Little Prince all grown up

May 23, 2012

Little Prince is a goat cheese named after the youngest son of the owner of Monforte Dairy. It is a lovely, creamy, and I dare say elegant, ash-ripened chevre when young, and lusciously lickable when ripe, such as the specimen in this video. Cheese tastes and textures can vary wildly based on the age of the cheese, and so experimentation with this can yield interesting taste sensations.

From mythology it is said that the Gods sent Aristaeo , the son of Apollo and Cyrene to teach the Greeks the art of cheesemaking, This was intended as a “Gift from the Gods”, an ability that would become known as “a gift of everlasting value.” Homer’s Odyssey tells us about the Cyclops Polyphymus and his cheesemaking where he gives descriptions of the cheeses that were maturing in his cave. The cheese that was prepared by Polyphemus and described in the Odyssey is considered to be the ancestor of Feta.

Feta is indeed a gift from the Gods, one of my staple cheeses that accompanies me in my daily journey through life. Do yourself a favour, make the Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Greece happy, and get yourself some divine barrel aged Feta, a fresh, brined and aged cheese from the mountains in Greece.

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.
