Cheese Portrait Opus 42Mike Geno Studio
Allison Lakin sent me this beautiful cow's milk cheese that is an interesting mix of flavors that translates as both fresh spring rain and the musty cellar it was aged in. It's quite hard to pin down in words, and I mean that in a good way. It's earthy and grassy, but like there's some onion-grass in there, or chives and it's light and mildly sharp and nutty with a yeasty milk-like finish and it's addictive. I love it and can't say I can compare it with any other cheese in memory.
It's also quite attractive with a crumbled, mottled texture and a color range of pale-chalky lemon-yellow to a rich deep orange-olive glow nearer the rind.
Thanks Allison, for helping me get another Maine cheese portrait on the cheesemap!
