This Week's Warehouse Tasting: Cheese Meds

Earlier this week, I was sitting in my bedroom when one of those giant Houston tree roaches scuttled across the wall. I screamed, naturally, and leapt up to find my cat.

"Chairman Meow!" I cried, "Eat the roach!" I scooped her from the bed, jumped off it and my left foot landed with a crack. Now I have a contusion.

Anyways, I was pretty much immobile the rest of the night and the only thing that made me not feel crushing despondence over the state of my life was the round of Pure Luck Dairy's Del Cielo in my fridge and some downy, leftover Slow Dough cranberry walnut bread from the Saturday warehouse tasting. I ate all of it. True story.

The cheese is a creamy, Camembert-style and it's just now reaching the perfect softness. Even though it's delicate and light (nice for summer), it's still super flavorful. So thank you, Amelia Sweethardt, for curing my depression, if not my foot, with your cheese.

Goats produce a lot of milk in August, so we will have a full stock of Del Cielo for the tastings this weekend. We'll also have Mt. Tam, the buttery triple cream from Cowgirl Creamery in California and the coffee and lavender rubbed Barely Buzzed. Come say hi and cure what ails you with some delicious dairy.

The camembert sounds wonderful! (The roach, not so much... UGH.)
