Over a cheese plate last night at Jardiniere, Midnight Moon cheese from Cypress Grove in Arcata seduced me. I'm in love!
Firm goat milk cheese... aged one year... bloomy rind. Tastes faintly of cave aged gruyere but is nuttier, smoother, yet has a very satisfying sharp tang all its own.
It's truly special!! And yet I could easily eat it every single day.
I see from the Cypress Grove Web site that it's new. I hope to see it at the Cowgirl Creamery stand this weekend!!!!
