Hailing from Italy, mozzarella is a mild, white fresh cheese thats made by the special pasta filata process, whereby the curd is dipped into hot whey, then stretched to the desired consistency. At one time, mozzarella was made only from the milk of water buffaloes. Today, however, the majority of it is made with cows milk. Fresh Mozzarella is not cured in brine or aged like the low-moisture Mozzarella more familiar to most of us. The moist, sweet, tender, milky, nutty and buttery flavor, and springy, yielding texture, is unlike that of any other dairy product. The different sizes of fresh mozzarella relate best to the sizes of fresh tomatoes since it naturally is a gastronomical match made in heaven. Fresh mozzarella is always packed in water.` Its generally made from whole milk and has a much softer texture and a sweet, delicate flavor. Its excellent simply spread on bread with salt, pepper and a little olive oil.
Local lawyer Tapping Reeve formed the Litchfield Law School in the late 18th century, educating scores of politicians and justices who would go on to shape a fledgling nation. What better way to honor that legacy than with a cheese? We hit the history books and developed a savory Colonial-style cheese to please the most discerning connoisseur past or present. Our Tapping Reeve is both sharp and refined, not unlike its namesake.
This is a full bodied cheese with a nutty flavor and smooth texture. The cheese is hand rubbed with a Turkish grind of Colorado Legacy Coffee Company`s (The Cheesemakers brother) `Beehive Blend`. The blend consists of a mix of South American, Central American, and Indonesian beans roasted to different styles. French Superior Lavendar buds are ground with the coffee and the mixture is diluted with oil to suspend the dry ingredients in the rub. The rub imparts notes of butterscotch and caramel which are prevalent near the rind, but find their way to the center of the cheese. The cheese is aged on Utah Blue Spruce aging racks in our humidity controlled caves, and moved to different temperature during the aging process to develop texture and flavor. The name `Barely Buzzed` comes from Andrea at Deluxe Foods in California. She was the winner of the name this cheese contest.
