2nd PLACE SOFT RIPENED – AMERICAN CHEESE SOCIETY AWARDS 2023
A lightly stiff center when young, complimented by a buzz of tartness. As the cheese ripens, the pate develops a creamier flavor and texture. A hint of sweetness compliments a bit of hum in the finish. At 7-8 weeks, the cheese is fully ripe, soft and gooey, a definitive line shows off the soft edible rind. A murmur of sweetness balances the complex cheese.
We start by using the best milk that we can find in our area. This means we start making cheese with the freshest milk possible. No artificial colorings, preservatives, or additives are used in the cheese making process of our Camembert, which is all done by hand. This cheese is quite creamy from the start with hint of milky creaminess. As the cheese ripens it develops creamy undertones and buttery characteristics topped off with a nutty mouth feel. MouCo Camembert is fully aged at 7-8 weeks. At this point the cheese flavor is fully complex with butter, creamy and nuts in it`s flavor display. The cheese just begins to flow when left to warm to room temperature.
