In Vermont, Ruthie takes a ride to the cheesy side ! | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it
At 5:45, when I trekked from the farmhouse to the creamery, navigating the unseasonably soft, mucky ground, I was struck by the difference between my own lifestyle as an urban cheesemonger and the 20-somethings who make the nationally acclaimed cheese at Consider Bardwell Farm.

Cheese Notes - Ardrahan

Cheese Notes - Ardrahan | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it
Ardrahan, a washed-rind from Ireland, a land not often mentioned when speaking of washed rinds and stinky cheeses in general. Made by the Burns family farm in Kanturk, Ireland, they started making this cheese in the early 80’s and initially exported most of it to France where there was an audience for more pungent cheeses. Ireland (and the rest of the world) has since caught up, for the most part..

Love At Mast: Murray's Debuts Chocolate-Infused Cheese For Valentine's Day

Love At Mast: Murray's Debuts Chocolate-Infused Cheese For Valentine's Day | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it
The words "chocolate" and "cheese" are two of the best uses ever for the letters "ch." And as girls' best friends go, they're much more affordable than diamonds.

They've had brief encounters with one another in the past, in chocolate cheese fudge from Wisconsin and chocolate cheesecakes from bakers around the world. But this Valentine's Day, for the first time, the two are getting married in tiny wheels of chocolate-infused cheese.

Gorgeous gougères

Gorgeous gougères | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

There's nothing nicer with drinks than something warm, crisp and cheesy and gougères fit the bill perfectly. I made a batch last night for a couple of friends and wondered why I didn't make them more often. (Probably just as well, on reflection. We scoffed the lot.)

Mozzarella Company’s Grassias, Texas | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it
Finally, a cheese from Texas! Something that has eluded me and Colleen in the three years since we launched this blog. Thanks again to the magic of mail-order cheese, I was able to procure Grassias, a mixed-milk cheese from Dallas’ Mozzarella Company.

Widmer's Brick & Colby : Wisconsin Originals

Widmer's Brick & Colby : Wisconsin Originals | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

Brick and Colby : perhaps two of the most underrated cheeses in America. Some folks call them boring. Others simply write them off as commodities.

 

After all, Colby is really just Mild Cheddar, right? And blocks of Cheddar sell on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, along with cattle, corn and cotton. So why should these cheeses even be considered interesting, much less blog-worthy?

Holland's Family Farm Looks to Expand

Holland's Family Farm Looks to Expand | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

One of Wisconsin's best-loved farmstead cheesemakers thought building a new cheese factory, a 300-cow dairy farm and farmstead retail store with an agri-tourism focus would be welcomed by their entire local community.

They thought wrong.

Soup Cheese

Soup Cheese | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

I never grew up eating Pecorino, but this winter it’s become my go-to cheese to serve with winter soups. The nutty flavor of this quintessential Italian specialty comes from sheep’s milk, and because it’s a rich, fatty cheese, a few curls shaved onto a broth adds beautiful dimension.

Is There Such a Thing as Too Much Cheese?

Is There Such a Thing as Too Much Cheese? | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

The other day I counted ten different kinds of cheese in our fridge. Eleven if you include the tub of mascarpone.

It made me wonder, is there such a thing as too much cheese?

Mais non!
One can never have too much of such a good thing.

Madame Fromage: Valentine’s Cheese Advice | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

With the economy in the toilette, it’s an awfully good year to be a loving spendthrift. Instead of bedazzling a sweater and going out on the town, I suggest you bedazzle some goat cheese and stay in with some Steely Dan.

Off to Casellula, for an evening steeped in cheese

Off to Casellula, for an evening steeped in cheese | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it

It began with the crostini: orange blossom honey, hazelnuts lilting atop the buxom surface of fresh ricotta. Then the macaroni and cheese: a trifecta of oozing melters mantling the noodles within, and caramelized onions tucked in all the right places.

Cheese better with white wine than red

Cheese better with white wine than red | thedancingcheese | Scoop.it
Contrary to what most people think, white wine is a better match for cheese than red, researchers say.

 

A glass of red wine has long been considered as the perfect accompaniment for cheese but gastronomic experts have now insisted that the tipple has been served the wrong way at dinner parties for decades.
