Item of the Day: Mont St. Francis Goat Cheese from Capriole Farm

By | Cheese, Chef's Feed, Item of the Day, Local, Local and Specialty, What Chefs Want

Mont St. Francis Goat Cheese

Mont St. Francis was named for a nearby Franciscan retreat and was first made in 1994 when there were few American washed-rind cheeses. Cheeses like the rustic, stinky Mont originated in monasteries across Europe and were traditionally washed in brine or beer. Capriole finishes theirs in Monnik Beer Company’s His Dark Materials stout to enrich its funky, pungent flavor with a sweet, smoky finish. They are “texture-proud” at Capriole, and the semi-firm, extra fine texture of this cheese is perfectly matched to its hearty flavor and beefy nose.

Item of the Day: Kentucky Rose Cheese from Kenny’s Farmhouse Cheese

By | Cheese, Chef's Feed, Holiday, Local and Specialty, What Chefs Want

Kentucky Rose Cheese

Kentucky Rose is many things, but at its core it is a very simple gently pressed farmhouse-style cheese with a tiny kiss of Roquefort, just to give it a floral and earthy note on the rind. Added cream creates a level of decadence that carries the experience from start to finish, but somehow amid all of the that buttery goodness this cheese remains light and airy. The briny finish is longer than you expect. There is nothing to compare it to, it is truly one of a kind! Learn more about Kenny’s Cheese here.
