This is one of the cheeses we serve at our restaurant,and happens to be one of my new favorites. It comes from Artisanal cheese out of New York.
Monte Enebro is handmade in Avila, Spain, by legendary cheesemaker Rafael Baez and his daughter Paloma. The Baezs make their complex goat's milk cheese from pasteurized milk and innoculate the logs with the same mold used to make Roquefort, adding to Monte Enebro's complexity and distinctive appearance. Air-shipped to Artisanal at only 21 days, Monte Enebro arrives creamy, lemony and slightly acidic; as it ages, the texture becomes denser and the flavor acquires more intense, pungent finish. Pair this cheese with Sauterenes or a Spanish desert wine.

Hi everyone! We are really enjoying this, even though our doctor told us that we needed to cut waaay back on the dairy products. I am doing some research on the Vermont artisinal cheese making industry in my home state of Vermont. The industry has exploded here in the last 15years. - Vermont cheeses are beginning to sell in France... I would love to hear from all of you about your favorite Vermont cheeses and how you might rate them against others. Do let me hear from you!

Best, Christine Fraioli

Most recently I have fallen in love with Barely Buzzed. Not from Vermont though. This one is from Utah.

Barely Buzzed - I love the name and will have to check it out, if for no other reason than the name. Wonder who distributes it and where I can find it...

It is pastuerized Jersey Cow with a coffee ground rind. Made by Beehive cheese. Google search 'barely buzzed cheese'
It pairs wonderfully with red wines.

Sonoma resident Seana Davis has just released Delice de Vallee, a chef's blend of fresh cow and goat milk, with a sweet essence and
creamy delicate, sensation to the palate.

More info here:

I haven't tried it yet, but I hope to soon!

Thanks Margie, I am looking forward to trying it myself.
