|Organic Cheese Takes “Best in Show”… Again!|
|Written by Juliana Weiss-Roessler|
“Mike [Gingrich] only makes this one cheese, and he only makes it when his own herd of cows are on fresh clovers, grasses, herbs, and flowers,” says Krich.
Gingrich has really gone back to the basics. The single herd of cattle that is used to make the cheese are managed using natural, “old world” practices, and the aging techniques used are those developed during the Middle Ages when cheese was aged in limestone caves!
The result is a cheese that is reminiscent of French Gruyere-style with sweet flavors of pasture grasses and wildflowers. It’s usually eaten as a table cheese, and is great in soups, fondues, gratins, omelets, or as an appetizer in itself. You can watch Kirch try the cheese along with Laura Klein in this video.
