This Week at Saxelby Cheesemongers
The Return of the Goats!
Look out. The goats are back in town. From Lazy Lady Farm to Beltane Farm, there are goat cheeses galore at the shop starting later this week. After taking the winter off, all those does (ie lady goats) are back in action; and our palates are primed for some springtime cheese!
New Goats in Cheese Town:
Lazy Lady Farm Marbarella:
Many of you remember Trillium (a Lazy Lady creation consisting of layers of goats’ and cows’ milk) with a fondness bordering on obsession. Myself included. Well, Marbarella is the all goat version… three tiers of goats’ milk goodness separated by wispy layers of vegetable ash. A cheesy phenomenon not to be missed!
Beltane Farm Fresh Chevre:
How can something so simple taste so good?! The logs of fresh chevre from Beltane Farm are tangy, lightly sweet, and oh so wonderful. The craftsmanship of cheese maker Paul Trubey shines through with his delicate, creamy, and silky chevre. Use any excuse you can to treat yourself to a wee morsel.
Lazy Lady Farm La Roche:
A little bell shaped wonder from the talents that be up at Lazy Lady. Covered by a thin coat of downy white mold, the paste beneath is pure magic… tasting of goat, cut hay, and most important, a little bit o’barnyard.
