Mont St. Francis from Capriole 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. We finish ours in Monnik Beer Company’s His Dark Materials stout to enrich its funky, pungent flavor with a sweet, smoky finish. We’re “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: Kenny’s Cheese Curds

Kenny’s Farmhouse Cheese Curds

All of that time you spend driving to Wisconsin is now in vain. We make your favorite snackable, poppable, meltable fresh cheese curds. The kind gentleman who installed some equipment in our creamery when we were developing the curds, a Wisconsinite, loved them so much he shipped some home to his family. You will see these mostly in restaurants around Louisville, Lexington and Nashville, and when we can we make it available in small bags for retail. Curds are the fresh version of cheddar, and if you eat them straight out of the vat they have the famous “squeak” that people associate with the curd experience. Try popping them in the microwave for 5 seconds or so to return the squeak.

Item of the Day: Port Salut Cheese

By | Cheese, Gourmet, Gourmet Cheese, Item of the Day, What Chefs Want

Port Salut Cheese

Port Salut cheese, also called as Port du Salut, comes from Brittany in the Loire Valley, France. It is named after the abbey of Notre Dame du Port du Salut in Entrammes.
Made from pasteurized cow’s milk, the cheese was produced by Trappist monks way back in during the 19th century. This semi-soft cheese is produced in form of disks weighing approximately 2 kg (5 lb). Though the cheese is produced in big factories now, the handmade version is still produced by various monasteries throughout the French countryside and enjoys a great demand!

Item of the Day: Dancing Fern Cheese from Sequatchie Cove Creamery

By | Cheese, Chef's Feed, Gourmet, Gourmet Cheese, Item of the Day, Southern Foods, What Chefs Want

Named for the native ferns that sway and nod at the breezy mouth of a cave in Coppinger Cove where the creamery is located, Dancing Fern is inspired by the famous raw milk Reblochon cheese of the Savoie in France.
Tasting notes: A soft and supple texture and barn-yardy aroma, along with notes of cultured butter, shiitake mushroom, and walnuts make it a stand out on the cheese plate.
Pairs nicely with: Pinot Noir, Chignin Blanc, Trappist ales, French farmhouse ciders, marmalades and preserves (in particular grapefruit), dark chocolate, and fresh in-season peaches. Works wonderfully in a classic Tartiflette recipe.
