Kunik; this cheese is unique in name and taste. It originates from a small farm by the name of Nettle Meadow in the Adirondacks. This farm is located in Thurman New York just below Crane Mountain. It is owned and operated by Lorraine Lambiase and Sheila Flanagan. Nettle Meadow is committed to the principles of natural ingredients, happy and healthy animals, and carefully hand-crafted artisan cheeses. Kunik was awarded a first place in the 2010 American Cheese Society Competition in the category Soft Ripened Cheese, Triple Creme.
This gourmet cheese is a white mold-ripened small wheel, made with goat's milk and Jersey cow cream. The grain and herbs on the menu at the Nettle Meadow farm are the secret to this triple creme cheese. Did we mention unique…. notes of wild raspberry leaf, nettle, kelp, comfrey, garlic, barley, and goldenrod. Kunik is far richer and more flavorful than a regular brie-type cheese, yet more subtle and sumptuous than similarly ripened goat cheeses.
Delicious on its own or served with fruit and crackers. A wonderful addition to any cheese plate. Complement Kunik with a sparkling wine.
