Made in small batches from fresh, local Wisconsin milk, Roth Kase's rich, creamy Moody Blue is delicately smoked over fruit wood to create subtle smoky undertones with hints of roasted nuts and coffee. Beautifully balanced, sultry, and seductive, Moody Blue is excellent on a cheese plate and delicious in culinary applications. Set it out with plum compote, fresh pears, or serve it with dark chocolate as a dessert plate. When choosing a beverage, enjoy Moody Blue with Cotes du Rhone, Zinfandel, Stout beer, or Belgian lambics.
To craft Roth Kase's line of luscious blues, they start with Wisconsin's renowned natural resource: local family farms producing the highest-quality milk from Jersey and Holstein cows. This milk, higher in butterfat than most and with a character that changes from season to season, is transformed into delicate curds by our cheesemakers. They hoop the curds by hand into traditional round forms, then pierce, salt, and carefully cure each wheel of Moody Blue for four months or more to allow a lacey network of natural blue veining to develop. It takes time and effort to handcraft Moody Blue, but the result is well worth the effort: a classic blue cheese, deliciously creamy and tangy with a smoky, haunting finish.
