31 Cheeses in 31 Days: Day Fifteen: Weybridge

2012 American Cheese Month 31 Cheeses in 31 Days: Day Fifteen: Weybridge

Cheese: Weybridge

Who: Patty and Roger Scholten, Scholten Family Farm, aged by Cellars at Jasper Hill

Website: Scholten Family Farm

Where: Weybridge, Vermont

Milk Type: cow, organic, pasteurized

Texture: soft

Rind: bloomy

Shape: 3.5oz wheel

Flavor:  center paste is bright citrus/acidic, creamline is buttery, toast, earthy mushrooms

Earlier this month you may recall my boredom with similar-style cheese made in America; however, Weybridge is an exception. A big exception. Weybridge immediately strikes you as more complex, richer. It hints at something more sinfully delicious. The cheese is better-balanced and the paste is mouth coating and smooth, more pleasant as it melts in your mouth. And there is a slight sweetness to Weybridge – a more transparent representation of the milk, perhaps. Today’s example was perhaps a tad young, aged another week or two and you’d see that creamline soften even more and the flavors grow more robust.

The Scholten farm raises and draws its melt from one of the more unusual cows you’ll ever see stateside, the “Dutch Belted“… call them the Oreo cookie of cattle breeds.

The Lakenvelder breed originated in Holland and is considered an excellent milking cow.

Weybridge is a winner of the 2012 Good Food Awards!

Salutation Recipes

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
