When you remember the French cheese Morbier, you may recognize the Coppinger cheese, made by Sequatchie Cove Creamery. Nathan and Padgett Arnold are the owners of this small creamery that is 100 percent solar powered; they strive to be as sustainable as possible.
Coppinger Cheese is a velvety, semi-soft paste and is bisected by a layer of vegetable ash. It offers notes of fresh grass and smoked meats. The cheese is versatile enough to cook with or feature as part of a cheese plate.
Like Morbier, Coppinger is a washed rind cheese, stinky and aromatic, made from raw cow's milk. This Tennessee gourmet cheese is made in wheels of approx. 4 pounds; a little smaller than its original French counter part.
Pairs nicely with fruity lighter bodied reds, malty ales and stouts, pickled vegetables, bacon jam, and charcuterie. Try it melted on a burger or as the ultimate grilled cheese.
We hand-cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 1 pound and 8 ounces and you can also purchase an entire wheel of approximately 3.5 pounds.
Please note that wheels of cheese may vary slightly in weight; you will be charged for the actual weight of the wheel that you will receive.
