This wild and exciting blue cheese is not all that exciting to look at. From the outside, the four pound wheel looks like a lumpy, dome-shaped boulder. But upon cutting through the grey-brown rind you’re presented with a beautiful, yellow core of unpasteurized Jersey cow’s milk. Gentle and random veins of blue strike through the paste of the cheese, like unpredictable bolts of lightning. Produced in Lichtensteig, on the Eastern side of Switzerland, Jersey Blue is made by master cheesemaker Willi Schmid. The texture is dense and fudgy, while the raw cow’s milk carries notes of hay, buttermilk, and a final tingling bite from the blue mold. This is one of the most famous cheeses Willi has created at his dairy, Stadtlichasi Lichtensteig.
