Tomme du Haut-Richelieu

Remember what this cheese looks like now…the wedge may not last very long.

With a natural craggy rind and a contrasting ivory paste, Tomme du Haut-Richelieu is a knockout on a cheese plate. It boasts a barnyard aroma and the primary taste is a sure bet that it’s a goat cheese, however, people who do not like goat won’t be able to resist this one…The paste is rich and milky, melting easily in the mouth. The finish is short, fresh and grassy.

This is the second cheese I have profiled from Fritz Kaiser. His ability to make his cheese consistent and uniform each time makes it easy to buy.

Pair with a wheat beer or pilsner on the patio.
