Doe Run Dairy’s Seven Sisters, Pennsylvania

Doe Run Dairy’s Seven Sisters, Pennsylvania | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it
Salty/sweet combos are my downfall, so when I find that taste sensation in a cheese, you know it’s going to be one of my new favorites.

Seven Sisters, a raw cow’s-milk cheese from Pennsylvania, recently became my snacking cheese of choice for this exact reason.

Goats go mainstream: Cheese, kefir and yogurt all offer benefits — and flavor

Goats go mainstream: Cheese, kefir and yogurt all offer benefits — and flavor | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it
It wasn’t that long ago that goat-milk cheese was an exotic ingredient like truffles or caviar imported from far away, but now it’s almost become a cliché of California cooking. That’s not so bad, for goat cheese — or chèvre — is tasty and perhaps even a little healthier than cow-milk products.

Cheese 102 - St. Marcellin

Cheese 102 - St. Marcellin | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it
Teenagers are strange. They are always demanding you buy them things: cell phones, ski passes, and Saint Marcellin Cheese. Well, my teenager, anyway. My daughter is 15 years old, last September she went to France for a two week school trip, and came back a turophile-so it was money well spent. She mostly stayed near Lyon, and came back with tales of the cheese, the beautiful, ubiquitous, fabulous cheese.

We all know that cheeses can come in various shades of colors. It's actually kind of interesting to understand where these hues come from. And what you might not realize is that knowing a bit about a cheese's color can inform your palate, as well.

Have some chocolate with your cheese ! | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it
While most folks think that chocolate best expresses affections on Valentine’s Day, at Lucy’s Whey we tend to believe that cheese does a better job. Knowing that we’re not about to change the hearts and minds of chocolate lovers on a day devoted to the comestible, we compromised by holding a chocolate and cheese pairing class the day before Valentine’s Day. To no one’s surprise, it was met with quite good reception.

Meet the Maker: A Visit from Andy Hatch of Uplands Cheese

Meet the Maker: A Visit from Andy Hatch of Uplands Cheese | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

We could begin every blog with the same sentence, but here it feels especially appropriate: My job is awesome. Really, awesome. Not only am I able – nay, encouraged – to taste the best cheeses from across the US and the world on a daily basis, I get to share the results of that grueling work with people every day in our classroom. And sometimes, when I’m really lucky, I get to hang out in a room with the best cheesemaker in the United States, and hear from the maker’s mouth how those cheeses get so darn good.

Blue Cheese, Bacon, and Leek Quiche

Blue Cheese, Bacon, and Leek Quiche | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it
I promised Eggton a recipe with bacon. What I came up with is a really tasty quiche that’s packed with flavor. It can be enjoyed hot or cold as a perfect breakfast, or you can serve it up for lunch with a bit of salad. Make it a day or two in advance if you’re going to be pressed for time – it keeps well. If you can’t stand blue cheese, use any kind that you prefer.

A Vermont Coulommiers

A Vermont Coulommiers | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

Last week, a beautiful Coulommiers descended from the air. It arrived from Vermont in a cardboard pizza box, and for several days I simply peeked at it, delighted to have a whole wheel at my disposal. Truth be told, I was a little scared to try it. My last encounter with Coulommiers was so memorable — it was smuggled in from France — that I was afraid this wheel wouldn’t match up.

La Tur - a gorgeous Italian cheese | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

We went out for dinner to friends last night and they served just one cheese - a gorgeous triple cream cheese called La Tur. It sounds French but in fact comes from the Langhe region of Piedmont - maybe why it went so well with the Dolcetto we were drinking.
