the American Cheese Society’s annual conference August 3-6, 2011 in Montreal.

I hope to see you there!!
