Moonlight Chaource (6 oz log)
Chaseholm Farm Creamery
A slightly aged, bloomy rind cheese whose white rind just conceals the ash layer beneath. Quick to ripen; Moonlight has a tart and firm chevre style center in its youth, but as it ages, ripening from the outside in, the pate sweetens taking on an ever more delicate body and creaminess. An ash layer beneath the bloom has characteristics of a goat’s milk St Maure, though made here with cows milk. Pair with salted almonds and honey.
