A flower-shaped creamy cheese from Lena Illinois. This cute cheese is mild and creamy with a soft white mold exterior, tinted orange. A milky flavor is underlined by sweet, buttery, and mushroom notes.
In 1953, Dorothy Demeter was the first woman to graduate with a dairy industry degree from the Iowa State program. She was known to work tirelessly or, as they say, until the cows came home, perfecting her soft-ripened cheeses. The current cheesemaker at Dorothy's Cheese is Dorothy's apprentice Bob, who works with her son and nephew to continue her legacy. Comeback Cow is one of her most unusual cheeses.
Pair it with croissants, soft rolls, melons or grapes. It’s always ready for a party, enjoyed with a Bourgogne, Cabernet, or Medoc wine.
