Cheese Reviews: Part 2
We picked three very different types of cow's milk cheeses for my second installment of tasting notes (the first is here). Unfortunately, I suspect our local cheese shop mislabeled the first selection - so much for my methodical cataloguing. Andante Dairy in Sonoma, CA does not offer a product named Alto (and none match up in appearance, either); other cheeses by that name are definitely not of the washed-rind, raw-milk variety. No matter: it's not one we would (knowingly) buy again, as it didn't meet the bar set by my gold standard of washed-rind raw-milk cheese (Hudson Red).
