Three states, three milk types and four top-tier producers add up to a collection of phenomenal cheeses from America’s Pacific Coast. From Paso Robles to Seattle, mild weather in summer and winter means great pasture and flavorful milk year-round. Get your prettiest cheese board ready for this diverse assortment, ranging from a delicate, creamy brie to a sheep Gouda, a clothbound Cheddar and a bold yet elegant blue.
- Laura Chenel Goat Brie: What’s not to love about this oozy, silky, velvety soft-ripened California classic? It’s lemony and bright, with a clean finish, just right for a young white wine. Unless it’s better with red wine. In this tasting, we’ll figure that out! (5 oz)
- Central Coast Creamery Ewenique: A Gouda-style cheese made with California sheep’s milk—how rare is that?? Might be unique. Or Ewenique. This holey wheel of sweet, caramelly goodness was initially made in Holland because Central Coast couldn’t find enough California sheep’s milk. A couple of years ago, they did. Now Ewenique is made in the USA and just as delicious as before, the cheese version of a salted caramel. (7.5 oz)
- Beecher’s Flagship Reserve: Thank you, Washington State, for this magnificent clothbound Cheddar-style cheese, a repeat award winner. It’s more mellow than many English Cheddars but with that recognizable creamy/waxy/crumbly texture and bright tang in the finish. (7.5 oz)
- Rogue Creamery Caveman Blue: This Oregon creamery specializes in blue cheeses, and this one is a favorite of Laura’s and Janet’s. Made with raw cow’s milk and aged about six months to develop a natural rind, it is nutty, buttery, dense and fudgy—neither too wimpy for blue cheese enthusiasts nor too bold for novices. A masterful blue much admired by cheese professionals. (7.5 oz)
