On the way out of Seattle I grabbed an awesome Washington State, Camembert-style called Dinah’s Cheese from Kurtwood Farms. I have never met Kurt, but everyone seems to love him and he’s buddies with one of my oldest friends.
And here it is in the Econolodge after reaching room temp.
Shari from the Calf and the Kid gave me a day-old loaf of bread to go with it and this was probably the best meal ever eaten in the Bellingham Econolodge. This is the real deal: rich, creamy, oniony, earthy and awesome.
I also stopped and visited the folks from Samish Bay Cheese on the way to Bellingham. We’ve been carry the Ladysmith on-and-off and I really like it as an (relatively) affordable organic fancy cheese. It reminds me a lot of the Bellwether Carmody,: fatty, satisfying, and milky.
Here’s the making of the Ladysmith:
Here’s the Ladysmith sitting around on a shelf.
And here’s Roger, the Samish Cheese guy
The farm was beautiful and Roger is doing what I would love other organic dairy farmers to do – making new, non-commodity-style organic cheese. We should be bringing a bunch in next month so if you are local, check it out.
So glad you loved it! I could seriously eat that cheese every day and never stop loving it, but it’s probably a good thing I don’t.
You must be a betetr person than me, I could NEVER give up cheese. I love it too much!
Hope you can get some of that Dinah’s, too; it looks and sounds wownderful.
