The wines were good. The cheeses were great as usual, made even nicer by the evening’s cheese girl, Anna Sheets. The three cheeses were:
Castello Dill Havarti. They describe it on their website as “A creamy, buttery and mild cheese, Castello® Havarti Dill has a subtle and incredibly fresh flavor. Small, aromatic green shoots of dill are distributed throughout the cheese, harmonizing perfectly to create a slightly tangy taste. The distinctive flavor of Castello® Havarti Dill continues to develop more character as it matures. The cheese features a soft and creamy consistency that allows for easy slicing.”
Next up was the Smith’s Farmstead Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil Gouda.
And the last was the Clawson’s Cotswold a double Glouchester with rehydrated onions and freeze-dried chives. Their website describes it as “generous flakes of chive and onion, Cotswold has a smooth texture, fresh aroma and lingering taste. It was one of the first blends launched by Clawson in the early 1970s and has remained a firm favourite. It is fantastic served simply in a crusty baguette sandwich, and also makes a versatile cooking ingredient.”
As usual, not a bad cheese served. All great. Next wine and cheese tasting at Wine World will be Third Thursday at 5-8, May 19th.
