Glenn here. Be sure to visit the wine store this Friday for our biweekly cheese and wine tasting. I’ll be tasting 3 Vermont farmstead cheeses that are also on our Away in a Manger cheese plate. These are the cheeses:
Dorset- We’ve been selling this cheese at our counter since spring. It’s especially soft right now. The paste is running a bit around the rind and its the stinkiest it’s been in a while. Consider Bardwell Farm, West Pawlet VT.
Menuet-just arrived yesterday. It’s a bit firmer than Dorset, so it sits above the counter during the day. The flavors are subtle and reminiscent of smoked meats. Dancing Cow Farmstead Cheese, Bridport, VT.
Bayley Hazen Blue- I covet these wheels when we can actually get them. They’re as good as ever, soft and crumbly. Jasper Hill Farm, Greensboro, VT.
Mike from the wine store will have wines to match. Hope to see you there!
The Greene Grape (wine store) Friday, December 19. 5pm-7pm.
