Cheese of the Moment:
Point Reyes Gouda
Selection by milk: Cow, Vegetarian Rennet
Milk Treatment: Pasteurized
Aged over 18 months, this is an ideal California version of the aged Dutch Gouda: sweet, sharp, and salty.
A family dairy since the 1950's founded by father Bob Giacomini, the dairy expanded into cheesemaking in 2000 to bring the daughters into the mix.
This award-winning cheese is made from pasteurized, rBST-free cows’ milk for a creamy yet slightly crystalized texture with pops of complex flavor notes, including hazelnut, caramel, butterscotch, and cooked cream.
Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Co. is highlighting its Gouda cheese as an excellent choice for the center of Father's Day festivity cheese boards.
Because of these flavor notes, Point Reyes Farmstead envisions the perfect cheese board to include charcuterie novelties like hazelnuts, toasted almonds, and artisanal honey, all of which complement its Gouda. The cheesemaker also suggested Scotch, bourbon, sweeter white wines, and craft beers.
You have to be a romantic to invest yourself, your money and your time in cheese.
