Roomano – the ultimate cheese candy

August 28, 2013

Several years ago I fell in love with this tasty treat, and recently returned to Murray’s Cheese shop in NYC for another bite! This delectable treat is aged several years, and has the crunchy crystal bits I love as well as intense sweet/savoury notes. As it is so aged, it travels really well, another bonus for me! So far it has not proven the easiest to find, so when you see it, grab it!

Limburger: The Ultimate Guilty Pleasure

January 24, 2012

Coming home from the store, you may wonder who or what smells so rank, until you remember that you’re carrying home a brick of my guilty pleasure – Limburger cheese! It’s commonly known to be aromatically intense, but in this case, the bark is worse than the bite; the flavours are quite mild in comparison. Excellent in a sandwich with its beefy, savoury and yeasty qualities, and even better with beer, this cheese is favoured among many an elderly gentleman. Channel your inner little old man as I have, and fall in love with Limburger!

Fox Hill Cheese House – Fenugreek Havarti

November 2, 2011

Rick from the Fox Hill Cheese House in Nova Scotia was the nicest cheesemaker I had the pleasure of meeting on my recent trip to Halifax. This delightful, family-run, farmstead business is quality through and through.  Sustainable farming practices are employed; they proudly plant the seed, grow the grass, milk the cows, and make fantastic cheese, yogurt, gelato and milk.  This is a textbook example of a cheesemaker that focuses on producing good milk which is of course the lifeblood of good cheese.
