Cheese - y

La Rustichella Sheep Tartufo Molitero - an aged raw sheep's milk cheese from Italy. With black truffles. Crumbly. Sheepy (i.e., mild). With delicious, delicious black truffles. Overall, an amazing cheese. It went very well with panchetta, as well as with the pickled habaneros.

Igor Gorgonzola Dolce - Creamy, creamy gorgonzola. With prosciutto and red pepper stuffed olives, it is very, very good. Almost as good as St. Agur. Almost.

Midnight Moon - An aged (1 year) goat cheese from Holland made using a gouda recipe. I must say that I liked the smell, but wasn't a huge fan of this cheese. It might have been that I was looking for something other than goat flavored gouda to go with my prosciutto and garlic stuffed olives, but I'm still not sure I would have liked it. The gouda overpowered the goat and the gouda wasn't that great. I like my gouda at least 3 years old (preferably 5) and crumbly, not creamy.
