Our Featured Gourmet Washed Rind Cheese
Bayley Hazen Blue is an American artisanal blue cheese with a stable natural rind. It is made with whole raw Ayrshire milk and aged for approximately 75 days.
This farmstead cheese from Jasper Hill Farm in Vermont is made with the Roquefort mold, but reminds you of Stilton. It is a Old World Style Cheese with a New World Style Twist.The cheese is drier and crumblier than most blue cheeses and its texture reminds one of chocolate and butter. Bayley Hazen Blue was awarded a second place in Open Category Farmstead Cheese at the American Cheese Society Competition of 2007.
We cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of approximately 1 pound and 8 ounces. read more...
Browse our great selection of Gourmet Washed Rind Cheeses. Washed rind cheeses are typically bathed or washed with salted water, wine, brandy or local spirits. The washing or bathing helps to break down the curd from the outside. The washing process also helps cheeses to retain moisture, and develop a powerful flavor. The cheese becomes soft and thick and the rind becomes part of the cheese. The color changes to reddish or yellowish. These pungent, stinky cheeses often have a smooth and creamy interior. Try them and let us know what you think by giving us your opinion in a product review.
