Harpersfield Tilsit-style Cheese

Local from the Brovetto Dairy

Local/NY Hudson Valley: This semi-hard washed rind cow's milk cheese is cave-aged and has a flavor reminiscent of aged Gouda - rich, buttery, hint of butterscotch - with a little bit of lactic sourness and the suggestion of wild aromatic herbs. Great for slicing; pairs well with assertive beers and wine.

Kunik

Local from Nettle Meadow Farm

Local/NY Husdon Valley: Kunik is a unique and voluptuous triple-cream cheese made with a blend of pastured goat milk and jersey cow cream. This cheese manifests some of the best qualities of a pastured goat cheese (tart, tangy, grassy), elevated by the supple buttery-ness of the jersey cream. You will not want to stop eating this one.

Vento D’Estate

Italy: The name translates to “summer wind.” This Italian semi-hard cow's milk cheese is barrel-aged under a blanket of mountain hay and wild field herbs, which imbues it with pronounced herbaceous and floral aromas, as well as a robust sweet/lactic flavor. Pairs well with a robust red wine.
