This Week's Tasting Plate: A Star is Born Edition

Raise your hand if you consider Beyonce our true Texas star. Now raise your hand if you you think it's Gary Busey. That probably covers the spread on Dairymaids readers, but you are all wrong. It's Woody Harrelson. Just kidding, it's a new cheese from the Veldhuizens called Texas Star. It tastes similar to a cheddar and has a creamy texture that coats the tongue like a custard. Its rich yellow color speaks to the cows' healthy grass diet.

We'll be showing off the Texas Star for the first time this week, as well as another cheese from Rogue Creamery called Crater Lake Blue.  It's the dairy's most robust blue, sharp and sweet with a rich buttery finish. The contemporary blend of blue molds from around the world make for a cheese that tastes like a blend of Roquefort and Danish Blue.

The store will also be fully loaded on Nancy's Camembert, San Andreas and Reading Raclette. Here's to cheese stardom.
