Pairing :: How 'bout them Apples?
Raspberry // This very special Gruyere comes to us from Le Pierrefeu in the Bernese Jura from a farm that is home to only 46 cows, and we were able to get our hands on it through the very cool Adopt An Alp program. This particular Gruyere has a very savory, unique flavor that is recognizable but somehow totally its own.
Rose // Cantal is one of the oldest cheeses in France dating to the times of the Gaul’s rule. It received an Appellation d'Origine (AOC) status from the administrative region of Cantal in the Auvergne region in 1956. It is fresh, sweet, milky in flavour with a light hint of hazelnut, and vanilla.
Lavender // Moses Sleeper is a Jasper Hill Creamery original, inspired by classic, French Brie. This cheese’s historic namesake, Moses Sleeper, and his compatriot, Constant Bliss, were Revolutionary War scouts killed while defending a blockhouse along the Northeast Kingdom’s legendary Bayley Hazen Military Road. A bright, clean finish with a hint of white mushroom aroma follows the rich flavors of the paste.
Pear Cider // Bleu d'Auvergne is a French blue cheese named after its place of origin in the Auvergne region of south-central France. The cheese can be made from raw or pasteurized milk and is sometimes attributed as cow’s milk version of Roquefort (although it is much creamier and buttery). It was awarded AOC status in 1975 and is available in both artisanal and industrial versions. The rind is moist and sticky unveiling a soft paste with a grassy, herbaceous, and (with age) spicy, peppery, salty, pungent taste.
