Whey Cool Women
Throughout history, women have played a crucial role in cheesemaking. In honor of Women’s History Month, Saxelby Cheesemongers is celebrating women in cheese – past, present, and future! This collection includes five cheeses and one box of crackers from some of the most talented women in the business, plus a Saxelby Cheesemongers branded cheese knife. Includes over 1.5lb of cheese and serves 8-10 people. *Cheeses included are:
Mini Kunik - a triple-creme blend of goat’s milk and cow cream made by Sheila Flanagan and Lorraine Lambiase at Nettle Meadow Farm.
Ascutney Mountain - a golden hued cow’s milk cheese packed with flavors ranging from roasted nuts to tropical fruits made by Jeannine Kilbride at Cobb Hill Farm.
Dorset - Dorset is fashioned in the style of a simple Alpine tomme, and has a pliant, creamy texture and a golden ochre paste. The wheels are washed with brine as they age, giving the cheese a tawny orange rind and slightly pungent aroma.
Tres Bonne - With a golden wax rind, and a fresh, minerally, and slightly sweet flavor, Tres Bonne is reminiscent of a fine goat gouda.
Appalachian - a semi-firm cow's milk cheese with a buttery, savory flavor made by mother-daughter team Helen and Kat Feete at Meadow Creek Dairy.
Seeded Spelt Crackers - handmade from organic, New York state ingredients by Kate Arding and Mona Talbott at Talbott & Arding.
