Menu for the Week of October 12, 2012 — Cheese, Cheese, Glorious Cheese!

Menu for the Week of October 12, 2012 — Cheese, Cheese, Glorious Cheese!

For those of you who don’t follow us on Facebook, we wanted to use this post to tell everyone about our efforts to increase our cheese inventory as the holidays approach!  Most of you know Scott Stroud, of The Cheese Course, who also mans the retail shop during the week.  If you haven’t had a chance to talk to him about all of the cheeses he’s mongering for The Spotted Trotter, we certain encourage you to do so!  The selections are getting more robust each week — so much so that he forced us to give him more room in the meat case!

First,  staying domestic, we have Cabot Clothbound Cheddar in stock. Made in a traditional English bandaged style and aged at the Cellars at Jasper Hill, the texture is firm and flakey with an earthy flavor that finishes with a tart, slightly pineapple note. We have also brought in a lovely, washed rind cheese from von Trapp Farmstead called ‘Oma’.  Made with raw milk, the texture is soft without being runny and the flavor is beefy, slightly earthy yet buttery (raw milk shining through again).

On the import side we have some Pecorino di Pienza fresco. From Pienza, Tuscany’s most heralded city for cheese, this pasteurized sheep’s milk cheese is shipped at 30 days of age so it retains pliant, semi-soft texture with a full sweet sheep’s milk flavor that still carries the taste of lanolin. Great with medium to full bodied red wines or on your pizza.

Will you be serving meats and cheeses to start off your Thanksgiving!?!

Stay Hungry Atlanta!
