At a recent celebration hosted by my family, a couple of friends were charged with bringing a cheese plate. They showed up with some good stuff like a wine-soaked cheddar and a Blue Castello, but the standout was Cypress Grove’s Truffle Tremor, a ripened goat’s milk cheese flecked with truffle pieces. Our friends had driven about 40 minutes to the party, and in that time the cheese had warmed up to a perfect serving temperature, becoming soft and oozy, and we could smell truffle and goatiness through the plastic wrap. We devoured it right off.
