This Week's Warehouse Tasting: Cheese Contains Multitudes

If there's anything adult life teaches us, it is that a person is not any one thing. A football player can be a poet and a Dairymaid can also be an amateur battle rapper. So it is with cheese. The Dunbarton from Roelli Cheese is a blue, but it's also a cheddar. The mild sharpness improves upon the cheddar's nuttiness and the earthiness tames the intensity of the blue. We debuted the cheese back in September and since then it has become one of our favorites.

Speaking of debuts, Stuart Veldhuizen's new cheese the Dublin Karst is also a bit of a hybrid. A cross between cheddar and Romano, it's made using Bosque Blue molds and has a pretty fluted exterior. Come visit us this Friday and Saturday to try some of its big, earthy bite for the first time.

We also have a new choice from the Old Chatham Sheepherding Company called Kinderhook Creek, made with 100% East Fresian Ewe's milk and our usual selection of mayhaw jelly, pretzel buns and beer. Because like you, our warehouse also contains multitudes.
