As stated time and time again, the summer is a peak cheese eating time in the MM household. The lovely wife is an excellent entertainer and party planner, and we are routinely serving 20 people at our house on a Saturday night. We have been able to experiment with the cheese's we have been buying for some time now, and I am always happy to report on the favorites.
Roth Kase, as noted previously, is the largest artisinal cheese maker in the United States. While I know that "large" and "artisinal" do not always go together, I have been two for two on their cheeses that I have tried. The latest is their Sole Gran Queso. This heese, which is similar to a Manchego, was really quite tasty with some red wine, some crackers, and, amazingly enough, a banana. The lovely wife complimented it as well, and she a much tougher judge of cheese than I am. As you can see from the photograph, its not overly expensive, either. So, in these times of recession and poor exchange rates, think American! Help support our nascent fine cheese industry!
