Lazy Lady Farm - Westfield, Vermont

A four-sided washed-rind cheese from Lazy Lady Farm. Cheesemaker Laini Fondiller created this batch of cheese especially for the Vermont Cheesemaker’s Festival. The young wheels are washed in brine, giving a fruity pungent punch to the tangy and musky interior. Chalky and light in the center with an impressive creamline just beneath the rind.

Queso Fresco

Narragansett Creamery - Providence, Rhode Island

A fine young cheese made in the tradition of the ubiquitous fresh cheeses found across Latin America. Made from local cows’ milk curdled with vegetable based rennet and pressed into large format wheels, this cheese is the perfect addition to any number of dishes you can dream up from tacos to pizza to fresh summery salads. It melts wonderfully, and has a mild, milky, and ever so slightly tangy flavor. This rindless cheese is similar in spirit to mozzarella, but has a snappier texture and more mellow tang.
