Cheese of the Month – Tomme Fermier d’Alsace

Tomme Fermiere d'AlsaceA firm, washed rind, aged cow’s milk cheese from the Alsace region of France. This smoothly textured cheese offers a bold flavor that is complemented nicely by a chilled Riesling (try Milbrandt, Flat Rock Cellars or Trimbach from Stewart’s Spirits). Washed with light fruity Alsation wine. This dramatically accentuates the lactic flavors and helps it develop long, fruity notes with hints of mushrooms, grasses and butter.
