A semi-firm wheel of pasteurized goats' milk that is mild, vaguely sweet, and refreshingly straightforward. The paste remains supple after approximately four months of aging, and can be easily melted over pies or crisps for an unusual dessert.
This pairs beautifully with a dry California white or an amber ale.
Cacio de Roma
This creamy, semisoft sheep’s milk cheese is manufactured in the countryside of Rome and aged about one month. Known as a “caciotta” for its small form, Cacio de Roma is the classic table cheese from Italy with a very full, flavorful taste. It can be enjoyed as a snack, melted on pizza or on a cheese plate.
Wine pairing: Frascati or Soave.
Maytag is a blue cheese produced by Maytag Dairy Farms from the milk of prize-winning herd of Holstein cattle. The farm located outside Newton, Iowa has been making this handcrafted cheese since 1941 using traditional methods of curing. Even today, the blue cheese is not produced in huge quantities as the cheese makers want to ensure that only the best quality cheese reaches the consumers.
Maytag Blue cheese is ripened over six months during which it develops a dense, crumbly texture and semi-sharp flavor. Every bite of Maytag melts in the mouth releasing a slightly tangy flavor with a lemony finish. With its pungent odor, the cheese might not suit everyone’s tastes.
The cheese delivered in decorative silver foil tastes delectable when crumbled into salads, crackers or melted onto a burger. Also, try it with glass of ale or lager
