From the top left going clockwise: Bufala Casatica (Buffalo Brie come around the outside! Around the outside!*), Cowgirl Mt Tam, Jasper Hill Bayley Hazen Blue, Coach Farm Triple Cream Goat, Lazy Lady Sweet Emotion**, A Swiss Alpage*** cheese so rare and expensive that I immediately forgot its name, Marieke Gouda with Foenegreek.
And here is the Dutch Oven that Santa brought us (so colorful that it makes our oven look really bad. No criticism accepted unless you too live in an apartment where turning on the oven is your main source of heat)
I’d show you the pot roast that Stagey cooked but I took the photos too close and they look more like turds than tasty meat.
What cheese did you serve for the holidays?
**This article has the awesomest cheesemaker quote ever. Take heed wanna-be back-to-the-landers: ““No friends, no social life. My only other communication is with other cheese makers. And the farmers’ market.”
***Alpage means it’s from the highest elevation the Alpine cows are grazing at, considered the best, richest, tastiest milk of the year.
