This Week's Tasting Plate: Leaning Tower of Cheese
We don't let cats or any other animal wander into our shop, nor would we describe our delicious eats as debris, nor do we hoard, technically, but if you don't come help us devour the mounting wheels of cheese stacking up at 2201 Airline, a Dairymaid might get crushed. Elizabeth is extremely scrappy but Haley is short--who knows what could happen.
This week, we're featuring Pawlet from Vermont. This Italian-style cheese is made with raw Jersey milk and aged for 4-6 months for a creamy texture and a bright bite. It's versatile and has broad appeal, sort of like Gangnam style.
We will also be carrying a cheese called Chimney Rock, which sadly doesn't have any connections to the Houston road. It's made by Cowgirl Creamery in San Francisco and it's one of their seasonal bries, covered in organic Pioppini and Shiitake mushrooms and black pepper.
Also on the plate: Veldhuizen Caraway Cheddar, Carmody and Rogue Creamery's Smokey Blue. Save a Dairymaid today by eating your weight in cheese.
