Santa Fe Farmers Market Favorites – Artisan Cheeses
Taking Care of your Cheese
These cheeses are best stored in the refrigerator. Plastic wrap the cheese tightly to keep the air off as they can dry out or grow mold. If you have a vacu seal this works best for resealing the cheese and storing them in the refrigerator.
If you are doing a beer or wine pairing, these cheeses will make an awesome choice.
Cheddar /McIntosh – best served with an IPA (it really cuts back on the hoppy flavor of the beer. When combined the beer enhances the cheese flavor. As for wine we recommend a fruity champaign or a Sauvignon with a grapefruit subtlety, like Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc.
Smoked Gouda /Sandia Sunrise Smoked Gouda – pairs nicely with a stout or a red ale. I suggest topping a french onion soup or a grilled portabello mushroom and a slice of beef steak tomatoe.
Both cheeses make a great Mac & Cheese, Grilled Cheese Sandwich or top a nice toasty bread.
