Bloomsbury cheese Caromont Farm Virginia

Bloomsbury cheese Caromont Farm Virginia | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it
Little makes me happier than asking my cheesemonger what’s new and having them offer up something from a local cheesemaker. Virginia has but a handful of cheesemakers, which is a little disheartening given the explosive growth of our wine industry in recent years. The ones we do have, however, are top notch, so I didn’t hesitate to pick up a wheel of the new cheese from Caromont Farm.

Top ten recipes using Stilton cheese

Top ten recipes using Stilton cheese | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

Stilton cheese is said to have first appeared in the village of Stilton around the 17th Century, where it was made as a cream cheese that was allowed to mature and harden before being sold. It then stood out from other cheeses because it was made with whole milk instead of skimmed, giving it a superior texture and taste.

Last week, I went in search of camel cheese. In Doha, a desert city that rises out of the Persian Gulf like a mini Manhattan, I tasted camel (it tasted like lamb). I also rode a camel (wildly bumpy). But I did not get to the teat.

The Cheeselover: Capra Nouveau

The Cheeselover: Capra Nouveau | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

I've got a bit behindhand with my cheese posts - this was one I tasted about a month ago at my local deli, Chandos.

It's a washed rind goats cheese from a Shropshire producer called Brock Hall Farm. The surface looks almost as if it has been knitted and the interior is seductively yielding - a bit like a Vacherin.
