Bella and the Bay Blue Cheese
Hi everyone. Just a quick word before Bella takes over.
We recently got to taste the final version of the new Bay Blue from Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese.
Oh my goodness! What a great cheese! We tasted an early version of this new cheese about two years ago and… – what?
Okay, okay – Bella is pulling at my leg – here she is.
Well, hello cheese lovers! I thought Wally was never gonna stop. There’s a lot of aroma here right now and I’ve got to hurry or he’ll be trying to stash that cheese away somewhere. Oh, if only you could smell what I’m smelling! Of course, you can’t. Even if you were here, your nose is no match for mine.
But about the cheese. I’m in love. Again.
I’m still in love with their original Point Reyes Blue. The lovely creaminess that follows after that great sharp beginning. Mmmm.
But this Bay Blue is different.
Not quite so pungent at the start and drier, but oh, it’s melting in my mouth! Slightly more salty. Oooh and I smell butter. And something sweet, too. Like sweet cream. Maybe a touch of cherry. But – Hey! Where are you going with that cheese?
Sorry – I’ve got to run. Fast. Smell ya later!
