This Week's Warehouse Tasting (New A.C. Edition!)

Bring it on, Houston summer! The Dairymaids' warehouse has just been installed with three new air conditioning units and it is practically sweater, mitten and snowball weather in here. We're even thinking of extending warehouse hours from now on and to start off the experiment, this Friday you can find the doors open from 10am to 6:30pm and from 10am to 4pm on Saturday.

Behind said doors, not only will you experience a blessed, artificial chill, but also some fantastic cheeses. We'll have Bosque Blue, Carmody and Barely Buzzed plus a few you might not see on the plate as often.

From Springbrook Farm in Vermont, the Tarentaise is styled after a Swiss or French Alpine cheese such as Gruyere or Comte. This cheese has a lovely lemon-yellow color--thanks to grass-feeding--a smooth texture, and nutty flavor. We'll also be featuring Mont St. Francis, a special treat from Capriole Dairy. It's a rare, washed-rind goat cheese and earthy with a slight funk.

As always, we'll have classic favorites including Pure Luck chevre, Texas Gold Cheddar and fresh mozzarella available on standby. All you need to do is ask for it.
