This collection includes:
- Reading from Spring Brook Farm: Made with rich raw Jersey milk, this 3-month-old semisoft wheel is modeled after French Raclette. The thin, edible rind has a salmon-colored blush and the interior is buttery, with an aroma of salted peanuts and mushrooms. Reading (say "Redding") repeatedly wins its category at the American Cheese Society competition. Even better, profits from Spring Brook Farm cheeses support the Farms for City Kids Foundation, bringing urban kids to the farm to experience rural life. Eat cheese: Do good! (7.5 oz)
- Little Hosmer from Jasper Hill Farm: This four-ounce mini-Brie is perfect for two. The geniuses at Jasper Hill wanted to make a Brie-style cheese that you could enjoy at home in one sitting, at perfect ripeness. Aged about six weeks, Little Hosmer has a silky interior and aromas of mushroom and cauliflower. (4 oz)
Maytag Blue from Maytag Dairy Farm: Eighty years, ago, Fred Maytag dreamed of making a blue cheese as fine as those he has tasted when traveling in Europe. With help from Iowa State University, he created it. Debuting in 1941, Maytag is thought to be America’s first blue cheese from cow’s milk and it remains one of the finest. Creamy and tangy, with an aroma like ranch dressing, Maytag Blue is an American classic that you can crumble on a wedge salad or showcase with pride on a cheese board. (7.5 oz)
Suggested accompaniments: Bonnie’s Jams Black & Blue Conserve, Jan’s Farmhouse Crisps Cranberry Pistachio.
