This Week's Tasting Plate: Memorial Day edition

You know when it's a Sunday night and you're getting ready for work the next day, packing your lunch and feeling melancholy and then you realize that you actually have Monday off because it's Memorial Day? Three-day weekend, baby. Oh yeeeeah.

To celebrate America's greatest gift to the working man after Donut Tuesdays, we'll have a limited number of Harbisons from Jasper Hill. It's a special occasion cheese, wrapped in bark that makes the spoonable paste woodsy, herbal and sweet. It's like natural fondue.

We'll also have Old Kentucky Tomme, made of goat milk at Capriole Dairy. It bears some relation to a Tomme du Savoie with its natural-mold rind and earthy, mushroomy flavor. The tasting plate will also be loaded up with Barely Buzzed, Cremont and Bosque Blue.
