This Week's Tasting Plate: The New Cheese on the Block

We have a new Texas cheesemaker in the shop, so we hope you'll come make friends with the new kid. Straight out of Flower Mound, Texas, Latte Da Dairy is making aged goat cheeses that rock. Also, their goats are very cute. This week, we're featuring their version of the English-style Caerphilly. Originally made to replenish Welsh miners of their nutrients and salt, this goat's milk version maintains the original characteristics of Caerphilly. It is light colored and crumbly with a fresh, pleasing tang. 

We're also featuring our Whitewoods Farm jams and allow me to personally recommend combining the blueberry sage with a melted brie sandwich. It is the single best cheese sandwich I have ever laid hands on and these hands have touched a lot of cheese sandwiches. 

Of course, we'll also have Cabot Clothbound Cheddar, Hopelessly Blue and Marieke Gouda if that's more your sandwich speed. To each his own cheese.
