A Wisconsin Legend
Grayson from Meadow Creek Dairy
La Tur is an Italian robiola-style of cheese that looks like a cupcake.
It’s blessed with a captivating mix of textures: the center is dense and cakey,
cushioned by a layer of frosting-like ooze and a pillowy-rind.
It’s a total butterball with enough complexity
to keep you constantly yearning for another lick.
These two pieces of cheese might not look alike, but they’re both cheddars.
The one on the left is from Wisconsin, and the other is from Scotland.
One’s smooth and meltable, and the other’s crumbly and grassy.
But both cheeses are from the same cheddar family.
So why do they look and taste so different?…
Gjetost (yeh-toast) is a traditional brown cheese from Norway that tastes a lot
like butterscotch and sticks to the roof of your mouth like peanut butter.
It’s not fancy, it doesn’t have mold, and it’s not even really cheese –
but It’s damned delicious….
Triple creams are the most crowd-pleasing cheeses out there.
They’re made with added cream and have a fat content of 75%* or more,
creating a texture as plush and yielding as softened butter.
One of my fav triple creams is Mt Tam from Cowgirl Creamery in Petaluma, California.
