Mt Tam cheese is an organic, soft-ripened, triple-cream cheese made with pasteurized cow's milk from the Straus Family Dairy in California. The cheese is a combination of organic milk and cream. This lovely creamy treasure is named after the Mt. Tamalpais, just north of the San Francisco Bay in Marin County, California.
Mt Tam is one of our most popular triple cream cheeses, smooth, creamy and buttery and soft on the tongue. The cheese is relatively dense and firm, so unlike Bries and many other soft-ripened cheeses, Mt Tam does not ooze when cut into and at room temperature. The flavors of this artisanal gourmet cheese include hints of mushrooms, grass and hay and the aroma should be milky and pleasant.
Mt Tam cheese is not surprisingly a multiple award winner at the American Cheese Society competitions.
Try pairing Mt. Tam with a sparkling wine or a Champagne.
