A Thing for Spring
Aromas and flavors of fresh earth and flowers, herbs and green rinds, cheeses that are young and fresh…these are all signs of spring.
- Cypress Grove Purple Haze
This beautiful little fresh goat cheese from California is so refreshing, it’s like eating sunshine. The tartness of the goat cheese is married with lavender and fennel pollen, giving it a floral and herbaceous quality.
- Chevre Mousse
This fluffy chevre from France is so light, it melts on the palate. It is exquisite with a little bit of honey drizzled over it and topped with Marcona Almonds.
- Pyrenees with Peppercorns
We love this attractive cheese on a springtime cheeseboard for its green wax. An added bonus is that it tastes great and has a slight punch from whole black peppercorns.
- d’Affinois with Herbs
Rich, creamy, green and herbaceous, this cheese screams spring both in its flavor and its grass-colored rind.
