Community Supported Cheese MAY 2017: Tomme aux 3 Laits

from 10.00

MAY 2017 SELECTION : TOMME AUX TROIS LAITS

Pick up Party Date: Wednesday May 17th, 6:30pm at Cyril's.

The Basics:

Nothing pleases me more than a crowd-pleasing cheese. Working with all three milks is a great way to satisfy a range of palates and this month's cheese definitely accomplishes that. The paste is semi-firm and reminiscent of cheeses made in the French Pyrenees (think Abbaye de Belloc, Tomme Chebris). Our wheels are made by a small cooperative creamery in Larzac which is in the Grand Causses range. Typically this cooperative is known for its beautiful sheep milk cheeses (Tomme L'Estaing, Lou Bren, La Marotte) but clearly they also understand how to mix milks too. 

The cooperative works with award-winning affineur Rudolphe LeMeunier who matures and distributes a number of their cheeses. This cheese is perfect for May in Portland because you will want to eat it whether you're nestled on a couch inside because it's stormy and gray out, or you've just crested a rocky outcropping on one side of the gorge and it's time for a snack. We hope to see you at the pick up party!

Pick up Party: Wednesday, May 17th. 6:30pm at Cyril's.
