This Week's Tasting: August 21, 2018
Every week at Dairymaids ( Huston Texas )we select six cheeses to include in our free cheese tasting. Whenever we are open, we are tasting cheese. We stock over 150! Fior d'Arancio is a special blue from Italian cheesemaker Sergio Moro. He pierces the young cow's milk cheese, places it in barrels, and then bathes it in Fior d'Arancio DOCG - a sweet wine produced with Moscato grapes grown in volcanic soil - for about 30 days. It is then left to finish aging on wooden planks. The wine helps the cheese develop aromas of stone fruits, honey, and orange blossom, all encased in a lush, full flavored paste.
