I am so very sorry, cheese fans, that we have let an entire 25% of May pass without announcing our current Cheese of the Month! We had a wonderful Wensleydalefest in April, but now it is time to celebrate another excellent cheese (do not fear, we still have Wensleydale). Our cheese for this month is a beautiful cheese called Helen from Lark’s Meadow Farms. Based in Rexburg, Idaho, cheesemaker Kendall Russell makes a variety of cow and sheep’s milk cheeses. Helen is 100% cow’s milk; dense & slightly supple in texture with a grassy aroma. This cheese has a pleasant, warm butter flavor which gives way to a slight spiciness. Overall a wonderfully savory & complex cheese.
For the month of May we will be offering this cheese at the absolutely insane price of $21/lb (regularly $26/lb). So come on in & make sure to ask for a sample of this tasty treat. And stay tuned, we will be posting an interview on this blog with the cheesemaker Kendall Russell- he & his cheese have an incredible & fascinating story!
