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.

Tea and Cheese pairing exploration

Tea and Cheese pairing exploration

 

This is a study I did earlier this summer for a complex pairings course. 

Teas and cheeses can be very successful partners in a pairing situation.  Black teas and green teas offer greater chances for success, while white tea and herbals offer the least. Strive for balance; too strong of a tea will overwhelm the cheese, and likewise, too strong a cheese will overpower a tea.  By playing with the different aromas and flavours of teas and cheeses, great discoveries can be made.  When brewing tea, it is crucial to pay attention to the recommended steeping times and temperatures to allow for full expression of the tea.
